900 Unregistered And/or Illegal ATVs and Dirt Bikes Crushed in NYC

June 21, 2022, marked the first official day of summer on many North American calendars. In New York City, though, it also marked the day that Mayor Adams and Police Commissioner Sewell oversaw the city’s annual ATV and Dirt Bikes crushing event. This year, they said, around 900 ATVs and Dirt Bikes were scheduled to meet their ultimate demise at the hands of a bulldozer operator, AMERiders had the story for you.

While the city itself didn’t characterize this as an annual event, a quick glance backward through news stories and videos going back to at least 2016 reveals it to be such. Unlike most holidays, it doesn’t take place on the same day every year—but under the watchful eyes of more than one NYC mayor, it’s become as regular an occurrence as ceremonial ribbon-cuttings and holiday decoration-lighting events. 

ATVs and Dirt Bikes

The event itself was pretty straightforward. In the video, you see Mayor Adams waving a checkered flag—which is apparently a holdover from former mayor de Blasio’s brand of showmanship at such events, according to Vice Motherboard. Then, the bulldozer begins crushing the assembled group of mostly bikes, some of what look to be scooters, and some ATVs, having to back up once to realign after a bike gets a little bit stuck. Soon, though, it’s through the entire row, and they’re all knocked to the ground and significantly damaged. 

ATVs and Dirt Bikes

The accompanying press conference was less straightforward. In it, Mayor Adams talked a lot about general traffic safety, as well as public transit safety and police patrols on NYC subway platforms. He started out talking about how the bikes and quads the city was about to crush would no longer terrorize the streets of NYC, and how the NYPD has already seized 2,000 illegal bikes and ATVs this year. He says that’s an 80 percent increase over the same time last year.  

During the question-and-answer portion of the press conference, someone asked the mayor a really good question: Why isn’t there a space for the kids (as the questioner characterized them) to be able to ride these bikes, “like a track or an exclusive park and something that might not lead to antagonizing between them and police officers wanting to take their bike?”

The mayor then deflected, saying that while they’re looking at spaces in the city to do something like that, the main focus is intervention right now—in other words, confiscating unregistered and/or illegal ATV and Dirt Bikes , then destroying them. He then went on to add that he, personally, loved riding dirt bikes as a child and that he thinks it’s crucial to have those spaces. As we know, though—saying you think something’s a great idea and then doing it are two different things. You can say whatever you want, but ultimately, it’s what you do in the end that matters.  

Remember when skateboarding was painted as some type of menace because kids were doing it wherever and whenever it suited them? Remember how it eventually became a thing where cities and towns started making public skate parks a part of their communities, and how now it’s just a fun outdoor pastime that some people like to do?  

The same thing could happen with so-called “nuisance” ATVs and dirt bikes if there was the political will and the follow-through to do it. I mean, who wants their ATV or bike crushed? No one. A solution like this could be a win for everyone. 

ATVs and Dirt Bikes

“Today, as we stand in the shadow of the Freedom Tower, we are freeing ourselves from these destructive pieces of machinery that’s on our streets,” Adams added.

“They will be crushed today so they can never terrorize our city again, each and every one of them,” he said. “They will be turned into scrap metal and eventually recycled.”

This Custom Iron Hunter Sportster Is a Ladies Bike Through & Through

Like it or hate it, the reality is that most of the time custom motorcycles (and cars, by extension), are male-centric projects. They are ordered and executed by men, for men to enjoy. From time to time, though, a special custom, one designed to fulfill the wants and needs of women, comes along and breaks the mold. However, we at AMERiders agree that this custom bike is a ladies bike through and through.

The heavily converted 2014 Harley-Davidson Sportster we have here is a perfect example of that. It was put together by a Polish garage called Nine Hills Motorcycles and was commissioned by the wife of the shop’s top man. That means with this ladies bike “there was no room for a mistake,” as the guy says, but also that three main design lines had to be followed.

The first and most important was for the motorcycle to no longer resemble a Sportster. Thanks to the body modifications made, which include the replacing of the “boring” fuel tank, the conversion of the rear, the fitting of new fenders, and the replacing of the stock exhaust with one supplied by Kodlin, that box was successfully checked.

Then, the bike had to “be great and even better to look” at, so a stunning paint job was chosen, with detailing that is a sort of replica of the Martini livery we are all so familiar with from the racing world. That was topped off by carefully chosen details, such as the motogadget instrumentation, aluminum shifters, and “1,000 other things.”

Last, but not least, the bike had to have “a coherent, uniform, sporty line,” and if you look at how the bike looked before and how it looks after the conversion (check the gallery for that), it becomes immediately clear that objective was achieved as well.

The converted Sportster was nicknamed by the shop Iron Hunter, and as usual, we’re not told how much it cost to put together.

A New Knitted Titanium Exhaust Sleeve by DEI Could Protect You From Burns

It’s obvious that motorcycle engines are very, very hot, and so, too, are their pipes. In fact, nearly all motorcyclists out there will have at least a couple of scars thanks to unwanted contact with their bike’s exhaust pipes. Many solutions exist to address the issue of the heat of the exhaust pipes—from heat shields, exhaust wraps, and even ceramic paint. All these go a long way in keeping you from getting burned by your pipes. A new one by DEI is going to be especially helpful and AMERiders has information on it for you.

Yet another technology designed specifically to prevent heat transfer comes from Design Engineering, Inc. (DEI) in the form of its new Titanium Knitted Sleeves. Initially designed for automotive applications and to protect vulnerable components from heat damage, there’s no doubt that this effective and surprisingly good-looking product will have numerous applications for us motorcycle enthusiasts.

dei

DEI initially developed the product to be used on turbochargers, intercoolers, and exhaust piping for cars. It previously came in 12-inch and 24-inch lengths meant for pipes measuring 4 to 5 inches in diameter—sizes that are way too big even for the largest of motorcycles. Now, DEI is offering the sleeves in a smaller size meant to fit pipes with 3 to 3.5-inch diameters, and up to 36 inches in length. This makes it perfect for the headers, mid-pipes, and link pipes of most modern-day motorbikes.

Perhaps the best part of all this is the fact that DEI’s sleeves actually look really nice—kinda like a little scarf for your exhaust pipe. So, if you’re one who isn’t particularly a fan of the look of exhaust wraps, this is certainly a cleaner, more aesthetically pleasing option for you. Furthermore, DEI claims that the sleeves have a max temperature rating of 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit, and a continuous heat rating of up to 1,382 degrees Fahrenheit, so even the hottest of pipes from the most overheat-prone Ducatis are easy to pick for the knitted titanium sleeve.

dei

Additionally, DEI’s product has passed a battery of flammability, burn, and even salt spray tests for robustness, durability, and reliability, and will not damage the pipes underneath them. As for pricing, depending on the size, you could purchase a DEI Knitted Titanium Sleeve for as low as $38 USD.

2020-2022 Kawasaki KLX230 Bikes May Recall

AMERiders has news for you that 2020-2022 Kawasaki KLX230 Bikes May have a recall as a front brake disc for a different model was installed on affected bikes by mistake. The ones affected will be switched to the correct one.

On June 6, 2022, Kawasaki Motors Corporation USA issued a safety recall for 2020-2022 KLX230 ABS and KLX230 S ABS motorcycles. The issue? An incorrectly sized front brake disc may have been installed. This error could lead to insufficient braking force when using the front brake, which could increase the risk of a crash. 

Approximately 1,923 units are believed to be affected, which represents an estimated one percent of the population. Kawasaki is a manufacturer that sells its vehicles in multiple markets, which may have different specifications and legal requirements for parts on vehicles. In this case, according to Kawasaki’s records, the front brake disc for a different market may have incorrectly been installed on some bikes. Affected bikes were produced between June 17, 2019, and February 17, 2022, with VINs ranging from MH4LXCA13LJP00012 to MH4LXCA10MJP00955 and from MH4LXCG19NJP00042 to MH4LXCG14NJP01096. 

2020-2022 Kawasaki KLX230

Under the terms of this recall, authorized Kawasaki dealers will replace the incorrect front brake disc with the correct one. They will also replace the old front brake pads with a new set. If you’re an affected KLX230 ABS or KLX230 S ABS owner who had already experienced a failure and has paid for repairs, you may be eligible for reimbursement. However, you’ll need to send your owner and VIN information, as well as appropriate service orders and proof of payment for the same to Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. ATTN: Customer Care P. O. Box 25252 Santa Ana, California 92799-5252.

This Harley-Davidson Good Luck Charm by Bad Land Is Made in Japan

In Italian, the word fortuna stands for good luck. It’s a word so powerful the ancient Romans used it to describe their goddess of fortune and good luck. And, as of last month, it is also a word that describes a Harley-Davidson FXST originally produced back in 2005. AMERiders explains and gives you a run down on this beautiful bike.

Going for such a name probably doesn’t come easy, as it implies what the bike’s maker and its owner expect from it: to be some sort of good luck charm for whoever rides it into the sunset. And it probably also wasn’t easy given how the bike’s customizer, Bad Land, comes from a land where Italian is not exactly a widespread language: Japan.

Name aside, you’re looking at one of the most recent interpretations of American bikes coming from the Land on the Rising Sun. Shown for the first time last month, the Harley-Davidson Fortuna distinguishes itself through several unique features and appointments.

First up, we’ve got a large number of Bad Land-made bits and pieces that went into the making of the Fortuna. More hands-on than usual, the garage provided from its own vaults anything from the two fenders and front wheel to the triple tree, exhaust, and paint job.

The rear wheel, a 250 mm wide one, is of Rick’s Motorcycles make, and just like the front one, comes wrapped in an Avon Cobra tire. Behind each of them sits a braking system mixing Misumi Engineering and Brembo braking hardware. Another big name in the custom motorcycle industry, Ken’s Factory, supplied the mirrors, covers, and LED turn signals.

Whereas as far as we can tell the engine of the bike remains the stock one, Bad Land did tamper a bit with the bike’s frame, for it to be able to accommodate the changes made (check the gallery for that), but also with the swingarm of the thing.

We are not told how much this oversized good luck charm cost to put together.

Harley-Davidson’s 120TH Anniversary Festival Will Be in Hungary.

Back in April, we talked about Harley-Davidson’s 120th Anniversary Festival, and how it would be a huge event. We now know that the four-day event will take place in Budapest, Hungary, several weeks before the Harley Homecoming. AMERiders has the extra information for you on this huge event.

We all have those friends that commandeer an entire weekend for their birthday celebrations. Apparently, Harley-Davidson is one of those friends, but if you were turning 120 years old, you’d expect that type of commitment as well. Established in 1903, the Motor Company will complete its 120th trip around the sun in 2023.

The firm will mark that momentous occasion with the Harley-Davidson Homecoming taking place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on July 13-16, 2023. The MoCo hasn’t revealed the various venues and events comprising the commemorative weekend, but if the brand’s 115th Anniversary Celebration was any indication, we can expect parties, food & drink, music, racing, and group rides.

While short on details, the early announcement allows riders from all over the U.S. and abroad to arrange travel and lodging well ahead of time. However, if you can’t make it to the States, Harley-Davidson’s European 120th Anniversary Celebration may be the best alternative. Held in Budapest, Hungary, on June 22-25, 2023, the European event will occur several weeks before the Harley-Davidson Homecoming.

Similar to the U.S. leg, though, organizers haven’t revealed the full itinerary for the Budapest gathering just yet. We anticipate the four-day festival to feature entertainment and dining options aimed at unifying the Harley faithful while also drawing in brand converts. The Bar and Shield recently re-established its commitment to the European market with the Pan Am, Sportster S, and Nightster models, and the 120th Anniversary Celebration gives fans an opportunity to recognize the newly introduced platforms.

Both events may be over one year away, but Harley will rally the troops with The Road to Harley-Davidson Homecoming challenge in the interim. The promotional event runs through September 2022 and encourages participants to complete activities and challenges for the chance to win prizes. Harlistas from near and far can win a grand-prize trip to the Harley-Davidson Homecoming 120th Anniversary party in Milwaukee next summer. Whether you’re a long-time Hog rider or dipping your toe into the H-D pool, both the Homecoming and 120th Anniversary European Celebration are great ways to celebrate all things, Harley-Davidson.

Want a Barely Legal Ride? Try This V-Rod 330 Wide Wheeled Baby On.

Over the years, our journey through the world of custom Harley-Davidson motorcycles has taught us plenty of things. Among them, is the fact that no matter the country the shops customizing Harleys come from, they generally follow the same design rules. So we here at AMERiders really want to know if you want a Barely Legal Ride then try this wide wheeled Baby on for size.

One such rule would be that, regardless of the base motorcycle used, the stock rear wheel must go, and be replaced by something beefier, and absolutely wider. We generally see shops go for 280 mm wide pieces of hardware, but 300 mm ones are also a regular occurrence, especially on V-Rods.

But how about 330 mm wheels and tires? They’re possible, of course, but I personally have to admit the one we have here is the first one I came across.

It was fitted on a 2014 Night Rod by a Spanish crew known as Lord Drake Kustoms. As per the shop’s own admission, slapping the massive wheel onto the Harley required homologation ( which is the granting of approval by an official authority. This may be a court of law, a government department, or an academic or professional body, any of which would normally work from a set of rules or standards to determine whether such approval should be given.), as 330 is the maximum admitted in the country for road-legal motorcycles.

Both the wide rear wheel and the front one are of American make, being produced by RC Components, and are backed by suitable brake discs and pulley. The bike, which is now called VROD 330 for obvious reasons, sports other changes as well, to make sure the insanity fitted at the back does not go unnoticed.

The bike was gifted with custom fenders, a license plate bracket, and a seat. The handlebars are Biltwell, the turn signals motogadget, and we’ve got LED tail lights of an undisclosed make.

Engine-wise, the stock powerplant of the two-wheeler does not seem to have been modified, with the exception of the exhaust, which has also been reworked.

The VROD 330 is one of the most recent Lord Drake projects and was built at the request of a customer. We do not know how much they paid for the Night Rod to get this special treatment.

This Green Hell Looks Like It Could Take Anything at the Nürburgring

For motorsport enthusiasts (and car lovers in general), there is no other track as famous in this world than the Nürburgring (also called Green Hell), the German location where all wonderful cars of recent times have been tested, broke records, and entered the history books. And we here at AMERiders think this bike could take anything at that Track or well it looks like it.

The place will forever remain linked in public conscience with four-wheeled, fast-moving contraptions, but motorcycles make it there also. Just not this one, despite its more than the obvious choice of name.

The Nürburgring’s moniker dates back to 1968, a time when the place was still hosting Formula 1 races and was used by Sir Jackie Stewart. For some reason, it stuck, and it expanded to include special builds with any number of wheels.

green hell

One motorcycle named Green Hell, and meant to be an actual tribute to the German track, is this one here. Put together by a shop from the same country, and called Augustin Motorcycles, it would make for quite the stunning presence at any track, not only the Nürburgring.

Like most other custom bikes, some of which we’ve already featured here on AMERiders, the Green Hell uses a massive monotube frame with an integrated fuel tank, making it look particularly aggressive. The rounded frame holds a Harley Davidson TC103A engine, running an Ultima 6-speed transmission and a chain secondary drive.

The engine spins 18-inch 5-spoke wheels, and stopping power is ensured by means of a combination between Brembo and Performance Machine hardware. The build rocks for maximum effect a progressive suspension system and a single-sided swingarm at the rear.

Once assembled, this thing, made almost from scratch, ended up measuring 2,370 mm (93 inches) long and 910 mm (36 inches) high. It tips the scale at 450 kg (992 pounds).

One very important number is missing from the bike’s presentation, and that would be its price. But, just as with the racetrack it was named after, you can’t really put a price on performance.

Okay, you can, but it doesn’t really matter.

Thunderbike’s Night Club Has an Impressive Sibling in Silver Club.

One thing motorcycles have over cars is the relative ease with which they can be converted into something else entirely. Provided one has the proper tools, proper ideas, and proper crew, a custom motorcycle shop could spit out projects at a much higher rate than any auto counterpart is capable of. Thunderbike is one of these shops and they prove it with the Silver Club. AMERiders thinks it is a beautiful bike.

Born about 30 years ago over in Germany, they’ve been at it so hard that the number of projects they spat out, some built from scratch, others based on Harley-Davidsons, number in the hundreds. Show me a custom car garage that can say that!

One of the latest addition to this impressive fleet is an older Fat Boy, made relevant once again through some carefully planned modifications. Called Silver Club, it is part of Thunderbike’s series of power cruisers, including the Clubman, Night Club, Dark Dozer, and Black Bull.

For this one, the shop went for a relatively simple look, with no unnecessary adornments, but with an effective tone-on-tone silver paint, offset on the forks, engine covers, wheels, and running boards by a black hue.

The list of added extras is only a little over 20 items long. It includes a fiberglass front fender and a steel rear one, custom covers for various elements of the two-wheeler, and much other minor hardware, like grips, lights, and brackets.

Mechanically, the bike was not significantly changed, but it did get a shock and fork lowering kit for a more aggressive stance and a Dr. Jekill & Mr. Hyde exhaust system for a more aggressive growl.

Thunderbike is not in the habit of letting the world know how much its builds cost, but they do list the prices for the parts used (the list of parts is most likely incomplete), and, in this case, the total amounts to close to 6,000 euros, which is about $6,300.

The 1ST 100 Units of Livewires’s S2 Del Mar Sell Out in 18 Minutes

LiveWire’s second electric motorcycle was recently unveiled by Harley-Davidson’s electric branch and the Launch Edition of the S2 Del Mar that sold out in 18 minutes AMERiders has the story for you.

When LiveWire launched its first electric model, namely the One, it was received with a somewhat stand-offish attitude, justified by the bike’s hefty price tag. Now, the opposite just happened with the S2 Del Mar, which is the manufacturer’s second electric motorcycle. Available to pre-order in a Launch Edition that was limited to just 100 units, the bike sold like hotcakes in just 18 minutes, with all 100 motorcycles being already reserved.

There’s of course an explanation behind that. In addition to flaunting a highly appealing design, with the bike being available in both Comet Indigo and Jasper Gray colorways, the S2 Del Mar comes at a more affordable price than its predecessor. The Launch Edition, which is equipped with an exclusive wheelset, costs around $17,700, while the production version will come at an even lower price.

LiveWire based the S2 Del Mar on its ARROW modular, patented platform in which the battery becomes the frame of the motorcycle. The production version of the Del Mar will weigh less than 440 lb (199.5 kg).

The motorcycle will pack a 59.6 kW (80 hp) motor, which means it will be less powerful than the motor in the LiveWire One (which was rated for 75 kW/100 hp). But the Del Mar will still be able to go from 0 to 60 mph (100 kph) in 3.5 seconds.

As for the battery that’s going to power the motorcycle, we are still waiting for details on it, but LiveWire says the bike will offer a range of approximately 100 miles (62 km) on a charge for city riding.

The motorcycle will feature a slim seat and a tracker-style handlebar with a thin flyscreen in front. It will be equipped with 19” front and rear wheels wrapped in custom-developed LiveWire Dunlop DT1 tires that can handle both paved and dirt surfaces.

All Del Mar bikes will be assembled at the Harley-Davidson Vehicle Operations facility in York, Pennsylvania. LiveWire plans to start the deliveries of the S2 Del Mar (the production version) next spring. The motorcycle will have a price of approximately $15,000.
