Brief description of what to expect from posts here.

Coming To America

There are many signs indicating the health of a national racing series, and two if which are (1) its top riders are invited to race in international series, and (2) international riders want to come race in that country’s national series. MotoAmerica has made incredible strides in both of these, with the likes of Garrett Gerloff, Cameron Beaubier, Sean Dylan Kelly, among others making the leap to the world stage in World SBK and MotoGP, and Toni Elias, Loris Baz, and now Danilo Petrucci joining the MotoAmerica paddock. American motorcycle road racing is alive and well again.

All-American Racing Team in Moto2 World Championship

There was a time when Americans dominated the grids and the podiums of world championship motorcycle racing. “King Kenny” Roberts, Eddie Lawson, Wayne Rainey, “Fast Freddie’ Spencer, Kevin Schwantz, Scott Russell, John Kocinski, Kenny Roberts Jr., “Texas Tornado” Colin Edwards, and “Kentucky Kid” Nicky Hayden among others all found glory on the international superbike stage. One wonders how Ben Spies would have fared had he stayed healthy, or what Josh Hayes could have achieved had he made the leap. After many years of drought, with few Americans finding success (the last American to win a superbike world championship was Hayden in 2006), American motorcycle road racing is making a comeback thanks to MotoAmerica and hence, more Americans are jumping to the world championships (WSBK and MotoGP) again.

Buell Fuels A Comeback

Erik Buell himself has no affiliation with the brand carrying his namesake, focusing his energies instead on an electric motorcycle and bicycle enterprise known as Fuell. Kind of strange, we agree. But, we’re glad to see the return of a legendary American sport bike company, and we wish them the very best. The Buell name has always been synonymous with innovation, cutting edge design, and of course, speed. We look forward to seeing and sampling their machines in the coming months and years.
