DAINESE D-STORE Orlando GRAND OPEning

The Grand Opening of Dainese's new flagship store, located on the grounds of Ace Cafe Orlando was a huge a success! Last Thursday night local Ace Cafe patrons and hundreds of Dainese fans joined together for a great afternoon and evening of speed themed motorcycle fun!

Highlights from the event were a massive showing of local Flat track race bikes from members of the Southern Dirt Track Association. Bikes ranging from DTX style dirt racers to vintage framers to full on custom racers we're out front and center boasting their ability to turn left, fast!

Indian Motorcycle's American Flat Track number one plate holder Jared Mees will be onsite signing autographs, there's going to be a Flat Track bike show, tons of giveaways (I'm talking nice stuff, helmets, jackets, memberships to Standard Motorcycle Co.) even Johnny Lewis from 10 Training is going to be onsite talking to folks about the ropes of flat track.

Mark your calendars and share this one, it's gonna be a good time!

HARLEY XG750 SUPER HOOLIGAN BUILD

It's no secret that Flat track racing is making a huge comeback. With the Roland Sands Design Super Hooligan Series combined with momentum from Indian Motorcycles and their "Wrecking Crew" led by Jared Mees, dominating the American Flat Track Series, we're seeing an increase in both attendance and viewership at the dirt track.

Roland Sands caught up with Jason and did a little interview. It get's kinda weird, but weird is good, right?

MOTUL OIL PARTNERSHIP

"I'm beyond excited to have the opportunity to work with a brand as rich in history and motorsports lineage as Motul. Their interest in supporting the growing grassroots motorcycle movement and DIY community is one the main reasons I chose to enter into a partnership with them. Their support for community garages and other incubators in our industry are critical to the continue success and growth of the next 75 years of motorcycling." - Jason Paul Michaels

"So that's it, that's your advice?"

"Yeah breh, go fast turn left and count to three. If you still see the wall, get ready, cause your gonna hit it."

That was Jason's introduction to Flat track racing care of Rolando Sands on the way to Perris, with a Sprinter filled with Indian x RSD Super Hooligan scout racers. He and Leticia were headed out with Roland to meet up with the Suicide Machine Co. and some of the other local Hooligans from the SoCal Area to get their first crack at Flat track racing.

HOOLIGAN MOTO STAMPEDE AT STURGIS

I took my first spin around the flat-track last week in SoCal with the RSD Super Hooligan crew and I'm hooked! I'm headed out ot Sturgis to run the RSD Hinkley Scramble-Tracker again in the Run What Ya Brung Class.

Hope to see some of you out there and for those who'r local to Orlando, if you want to build a flat-track bike come by Standard Motorcycle Co and see us. There's five different Hooligan builds going on right now at our shop. The more the merrier!

Triumph Street Twin Scrambler

Jason just wrapped up his most recent project, a Triumph Street Twin Scrambler. Because the emphasis of this new build would be put on the Scrambler genre and realizing the likely-hood of someone taking a brand new motorcycle into the woods (not him of course!) would be slim, he wanted to build a highly capable “Street Scrambler”.

Read about the full build here.

The Ride for Kids x Cycle World cb1100 project bike

Did you know that brain cancer kills more children than any other disease? Or that children’s brain cancer research is the least funded of all types? Or that the average age of death for a child with cancer is 8? Neither was I.

Now you’re probably wondering what the correlation is between those three statistic and a CB1100F, right?

ICON 1000 VARIANT HELMET

When it comes to bad-ass (literally, guns blazing, tires sliding) marketing, no one in the industry does it like ICON. And you got to give it to them. Sure, it’s made up, but that’s the point. It reaches beyond the doldrums of daily life and lets our minds wander somewhere else and have a shit-ton of fun, which is what motorcycling is all about, right?

What’s interesting, though, is that unlike a lot of brands in both motorcycling and other segments that try to touch on the, I’ll call it, bad-assery factor, who might do it from a visual perspective in marketing, it doesn’t translate to the final product.

UglyBROS "TON-UP" Jeans

Unlike my friend, Chris Nelson (@oilandbones), I like to wear pants. They keep your legs warm. They offer visual appeal much greater than white, hairy legs, and if produced properly from the right materials, even offer protection for when you’re riding a motorcycle. So as much as Chris would probably like this BLOG post to be about him and his adventures not wearing any pants, it’s about me and my ongoing quest to find the great jeans that can be worn both on and off a motorcycle with little compromise.

RSD "BRISTOL" JACKET

Given the fact that I spend the majority of my time ri­ding in the South, I’ve been relentlessly on the hunt for a leather jacket that offered a trifecta of style, safety, and comfort. I have some awesome leather jackets, some of which are even touted as “lightweight” or “summer”, but the reality is that I haven’t been able to find anything that didn’t leave me sweating bullets at every stop light I hit. It also started to make things difficult with Leticia, because whenever I took a ride, I was sweating profusely, looking like I’d done something wrong. “I swear! I was just out for a ride. Nothing happened!”
