Written by

G.L.O.W. has done it again! They held their annual field meet in Rosharon and it was well worth the wait. You can’t predict their next move! These ladies are well organized from their coordinated outfits to their standing positions in group photos. Supporters traveled from all parts of Louisiana such as the clubs Fire & Ice as well as No Limit Posse. There was a moment of silence dedicated to the fallen riders which ended in the release of hundreds of white balloons. Competitions were held and trophies were earned but G.L.O.W. couldn’t let the day end without entertaining the crowd with their “G.L.O.W. dance.” Way to go Ladies! Go to the Foto Gallery and take a look at who came out to support G.L.O.W. at their annual field meet.

2009 Yamaha R1 Review

Written by
 

In the supersport liter class, there’s always lots of talk about power. You expect that. What you wouldn’t have expected – until now – is a radically superior way to deliver that power. Introducing the 2009 YZF-R1, the first ever production motorcycle with a crossplane crankshaft. Crossplane technology, first pioneered in MotoGP racing with the M1, puts each connecting rod 90° from the next, with an uneven firing interval of 270°- 180°- 90°- 180°. This all but eliminates undesirable inertial crankshaft torque, which allows the engine’s compression torque to build smoothly and provide a very linear power delivery out of the corners. It’s a feeling that’s simply unmatched, like having two engines in one: the low-rpm torquey feel of a twin with the raw, high-rpm power of an inline 4. In fact, the new YZF-R1 is not a continuation of existing supersport development; it is breakthrough technology that represents a paradigm shift in both
 technology and performance.

   The 979 Ridaz teamed up with FedEx to put on a special bike and car wash benefit at McLean Park in Lake Jackson, TX.  Over a hundred bikes and cars were washed by the motorcycle club in support of The March of Dimes.  Check out the pix in our foto gallery.
