Klock Werks’ Flare Windshield features improved air flow with the triple split-stream vents found on all ’15-Up Road Glides. Klock Werks original Flare Windshield was born on the Bonneville Salt Flats and wind tunnel tested for optimum air management. It features “hips” at its sides that re-route wind, adding downforce to the front-end of the motorcycle to improve stability over the stock windshield configuration, and a flip at the top that kicks the air up and back as clean, less turbulent air to rider and passenger.
“The very first Flare Windshield was designed for a Road Glide fairing on our Discovery Channel Biker Build Off winning bagger that I raced at the Bonneville Salt Flats,” said Laura Klock, VP of Klock Werks. “The Road Glide is positioned farther away from the rider, so it’s more of a challenge to direct the air all the way around the rider the passenger. Our Pro-Touring Flares are the right choice for optimum comfort. The added downforce vs riding with a stock shield is a bonus!”
The Pro-Touring Flare is a wider, more full-coverage option for riders and passengers that prefer the greatest amount of wind deflection. It’s the perfect choice for the long haul, but still looks sporty enough that you don’t need to purchase more than one shield for around town riding. Klock Werks Pro-Touring Flare for 2015+ Road Glides is offered in 12” and 15” heights and a variety of tint options. Finding the right fit when choosing your Flare is paramount to the best ride! You shouldn’t be looking too far over your windshield, nor should you be looking through it. The air management experts at Klock Werks are available to help you make the right choice, as well as direct you to many Try It locations across the US.
Other Flare options for ’15-Up Road Glide are the Sport Flare, a streamlined design with radical curves. The Sport Flare Tall (14”), or Sport Flare Low (9”) are available in Dark Smoke, Black, and Tint. All 2015+ Flare Windshield options DO fit the new 2016 models! All are manufactured in the USA from double sided hard coated polycarbonate material, not acrylic, for lasting durability and high quality.
All Klock Werks products are available online at www.kustombaggers.com and through your local Drag Specialties Dealer.
Indian Motorcycle just announced a new program that gives forty select dealers a high-profile forum to showcase their team’s talent by building a custom Indian Scout. Entrants must start with a 2016 Indian Scout and use minimum of three genuine Indian Scout accessories from the current catalog; the rest is entirely up to them when it comes to style, theme and extent of the project. The Indian Scout custom build program was open to Indian Motorcycle dealers from around the world on a first-come, first-served basis.
From now through January 15, 2016 each participating dealer will submit monthly photos reflecting their progress toward completion. Final custom build photos will be shared on the social media channels on January 18 so Indian Motorcycle fans can vote for their favorites until February 19. The top three finalists will be announced on February 20.
The top three Project Scout finalists as voted by Indian Motorcycle fans will receive an all-expenses-paid weekend trip to the 75th annual Daytona Bike Week for themselves plus a guest. Finally, Indian Motorcycle will host a special award ceremony in Daytona Beach during which a panel of celebrity judges will select the ultimate winner of the ‘Project Scout: Build a Legend’ program, and party goers will vote to determine the winner of the Fan Favorite award.
A Sausalito man who lost a lawsuit over an erection has had his hopes for justice deflated once again.
A state appeals court in San Francisco affirmed an earlier judgment against Henry Wolf in a 2012 suit he brought against two motorcycling companies.
Wolf claimed he suffered an acute case of priapism — a painfully prolonged erection — after riding his 1993 BMW motorcycle for two hours. He claimed the vibrations in the “ridge-like” motorcycle seat caused the condition that lasted several days, so he sued BMW North America and the seat manufacturer, Corbin-Pacific Inc.
The lawsuit claimed product liability, negligence and negligent infliction of emotional distress. Wolf said hewas forced to seek treatment at Marin General Hospital and then with other specialists.
In a 14-page decision laced with medical language about Doppler ultrasounds, tumescence and aspiration of the corposa cavernosa — a three-judge 1st District Court of Appeal panel affirmed a San Francisco Superior Court decision to dismiss the case.
The judges found that Wolf’s appeal “fails to comply with the rules of appellate procedure” by failing to cite the relevant cases or statutes, and it “contains no intelligible argument.” The panel ordered Wolf to pay the defendants’ costs on appeal, a sum likely to be many tens of thousands of dollars.
“My client’s very pleased with the result,” said Christian Scheley of the Clapp Moroney firm, which represented Corbin-Pacific. “It’s been a very long journey and saga, but justice has prevailed.”
I mean it. We have a lot to be thankful for in a world filled with religious hate, bombings, and beheadings.
How can we overcome the bullshit and strife and kick back. We need to be thankful for the Sun and Moon. We need to be thankful for the oceans and the crops.
We need to be thankful for Whiskey and the shape of a woman’s breast. We need to relish in her touch and our abilities to build truly cool motorcycles. It’s amazing, it’s beautiful, it’s wonderful, and so what’s fucking it up? Religion and our blundering history.
In 2016 let’s get a grip. In the meantime be thankful! We’ve had amazing lives.

Consistent and tenacious to the end, Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle Wrecking Crew rider Jared Mees is champion of the 2015 AMA Pro Harley-Davidson GNC1 presented by Vance & Hines flat track series. Mees, the defending GNC1 champion, finished third at the AMA Pro Flat Track Season Finale at Orleans Arena to secure his third AMA Grand National title in four years.
“It’s awesome to get this championship,” said Mees, who rode a Rogers Racing Las Vegas H-D/Blue Springs H-D Harley-Davidson XR750 motorcycle in the Grand National twins events. “Last year when I won it, I said that one meant the most to me. But now here I am and it just gets sweeter and sweeter every year. Thanks to Harley-Davidson and everyone at Rogers Racing for putting me on a fast motorcycle all season.”
Mees came to the AMA Finale with a seven-point lead over Bryan Smith, with Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle Wrecking Crew rider Kenny Coolbeth Jr. just 20 points back in third place. Mees clinched the championship when Smith and Coolbeth did not qualify for the main on the Orleans Arena short track.
Mees emerged as champion through consistent performance on the track. The 29-year-old racer from Clio, Mich., had a single victory in 2015 but notched nine podiums and only twice in 13 races failed to finish out of the top 10. Mees also won the Grand National championship in 2012 and 2014. Mees began racing as an AMA Expert in 2003 and has won 16 times in Grand National competition.
“Harley-Davidson congratulates Jared Mees on becoming a deserving three-time champion,” said Kris Schoonover, Harley-Davidson Racing Manager. “And a huge thanks to all of the Harley-Davidson racers who made this one of the most thrilling Grand National seasons in memory.”
Mees wrapped up the season with 204 points. Smith was second with 181 points, followed by Briggs Auto/Harley-Davidson rider Sammy Halbert, who finished fourth in the AMA Finale and scored 172 points. Coolbeth, who raced a Zanotti Racing Harley-Davidson XR750 motorcycle, finished the season in fourth place with 169 points.
Harley-Davidson will be back as a sponsor of the AMA Pro GNC1 series in 2016, and will field Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle Factory Team rider Brad Baker in all of the twins races.
We had a party last night and the Redhead of Redheads is a little under the weather this morning. Some of the group stumbled toward Maya’s to return the catering gear and have Huevos Rancheros and loads of Java.
I listened to several reports on the show, and a complete rundown on the Marijuana industry. And Ducati Scramblers came up a few times.
Let’s hit the news. The Long Beach Show was jammed yesterday. Progressive Insurance did a helluva job promoting it.
