BOISE, IDAHO – July 25, 2014 – The Western Motorcycle Drag Racing Association (WMDRA) is pleased to welcome Bikernet Performance Editor Ray C. Wheeler to Sturgis Dragway with Lyndall Brakes and the magical elixir known as Kangen water. The ionized, alkaline and acidic water will be available to drag racers, crew members and spectators alike.
“We will have the finest rotors and brake pads on the planet available at Sturgis Dragway, as well as Kangen Water and much more,” says Wheeler. “My hot rod is meeting me, too, in Sturgis via Dave and Jody Perewitz ready to lock and load, tuned by Dan Thayer, for the Bonneville Motorcycle Speed Trials right after the Rally.”
According to WMDRA President Sandra Alberti, “We can’t thank industry leaders like Lyndall and Bikernet enough for supporting the grass roots motorcycle drag racing at Sturgis. The WMDRA supports all things horsepower, so we’ve very excited to have Ray’s 5-Ball Racing Bonneville bike on display for our drag racing fans.”

Hell Raiser Comes Down to Earth
By Bandit with photos by Jack McIntyre.
I’ve been interviewing feature builders and owners for 40 years. You can imagine, I’ve conversed with every personality under the stars, including a prick or two. Sometimes we start to talk and suddenly it’s like shooting the shit with a brother of 20 years. And often this one conversation will lead to a decades-long relationship.
After speaking with Chris, I knew we would be in contact for years to come. He was like talking to an old pal in front of the local bike night, about his latest build. We discussed this bike, his shop, and economic survival, Sturgis, Bonneville, and show circuits. So, where the hell should I start?
Muskegon was loud and colorful for the 8th Bike Time Rally.
The tribe of 100,000 assembled this past weekend by the lakeshore in Muskegon, MI for the annual Muskegon Bike Time Rally. The main drag is West Western Avenue and it transforms into “Steel Horse Alley” on Thursday when the circus comes to town.
I flew into Michigan for Bike Time because Biker Pros produced the Extreme Custom Bike Show at Muskegon Bike Time for the Rally. This is the 2nd year and the show just gets stronger and stronger. The caliber of the bikes are outstanding and the builders enjoy hanging out by the bikes, talking with enthusiasts, revving their engines and playing their stereos for the crowds.

Kudos to the six great sponsors for this year’s breakfast, adds Christine. “Allstate Insurance is our gift sponsor, and our general sponsors include Black Hills Harley-Davidson, The Buffalo Chip Campground, Rushmore Region Economic Development, Bikernet and Iron Trader News.”
