Ride with more comfort and stability with Memphis Fats Side Wings. The side wings expand the comfort pocket of your Memphis Fats windshield by channeling air outward while “cleaning” the flow. You’ll feel the improved stability, and the wings can be adjusted to suit each rider. Tinted with the new “Ghost” color, the wings let in an 85% visible light transmission for an excellent view.
Memphis Fats Side Wings attach with exclusive billet biplane clamps. These clamps are CNC-machined black-coated aluminum with injection-molded Santoprene pads that grip the windshield surface but leave no trace upon removal. This makes it quick and easy to install or remove the side wings whenever you want without having to remove the windshield. Memphis Fat Side Wings are designed for use on Memphis Fats windshields.

Some of the quickest and fastest drag bikes on the planet.
The WMDRA’s AMSOIL Sturgis Nationals brought some of the quickest and fastest drag bikes on the planet to a vintage 1/8 mile strip just out of Sturgis, South Dakota for the 74th Annual Sturgis Race and Rally, along with–oh–400,000 friends.
The WMDRA came to be a part of the 74th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and to bring drag racing to Sturgis Dragway. Sandra Alberti’s collaboration with Sturgis Nationals Title sponsor AMSOIL was busy even before their races began.
The latest from the House of JIMS will be the Power House behind the 5-Ball Belly Tank. By Bandit, Paul Plattes, with photos from the JIMS crew and a George Fleming illo.
Editor’s Note: We’ve worked with JIMS staff for maybe 30 years, maybe longer. Jim Thiessen has one of the most solid companies in the industry. When the custom world is on fire JIMS keeps rolling along. So, when we decided to create something completely nuts for Bonneville in a Belly Tank configuration I discussed it with Jim and he immediately wanted to be involved. JIMS is our first, and so far our largest 5-Ball Racing sponsor behind this endeavor. Second to JIMS is Kent Weeks of Lucky Devil Metal Works, then Paughco.
When I discussed this endeavor with Jim he had just announced his new 135-inch twin cam, a similar engine to the JIMS engine used by Hiro on the salt this year for more records.
Start of the 3,938 mile ride to Tacoma, WA.
By Rogue – Esteemed Bikernet Photographer.
The 2014 Cannonball Run is an endurance test of motorcycles built prior to 1937 that started at the Daytona Beach Resort in Daytona Beach Florida on September 5th. The riders started to assemble on the beach at 8:30 AM for a group photo. They started the 3,938 mile ride to Tacoma Washington at 10:00AM and are scheduled to arrive there on September 21st.
Danny Eslick (Ruthless Racing/Trev Deeley Motorcycles) won his second AMA Pro Racing Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson series championship Sunday at New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville, New Jersey, while Kyle Wyman (KWR/Millennium Technologies) grabbed the victory in the final race of the 2014 season.
Eslick, who earned his first Harley-Davidson series championship in the class’s 2010 debut season, entered the final round with a 16-point lead over Benny Carlson (Suburban Motors H-D/Suburban Speed), the only other competitor with a mathematical chance to take the title. But a shoulder injury sustained during Sunday morning qualifying put Eslick’s championship hopes in doubt. Still nursing the injury during the race’s opening ceremonies, Eslick chose to forego the sighting lap, but when Carlson was hit with a 10-second jump start penalty, the final championship outcome became all but a formality, allowing him to ride a conservative race to a sixth place finish.
“I ran off the track and wadded it up in the wet grass this morning and pretty much destroyed that motorcycle,” Eslick said. “The Trev Deeley/Ruthless Racing team busted their butts from the time I crashed the motorcycle until the moments before the race. We were pretty close to not making it. Hats off to everybody out there.”
Meanwhile, Wyman battled at the front amidst a five-rider pack that included Carlson, Steve Rapp (Suburban Motors H-D/Aerostar Global), Tyler O’Hara (Josh Chisum Racing/Bartels’ H-D), and polesitter Shane Narbonne (Six-Four Motorsports). On the last of the race’s twelve laps, Wyman was able to use lapped traffic to create the small gap he needed to break free from Rapp for the victory and take his second win of the season.
“I tried to put my head down from the beginning,” Wyman said. “I got the holeshot from the second row and did my best to push as hard as I could for a whole lap. But [Rapp] came flying by on the front straightaway, and from that point I knew the race was going to be a little different than I wanted it to be. It turned into a pack and I sat there through the middle part of the race. It was getting crazy up front and I just wanted to make sure I didn’t get caught up in any of that.”
