Moto Training?

Watch in full screen for the true effect!

Stuntman Fabio Wibmer has taken rail-riding to new heights (pun intended) in a new video featuring the rider pedaling across a rail atop a dam 200 meters in the air. He completed the stunt in Austria's Koelnbreinsperre on one of the highest dams in Europe.

Wibmer said that it took him a few attempts because of the crosswinds, making the stunt even more terrifying. The wind (and his heavy breathing during particularly tense bits) is audible in the video. He pops up and onto the railing, and navigates around tight corners while maintaining his precarious position on the icy rail—and we get the view from his helmet cam, including every single wobble and full-body tilt to maintain balance.

Spy Photos Of KTM’s Fuel Injection Two Strokes

Following yesterday’s news that KTM were testing their fuel injected two strokes at the Roof of Africa, lots of “spy photos” have surfaced.

Naturally information is limited with those in the know remaining tighter lipped than a camel’s arse in a sand storm, but the system does look good.

The design is very neat, tidy and very refined and is far from a crude mock-up meaning we could see EFI two strokes on our local dealer's showroom floor as early as July.

Very, very interesting stuff indeed…

Watch Colton Haaker win the 2016 AMA EnduroCross Championship

Husqvarna Motorcycles are pleased to present ‘Colton Haaker | 2016 AMA EnduroCross Champion’ - a web video that pays tribute to Haaker’s championship winning success capturing the action and events from the final round of the 2016 EnduroCross Championship in Ontario, California. 

For Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Colton Haaker, 2016 has been the most successful year of his racing career so far. 

Crowned FIM SuperEnduro World Champion back in March, he returned to the US and started working hard ahead of the eight-round-long AMA EnduroCross series that kicked off in August. 

Getting his 2016 AMA EnduroCross campaign off to the best possible start with a win at the opening round in Atlanta, the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing star went on to wrap up a highly successful season with five victories and three second places. 

His runner-up result at the eighth and final round of the series in Ontario was more than enough for Colton to clinch the 2016 AMA EnduroCross title.

MXA TWO-STROKE SPOTLIGHT: BIG-BORE YAMAHA YZ295

TWO-STROKE SPOTLIGHT: BIG-BORE YAMAHA YZ295

From MXA website - www.motocrossactionmag.com

Art McDade and Buck Gerolamy teamed up to make a customized 2009 Yamaha YZ295. It seems that going big on the YZ250 is a popular choice. If you’re thinking about throwing a big-bore into your 250 two-stroke, I suggest purchasing a flywheel weight from Steahly Offroad. They have a plethora of options to help smooth the power and make the engine more tractable. Anyway, here’s Art and Buck’s science project. What’s cool is how they included website links. You, too, can build a red and white YZ295.

“Attached are pictures of a well used 2009 Yamaha YZ250 brought back to life as a YZ295.  The engine uses an Eric Gorr low to mid 295 kit ($660) and runs on pump gas. The suspension was rebuilt with SKF products. We think this is the perfect two-stroke for Vet riders. It is lightweight with lots of power and excellent handling. Listed below are all of the suppliers we used.

Dirty Devil Day 3

After traveling 13 miles up a dirt road so treacherous it was named Hell’s Backbone, we reach a bridged crossing with 1,500-foot drops on either side. The surrounding area is called Death Hollow for a reason. Welcome to the Dirty Devil motorcycle adventure ride.

Rocky Mountain ATV/MC is headquartered in Utah, so as you might imagine, we do a lot of riding in the state. We’ve had a lot of opportunities to see some of the most majestic vistas Utah has to offer. We’ve put together a ride that begins in Payson and heads on a loop through the southeast section of the state, traversing everything from mountains to slickrock. We call it the Dirty Devil, named for the Dirty Devil River that the route crosses several times.

As part of our RM Rides series, we’ve documented the ride and put it together in a video series and companion blog post, making it easy for you to plan your own Dirty Devil adventure with your friends. We’ve provided the GPS files below so you can follow our same route.
