The Start Of A New Riding Season

Posted on April 14th, 2010 by Biker Bill under Iron Biker News.

Well I don’t know about you guys, but I’m ready for spring.This is probably the best time of the year for riding.The weather is great just cold enough to wear the leathers and not have tears freeze on your face. I think with the gas prices on the constant rise we’re gonna see record numbers of people converting to motorcycles. I personally think it’s a good thing,figure the more motorcycles the less a chance of the old excuse(I Didn’t see you!) for the cagers. The only downside I see to this is the people young & old who take motorcycling to lightly. You guys know who they are their the ones wearing flip-flops while riding a motorcycle or shorts and no shirt.That’s just for the ones that proclaim that they know how to ride. Then you have the other ones that rode a bike once or twice in their lives,(some have never been on a motorcycle at all) jump on the motorcycle and try to drive away. I’ve been around motorcycles my whole life and have seen people go down in various ways.(Even experienced riders) I guess what I’m trying to get at is be careful.Just because you’ve been riding for years don’t let your guard down.By this I mean don’t take motorcycles for granted. A Roadking, a Goldwing, a sportster, even a little 250cc Rebel, are all a whole lot different then that “mini bike” or “dirt bike” that you had. Or even better your friend had it and you rode it all the time when you were younger. Sorry but being in motorcycle sales for the last 20 years you would be surprised at some of the answers I get when I ask If they have ever ridden before. Motorcycles aren’t dangerous, but motorcycling sure is. Even if you’ve been riding for years a little refresher course couldn’t hurt. No matter where you are I’m sure your local dealer will know where classes are being held. And don’t be afraid to tell someone if you think they need some training or practice.The worst thing you can do is let someone ride a motorcycle, that is not used to,or prepared to ride a motorcycle. Before you jump on that motorcycle this year be prepared. Check in with Art from time to time and see if some of his tech tips are helpful,also if there is any doubt whatsoever with your ability to operate the motorcycle, get proper training. Be safe.Be smart!! See Ya on the Highway, Mr. Magoo

How Can You Remove A Dent From A Motorcycle Tank ?

Posted on January 14th, 2010 by Biker under Harley Davidson, How To, Iron Biker News.

You may be wondering, “How can you remove a dent from a motorcycle tank?” It’s a good question, and one that has puzzled many people over the years. Specialists in this area of dent removal have got it down to a fine art these days. Their dent removal techniques are just like magic.

How can you remove a dent from a motorcycle tank? By going inside to push out, or by going outside to pull out, either way the dent gets removed.

Motorcycle gas tanks have their caps on the top, usually at the highest point. That way they can be filled to the maximum. Unfortunately, the gas caps on motorcycle tanks are not large openings.

Some motorcycle gas tanks are double skinned. It’s a bit like having a tank inside a tank. This kind of gas tank makes it difficult to remove the dent from the inside as you will be applying pressure to the inside metal skin, and not the outside metal skin where the dent actually is.

However, if the tank has a single wall, or metal skin, then the job becomes very easy. Well, easy in the hands of an expert at least. The first thing done is to attach an object a bit like a flag onto the tank. This has a flexible mounting that can be adjusted to any angle, and at the end is a rectangular flag-like card with parallel black lines running the length of it on a white background.

This is a very clever idea. The “flag” is reflected in the shiny paintwork of the motorcycle gas tank. If the tank is in perfect factory condition, then the reflected black lines will all be smooth. If on the other hand the tank is dented, then the reflected lines will converge, balloon and be distorted where the reflected dent is. This is important!

As the dent is massaged and caressed from the inside, using a special tool designed for removing dents in motorcycle gas tanks, the reflected black lines in the region of the dent will become less and less ballooned and distorted. By the time the technician has completely removed the entire dent, the reflection will be smooth and perfect.

Of course, the actual surface of the motorcycle tank is constantly checked as well for smoothness. But the reflections of the black lines is arguably the best visual and actual guide as to the presence or otherwise of the dent. Properly performed, the dent will vanish completely and the repair will be wholly invisible. That’s the mark of a good motorcycle dent removal - nothing left to see.

The days of answering the question of, “How can you remove a dent from a motorcycle tank?” by removing the tank, rubbing it down, or removing the paint with stripper completely, then applying filler, rubbing that down before re-spraying the entire thing has all but gone.

Today’s expert technicians use paintless dent removal techniques. They attempt to leave the original factory paint exactly as it is. They also attempt to remove the dent with leaving a mark, and more often than not they succeed.


DENT MASTERWALES LTD, believes that mobile dent repair services will take away your stress when you dent your car or Motor Bike Fuel Tank. Our services will help save you time and money, and at the same time provide complete satisfaction through an effective dent removal process.

Triumph’s Triumph

Posted on January 12th, 2010 by Biker under Biker Friendly, Iron Biker News, Triumph.

ATLANTA (January 12, 2010) – Triumph Motorcycles has declared the company’s continued gains in market share and year-end increase in sales were a successful conclusion to a very challenging 2009, which also marked the 15th anniversary that Triumph returned to North America.

Triumph has consistently gained market share in the United States every year for the past five years according to the Motorcycle Industry Council (MIC). The sustained growth makes Triumph one of the fastest growing motorcycle manufacturers in country and one of only two marques that never lost market share in that time period.

Sales of Triumph motorcycles in the United States increased 5.49 percent in December 2009 over the same period the prior year, which is significant as most manufacturers reported double digit decreases.

“The Triumph team and our network of dealers did a fantastic job of keeping a positive attitude in 2009, and their efforts have paid off as customers continued to show strong support for Triumph,” said Mark Kennedy, CEO of Triumph Motorcycles North America. “We are really optimistic about the New Year. Our all new 2010 Triumph Thunderbird has great momentum from being named Cruiser of the Year and we’re introducing some exciting new models to Triumph’s line of Urban Sport motorcycles.”

Triumph also did extremely well in Canada by producing a year-long sales increase of more than 20 percent over the same period in 2008. The achievement makes Triumph the fastest growing motorcycle brand in Canada.

This past summer Triumph introduced the all-new 1600cc parallel twin Thunderbird, which earned a number of ‘Best Cruiser’ accolades from the motorcycle enthusiast news media. The Thunderbird complements Triumph’s existing cruiser line that includes the 865cc America and Speedmaster models and the 2300cc Rocket III line.

Triumph also manufactures a variety of standard and sport motorcycles that range from the iconic Bonneville to class-leading sport bikes such as the Daytona 675, Street Triple and Speed Triple.

While Triumph initially gained global notoriety for its motorcycles in the 1950s and 60s, the company encountered difficulties in the 1970s. In 1983, British entrepreneur John Bloor purchased the marque and immediately began working on its return to prominence. Triumph re-emerged to the world stage in 1990 with a new line of classic parallel twin and innovative three-cylinder motorcycles that have become the hallmarks of the Triumph model range.

Kennedy continued, “Triumph has a wonderful heritage. As a company, we understand the importance of perseverance and working toward the future. It’s that culture that has enabled Triumph to be such as strong and resilient company. We’re ready for 2010.”

The full range of Triumph motorcycles are available at authorized Triumph dealers throughout North America. To find your local Triumph dealer, please visit www.TriumphMotorcycles.com.
