"Going back all the way to three weeks before Daytona, I didn’t have a ride," Eslick said. "The season has been amazing and with just the first couple of wins, we would have been happy with that. We’ve kept on going and won a couple more races, had some off weekends and made the best of what we have. My guys have worked so hard. The GEICO Powersports/Bruce Rossmeyer/RMR Buell team has just worked so hard all year long and never given up. It’s been a long, hard fight the whole way and this weekend is no different. We’ve had some tough times a month ago, but we made it through. Who would have thought I’d have any wins coming into the season, and to leave with the championship, I couldn’t ask for anything more."
This week we ride two genre-departing motorcycles from the established American manufacturers. Jess McKinley gives us his thoughts on the all new Harley-Davidson Pan America Special, and Ron Lieback gives his on Indian’s latest version of the FTR 1200 S.
