2012 AMA Supercross WallpaperThe 2012 AMA Supercross Championship marks the second year that Chad Reed is competing with his self-owned team, Two-Two Motorsports Honda.
For a self-funded effort, the Australian did extremely well in 2011 SX, taking second overall behind champion Ryan Villopoto (Monster Energy Kawasaki). For 2012, Reed has full backing from American Honda, something that should dull the financial strain.And during the opening round of 2012 Supercross at Anaheim Saturday, Reed’s CR-F 450 performed well. Although many challenges were present from Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey, the No. 22 rider finished the season-opener in second place behind winner Villopoto.Chad Reed (Two-Two Motorsports Honda CR-F 450) says: “Villopoto made us look silly out here tonight. I am just happy to get second place tonight in this field of riders.”Reed and the grid will return for Round 2 of 17 at Chase Field in Phoenix Saturday.Attached above is wallpaper of Reed at Anaheim I.Click motorcycle thumbnail to expand.

Zero Electric ADV Bike + Al and Bridget from Throw Your Leg Over
byMotos and Friends by Ultimate Motorcycle
Hello everyone and welcome to Motos and Friends, a weekly Podcast brought to you by the editorial team at Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Electric mobility is everywhere nowadays. Whether it’s a car, a truck, an assisted bicycle, a scooter, or any number of new innovations, the electric revolution is certainly here. In this week’s first segment, Nic de Sena took a ride on Zero’s recently announced new Adventure bike—the Zero DSR-X. There’s been a lot of hype about this new arrival on the ADV scene, and of course the questions are many. Nic talks to me about whether Zero actually have a credible, alternative energy ADV bike—or if the machine is just simply an empty promise.
In our second segment, I chat with Al and Bridget from ‘Throw Your Leg Over’. They took time out to record this episode from somewhere in the middle of Romania, of all places.
These interesting Aussies have traveled—and painstakingly documented—the thousands of miles they’ve covered riding the best roads and sights through Australia, Tasmania, Europe, eastern Europe, and Scandinavia, among other places.
