Harley-Davidson Black Ice Finish for Nine-Spoke WheelsThe new Nine-Spoke Cast Wheel in Black Ice (P/N 43300114 17-inch front, P/N 40900111 16-inch rear; $549.95 each) is the latest custom wheel set from Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories.
Black Ice is a proprietary treatment that combines incredible depth with a highly reflective surface. While Black Ice may look like it is black chrome, it is not a chrome process.Styled to match the popular Nine-spoke design featured on traditional Touring models, these wheels are manufactured with special tooling developed specifically to give a near-perfect finish without the waves created when polishing the Original Equipment cast wheel.The rib on the Original Equipment wheel spoke has been removed to provide a smooth uninterrupted look and countless hours of polishing result in a superior finish. Fits 2009-later Touring models (except Trike). It also fits 2009-2011 Sidecars.The Black Ice finish is also now offered on the Reaper custom wheel for many Harley-Davidson Dyna models.All Genuine Motor Accessory wheels have been certified by Harley-Davidson to perform to tough vehicle standards for quality and durability. Wheels require separate purchase of a model-specific Wheel Installation Kit, Sprocket Hardware and Brake Rotor-specific Hardware. Installation may also require separate purchase of a model-specific tire. See an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer for fitment details.For additional information, visit harley-davidson.com.
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends, the weekly podcast brought to you by Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Motos and Friends is brought to you by Yamaha. You can check out the amazing YZF-R7 at your local Yamaha dealer, or of course at YamahaMotorsports.com. The YZF-R7 is an amazing supersport machine that is comfortable too!
In this week’s first segment, Editor Don Williams takes the smallest BMW ADV bike on an urban adventure in Los Angeles. The BMW G 310 GS is a full size motorcycle with a modest engine, so of course we wonder if it is a little too underpowered and might struggle. Don put it through its paces and gives us his take.
In the second segment, Neale Bayly and Kiran Ridley have returned from the Ukraine to Paris where Kiran is based.
Kiran is an award winning photojournalist, and as an accomplished documentarian, he has covered stories as diverse as drug smuggling around the Mexican border, to the devastation of the Australian Bush Fires, to the tragedy of the Mediterranean migration crisis. Neale and Kiran reminisce about their motorcycle adventure in the Ukraine, and their observations and experiences with the incredibly resilient people of Ukraine, who have been put through such brutal hardship.
