2012 Lucerne Valley AMA National Hare & Hound Factory FMF/KTM rider Kurt Caselli kept his win streak alive after capturing his fourth win of the season to remain undefeated in the AMA National Hare & Hound Series.
Kurt Caselli (FMF/KTM) says: “The race was pretty challenging today. It was hot and incredibly dusty. Luckily, I got out front early and was able to get away from a lot of the dust and just focus on riding a solid pace to take the win.”Caselli earned the holeshot at the end of the bomb and never looked back. He reported that the second loop was technically demanding and made the course fun. He went on to lead the entire race and took the win over David Pearson by 4 minutes and 45 seconds.Kurt Caselli says: “My bike was running great today.”We were able to incorporate some testing for the Baja race into today’s event by trying a different set-up on my bike. I really like it and think it might be something that we can use for the upcoming SCORE/Baja 500.“The Hare & Hound Series and the SCORE Series have a lot of similarities and I am glad we are able to find ways to incorporate some of the testing sessions into these races.”Caselli now has a large lead over the rest of the field as they take a two week break before heading to the fifth round of the series in Jericho, Utah.Next Event: Round 5 – Jericho, UT – May 5, 20122012 Lucerne Valley AMA National Hare & Hound Overall Results:
Our first segment introduces you to the new Arch 1s. This latest, slightly more sporting American V-twin, adds to the original KRGT1 coming from the boutique manufacturer based in Hawthorne, Southern California. Senior Editor Nic de Sena rode through Malibu with Gard Hollinger, who co-founded Arch Motorcycle with his friend, Keanu Reeves. The 1s is a unique ride for sure, and Nic explains what makes the bike really stand out.
For the entertaining story behind Arch Motorcycle from Gard Hollinger himself, you must listen to his podcast episode on Motos & Friends HERE

In our second segment, Associate Editor Teejay Adams chats with multiple Emmy award-winning writer, Producer, Director, and actor, Thom Beers. the former Chairman & CEO of Fremantle Media North America, responsible for American Idol and America’s Got Talent.
Thom’s fertile imagination led to most of the really big reality TV shows such as ‘Deadliest Catch’ (now in its 17th season!), and many others. Of course for us in the motorcycle world, you’ll be interested to hear the genesis and story of how he started the first real fabrication reality show ‘Monster Garage’, that showcased Jesse James, and then how that led to ‘Biker Build Off’ and the ‘Zombie Choppers’ movie.
You’d imagine that most of Thom’s time is spent sitting behind a desk and on his phone. Not so. His intense stories of capturing much of the content for these shows make for some hair-raising listening.
