Free Dunlop Download Digital MagazineDunlop has released its latest free digital magazine, Dunlop Download. The magazine is loaded with features that cover every type of racing, from WORCS and GNCC to Supercross and the KTM Jr. Supercross championships, with emphasis on the races at Daytona.
Speaking of the April issue, Dunlop says: “We’ve also got a killer photo essay of the bikes of Supercross. Dunlop’s own Broc Glover went dirt riding with country singer Lyle Lovett and found out he is just a motorcycle guy like the rest of us.“We’re also introducing the 2013 Team Dunlop riders in this issue, as well as covering the new second-generation American Elite tire for Harley riders, and the new Elite 3 for Gold Wing riders-both featuring Dunlop’s amazing MT Multi-Tread technology for increased grip and mileage. Finally, there’s an in-depth interview with long-time Dunlop racer Kevin Windham on his plans after retirement.”To download the magazine free of charge, click here.
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends—the weekly Podcast brought to you by the editorial team at Ultimate Motorcycling.
My name is Arthur Coldwells.
In this week’s first segment, Senior Editor Nic de Sena rides the much anticipated Yamaha MT-10 SP. That’s the model with the Ohlins semi-active suspension. It’s only been available in Europe for the last couple of years, but finally the good news is, that it’s coming to America. The big question is, whether the extra 3k you’re going to have to pony up for the Ohlins is actually worth it, or perhaps there’s just not that much improvement over the stock KYB suspension that has suited the Yamaha MT-10 so well until now?
In the second segment, Associate Editor Teejay Adams chats with Val Collins. Val grew up on motorcycles and learned to love speed, however her real love is Formula 1 tunnel-boat racing. These are the guys and gals that are strapped into a tiny cockpit and then hurtle down the straights at 120 mile per hour and pull 5G in the corners. We attended the recent season finale in Lake Havasu and watched our friend Mike Quindazzi try to take the win. Val chats with Teejay about her love for two-wheels and tunnel-boats. Yeah, it’s crazy stuff.
From all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode and have a great Thanksgiving Holiday!
