2014 AMA Supercross NewsTwo-time AMA Supercross Champion James Stewart will be competing with new boots in 2014 AMA Supercross.
The Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z 450 pilot, who was affiliated with Nike for many years, has signed a multi-year agreement with Gaerne, and will use the company’s SG-12 mx-racing boot.As the relationship grows, the Floridian will utilize his line of apparel SEVEN to design and offer special releases with Gaerne.James Stewart (Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z 450 Supercross) says: “I’m really excited to be doing something new here. Gaerne was genuine with their interest as soon as they heard I was free and that meant a lot to me.“But outside of that, riding in the SG-12 was the icing on the cake. I tested every boot out there and I honestly liked the SG-12 the best. I’m really excited that we have a relationship to build on going into the future.”Bob Rathcamp (Gaerne) says: “Having an athlete like James on the starting line at A-1 wearing Gaerne boots is really exciting for our brand World-Wide. When we heard that Nike was terminating their Motocross Boot effort we jumped on the phone right away! James has been super cool and we look forward to working with him for years to come!”
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Ultimate Motorcycling’s weekly Podcast—Motos and Friends.
My name is Arthur Coldwells.
This week’s Podcast is brought to you by Yamaha motorcycles. Discover how the YZF-R7 provides the perfect balance of rider comfort and true supersport performance by checking it out at YamahaMotorsports.com, or see it for yourself at your local dealer.
This week’s episode features Senior Editor Nic de Sena’s impressions of the beautiful new Harley-Davidson Low Rider ST that is loosely based around the original FXRT Sport Glide from the 1980s. Hailing from The Golden State, these cult-status performance machines became known as West Coast style, with sportier suspension, increased horsepower, and niceties including creature comforts such as a tidy fairing and sporty luggage.
In past episodes you might have heard us mention my best friend, Daniel Schoenewald, and in the second segment I chat with him about some of the really special machines in his 170 or so—and growing—motorcycle collection. He’s always said to me that he doesn’t consider himself the owner, merely the curator of the motorcycles for the next generation.
Yet Daniel is not just a collector, but I can attest a really skilled rider. His bikes are not trailer queens, they’re ridden, and they’re ridden pretty hard. Actually, we have had many, many memorable rides on pretty much all of the machines in the collection at one time or another.
From all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
