Roland Sands and Indian Hooligan Bike Take A Tumble
Just as the announcer told the Buffalo Chip crowd that “This bike has no front brake,” Roland Sands was reminded of the feature missing from his custom Roland Sands Design Indian hooligan dirt track racer. Sands and the bike rode straight off the damp Buffalo Chip stage at Sturgis, and into the crowd.
According to the Rapid City Journal, four people were injured and treated at the scene, and were thought to be taken to the hospital. There are no reports on who was injured or how serious the injuries were, at this time. Amateur video captured the Roland Sands accident on the Indian hooligan dirt tracker.
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.
