June 10, 2008 by · Comments Off on As gas prices soar, so do scooter sales 

In his 17 years as a salesman at Sunrise Cycle & Watercraft, Roy Ford has never seen an item sell so fast.

Motorized scooters are flying off the lot. He even bought one himself recently.

The dealership on East Little Creek Road in Norfolk sold 23 scooters in May, compared with the one or two sold the same month last year. Record-high gas prices, Ford said, are driving people to consider two-wheelers as a cheaper alternative to cars.

Robbie Knievel FORT WORTH – Daredevil Robbie Knievel, son of the late Evel Knievel, got the crowd going before the race, by clearing 21 Hummers on a motorcycle against a stiff wind that stood the track’s flags straight out.

Knievel gripped the throttle and pointed his speeding bike toward the ramp on the track’s frontstretch. It launched him high above the SUVs, and he hung there a moment – buffeted by gusts as fireworks and flames shot up around him – before landing with a little bounce and plenty of room to spare.

Patriot Chopper ARLINGTON, Va. – Although “Rolling Thunder” may be the name of a stirring circus march, for many those two words bring to mind the revving of a half-million motorcycle engines.

Every Memorial Day for the past 21 years, bikers from all over the country have traveled to the nation’s capital for a one-mile trip from the Pentagon to the National Mall. Event organizers call it Rolling Thunder because of the sound made by thousands of motorcycles crossing Memorial Bridge into the District of Columbia. The event’s main focus is to publicize American servicemembers who are prisoners of war and those who are still listed as missing in action.

New Sport Bike Training Unveiled

June 5, 2008 by · Comments Off on New Sport Bike Training Unveiled 

NORFOLK – A new course designed for sport bike motorcycle riders in the Navy and Marine Corps kicked off at Naval Station Norfolk June 4 and at other fleet concentration areas. Every sport bike rider in the Navy and Marine Corps will be required to take the course.

There has been a rise in the number of sport bike riders in the fleet, and the reason seems simple. They are sleek and colorful and built for speed. For Sailors and Marines, many of whom are naturally attracted to an adrenaline rush, this is a huge selling point. However, these same features make riding sport bikes much different than handling cruisers or touring bikes. Mishap statistics show it’s important to take these differences into account.

The Naval Safety Center (NSC) partnered with the Motorcycle Safety Foundation to create the Military Sport Bike Rider Course (MSRC) specifically for sport bike riders.
