My wife Marti has been watching all the bike and sled projects being built around here for the past 25 years. She actually learned to ride on one of my old race bikes back in the 80s, in a shopping mall parking lot on a Sunday. For the past 15 yrs Marti’s been riding around on a tricked out ’99 Fatboy, last of the EVOs, that I leaned on for her.
One day this past August, Marti turned to me and said, “I want a pink sportbike, with a matching pink outfit.”

Special feature blog: Dan Kruger recounts "most unbelievable week of my career" after winning Pan-Delta final this past weekend
Last week we reported that Canadian Dan Kruger had a vicious highside during practice for the final round of the Pan Delta Championship series in Zhuhai, China that landed him in a Hong Kong hospital with severe injuries and internal bleeding. He then sent Inside Motorcycles this exclusive recap of what he called "the most unbeleivable weekend of my career."
1. Hospital in China for initial diagnosis - pain meds, catheter inserted, X-rays, etc.
2. transported to Hong Kong hospital for further tests. Internal bleeding is the problem, with a fractured pelvis and a ruptured urethra.
3. Bleeding gets worse internally so they put me into surgery right away; two and half hours later, I wake up and things are much improved. They put some plastic parts inside me to reconstruct the damage.
