2005 SUZUKI RMZ450 for sale – $3000.00

My 2005 450 RMZ450 is up for sale. I have some stuff going on that I want the money for and I want an all orange house…

It had about 15 hours on it and was totally stock when I bought 1.5 years ago from my friend who babied it. I have ridden it at MIlestone 6 times and in the desert twice now. This thing has low hours and has brand new Race Tech Gold Valves suspension setup for a 180-210 pound rider.

It’s a great bike and needs nothing.
I have the paperwork for it.
$3k today and it’s your’s, or $2100 today and $1050 more paid by the end of May and it can be yours as well, but I am keeping the paperwork til then. IMG_20140403_183136_327

THE 2014 RACE SEASON BEGINS IN 3, 2, 1….

I am getting excited!!!
I haven’t twisted a throttle in anger or with real racing purposes since I wrapped up the 2013 season last November, but that is all about to change…

“There is nothing I love as much as a good fight.
~Franklin D. Roosevelt”

Next weekend I am headed to the Stateline Supermoto Challenge in Primm, NV with a bunch of other pro and amateur racers to compete in a wild kick off race weekend for the 2014 season. If you are a supermoto racer and are not already signed up, do it ! This is a one off event that is a ton of fun and there are classes for EVERYONE to compete in.
Here is a video highlighting last years event:

I encourage you to come join us as a racer or spectator for what will surely be the biggest race event in the southwest desert this season.

There is a huge list of people that have helped me get ready to be competitive this season and I want to give special attention to : David Slater at Redline Motorsports, Matt at Hazardous Racing, Nate at On Track Wellness, David Eckenrode, Brian at Socal Supermoto, Troy at Mission BayAuto, Roy at T-n-T Specialties, Jeff at Toxic Moto Racing, Rich at the Rich Oliver’s Mystery School, and my ever patient girlfriend Angela Howdyshell who truly does put up with a ton of crap from me and makes everything so much easier when she is a part of it.

See you all at the track soon, and I hope you will continue to follow the results and events of the season right here at www.weigracing.com !

GUEST INSTRUCTOR AT THE 3/16/2014 SOCAL SUPERMOTO SCHOOL

This past weekend, I was asked to be the guest instructor for SoCal Supermoto at Adam’s Motorsports Park in Riverside, California. DSC_5974DSC_5992
The class was packed full of good students with a willingness to learn. I had a great time giving lectures , answering questions, and working through on track training drills with all of the attendees. It was great to have Brian there to offer answers and other ways of explaining stuff to the students based on his years of coaching and teaching through the SoCal Supermoto program.  I am rather new to the coaching and instructing thing so I have some things to learn in that department. I kept finding myself struggling with not going into too deep/advanced of technique stuff and keeping things rather simplified in order to hit all of the varied skill levels that were in the class. I did have a ton of fun and I look forward to doing more coaching in the future.

We received fantastic reviews and feedback after the class was over with from the students and I feel really confident that these guys definitely got their money’s worth. This makes me happy because I want to give back to the sport and help develop riders.

Here is a pic of me standing in my sexy Hazardous Racing leathers  on the edge of the track coaching my friend and sponsor  Troy from Mission Bay Automotive (San Diego) in one of the more perplexing corners at Adam’s motorsports park:adams 3-16-13 297-M
I also brought in my personal mechanic Roy Stafford from TnT Specialties to give a lunch time talk about basic supermoto bike setup and answer any mechanical questions that the group had.

We wrapped the day up with some starting and stopping drills and then moved into some mini races. Everyone rode incredibly well and I was impressed with how well they were picking up on the material that I conveyed. This was a fun and unique chance for me to try and pass along some of the info that I have gained over my race career in motocross, road racing, and supermoto through racing and riding schools that I have attended.

Angela was there snapping photos as well as SoCal Supermoto owner and operator Brian Murray. If you were a part of the class and want to see the pics from the day see these two links:

BRIAN’s SOCAL SUPERMOTO PHOTOS

If you have not attended or are not familiar with the SoCal Supermoto program, you need to jump on over to www.socalsupermoto.com  right now and check out what this stuff is all about.
2 years ago I signed up and took a class with Brian and learned how to ride supermoto…. I have been absolutely hooked and loving it ever since.  DO yourself a favor and come check out his school for yourself sometime soon!

2014 preparations

With the help of Dan and the gang at Fusion Graphix, I have some new graphics going on the bikes and they look pretty sharp! Couple this with the great prep work on the bikes that Roy Stafford at TnT performance is doing for me, these bikes will be ready to fight for the win and they will look great while doing so!

I have no doubt that this season is going to be a tough battle, but I will be ready because I am still working on getting in as good of shape as I can with the help of On Track Wellness and eating a cleaner and cleaner diet each month.

bring on the 2014 AMA supermoto race series!

AMA Supermoto National Championship Series kicks off March 7 in Las Vegas, Nev.

PICKERINGTON, Ohio — The American Motorcyclist Association and USA Supermoto are pleased to announce the AMA Supermoto National Championship Series. The six-round series will kick off at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nev., on March 7.

“Supermoto is an amazing sport to watch and an even more amazing sport to compete in,” said AMA Vice President of Operations Jeff Massey. “Since the beginning, supermoto has needed a true grass-roots network U.S. to help sustain the top level of competition. This series will help accomplish that goal by giving today’s amateur and sportsman-level competitors a place to race, feeding the sport with expert-level talent going forward, and providing a showcase for sponsors and teams active in the discipline.”

The AMA Supermoto National Championship Series will include novice, youth, intermediate, age- and displacement-based classes as well as classes that will feature some of the best supermoto talent in the country. Online registration will be available soon at www.amanationalsupermoto.com.

“We had a great inaugural season in 2013, and we’re excited to step up our program for the new season as an AMA National Championship Series,” said Matt Stewart, president of USA Supermoto, the AMA’s promoting partner for the series. “We have been working with the AMA for some time to strengthen supermoto racing in the United States, and everything has been positive. We’re looking forward to watching our racers compete for AMA national No. 1 plates in 2014.”

Supermoto combines exciting elements of motocross, dirt track and road racing into one dynamic discipline. It features jumps, high-speed straights and both dirt and asphalt surfaces. Track variations and venues can vary considerably. Supermoto events have taken place at purpose-built facilities, in sports stadiums, on casino properties and on closed-course cityscape street layouts.

The discipline originated in the United States in the late 1970s and was initially popularized by the “Superbikers” show that featured the best dirt trackers, motocrossers and road racers of the time.

REDLINE MOTORSPORTS JOINS WEIG RACING AS TITLE SPONSOR FOR 2014 SEASON

redlinelogo

I am really excited to announce that on January 30th Redline Motorsports signed up and offered its support as a title sponsor for the 2014 supermoto race season. Redline Motorsports is the # 1 volume dealer in the state of Washington where they offer a huge selection of pre-owned motorcycles, parts, as well as fantastic service. Redline has been making deals and helping people from all over the world get on two wheels through their website for many years. Another well known fact in the Pacific Northwest is that Redline Motorsports is a regular hangout and workplace for the greatest dyno tuner in the northwest, Nels Byersdorf. If you are a racer and haven’t had your bike on Nel’s Dyno , you are truly missing out.

Please visit www.BUYREDLINE.com to check out the latest sales inventory and rock bottom pricing.

I am certainly going to have to work hard to do well this season because the USA Pro Supermoto race grids are stacked with talent, but with this added support from Redline Motorsports I have no doubt that 2014 is going to be the most successful race season I have had yet. I have been busting my butt in the gym and on the bike this winter in order to make sure that I am physically prepared for a great race season and I hope that many of you will be there to take part in the action as a fellow racer or a fan in the stands cheering for us. My complete race schedule can be found on this page: http://weigracing.com/scheduler/

Once again, I would like to thank David Slater and the entire staff at Redline Motorsports for their support this season. I highly encourage all of you to check out www.BUYREDLINE.com the next time you are looking for a motorcycle to purchase, parts to buy, or to get service work performed. It pays to support those shops that are involved in and supporting our sport.
