few races this year.
It seems like it always rains at least one day of bike week every year.   The forecast now is very depressing.  We know they will not cancel or delay the races because of a little (or a lot) of rain, but rain and photography are not something I like.

It's a long drive and an expensive place to stay.

This year there just is not very much racing going on.

Wondering if it is worth it.

WHen a new member registers, the forum is supposed to show an image and the human answers two questions about the image. 

This function is not working right now due to the major software upgrade.

I am not a programmer, so it might take a few days  :banghead:

Shooting the bull / Lightning Motorcycles bet on n...

SÃO PAULO, Feb. 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Boost performance and speed. This is the goal that led Lightning Motorcycles, known for being pioneers in the e-mobility industry and electric motorcycles innovators, to team up with the Brazilian company CBMM, world's leading supplier of niobium products and technology.

Signed in January, the partnership with the Silicon Valley-based company aims to leverage the applications of niobium in the mobility sector and to create an electric two-wheeler to break the current commercial motorcycle Land Speed Record (LSR). The initiative intends to innovate and test the metal in various components of the vehicle, in order to improve its performance and, eventually, exceed the 250 mph (around 403 km/h) mark.

According to CBMM's Market Development Manager, Mariana Perez de Oliveira, the partnership with Lightning Motorcycles is especially strategic, as it will serve as a platform for experimenting and testing niobium technologies in high-performance vehicles. "The idea is to demonstrate, in practice, the advantages of niobium applications, since the addition of the metal can bring numerous benefits to the project, aiming at weight reduction and greater energy efficiency, as well as contributing directly to safety." Mariana adds that the agreement is long-term, since the prototype will also serve as a concept for future projects.

"Light weight and high efficiency are essential for high-performance motorcycles, we have used some applications of niobium to achieve these goals," says Lightning Motorcycles CEO and Founder Richard Hatfield. Confident in the partnership, he states. "We are excited to work with CBMM to further innovate niobium technologies that can be translated into meaningful benefits to not just high performance electric motorcycles but to all types of vehicles".

ELECTROMOBILITY

Niobium allow a true revolution in mobility. In the steel industry, for example, the application is already a reality in the manufacture of high-strength steel. It allows the development of more resistant components, playing a crucial role in increasing vehicle safety.

In addition, the metal can enable improvements in the braking system such as reduced wear, greater durability, and better efficiency; to its use in the cathodes and anodes of vehicle batteries in order to obtain unique characteristics, such as ultra-fast charging and greater energy density, compared to technologies used in traditional lithium-ion batteries.

Shooting the bull / Oceano Dunes State Vehicular R...
Last post by Biketographer - January 06, 2022, 06:50:29 AM
Any California people here ?   A "vehicular recreation area" that does not allow vehicles ?


QuoteMore than 100 Oceano Dunes Acres Now Closed to OHVs

The California Coastal Commission, without deliberation, unanimously voted in late December to further restrict OHV use at the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area, immediately shutting down 108 acres of riding and driving area. Commission staff cited dust control and dune restoration as reasons to propose the shutdown, despite evidence that dust in the area is primarily caused by the wind and dunes themselves, not any human activities.

"The Coastal Commission rammed the closure through during the holidays with minimal public notice," said Scott Schloegel, MIC senior vice president of government relations. "This will further diminish the recreational experience and access for the millions of visitors to Oceano Dunes each year."

The MIC sent a letter to the CCC in December noting that claims about dust from OHVs have been debunked in two separate reports authored by Dr. Lynn Russell of the University of California, San Diego, Scripps Institution of Oceanography. And the MIC's Mario Mairena, senior manager, federal affairs, spoke at the commission meeting opposing closure during the public comment period.

"Throughout the public works plan process, we submitted comments and testified at public hearings suggesting ways to responsibly and safely preserve OHV access and resources at ODSVRA," stated the letter, signed by Erik Pritchard, president and CEO of the MIC, the Specialty Vehicle Institute of America, and the Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle Association. "We repeatedly offered to partner with State Parks to enhance safety, training, and awareness of sensitive areas at ODSVRA."
