Skully…it’s alive, alive!

Apparently, Skully, the innovative helmet product company ravaged by internal mismanagement, is back. According to the report, they’ve found investors willing to risk even more money to get their high-tech helmet into customers’ hands. Only the future will tell whether their plans come to fruition.

What’s your take? Are you going to order a Skully or has the sun set on this great product idea?

Rossi Breaks Leg…Huge Impact on Championship

Valentino Rossi, the 38-year-old Italian MotoGP racer (as if he needs any introduction), has broken his leg during motocross training. He’s had surgery and is doing well, according to reports. The larger story here is the impact on this year’s championship. Before Rossi’s potentially, season-ending injury, there was a serious four-way battle going on between Dovizioso, Marquez, Vinales, and Rossi. now, Marc Marquez is the most likely beneficiary and could be on track for another championship.

Ride a motorcycle and looking for a monumentally epic way to spend a week ripping it up in October?

Dates: leave Maine 10/12. Arrive at the cabins 10/13. Stay until 10/18. Return to Maine on 10/19.

Cost: We normally estimate around $750-1000 for the entire trip (travel, lodging, and food), depending on your personal expenses and whether you split a cabin or want it all to yourself.

Is motorcycle riding a dying pastime? Data suggests, yes.

While I’m not that concerned about Harley and its prospects (they’ve been down difficult roads in the past and survived), the overall decline in driving and motorcycling is very concerning. My two children both ride, but they seem to be the exception these days. How do we transfer previous generations’ love for the open road to our kids…and grandkids? Hopefully, this will become known as just a “blip” in the natural ebb and flow of interests between generations rather than an actual death knell for motorcycling.
