Performance Times

    The 2021 American Flat Track Season has seen plenty of excitement, a few race cancellations (rain!), and a handful of spectacular get-offs (Johnny Lewis huck at the Atlanta TT comes to mind), but the last few doubles have been spectacular. We're talking about the Memphis Shades Springfield Mile...

    Although the King of the Baggers championship was only three races this year, each was action-packed, unpredictable, and absolutely record-setting. Our own Mission Foods/S&S Indian Challenger piloted by Tyler O'Hara has gone from winning to DNF (Did Not Finish). Much of the grid is fighting...

    Motorcycle racing is rumored to have been born right around the time the second motorcycle was built. We'd be hard-pressed to argue that and S&S itself can trace our lineage to two-wheeled competition (it's a good story, we'll re-tell it here soon).

    Race two of the 2021 King of the Baggers series happened to fall conveniently in our backyard. A few hours East in scenic Elkhart Lake. The Road America facility has stood as a premier motorsports facility since the mid-fifties and remains one of the best in the US. This storied racing facility...

    Storied motorcycle racers, particularly in the US, have been few and far between in recent years, but that very likely changed this past weekend as low key but high-speed Tyler O'Hara took on an insanely competitive American Flat Track TT and the MotoAmerica King of the Baggers road race IN THE...

    Can the “new normal” feel a little bit more like the old normal or are we destined for milquetoast lives of Zoom calls and sterilized virtual events?  American Flat Track seems to have pondered this very question and would like to present to you their version of the new normal, and I for one...

    Our first track day was now scheduled for early September at the Blackhawk Farms in Beloit Illinois and we had chosen Tyler O’Hara as our rider for his experience with the XR series as well as an incredibly diverse racing resume. The pieces were coming together and flew Tyler into Wisconsin for...

    Baggers at Laguna Seca? Monster touring machines lumbering through the hallowed curves of California’s most famous race track? The pundits would dub it as blasphemy and the purists took to their keyboards to express their utter dismay. If there had been an internet in the early days of NASCAR,...

         We recently embarked back to the motherland of tacos for the third annual Roland Sands Design Moto Beach Classic at Bolsa Chica State Beach, California.

    We were back again in St. Paul, Minnesota for a weekend of fun at the second annual War of the Twins indoor flattrack race as well as the thirty-second annual Dennis Kirk Donnie Smith Bike Show the following day. Here is a little recap of some of the bar banging action and custom bike goodness!

    Every year, the crew here at S&S takes the short drive across the state to Milwaukee for one of our favorite shows, the Mama Tried Motorcycle Show and Flat Out Friday. This year we had a little more weather than usual, but nothing will stop us from checking out some of the best custom...

    David works in our Race Department - getting to handle some of the biggest, fastest and best engines to come out of S&S. No, seriously - the pro stock engines we produce are 160 cubic inches!!

    Thomas of Zero Hour may not be fast but he sure is patriotic!

    The rain couldn’t stop the anticipated AFT battle in Atlanta, GA, pushing the remainder of the racing activities back a day at Dixie Speedway on Saturday, April 7th, 2018. When racing resumed on that Sunday afternoon, it was Jared Mees who came out firing for the win. 
    Mees understood the...

    AFT - Perris Finals

    by Jon Montgomery / October 11, 2017

    Indian Wrecking Crew’s, Jared Mees put on a flawless show in Perris, CA at the Perris Auto Speedway's clay Half-Mile to end his epic 2017 American Flat Track season. His resounding victory came on top of already locking down the Grand National Championship.  Mees put the No. 9 Indian Motorcycle...

    The Indian Motorcycles “Wrecking Crew” absolutely dominated the AFT Twins Main Event in Phoenix, AZ with another “All Indian” podium. Since S&S Cycle is the exhaust sponsor for the Indian Flat Track program, this means this is an “All S&S” podium as well! Bryan Smith was able to take the...

    Matt Smiths arm was raised before he crossed the finish line in the final round of Pro Stock Motorcycle Sunday in Pomona CA. Matt grabbed his first win of the year and the first ever for Victory Motorcycles. The win broke a three-year winless streak for Smith but more importantly started a...
