Performance Times

     
    Jon and Dave bring in the S&S Social media and video team to talk lane splitting, Alpacas, and other Born Free shenanigans. They also cover new parts for the M8, the Indian Wrecking Crew doing wrecking crew things, and get asked which cam will be the loudest. 
     

    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...

    Born Free 2021

    by Matt VandenHeuvel / September 4, 2021

    It's no secret that 2020 was a rough year for motorcycle events. So when we rolled into Orange County for Born Free 12, none of us were quite sure what the weekend would have in store. Would it be the biggest collection of the coolest choppers to date? Would just a few die-hard chopper dudes be...

     

    The S&S crew jumps in their social media guy with his first Sturgis, did he survive? Listen for the details! They also interview an S&S employee who’s been there over forty years and has some stories to tell! Catch that as well as racing highlights in episode ten of the Performance...

     
    Episode number 9 of the Performance Times Podcast is now live! This week Jon & David have the opportunity to talk about big shows and small bikes with the one-and-only Marilyn Stemp! They also deep dive into the ins and outs of the S&S Off Road Division UTV Exhaust.

    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...

     
    Episode number eight of the Performance Times Podcast David & Jon talk with Mike Davis, co-founder of the Born Free Motorcycle show, we cover the trials and tribulations of creating a world class bike show as well as his pet cows and distaste for Canadian Bacon. We also cover the Bagger...

    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...

    The M8 engine platform is capable of serious power, but with that also comes the need to beef up critical moving parts in the top end. The latest from S&S Cycle does just that by combining our roller rockers, bearing quality rocker shafts, rocker arm studs, and cold-formed head bolts into one...

    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...

    Shortly after the Royal Enfield 650 Twin was launched, the crew at S&S Cycle began pounding out performance parts! Our latest is the Qualifier, an all-stainless 2:1 exhaust that looks and sounds the part. Hand fabricated in the US, each system is a TIG-welded brushed stainless piece of...

    Big bore engines are all about the flow, more air in and more air out, anything that slows that down, robs horsepower. The factory M8 intake manifold does a decent job in stock form but starts getting in the way when trapped between 124" and larger cylinders. The stock polymer unit is also less...

    Building bikes has been a staple of the S&S brand since before there was an S&S brand and that sixty plus year tradition of customs continues to this day. The latest generation of builds run the gamut of styles from choppers to race bikes to performance baggers and naturally the venerable...
