We had quite the change of pace this past weekend at the Aragon circuit. Weather was a major player in this round of the MotoGP and the wet track took down both Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa, neither of which decided to switch to rain tires. Others who did make switch found they were able to make reasonable lap times without incident.
Unfortunately, Valentino Rossi had a nasty crash early on in the race and lost consciousness for a moment before being taken off the track and to hospital. He ended up discharging himself but I don't whether or not this was against doctor's advice. I hope not as a head injury should never be taken lightly, but I digress.
In the end, Jorge Lorenzo managed to top the podium for the first time this year with Aleix Espargaro following him in for second. Cal Crutchlow rounded out the podium in third place. Click the Read more link below for the complete results.
Our friends over at Sloan's Motorcycle and ATV Superstore are putting together two groups rides in October. The first leaves from Sloan's on Friday, October 3rd and heads straight to Ashville, NC for the Overland Expo East. The Overland Expo is a professional-level trade show that brings together in one place all the camping and vehicle and motorcycle equipment and services you need to get outfitted and get going.
The next Friday, October 10th, Sloan's will facilitate a group ride to the Barber Motorsports park in Leeds, AL. They have also reserved a block rooms not too far from the event in case you haven't made your reservations yet (the hotels near the park sell out fast for this event). Click here for more info on the group ride and click here to go to the Vintage Festival info site.

Southern Woods Rider invites you to attend the 17th Anniversary of the Fall Trail Ride at Loretta Lynn's Ranch. At last years event there were over 900 ATV and Dirt Bike riders from around the nation in attendance for the three-day event. This year could exceed 1100 riders! To cover all levels of riding skills SWR prepares a small beginners loop near the campground area, a 3 to 5-mile novice loop and a 15 to 20-mile main loop with multiple single-track options. In addition we have a Friday Night Poker Run and a Saturday night banquet. The banquet is a big hit so we have limit the attendance to 400 meal tickets. During the banquet we give out special awards and acknowledgments to the event volunteers, touch on any important off-road news and giveaway many great door prizes.

The Iron Butt Association now has its first electric member, Terry Hershner. You may recognize Terry from his several cross-country attempts on his electric motorcycle. Now he has pushed the limits even farther, traveling 1,000 miles in less than 24 hours on his modified 2012 Zero S. The Iron Butt Association (IBA) is well known to motorcyclists as being a group of long-distance riders who cover remarkable distances in short amounts of time.
With only ten days left until our first of two classes, we have filled both the first and second level clinics. If you are still interested in attending these riding clinics you can go ahead and sign up now using the Total Control link at the top of the page and we will put you on the waiting list. It seems we always have a late cancellation (no guarantees though) so you might still be able to slot into the class(es). If you have already signed up, I look forward to meeting you next week at class.

Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa are en route to Aragon after a tricky race last time out at Misano. Just over a week ago at the Italian circuit Pedrosa took a well-earned third place but World Championship leader Marquez crashed on lap ten. The World Champion was able to rejoin the race, though he could only finish 15th.
