An Indy 125GP Wildcard Ride!

An anonymous benefactor would like to have his bike ridden one last time before they retire the 125GP class this year.


The bike is a fully kitted 2008 RSW125 Aprilia.

Fully tuned, and was competitive in the top 10 last year at world GP, it will come with a tuner and all expenses paid for the wildcard ride.

The rider will only have to pay for his/her transport to Indy next month, and a testing opportunity prior to the race.

3 riders will be chosen for a "ride off", and only one will make it for the last Indy wildcard ride. With the second place rider as a back up.

Please submit your riders resume to us immediately via email, and no later then Thursday (tommorrow 7/21/11).

The bike has arrived in the US last week.
I was just reminded that you must be old enough to hold an AMA Pro License as a minimum requirement to ride with the FIM. Team applies for the rider, and FIM approves with at least AMA card. Also, FIM states that 125 wildcards must be under 25 of age.

Rising Sun Cycles is helping to put a rider together with this team and we will submit your resume
to the team and you will be contacted by them if selected, to go over details.

Attention! Bruce Lind of TZ250 racing fame and Ring Master of the Bruce Lind Racing Traveling Circus, is working towards having 5KE cases made. He needs a minimum of 10 orders to make this happen.  If you want to read more about it and place an order CLICK HERE

Tilley Hat

 Incredible Customer Service and guarantee!

Many people around the race track (especially during Penguin Road Racing Schools) can find me by looking for my hat. It is a Tilley of course. It keeps the sun and rain off better than many hats I have had,

The company claims to replace the hat if you ever wear it out or lose it! I had absolutely wore out the last one I had due to more use than many people probably give theirs in the same period of time. I sent it back to Tilley with a story praising their product and a new charge card telling them that I did not expect a replacement but just wanted the exact hat again. The hat did it job as expected and I fully expected to purchase another. They honored their statement and sent me a new hat Free of charge anyway. If you need any quality outdoor clothing you need to check Tilley first!

Honda has taken the wraps off its 2012 Moto3 machine by unveiling the new NSF250R in Japan.

Planning ahead for this race season!
Rising Sun is rebuilding our inventory for the 2011 season but some things have changed in the world which has affected expediency of international shipments. So we ask that you plan ahead if possible for such items as bodywork and other major items. Some issues have developed in business concerning products being shipped in from outside the country that have created some hurtles. There are new rules about freight on passenger planes entering the US. Our border patrol will not allow packages from some countries on planes any longer since bombs were found in freight parcels. Our suppliers in Japan have filed all the necessary paperwork for this not to affect our shipments too badly in the future but it has slowed a couple of shipments so far.
We only found this out when some items shipping from Holland via Priority mail were put on a container ship which delayed the shipment by over a month. Our supplier did not know this was the case until he tracked the parcel that we both thought was lost. We were told that any Priority Mail parcel which weighs over 0.5 KG will travel by ocean rather than be allowed on a passenger airliner. The package shipped on the 15th of Dec and did not arrive until the 20th of January. We have taken steps to avoid these issues in the future  but the rules can change again causing more problems.
Just another thing to deal with.

One of our sports up and coming young riders and his family needs help after a devastating racing crash.
Zac Chapman was injured on August 8th while in Virginia at a race in a practice run.
Each day that there is an update to report, it will be updated. That address is:  http://www.newriver.tv/zac

The USGPRU F450 class will run with the AMA Grand Championship weekend at Mid Ohio in 2009
The rules for the class have been tweaked to allow more bikes to be eligible for the class. The underlying rule will remain that the bikes must be powered by a single cylinder dirt-bike motor that is not larger than 450cc. Bikes may now use GP chassis or custom (Spondon, Tigcraft, etc) frames may be used to house the thumper powerplant. The bikes must all be fully faired roadrace machines and must conform to all of the technical specifications as outlined in the USGPRU rulebook. For full details, visit the USGPRU website.
