125GP Wildcard Ride!
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).

Customer Service and guarantee!
Many people around the race track (especially during
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
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!
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
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.

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
