We were proud to be at Aragon in Spain when Kyle got his first podium finish. He came close in Philip Island Australia but Spain was special in front of his adopted home based crowd.

Happy to support the Joey Dunlop Foundation 2014
Thank you so much for sending the two covers. I think they look great and have sent the #4 to Kevin at the Joey Dunlop Foundation House at Braddan Bridge and I also forwarded Linda Dunlop the #3 with a letter explaining everything again for her.
I caught up with the team who were manning the JDF stall at TT and they all had a brilliant time. Being next to your stall was an added bonus so everything worked out really well in the end. Thanks for all your hard work and support to the JDF. All very much appreciated.
Best regards hope all goes well for future projects.

Daytona Bike Week – 500,000 bikers in one place!
BIKETOBER -Only 200,000 bikers but worth it!
The BIKEKINI team attended Daytona Bike week and BIKETOBER in Florida USA. This was of course ‘business related’, checking out our US launch platforms and meeting with organizers etc. We are of course motorcycle nuts, so to attend such rallies on such a scale ‘500,000’ bikers is just amazing
We went to Oulton Park to check out another one of our future trade venues.
Great racing – great atmosphere – great crowd!
