    News 2021 Ram 1500 TRX, the Raptor Killer?

    The spy shot has the coil spring covered up, the shock is forward, by the new trailing arms and a beefy pan hard rod. Gone are the leaf springs.

    Paper or Foam Filters

    In heavy Baja silt, I have always run an K&N oiled filter, with a lightly oiled UNI foam hand-made to wrap K&N, then with a fine element dry PreFilter sock pulled over. Rarely has the K&N gotten dirty. Just swap PreFilter, if UNI foam dirty, swap that. Never had to remove K&N in a pit stop. I...

    2019 NORRA Mex 500.....YES!

    2019 NORRA Mex 500.....YES!

    As a long time Baja bike racer, now Vintage car participant in Norra. Let’s see how Mike’s formula works. 500 miles straight in the old cars maybe a bit much, 250 miles a day is OK and the split bike/car routes eases up the worried mixing of the two. Being in one base camp/hotel is much simpler...

    Elisio Having attended and participated in many event/races, your M1K is by far the most Fun! Each year is better and because you openly listen and desire feed-back only makes your efforts successful. I founded and directed the largest (10k+) motorcycle event in Mexico, the Rocky Point Rally...

    What's your race car's name???

    The Baja Triumph earned the name ‘ ElMarrito’ the little hammer, as it pounded many miles up and down Baja since 1967 Mexican 1000.
