Bike Night @ The Drags

Its Bike Night @ the Drags which means you get a chance to race your bike! @utahharley is hosting this drag night, guys and gals welcome. Basically you can watch from the stands, or race your bike as many times as you'd like for $15. You need to have a jacket, pants, boots, gloves, and a DOT helmet to race.

I know some of you might be intimidated but it's literally the best thing i've forced myself to try in the last 5 years. At first I thought maybe the track would be slick, or I wouldn't have enough time to slow down, etc. But once I did it, I realized the track is incredibly sticky, you have TONS of space to slow down, and it's SO exhilarating i'm 100% addicted. It's not about if you win or lose, it's about pushing yourself to try something new, get out of your comfort zone, and see what your bike can do (legally)!

So weather you're racing or not, come support, it'll be a rad time no matter what. On June 6th there were only 2 girls racing, this time I want to see more gals than guys!!

If you have any questions email jessica@thelitas.co, see you babes there!

It's an opportunity to meet other moto and burger lovers - so, please bring your spouses, boyfriends, or really any guy who loves motorcycles, they're welcome to this event :). Don't be shy!

September Sunday Mass

Sunday Mass

The Litas and Salt City Builds bring you Motorcycle Church, Sunday Mass. Meet at 11:00am at the Salt City Builds Shop. Kickstands up at 11:30, so be there early! The ride will be killer and hopefully we'll see some fall colors! We will ride up to Midway, then head back down through Provo Canyon. This ride is for guys + girls.

Ride duration - 2 hours/104 miles

Gas Stop - Midway Chevron 51 W Main Street

We are excited to get these started again, because if you've had the same experience as us, it's the best way to meet kick-ass people who like the same shit that you do!

After the ride, we'll go and get food for a BBQ at the SCB shop, so bring $5 to pitch in if you'd like some grub & beer. 

Please remember group riding etiquette when riding with a large group and read the info below from BILL @Biltwell.

Ride Route

Bill from Biltwell wrote a great article on Chop Cult about riding in a pack on group rides. We have some riders who are experienced and also riders who have not left their neighborhoods. The most important thing is safety. Please read this entire blog as Bill has seen it all and his advice  is priceless. Respect your 2 wheels and those around you.

“One inevitable thing about contemporary grass roots events is that it’s easy to find yourself riding in a large pack of bikes, most of them piloted by people you don’t even know yet. Of course this can be fun or a complete ball-up depending on where you are in the pack and who you end up next to, behind, etc. While the accompanying story originally published in Roth’s “Choppers” Magazine in ’67 may be old, the concepts are not outdated, only accentuated by the diverse machines and high speeds that mix it up in today’s group rides. The Big Daddy’s advice may lean more toward beginning club riders, but these lessons can be valuable to today’s noob rider as well.

1. Decide before you ride.
Are you a good enough rider to hang with the guys in this group? Be honest and ask yourself if you and your machine can keep up. If you have to think about it very long, have the decency to ride near the back. Know the route so if it gets hairy you can split off at the first opportunity and go at your own pace. This is just as important of a decision if you are a faster rider. Generally groups go a little slower. If this is going to make you antsy or keep you hunting gears, you may want to go off the front and get lost on your own. If you are determined to stay with the pack, simmer down, take you place in the group and hold your line. There will be NO PASSING.

2. You are not an outlaw, so quit pretending.
Maybe you are, but in a group of unknowns, you have no idea who you are next to or who’s coming up behind you. Just because clubs ride two-up and haul ass for hundreds of miles with only a few feet doesn’t mean you can.

3. Hold your line.
Get in your slot, get an acceptable interval between you and the next rider and keep the pace. Nothing balls up momentum and throws everyone off like some jackass in the middle who keeps running up on the next guy and backing off. Adjust this interval to suit the riding environment. On the freeway I always tighten it up so that nerd in the Prius doesn’t cut into the pack. On mountain twisties, give yourself enough room to recover if the guy in front of you runs out of talent. The last thing you want to do is wad up the whole pack because you were following too close for no good reason.

4. What to do if the bike quits?
Well, there are a few choices here depending on the situation. The first priority should be safety, yours and the other riders of course. Signal that you are pulling off so the guys behind you know what’s up. If you are riding with some buddies in the pack, hopefully they’ll pull over. Wave everyone else by to keep the pack moving and then signal some of the slower riders in the back to swing over and lend a hand if need be. Hopefully you can fix whatever it is yourself, but if you need gas or someone else’s expertise, be as selective as you can and don’t hold up 100 riders just because you forgot how to switch to reserve. Bottom line, keep your shit tight so you aren’t “that guy” in the group.

5. Be kind, be courteous, open that door for your mom.
Sorry, couldn’t help but throw in that old Circle Jerks lyric. Anyway, think about the others in the group before yourself. Pass on signals and don’t hesitate to motion that you are slowing down. Choppers have notoriously small and ineffective brake lights, so a little arm flapping might help the dude behind you stay that way. Getting a little chilly or jonesing for a smoke? Just wait ’til the next stop and avoid pulling over in the middle of the run and causing a break in continuity. Realize that even though you have big ol’ brakes on your evo Sporty, the dude on the 70 year old bike behind you can’t stop nearly as fast, so don’t jam on your binders, give him some notice and he will be a lot happier.”

-Bill Bryant
