for the Troops!
This problem’s been solved.
The Super Strap, available in 20’, 25’ and 50’ lengths, is made with the highest quality nylon webbing. It takes recovery straps to a new level, allowing the user to attach it to any vehicle without tying knots or using hardware. The unique nylon construction allows you to weave loops at any point in the strap creating adjustability to a minimum strap length of 18 inches. The pulling action during recovery creates a non-slip grip ensuring a strong tie point; but when the pulling stops, the strap allows for easy removal.
The Super Strap has many different
uses. It can lift two times the average vehicle weight, while the compact design
makes it easy to store. The “No Stitching” construction makes it a safer and
more reliable recovery strap. The Super Strap is truly the smartest recovery
strap you will ever own.

“Working Together” Theme at SF
Information on trail ethics, land-use, and places to ride were shared with thousands of race fans and OHV enthusiasts in the pit area. GNCC star, Rodney Smith, also signed hundreds of autographs at the BlueRibbon Coalition booth.
Senior staff from the aforementioned organizations were interviewed by Supercross announcer, Terry Boyd, during his famous “In the Living Room” segment just before the racing started. Dave Pickett, AMA District 36 president; Dana Jones, California State Park superintendent; and Don Amador, Western Representative for the BlueRibbon Coalition, talked about the need for cooperation between the users and land management agencies for the betterment of the sport.
Don Amador, western representative
for the BlueRibbon Coalition, said, “I think it is important for the race fans
to see that access organizations and government agencies must work together for
the future of both OHV and non-motorized recreation on public lands.”
The BlueRibbon Coalition is a national recreation group that champions responsible use of public lands. It represents over 1,100 organizations and businesses with approximately 600,000 members.
Malcolm Smith honored and Bob
Hannah roasted at
An original sculpture of Malcolm Smith in an action posed on a Husky was presented to Malcolm for his years of support for the BlueRibbon Coalition. The artist, Mitch Billis from Bozeman Montana, went to great lengths to create a tribute worthy of its’ recipient. Billis, who is a dirt biker and snowmobiler himself, studied old Dirt Bike magazine articles about Malcolm and even examined an old Husky to ensure the authenticity of the piece.
Motorcycle industry leader Mark Woodward was the master of ceremonies for a “roast” of Bob Hannah. Other champions told stories about racing with Hannah, and what a tough competitor he was. The best story of all was from his mechanic at the time, and current Yamaha Racing Division Director, Keith McCarty. McCarty said that Hannah was always playing tricks on other team members. One day they lured him into a room at the hotel they were staying in, stripped him naked and duct taped him to a chair. They then carried him to the elevator, set him in the middle of it, and punched the buttons for every floor. At the lobby, a guy waiting for the elevator just calmly removed the tape from Hannah’s mouth, asked him which floor he wanted, put the tape back and sent him on his way.
Eric Anderson, who has assisted us at every Breakfast of Champions, conducted the live auction of the memorabilia items contributed by our champions. Several motorcycle adventures were also auctioned to the highest bidder to raise money for BRC’s advocacy efforts. Malcolm Smith donated a 1982 Husky 430cc six-speed motorcycle for the auction. When the bidding didn’t go high enough to suit him Malcolm bought it back himself.
Danny Laporte presented the BlueRibbon Coalition with an $8,000 check from FMF’s Q series exhaust/BRC support program. Laporte challenged the industry to adopt a “Feel the Power” program to show OHV enthusiasts that they don’t need to “hear” loud pipes to achieve maximum performance. Once again Dick Burleson reinforced that message pointing out the importance of quiet pipes to achieving success in the land use issues.
The 2004 Breakfast of Champions was co-sponsored by the following powersports industry leaders. Yamaha, Xtreme Motor Co., Western Power Sports, Warn Industries, Works Enduro Rider, V Force Reed Valves, Tucker Rocky, Trail Rider magazine, Suzuki, Scorpion Helmets, Scott USA, Pro Moto Billit, Progressive Suspension, Power Sports Business magazine, Polaris Industries, Parts Unlimited, No-Toil, Motorcycle Stuff, Motorcycle Product News, Motorcycle Industry Magazine, Motion Pro, Mikuni, MIC/SVIA, KTM, Kawasaki, Intersport Fashions West, Impact Video, EBC Brakes, Fox Racing, Dealer News, California Motorcycle Dealers Assn., Entertainment, FMF, Cycle News and Clear Channel Entertainment.

The overall direction of
Motonation, its sales and marketing plans as well as future product and brand
developments will continue to be lead by Motonation’s President,.Bill Berroth.
Jeff and James will be supported by a new internal operations structure that will allow for a more focused approach. Six staff members (some new and some old) have been assigned the specific and focused responsibilities to: a) Manage Motonation’s remote warehouse. b) Handle the infamous “paper trail” i.e.: the bookkeeping and accounting tasks. c) Manage the production/ordering/in bound shipping of Motonation’s lines. d) Coordinate the companies support rider and sponsored rider efforts. e) Manage Motonation’s product warrantee, its Internet site and advertising. f) And James and Jeff’s new favorite person…their own Sales Assistant!
Where we gonna fit all these guys? Good question because they certainly will not all fit in our present Poway location!
Effective immediately we are in our new digs in El Cajon (two miles from the MX track!!!) which were specifically selected to complement the new staff structure and to position Motonation to handle its next big growth spurt…Ten million a year here we come!
