Glen Helen Raceway “Feel The Speed” Video and Podcast Episode 001 Robby Bell

PODCAST

 

From his first bike all the way up through the mini’s Robby spent all of his time play riding in the Ocotillo desert.  It wasn’t until 2001 that he lined up for his first motocross race in the 125 Beginner class at nearby Barona Oaks.
“As I was sitting there on the start line my dad looked at me and joked, ‘If you don’t win, we’re selling the bikes.’  Fortunately I won that race.”

 

 And he has gone on to quite a successful career to date.  Though mostly know for his Baja victories Robby actually raced amateur motocross in his first three years competing, qualifying for Loretta Lynn’s Amateur National twice.  But in 2005 an offer came to him with that he couldn’t turn down to race for the Factory Honda Off-road team.  From 2006 through 2008 he excelled, going on to win the SCORE Baja championship three times and taking overall honors in the Baja 1000 in ‘07 and ‘08.  As he was collecting wins in Mexico he was also building his name in the WORCS series by taking home the number 3 plate in 2007.  The 2009 season brought a change in equipment as Robby mounted a Kawasaki, but his attitude and appetite for racing has stayed as strong as ever.

   

“I had a great run with Honda and owe Johnny Campbell and the late Bruce Ogilvie a great deal, but I’m excited and motivated for the future and really looking forward to continuing my relationship with Kawasaki.”
Robby is definitely considered one of the “nice guys” of the sport and, whether at the track or in the gym, you’ll seldom find him without a smile.

   

“I love racing motorcycles!  Sometimes I feel like it’s a dream that I have made such a career out of my passion.  I look forward to getting up every morning to train or ride; it’s definitely a lifestyle and it really suites me.”

   

2012 promises to be a great year as he is to be riding a Kawasaki for the THR, Precision Concepts team, competing in the SCORE, District 37 Big 6 and WORCS series.  Getting back to Baja has been a goal of his for the last couple of years and he’s looking to make the most of the opportunity.

 

“I feel I have some unfinished business in Baja, especially after coming so close to winning in 2009 on a Kawasaki.  Baja has been so good to me; I love the people and the atmosphere and I’m happy to be going back to achieve my goals down there.  I’m very thankful to everyone that has helped me and given me the opportunity to do what I love to do and I can’t wait to get out there and go racing!”

DIRTBIKETEST.com Tests AP Brake Pads – Best Brake pads for DIRTBIKES

 

Screen Shot 2015-12-01 at 2.08.09 PM

 

We tested the AP ORR pads on a number of different late model KTMs and on a couple new Yamaha YZs. The pads install exactly as the stock pads and have the same amount of pad material when they are new compared to standard pads. You can back the pads with the stock brake pads insulators if you wish but we did not during our testing. The newer the brake rotor the quicker the pads bedded in, and like all pads they need to seat in and mate to the surface of the rotor for best performance. We would get the pads nice and hot with some progressively more and more aggressive stops on a surface with good traction every time we swapped them out.

After bedding most riders instantly felt some improvements over stock and on every occasion when being tested blindly the AP pads were preferred over stock without explanation. Riders typically said the AP pads had better feel and improved power, in that order. It was the control of the brakes that was noticeably better.

AP Racing ORR Brake Pads

AP Racing is a very well known brand in the world of automotive racing, and they are quickly establishing themselves within the motorcycle industry.  Using the technology and experience gained through countless championships worldwide and over 50 years of business, AP developed the ORR (Off-Road Racing) Brake Pads for use on dirt bikes.
AP Racing ORR Brake Pads
The AP ORR Pads are engineered to be a high performance option for competitive racers and dirt bike enthusiasts.  The pads feature a sintered metallic recipe designed to offer consistent performance regardless of temperature.  This suits them perfectly for many racing applications, where reliable brakes are crucial to success.
Test riders noted that the pads showed no noticeable fade and felt just as good two hours into a ride as in the first 30 minutes.  AP’s pads improved modulation over OEM pads, and simply felt “really good.”  Durability seems to be on par or better than most OEM offerings.
We encourage you to check them out as a replacement option to your OEM brake pads.  They are available for almost all current dirt bikes and are suitable for OE cast iron and stainless steel discs. A set of pads retails for just $35.99, and are available for purchase online at www.niksindustries.com.  Coupled with AP’s PRF Brake Fluid, you’ll be well on your way towards great braking at the track and on the trails.

From AIMEexpo.com….. The excitement and anticipation surrounding the 2014 American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo) continued to build today by surpassing the landmark 500-exhibitor mark heading into the opening day of the October 16-19 show. Port Orange-based custom motorcycle chain maker Insane Chains became the 500th exhibitor and was one of several companies to sign up in person to be a participant at AIMExpo inside the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC).

AIMExpoBuilding

The milestone achievement for AIMExpo is the latest highlight in what has been an exceptional year of growth since the inaugural event one year ago. The support from the greater powersports industry has resulted in a 40-percent increase in pre-event dealer registration and the addition of more than 100 new exhibitors that translates to a 50-percent larger floor space inside the OCCC. The expansion is highlighted by the inclusion of eight original equipment manufacturers (OEM), each of who will provide global and North American debuts at the show.

“It has been a memorable year since AIMExpo became a reality last October and it’s incredible to see how far the event has come as we head into the second show,” said Larry Little, Vice President and General Manager of the Marketplace Events Motorcycle Group. “We have made it a point to give the industry an effective and efficient platform to improve the business of motorcycling, something it never had before, and following the success of the inaugural event we have seen an outpouring of support from more exhibitors, dealers and manufacturers. As a result, we have a physically larger show with even more products to introduce to the North American marketplace.”

AIMExpo’s newest OEM participants – Ducati, Kawasaki and Zero Motorcycles – are each making their presence felt with some of the most anticipated announcements coming out of the event by introducing exciting new 2015 models. Additionally, returning manufacturers Erik Buell Racing, KYMCO, Massimo, Yamaha and Suzuki are doing the same, making AIMExpo home to the most significant new model announcements for the upcoming year.

Another new addition attendees can look forward to in 2014 is the inclusion of Orlando Harley-Davidson on the exhibitor floor, showcasing the latest models from the iconic brand. After checking out the 2015 lineup, attendees can head to AIMExpo Outdoors! and put them to the test at the Harley-Davidson Demo Fleet. The dedicated outdoor space of AIMExpo is the only one of its kind at a North American powersports trade show and will feature the opportunity to test both on and off-road products from participating manufacturers.

Road racing legend Kevin Schwantz and television personality Cristy Lee will help kick off the 2014 AIMExpo on Thursday morning. Schwantz, the 1993 500cc World Champion, has been recognized for his on-track achievements and contributions to motorcycling by being named AIMExpo Champion while Lee is the event’s official spokesperson and is best known for her co-hosting role on Velocity Network’s All Girls Garage. The duo will make special appearances, take part in meet and greets, autograph sessions and be active participants in all festivities surrounding AIMExpo. Additionally, actor and enthusiast Perry King will be on hand as well, serving as the emcee of the AMA Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Friday night.

The innovative and groundbreaking platform of AIMExpo brings the trade, media and consumer segments of the greater powersports marketplace together under one roof, at one time, in a grand celebration of motorcycling in North America.
