What do you need help with? Alan did you find another room in Cabo, will we have shirts for this race? Who has shirts from last race? I was thinking about ordering some steeekers. WAZ Up?
I found a stash of eleven of the LAMEco beer bottle opener hats from last year..... I may have a line on another room in Cabo but it seems people are dropping like flies.... and I posted a cool video.

The LAMEinator.

Take a look at the ignition & lighting coils on the alternator. With the Baja Design headlight the stock lighting coil wasn't enough. In true LAMEco fashion Owen just piggy backed two lighting coils together! With the addition of a new 5 amp battery everything worked fine.
Also, since we had them, rather than just bring spare tires we are going to have new spare tires already mounted for quick change outs. Some folks might think that we're super prepared but in actuality, being LAMEco, we're just lazy & want to make everything as easy as possible!

Exciting sponsorship announcement...Kali steps up

I had lunch today with Alex at Kali Protectives and they confirmed they are stepping up and sponsoring our helmets yet again. We will be riding in the lightest, most protective helmet on the market. They have committed to provide our riders with their Kali Protectives Prana FRP helmet and level two torso protection. Personally I credit their helmet with saving me from a pretty gnarly injury when I high sided in the dust and whoops at about 50 mph last year coming in on the dump road. I had an epic shiner from a rock but my brain was solid.

Their Composite Fusion Plus technology, innovated by Brad from his engineering days at Northrop Grumman, is so far ahead of the field it is ridiculous. Most helmet manufacturers simply glue or tape the impact-absorbing EPS to the helmet shell; KALI injection molds the EPS to the shell at the near molecular level eliminating any double shock. Aside from offering excellent protection, these helmets are lighter than anything you could ever imagine. You can learn more at http://www.kaliprotectives.com/moto






We are really excited to continue our partnership with Kali Protectives.
