Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! 
I am pleased to announce that, effective immediately, I will be joining the E3 family, now being represented by Josh Berman and his team.  E3 has a proven track record and great reputation in sports management and especially within my sport of sportbike freestyle.  Just as I always push to be the best rider I can be, I also want to run the best program I can for myself and my sponsors.  Josh and his team will manage all aspects of my career from sponsorship negotiations and activation (don’t worry, everyone will still have as much access to me as they want – we just have more support) to my schedule and bookings to helping develop the most professional program possible and provide the most exposure for my sponsors, all while allowing me to continue to focus on my riding and being the best rider I can be.
I am sure that Josh will be reaching out to each of you in the near future to touch base and discuss the 2012 season, but please feel free to contact him at any time.  His email is; his office line is 973-338-6995 x-111 and his cell is 973-979-6944.  And, as always, please feel free to reach out to me at  I’m really excited for the 2012 season and hope all of you are too!!  Thanks again for all your support; it’s going to be a great year and building for even bigger in the future!

Inside XDL Premiers on Versus on 10/12 at Midnight EST, 9 pm PST!
Filed under: General
Posted by: @ 2:10 pm

Inside XDL Storyline

In the mid 1990s stunt riding emerged as an aggressive street phenomenon that distinguished itself through frequent brushes with the law, mayhem and chaos. It took over a decade for the sport to find itself and in 2006 the XDL Championship Series was born. In the five seasons since then, XDL has vaulted itself into the ranks of the fastest-growing action sports in America, highlighted by its first demonstration in the 2010 Summer X Games. Inside XDL is a behind the scenes look at the 2010 season as our cameras follow the top contenders in their chase for the national championship. Inside XDL features drama, action, some of the best motorcycle riding you’ve ever seen and of course the obligatory crashes.

Righteous Stunt Clutch - Product Review
Filed under: General
Posted by: @ 1:22 pm

The Righteous Stunt Clutch is an easy pull style clutch assembly that is milled completely out of billet aluminum. The RSC is designed very similar to the other easy pull style clutches on the market, but with a few changes that make the Righteous Stunt Clutch virtually bulletproof.

The three cable positions usually found on an easy pull style lever are eliminated, leaving only the one “easiest” pull setting. The swivel adjuster on the perch has also been eliminated, leaving you with a unit that is made out of MUCH stronger material with a much more straight forward design. We have eliminated ALL of the weak points of the competing easy pull assemblies, and have also closed up many of the SLOPPY tolerances found in them.

The perch has been designed with a rear mounting cap, which is also a much stronger design than the competition. The perch cap is also designed to be mounted flush on top, eliminating the unsightly “gap” found in most rear mounting assemblies. The ENTIRE unit is actually thicker and beefier than the competing easy pull units, while still keeping in mind the tight tolerance we encounter around our handbrakes as stunters.

The basic Righteous Stunt Clutch comes with a delrin bushing pressed into the lever. Delrin is an excellent material used in many bushing applications. Delrin also has a “self lubricating” quality to it, similar to Teflon. We use a bushing in the base model RSC to keep costs down while still providing silky smooth, buttery operation. An extra bushing is included with your order. We WILL be offering the bearing as an option, however, in the RSC Ultimate lever very soon. This assembly does have a lever distance adjustment set-screw to personalize your setup. All RSCs are assembled with stainless steel hardware.

The first run of Righteous Stunt Clutches are ONLY available in the “shorty” lever option, with the delrin bushing. Full length levers and bearing options will be available soon, as well as anodizing.

All orders are shipped via USPS Priority Mail w/ delivery confirmation.

Order yours today!

News 8.9.10

Lots of exciting news from this month. 

The week spent in California for X-Games was action packed!  Thinking it would be a relaxing trip only meant as a Demonstration event, I was wrong.  The week trip included TV interviews, Magazine photo-shoots, and some gnarly riding at the LA coliseum.  Witnessing X-Games history such as Travis Pastrana taking home 2 gold medals, double back flipping his final round after he already won gold and the Paris Rosen front flip attempt that went dirty!  Glad he is okay!!!  (iPhone video clip I took of the crash - 

I feel the X-Games demo vent for XDL & Sport bike Freestyle was an epic event that will def go down in the books as history.  The guys at ESPN were totally stoked on how organized and professional the sport has evolved into.  It sounds like we will be apart of some big future events later down the road!!! 

Big thanks to my Mom, little brother Joey, and cousin Sara for making the trip out to California, offering their loving support!  They have always had my back pursuing my career in motorcycle riding!!!  Check out “Crazy Sue” sporting my Alpinestars Sniper Jacket on board the TeamXMX Kawasaki ZX6R!!  LOL  

I want to give a shout out and a big thanks to Alpinestars, Leo Vince Exhausts, & Strange Music for all the additional support, funds, and swag for my trip!

    Shoei RF-1100-Hadron-TC-6
    Filed under: General
    Posted by: @ 7:40 am

    Shoei just sent me a new RF-1100 just in time for the X-Games Demo.  This new helmet is so light & comfortable!  I cant wait to put on the new lid and hit up the spot today!  The RF-1100 new design features 3 intake vents and 6 exhaust vents for better ventilation.  The new aerodynamic design and vent system will make my practice sessions way more comfortable in this brutal heat!  I cant wait to Grip N Rip with this new RF-1100!  Check out the new RF-1100 at 

    Shoei RF-1100    

    Building on the strongest pedigree in the motorcycle helmet business, SHOEI is proud to introduce the all-new RF-1100. Since its 2003 inception, the RF-1000 has enjoyed great success, but that didn’t stop SHOEI’s world-class development team from throwing out the molds to build a brand-new helmet from scratch. Combining customer and dealer requests with advanced technology, modern testing practices, and 50 years of helmet-building experience, SHOEI is pleased to deliver the finest sport-touring helmet that money can buy. The all-new, groundbreaking RF-1100–where aggressive styling meets SHOEI’s unrivaled attention to detail, and the evolution of perfection is once again met.

    Variable Ventilation System

    The RF-1100’s new shell features three (3) intake and six (6) exhaust vents in total. Wind tunnel testing revealed that the optimal location for exhaust vents is actually much higher on the rear portion of the helmet’s shell than originally thought. Better ventilation and aerodynamic performance is achieved by separating the spoiler and exhaust vents. The exhaust vent holes have been relocated to take better advantage of negative pressure suction, dramatically improving exhaust ventilation. SHOEI’s variable ventilation system allows riders to select the perfect balance between airflow and silence.

    Q.R.S.A. (Quick Release Self-Adjusting) Base Plate System

  • CW-1 Shield
  • AIM+ Shell Construction (Snell M2010-Approved)
  • 5 Shell Sizes
  • Shell-Integrated Spoiler
  • Variable Ventilation System
  • Dual-Layer EPS Liner
  • Interior System
  • Chin Curtain
