April Events Recap

By Nick Napoda
on May 03, 2012

April could go on record as our busiest month ever for events.  We hosted the North American Dealer Academy for the 1199 Panigale at NOLA Motorsports with Ducati North America.  This job included prepping 20 1199s for two weeks while trying to keep it a secret from our customers that we were holding 20 of the most anticipated motorcycle of 2012.   200 dealers from around the country got a chance to experience the 1199 for the first time at the one of the premier race tracks in the world.  It was a great opportunity to show-off NOLA Motorsports and the City of New Orleans to our peers.  



This month also included the first official press conference announcing the Triumph Big Kahuna AMA Pro Road Racing event this October.  Jason DiSalvo was on hand to provide the press with some sighting laps on a stock Daytona 675R.  That evening we hosted an event at our downtown showroom.  It was a great event attended by many local enthusiasts in addition to officials from the AMA, FIM, and personalities from Speed TV.  At the end of the evening Jason signed the tank of the bike he used to test the track.


Last but not least, we ended April with the official grand opening of our track-side Motorbike Speed Shop at NOLA Motorsports Park in conjunction with the National Unveiling Night for the Ducati 1199 Panigale.  Being able to introduce the world's most anticipated motorcycle at the world's newest racetrack made for an awesome event.

One of the perks of being in the powersports industry is the access we have at MotoGP races. My dad, Max and myself made our third trip to Indianapolis last weekend for the MotoGP race. The three of us try to make a trip to at least one GP or WorldSBK race every year.

TTRNO at New Orleans' Bull Run Event @ NOLA Motorsports

By Nick Napoda
on July 22, 2011

There are some perks to being in the powersports business and NOLA Motorsports Park's opening is sure to enhance these experiences for us. Last Wednesday NOLA invited us to attend the Bull Run Live Rally as it came thru New Orleans on their trek from Las Vegas to Miami. The Bull Run is described on their website as "the most glamorous and high profile of the new breed of high-end luxury lifestyle automotive rallies". I would sum that up as "race" from Las Vegas to Miami with very expensive cars attended by celebrities and unique personalities.

It is time to get YOU on the track!

By Zachary Materne
on April 20, 2011

We talk a lot about track days, and there are quite a few people who ask us, "what are track days all about?". Track days are like any other motorcycle or scooter event that brings people together around one common interest, enjoying bikes! One common misconception is that track days are races. Well they are not.... Track days are the opportunity to ride a motorcycle in a controlled environment. It allows you to let go of all of the worries of cars not paying attention to you, or speed traps and redlight cameras while you improve your riding techiques. Imagine being able to ride your bike like it was designed to be ridden.
