On this beautiful sunny Sunday, the Lean Angle crew took it upon themselves to link up with a few more riders from BMoreMoto and plan a trip down to Southern Maryland for WPGC BikeFest and the MIROCK Superbike Series at Maryland International Raceway.

We have spent the last few weeks doing maintenance, and buttoning up those last few upgrades in time to seize our first heat wave or warm weather. But the time has come to begin plans for this season. Continue reading
