Laguna MotoGP Special: Buy a RSBFS hat, get a FREE coffee mug!

Summertime is here, and that means racing . . . and riding up to racing events. But you don’t want to stand around at the track all day with your helmet hair, the sun burning up your noggin’, do you? Cover up with style, thanks to RSBFS!


These high-end hats offer a great fit along with great style. Show the world that you’ve got great taste without rocking your helmet hair – and score a FREE coffee mug to boot. That’s right, tank up on the caffeine before the ride, and enjoy the protection and good looks of the hat all day long.

The Season of Giving: RSBFS Charity Auction to Benefit the Red Cross!

We’ve had a terrific year here at RSBFS, and we think it is time to give back. Therefore we have donated a large number of items from our logo store, and packaged them up in a No Reserve auction with a starting price of just $1.

Charity Auction Package

All proceeds from this auction will be sent directly to charity on behalf of the staff and readers of RSBFS. We have chosen the Red Cross as the recipient of this year’s donation. We won’t keep one red cent from this auction, and with no middle man or distribution fees, you can be certain that all the proceeds will be donated promptly and directly.

Dutch Masters Volume II – 500cc GP rider Wil Hartog

In celebration of Two Stroke Week, RSBFS proudly brings you the second round of our Dutch Masters series – this time highlighting the exploits of GP Racer Wil Hartog. If you missed the first volume of this series, you can check it out here: Dutch Masters Volume 1.

Wil Hartog was born in Holland, the son of a Dutch cattle feed farmer. Wil’s father was resolutely against his early racing activities – not because of the danger, but because of the loss of labor! As grass farmers must harvest when the grass is ready and the land is dry – and as there is not a lot of opportunity for that in rain-soaked Holland – Wil’s racing exploits often took him away from the farm at inopportune moments, to the chagrin of his father.

From his early days racing a converted Suzuki T20 (twin cylinder, 250 two-stroke) street bike in 1967 – a restored example showing in the foreground in the museum picture above, Wil showed talent. He also saw that better equipment made for more reliable machinery, and more winning. In 1968 he switched to a 125cc Honda CR93 and promptly started winning races – including the championship that year. All told Wil became a 12+ time Dutch championship winner, and overall race winner in 250cc, 350cc and 500cc International class machinery.

Video: 1977 GP at Assen

Wil is probably best known for his 500cc GP days, racing and beating the likes of “King” Kenny Roberts, Barry Sheene, Mick Grant, Giacomo Agostini and Virginio Ferrari. The 1977 win at Assen – the Dutch GP – made Wil a country hero. Wearing his traditional white leathers with the country flag on his helmet, Wil braved the wet conditions to take a monumental win. And while he was not to win a formal 500cc championship, this 1979 video from Hockenheim shows just how competitive the “white giant” really was. Fun fact: The fathers of both Carl Fogarty as well as Valentino Rossi competed in that event!

Video – 1979 at Hockenheim:

RSBFS had the distinct honor to be provided a private tour of the Wil Hartog museum by the very man himself. Now in his mid sixties, Wil remains trim, fit and very much in shape. He retains a twinkle in his eye, a quick smile and moves like a much younger man. His English is impeccable. And he continues to ride his Nico Bakker-framed RG500 on a regular basis during vintage events at tracks such as Zandvoort and Assen.

Today Wil is head of a grass farming legacy as started by his father. The lands and the output have grown considerably, and Hartog-Lucerne has spread globally. From farm laborer to GP racer to corporate owner – Wil Hartog has certainly led an interesting life! For more info on the farming concern, check out the details of the operation here.

If you should find yourself in Holland, do yourself a favor and make some time to visit the Wil Hartog museum. This is a private affair, and resides on the Hartog-Lucerne premises. While modest in size, the story told of an unassuming young farm boy turned into national hero is worth the trip. For more information, the museum can be found here:

RSBFS wishes to thank Wil Hartog for his time and boundless enthusiasm, as well as Nico Bakker for helping arrange the tour. I really cannot wait until the next time RSBFS has an opening in our European correspondence desk…

Shop Black Friday at!

Need to do a little holiday shopping for a friend, or need to point your spouse to a place to shop for you? Check out our new sportbike parts and accessories store!

We handpicked items that we’d love to find under the tree as sportbike enthusiasts, and then used eBay to show listings that might be of interest to shoppers. In most cases, we picked products we actually use ourselves and felt confident recommending to you.

My personal favorites are the GoPro HD Motorsports Hero video camera, posters, and the Canon 30D camera — because that’s what I use!

Next week, we’ll be adding a new feature to shop for aftermarket components specifically for your bike. Stay tuned for updates!

If there is something you’d like to see in the store, leave a comment in this post and let us know!

Happy Thanksgiving to all our readers and supporters!

– The RSBFS Team: Alex, Doug, Steve, Phil, Dan, and James.

Our First Testimonial Post AND Promo Post, All In One!

Nathan wrote me a few weeks back to tell me about the awesome NSR250 he was able to pick up as a result of seeing the listing here on Here is his note:

I was having alot of trouble finding a rare premier looking NSR for a while as I didn’t want to have one shipped to me!! So I stumbled onto this site and low and behold there it was!! 1994 NSR 250 in perfect condition.

So I contacted the owner Mark of the bike he was so cool had all the info I needed. His NSR was truly perfect and I HAD TO GET IT! He also has a sweet looking Ducati 1098 in the garage – life is rough for him! I bought the bike from him to go along side my 08 Yam R1, and even after the sale whenever I had a question about the bike, he always went out of his way to answer it.

I am so happy with this NSR, and Mark is also the man! Thanks for a great purchase.

Without this site where I found this NSR I would still be looking because Mark really didn’t list it anywhere but here so i want to thank Dan for having this site for guys like me.


I know I speak for Alex, Doug, and Phil when I say we loving hearing this kind of feedback! Thank you so much for the kind words. And thank you to Mark for the tip to list the bike here as well.

Nathan wasn’t done though. He’s with and generously sent me a nice box of t-shirts as a thank you! I of course took one for myself and here I am before my morning ride last Saturday:


The rest of the shirts we’re giving away to the readers of! Here’s what you need to do to get yours. Start a new comment on this post and include the following to help us serve our readers better:

1. What was your favorite listing on our site this year?
2. What is the next bike you’re shopping for? (Fantasy shopping is fine!)
3. What are you going to be riding when you wear your WarriorWear shirt?
4. Would you prefer a Large or X-Large shirt?
5. Optional: If we had a special holiday store that you could point your spouse to, what would you want in there (i.e. Motorcycle stuff you’d like to find under the tree)?

That’s it! First come first served. I have 8 XL’s and 10 L’s. All the shirts are different styles and yours will be picked at random. But I’ll even pay the shipping if you’re in the U.S.

Update: Shirts are all sent out now. Many Thanks to Warrior Wear!

Many, many thanks to Nathan for the hook-up and testimonial. I’ve got a handful of other testimonials that I’m going to publish in the coming week or so. If you have a successful find as a result of this site, I’d love to hear about it:
