Safety First Suzuki and Sportbikes.net Form Sponsorship Partnership

Safety First Suzuki and Sportbikes.net Form Sponsorship Partnership



Sportbikes.net, the number one most viewed motorcycle website on the internet is
joining the Safety First Suzuki team in 2007 as a sponsor. Sportbikes.net, also
known as SBN, has just reached a milestone by having 70,000 registered members.
The site is also one of the most popular on the internet, having over 11 million
page views with over 300,000 unique visitors a month.



Fred Folkerts, owner of the website noted" SBN is not an e-zine. We are a one-stop
shop and a "go-to" location for everything sportbike related. You can find
information, reviews, forum topics and member feedback on all makes and models of
sportbikes within the site. Even the exotic makes!"



Fred continued, "We also do focus articles on bikes, products, clothing..anything
related to the sportbike lifestyle. Our writers do non-biased review articles so you
get the real deal. Plus, you can read what other members think about a bike, jacket
or accessory."



"Only 20% of the sportbiking nation really follows racing in depth. We are using
this partnership with Safety First Suzuki to open the door to racing and educate the
casual street rider. Which in turn, will get them excited about the sport which
develops the technology that results in their bike being so good right out of the
box" quoted Fred.



Safety First Suzuki team owner, Kevin Hanson, voiced his sentiments regarding the
partnership. "I'm really excited about partnering with SBN..this will allow us to
reach a much larger target audience and roll out new products such as our soon to be
expanded casual wear line," commented Hanson. "Plus, we will be posting bi-weekly
updates of the team on the SBN website giving people a behind the scenes look at
racing and what it takes to run a team," explained Hanson.



Safety First Suzuki was formed in 2004 by police officer/racer, Kevin Hanson, based
out of Chicago, IL. For 2007, Safety First Suzuki will be competing in the AMA
Superbike series in the Supersport and Formula Xtreme classes and is proud to be
partnering with American Suzuki, 4&6 Racing, GP Suspension, Sportbikes.net, Flipside
Graphics, Vortex, Performance Friction, Pit Bull, Penske, Tsubaki, Microblue Racing
and Hotbodies. Checkout www.SAFETYFIRSTRACING.com to see the Safety First Suzuki
line of apparel and casual wear. Kevin Hanson continues to educate elementary school
aged children nationwide about the importance of helmet usage.

Whit, although you are a far sight closer to Daytona than I am, I would be willing to travel to help out Kevin test some bikes' and their tires

I had read this a couple of days ago, after I re-read it, I realized what a good deal this for both them and us.

Is he testing some 3kg springs or something?

I'm sure I'd be alternating with you if that were the case Whit.

Can't you religious knuckleheads get together and do something meaningful? You could find a cure for cancer with the amount of time you spend proselytizing.

Sheesh.
