Get Your Own James Stewart for the Holiday
It's always cool to see our sport break the barriers into mainstream America. When we saw that JS7 was going to have an action figure modled after him, we couldn't resist spreading the news. James seemed pumped about it as well when he tweeted, "Remember when you were a kid & you use to try & get the toy motorcycles? Now look at me, I have my own. Still dreaming." We're not sure where the action figures will be sold, but are betting your local Wal-Mart or Target would be a good place to start.
KTM Heist Abroad - You Can Help!
A delivery of 36 new KTM junior motocross motorcycles has been stolen from a lorry in Kent on the evening of Friday December 9.
Thieves took 35 KTM 50 SXs and one 65 SX. The bikes were still in their individual transportation boxes, still requiring a small amount of assembly from the dealerships they were intended for.
Shaun Sisterson, Managing Director of KTM UK, said: "This theft has a massive affect on availability of the bikes and will result in a lot of disappointed children this Christmas as we are aware that many of the bikes stolen were earmarked as gifts.
"We're doing all we can to get additional replacement units in time for Christmas, however these models are in short supply. We're sorry for any inconvenience this has caused but the theft has been a matter out of KTM's control."
Anybody with potential information regarding these bikes can contact KTM UK on 01280 709500.
