NEWS ARTICLE !!!
A motorcyclist participating in a weekend event remained in critical condition Sunday after being struck by a truck Saturday.
James Ruma, 32, of De Soto, was among the large packs of motorcycle riders who took to area roads over the weekend as part of an annual event in St. Charles County called Ride of the Century.
The event prompted hundreds of complaints to local police from people calling to report the riders performing stunts such as wheelies and standing up on their bikes on area roadways.
The cyclists, most on Japanese sport bikes, were en route to a gathering Saturday held at the Big St. Charles Motorsports dealership in St. Charles.
At 2:50 p.m. Saturday, Ruma was driving westbound on Interstate 270 east of Halls Ferry Road when he stopped his bike on the side of the highway and attempted to retrieve a backpack on the highway, according to a traffic crash report by the Missouri Highway Patrol.
Ruma was struck by a 1999 Ford F350 pickup truck, according to the report. The driver of the truck had minor injuries. Ruma was taken to Barnes-Jewish Hospital by helicopter.
James Ruma's brother, Brock Ruma, said Sunday that James suffered severe trauma to the lower half of his body and a ruptured artery in his right leg. James Ruma suffered multiple fractures and was under sedation. "He's fighting," Brock Ruma said of his brother's condition. James Ruma, a mechanic, is married and has a daughter.
Cpl. Jeff Wilson of the Highway Patrol said a handful of motorcyclists after the accident were given citations for non-moving violations involving registration or expired drivers licenses. Wilson said he could not confirm the number of motorcyclists who were riding with Ruma when the accident occurred.
A St. Louis-based group of stunt riders called the Streetfighterz founded the annual Ride of the Century event in 2002, which attracts riders from across the country. Pictures from the event posted on a Facebook page this weekend show some riders wearing T-shirts and sweatshirts saying, "We came to stunt."
"We had a lot of people calling about them doing tricks and stunts," said St. Louis County police dispatcher Scott Hogberg. Despite drawing the ire of other motorists, few, if any, tickets were issued against the cyclists for moving violations. "We had no real issues," Hogberg said.
Several local police departments received calls from motorists with complaints about the motorcyclists driving erratically and blocking traffic.
Frontenac police Sgt. Craig Picha said his department sent squad cars to Highway 40 (Interstate 64) Saturday afternoon after receiving complaints from motorists.
"Anytime you have a large group like this, you're going to get a lot of calls," Picha said.
Picha described the motorcyclists as "orderly" while they traveled westbound on Highway 40 through Frontenac's city limits. "We went to show a presence and had no tickets or summons," he said.
The St. Charles County Sheriff's Department also had no arrests or other contact with the motorcyclists over the weekend, dispatcher Jani Albright said Sunday.
Albright said the department was not contacted by the motorcycle group about the event and did not provide any street or crowd control assistance. "We don't have that kind of manpower," she said.
2013 Perfection Of An Icon - The New BMW R 1200 GS
The new BMW R 1200 GS.
The new BMW R 1200 GS.
The world's most successful travel enduro is perfected.
The "BMW GS" concept has embodied riding pleasure and the desire for adventure for over 30 years. This applies especially to the GS motorcycles with the opposed-twin "boxer" engine. The "big GS" allows motorcyclists to explore the most remote corners of the world - an idea that has already inspired numerous globetrotters to set off on their travels.
But the GS was and still is much more than this. Whether sports-style cornering on winding country roads, excellent travel times due to high motorway speeds, relaxed tours with a passenger or daring rides over rough terrain - every GS has offered supreme mastery of these skills in its respective era and this won't change with the new version.
It is the unique integrated concept of the big travel enduro bike with boxer engine, complete with authentic charm and a powerful, high-torque engine, which is loved by legions of motorcycle fans all over the world to this day. It is not for nothing that the "big BMW GS" with boxer engine has been the undisputed frontrunner in its market segment for many years and is the best-seller within the BMW Motorrad model range. BMW is now beginning a whole new chapter in GS history: the most popular travel enduro in the world has been brought to perfection.
The challenge: how to improve even more following nine years at the top.
Even in its ninth year of production, the current BMW R 1200 GS is still setting the benchmark in its segment in comparative tests with its outstanding overall concept and innovative technology. With over 170,000 units sold, it is the most successful and top-selling travel enduro in the world.
So the challenge facing the BMW Motorrad development department was considerable: to further optimise the GS - an icon of three decades - improve it in all areas and equip it with innovative technical solutions to ensure it is in good shape for the future.
The development goals of the new BMW R 1200 GS:
• Further increase performance overall - without neglecting its
• Perfect its touring suitability.
• Increase off-road suitability.
• Achieve superior figures within the travel enduro segment and beyond in terms of engine and riding performance.
• Ensure preparation for the future in terms of noise and Exhaust emissions.
• Suspension with top handling, optimum traction and increased off-road performance.
• Increase active and passive safety.
• Unmistakable BMW Motorrad design in typical GS style.
• Top quality as is characteristic of BMW Motorrad.
Newly designed air/water-cooled boxer engine with vertical through-flow, integrated gearbox and left-hand cardan shaft drive.
Geared towards the above goals, the entire R 1200 GS was completely redefined, particularly the drive concept.
The performance aspired to, as well as adherence to future anticipated requirements in terms of noise and Exhaust emissions, is ensured among other things by a change in the cooling system. The boxer engine in the new R 1200 GS continues to use air/liquid cooling, however, the coolant oil has been replaced by a glycol-water mixture. This ensures a high level of heat absorption capacity of the cooling liquid for more efficient heat dissipation.
So-called precision cooling (a principle similar to that used in Formula 1) involves only those engine elements being cooled with coolant, which are particularly exposed to thermal stress. The engine still continues to use air cooling, thereby preserving the characteristic appearance of the opposed twin boxer engine. The two radiators are small and inconspicuously integrated.
The through-flow is now vertical instead of horizontal for improved filling, and the engine housing integrates the 6-speed gearbox as well as a wet clutch with anti-hopping function instead of the dry clutch as was used previously. What is more, the secondary drive now runs via the well-established cardan shaft on the left-hand side. With an output of 92 kW (125 bhp) at 7700 rpm and 125 Nm at 6500 rpm, the new engine offers superior power and performance in the travel enduro segment and beyond.
Ferrari LaFerrari Insane Sound!
I have filmed the prototype of the Ferrari LaFerrari (known as the Enzo successor) in action! Video includes the mighty 6.3L V12 engine starting up (a world's first!) and many full throttle accelerations at Fiorano racetrack in company of a Ferrari Enzo. The sound is quite similar to the F12 Berlinetta (after all, they share the same engine) but the LaFerrari has an higher Exhaust note, and at low revs it burbles nicely.
Technical data - Ferrari LaFerrari
Engine - 6.3L V12 with 800hp / 800nm + 163hp / 200nm from the hybrid KERS system
Performance - 0 to 100 km/h (0-60 mph) acceleration below 3s, 0 to 200 km/h (0-120 mph) in 7s, 0 to 300 km/h (0-180 mph) in 15s, top speed over 350 km/h (217mph)
Price - €1.2m and limited to 499 units
