Klock Werks teamed up with Legend Suspension, a suspension line producer out of Sturgis, SD, and is now along for the ride on the annual Legend Suspension Performance Tour and Demo Ride program across the country! Two vans with two bikes, seriously equipped with the best parts Drag Specialities and Parts Unlimited has to offer, haul from state to state to bring reps, dealers, and customers the opportunity to test product for themselves!
It all started about five years ago. Jesse Jurrens, owner, and his team at Legend Suspension knew there was a lot of opportunity in the nation that they weren’t able to tap into. It was time to take that potential into their own hands and inform reps and customers around the country in a new way.
“We knew there was a greater benefit to show up at dealers and have the reps, dealer, and customer ride, touch, and feel the product.” said Jesse.
The idea to tour the country began, and two years ago, the idea morphed into a plan in which two Ford transit vans would tranverse the US, hitting as many folks as possible in 52 weeks.
This year, the 2015 Road Glides are equipped with products by Legend Suspensions, Klock Werks, K&N Filter, Custom Dynamic Lighting, Feuling, and Bassani Exhaust.
Paramount to the success of the program is not just getting the products in front of people but creating a relationship with everyone they meet, from customers, to the techs, sales, and ownership.
Klock Werks already has dealers around the world involved in the “Try It Before You Buy It” Flare™ Windshield Demo program, but the partnership with Legends Suspensions is one more way for you to try the best products on the market before purchase! Think about the demo program as your own personal dressing room.
It’s this same first-hand experience that Klock Werks has dedicated years to with their campaign, Understand the Difference. Ninety-nine percent of people who demo the Flare™ Windshield for their motorcycle ride home with it that day. The increased stability, improved air management, and bobblehead elimination never fails to impress! Klock Werks parts don’t just look great, they are made from the best materials the US has to offer, and they actually improve the ride!
Along with the patented Flare™ Windshield from Klock Werks, the Road Glides have new Klock Werks Device Mounts, powered by iOmounts and Klock Werks audio kits, powered by KICKER. Check out these products for your ride at GetKlocked.com. Shop by Ride to only see parts for your model.
Check out Legend Suspensions on Facebook to see a list of Demo Events coming up, and be sure to talk to your local dealer to learn more about Klock Werks products. If they aren’t already running the “Try It Before You Buy It” program, we can help them get set up!

Scenic Motorcycle Tour for Charity Set for May 4–6
Moorpark, CA, – (21 April 2017) – The “Why We Ride” film, released in 2013 has become the #1 motorcycle movie in America because it is a story about who we are. It told the stories of individuals with a desire to dream, to discover and to explore. The movie hit an emotional nerve with riders and it has spawned an entire social movement within the industry. Director, Producer Bryan H. Carroll and Producer James Walker decided they needed to do something with this passion group of fans and out of that brainstorm came Why We Ride MOTOvational Events. The 3rd Invitational WHY WE RIDE to the Quail is the largest annual charity event and will take place May 4, 5 and 6. The ride begins in Moorpark and heads to picturesque Pismo Beach, CA, moves up into the wooded hillsides and gorgeous valleys of Paso Robles wine country, following the Carmel River along the most seductive canyon road in California, and arriving at the beaches of Monterey in time for The Quail Motorcycle Gathering. All proceeds go to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
“Three years ago we thought we would attract only ‘motorcycle people’ on the ride ,” says Bryan Carroll, producer of Why We Ride Films, organizers of the event. “Quickly we realized that like the movie, our audience was really people who ride motorcycles, which is a very different approach and made a huge difference. That approach expanded our sponsor base, and is responsible for an bigger ride this year – and being able to contribute more to our charity. I’m proud of our team for seeing our potential for good, and pushing harder every year.”
That huge difference is resulting in people of all stripes with a common love of motorcycle riding coming together and taking part. Of course, everyone loves a good cause, but the diversity of sponsors and participants really illustrates how the Hollywood and motorcycling communities have united to benefit those in need, namely children with serious medical issues. A combination of top motorcycle and riding accessories manufacturers have joined with the biggest and best equipment makers and creative service providers in Hollywood, and the unique nature of the 3-day ride (the only one of its kind) allows companies to demo products along the way.
“One of the reasons we have multiple OEMs sponsoring us is because this is about why we ride not what we ride,” says Carroll. “I wanted to bring my two passions to this ride, which is making movies and anything with an engine in it, and this year’s sponsors have captured that.”
Participants in the charity ride enjoy a bevy of perks (in addition to the awesome ride), including cocktails and vittles at the WWR Riders Dinner, gift bags, special guest speakers and VIP access to The Quail Motorcycle Gathering, including private ride to the event, exclusive parking and private lounge access.
