I Ride With OG : Samuel Guérin

As you probably already know, this year, we decided to try our luck during the BRL stop in Milwaukee. For this first on our part, we decided to enroll in the LightWeight class, a question of walking before running and learning more about the world of Harley Davidson racing.

We also needed a rider and we had the pleasure of doing business with one of the best Canadian riders on the Superbike circuit: Samuel Guérin. This one, accustomed to racing at the wheel of his BMW 1000 RR, saw an interesting challenge in trying to drive a motorcycle that was not intended for racing, before going to our garage.

For this extraordinary adventure, we surrounded ourselves with Canadian sponsors just as motivated as us: Prémont Harley Davidson, Stinger Trailer, Silverwax, SS Gear Canada, Usinage NTC, Konquer Motorcycle.
