Roush P-51B Mustang to be featured at show!8/2/2013
Visit this year's show and check out this rare P-51B Mustang that will be located inside the Open Road H-D showroom. This Mustang is one of only 51 produced. This ride will be on display beginning Wednesday, August 7th.
About the P-51B Mustang:
ROUSH® Performance continues their homage to the legendary World War II fighter plane with the 2009 P-51B™ Mustang, the second aviation-themed pony car from the Michigan-based manufacturer. This car, based on the 2009 Ford Mustang chassis, will be limited to just 51 numbered production vehicles in the 2009 model year.
The 2009 P-51B features 510 horsepower and 510 lb-ft. of torque matching it as the most powerful ROUSH Mustang ever produced. The car will be fitted with the new Cooper RS3 ultra-high performance tires, which, combined with the ROUSH® Stage 3™ suspension will give a road-hugging ride and nearly unmatched cornering ability. The Ford factory Vapor paint code will be accented with Olive Drab green badging to match the World War II motif, and a rear decklid black-out panel is included. The P-51B™ logo adorns the shifter ball, floor mats and is embroidered into the leather seating. Further matching the history of the fighter plane, which often saw different metal panels used to patch the planes back into flying and fighting condition, the six-piece ROUSH® aerobody kit will have both Vapor and Silver colors utilized for a subtle, but highly unique, look on the road.
The 2009 P-51B™ continues the yellow and red checkerboard accents which pay tribute to the brave pilots of the 357th Fighters Group, Eighth Air Force ETO (European Theater Operations) who were unofficially known as "The Yoxford Boys" after a village near their base.

The REF to be at this year's show!4/10/2013
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation's new mobile training facility, called THE REF (Transportable High-End Rider Education Facility) is designed to reach out to motorcycle riders and to educate and encourage formal rider training. THE REF will go to where the riders are. Designed to be non-intrusive, while still offering the most critical of survival tips, THE REF encourages both riders and non-riders to learn more about sharing the road, crash avoidance, and environmental awareness.
Motorcycles make up less than 7% of all registered vehicles in Wisconsin, yet represent nearly 17% of all highway fatalities, according to data from the 2009 Wisconsin Traffic Crash Facts. This is just one reason THE REF is part of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation's ZERO IN WISCONSIN program to reduce the number of annual deaths on Wisconsin roads.
