Destry Abbot is considered one of the Iron Men of off road motorcycle racing, competing in Hare Scrambles, Desert Racing, International Six Days, Hare and Hound, GNCC and WORCS races over a long and successful career. Just as competitive and hard working is his long time mechanic, Jonny Weisman. A racer himself, Jonny knows what it takes to build and maintain a motorcycle for one of the best racers in the business.
"My #1 favorite tool would have to be the folding sag tool. For sure it is the tool that makes life easier for me, especially as much as we check sag on the bikes. Suspension sag is so important to get right, and we use different settings depending on what kind of course Destry is racing on. Suspension setup is so important so that Destry is comfortable and fast on the bike, especially in the long races we participate in. When he is comfortable, we win races. The Folding Sag Tool helps me get it done right the first time, and it's fast and convenient."
Motion Pro is proud to be a long time sponsor of Destry's racing program. Destry is defending his National Hare and Hound Championship in 2009, and is also competing in the WORCS series, AMA Hare Scrambles, the Best in the Desert series, and the ISDE in the fall. Any time you are out at an off road race in 2009, keep your eye out for Destry, he will most likely be there. Don't forget to stop by his pit and give Jonny a high five, to let him know what a great job he does for a great racer.
