AMA pro roadracer Dane “The Wolverine” Westby passed away last night after being involved in a motorcycle accident on a Tulsa street. Dane was an exciting racer, winning several AMA Supersport races and always battling at the front with his friend and fellow Oklahoma roadracer, two time Daytona 200 winner Danny Eslick. Dane was killed when his motorcycle struck a curb and then slid into a telephone pole near the 1400 block of South Peoria. Details are still sketchy at this time. I will update this post as I have more information.
Three intrepid Oklahoma dual sport riders and a friend from Kansas head to Terlingua in the winter to explore Big Bend National Park. Trouble awaits the unwary crew after a rare rainstorm turns the normally dry desert into sticky mud that burns clutches and strands our riders overnight in the freezing desert.
