Randakk’s Vintage Honda Race Team Sponsorships

Randakk’s Cycle Shakk is the Class Sponsor for AHRMA’s Vintage Superbike Lightweight Class.

This is a hyper-competitive class filled with many talented riders. For many years, the class was dominated by the mighty Honda FT500 Ascot thumper.

Randakk’s and Z-1 Enterprises are also sponsoring six-time AHRMA National Champion Dennis Parrish, who will be riding Hondas AND Kawasakis in the 2017 AHRMA vintage road-race series.

Motorcycling changed my life. I mean that quite literally. If there weren’t vintage motorcycle enthusiasts, there would be no persona known as Randakk. For that I am sincerely grateful. That I am able to earn a living immersed in such fabulous machinery is quite a blessing. This Riding Skills project is dedicated to my customers who make all this possible!

It helps keep you connected to the machine and aware of subtle changes in performance and operational feedback. In my experience, all top riders are “sensitive” to the condition and needs of their bike. The machine talks a very specific language – you must learn how to listen.
