Q Crew on Ice

During the dead of winter in North America a very unique spectacle occurs each year. Thousands of people descend upon the large frozen inland waters of Lake Winnebago in central Wisconsin to take their chance at spearing a very large and elusive prehistoric fish known...

MERCURY RACING 1350S POWER CURTIS TO HISTORIC COWES-TORQUAY-COWES VICTORY

The legendary Cowes-Torquay-Cowes endurance powerboat race finished Sunday in what will go down as the roughest in the event’s 56-year history. Thirty two to 38 mph winds stirred up 13-19-foot seas – challenging competitors and equipment. The 190-mile endurance race was created in 1961 by newspaper tycoon and...

Babes Ride Out

Feeling Nostalgic

Here at the Q Crew HQ, a fair chunk of folks are out of the office this Friday trying to wring out that last bit of summer bonding time with friends and family while the weather is still spectacular above the Mason-Dixon line.  That bittersweet time...

Beer or Champagne?

Alright QCrew, we all do it sometimes. When hanging out at the race track after an event, after taking off our helmets and gloves and opening our first beverage after the track has gone cold for the day, we speak disparagingly of a highly shined “garage queen” car or bike sitting in the infield. But we petrolheads are really a welcoming lot, and in a quieter moment away from the smell of race fuel and the adrenaline of fresh competition we will admit to admiring the art and elegance of the classics. In fact, some of us actually attend and participate in car shows and – gasp – even a Concours d’Elegance from time to time.

Quicksilver BMW R100RS

Our friend Kevin Hill named this outstanding 1983 BMW R100RS custom build “Quicksilver” after us (about 50 years after us, but that’s another story).  This very clean ‘silver on silver’ cafe racer features contrasting slate grey leather, fully adjustable period handle bars, Raask rearsets, front and rear Brembo brakes, and Hagon shocks. Black upswept cocktail shaker mufflers that make this 1000cc flat twin sound really raucous.

Back to Bonneville

As you know, the QCrew is no stranger to Land Speed Record Racing (Quicksilver Motorcycle Land Speed Record). After a couple years of bad conditions on the salt at Bonneville it is a thrill to see new records being set again. Danny Thompson’s story of setting a new piston powered record of over 400 miles per hour last week (August 14, 2016) is particularly inspiring because he did it to fulfill a dream of his father, Mickey, in his original racer from 40 year ago.
