Thumbs up AFM Open Twins: New Sponsor - Come Race With Us!

Hello AFM Racers,

BIG NEWS! We have an official sponsor for the Open Twins class at the AFM this year. My company, PeopleMovers, LLC will be sponsoring the class, and even providing a small contingency just to make it interesting. We're very excited to sponsor this class and partner with the AFM to drive interest in Open Twins and all the great machines that qualify for this event.

The Open Twins class has seen it's ups and downs in the last several years at the AFM, but we believe that with the proper focus - and you, the dedicated Open Twins racers - we can restore this class to the exciting, well attended, and highly competitive class that it always was.

I'm happy to report that the AFM has agreed with our efforts to rebuild the class, and we are all in this together. It promises to be some great racing in 2021, and with the incredible machines and talent in this class it will be a lot of fun. There will be an array of different brands and machines in this class including Ducati, KTM, Buell, Suzuki, and potentially others. We will also have a range of racing talent from the super fast front runners, to the rest of the field...all with the passion to race a twin. I can attest...there was great racing in this class in 2020 amongst many different positions in the race.

Please refer to the AFM Official Race Schedule, as this class has been placed in Race #6 on Sunday - just before lunch. We will be at a great time of day, where the track will be warm and the racing will be very good. Who knows, we may even see a lunch time podium at some point.

This is our personal invitation to all of you with a twin motorcycle to come race with us. GoGo, Tigre, Jimmy, Matt, Jon, Steve, Ladja, Nikolas, Dave, and all the rest of you...let's meet for some great racing in Buttonwillow to kick 2021 off right. The AFM is one of the premiere racing organizations in the country, with a long list of national and international race winners and champions. We are lucky to be a part of the AFM and our club needs our support now. This is one more opportunity to show how much we appreciate THEIR support and all the hard work they do to allow us to enjoy great racing. Let's really show our support in 2021.

Please post here if you plan on joining us, and we'll see you there!

PS: Please share this with all of your "Open Twins" eligible friends and let's make this grid what it should be.

Well well, timely indeed! My goal is to join in on this class for sure! I may miss a couple of the first rounds due to work, but I’ll definitely be out there later in the year.

Welcome Maslov, and we're looking forward to having you out there!

A few of us are in the Sacramento area (including me). We should get together for a weekend ride if you have a street bike as well.

I hate to sound like my grandmother, but you're a blessing brother. Thank you sincerely for the work you do for Open Twins.

I am in and I can hardly wait.

Open Twins has produced some epic battles both in and for the AFM. I personally have both won and lost Open Twins races by half a front wheel. I have passed and been passed for the lead 6 or 7 times in just one race. I have tormented and been tormented by competitors on and off the track, in the pits, on the way home, online - you name it. All in fun, all very enjoyable, but don't let the laughter disguise the inner demons driving us all to compete.

Twin cylinder motorcycles do something different to your soul. They are unique. They are sometimes hand made. They are almost always heavily modified. And personally, howling around turn 3 at 11,000rpm feels nothing like thundering through it at 7. Those pulses of power, the grip they produce, and the pounding you feel in your chest. It's hard to tell which comes from your heart or the machine it is wrapped around.

Yes. Open Twins, 2021. Right smack in the middle of any Sunday on the AFM schedule.
