MavTV On The Edge Interview with David Kohlstaedt

Team rider and rising star, 15 year old David Kohlstaedt is racing on the Destination Harley-Davidson XG750.  The team was able to spend a day with Dave Alexander at Fluid Suspension Science and now we know that David has a bike that will handle as well as he can ride.

Unfortunately the race organizers would not let David race in the pro race so he raced his 450 in the Open Expert class and the XG750 in the SCFTA Hooligan class.

After David’s first practice with the new suspension, David was all smiles.  David was 2nd overall in lap times today.  Going into the mains, David was focused and confident in the performance of the XG750.  Steve says, “The fact that this bike has come around so quickly is amazing and a testament to David’s ability to translate his riding needs to his team.”
