    The 111 engine head design really limits HP power and this is why Indian choose to use the 108 engine because of its HP potential and overhead cam design VS the pushrod engine on the 111 engine.

    The Wyman HDs are now sporting a huge oil cooler where the headlight is supposed to be, significantly lowering the operating temperature of the air/oil cooled monster engine... Screenshot_20210714-172629_Chrome.jpg

    I thought with the new head design with the 116 they were improved ? I know it's still not equal to a 4 valve head though

    The head design is improved over the 2020 111 head design but even the 2021 head design on the 116 engine will not compete on a race track like in the battle of the bagger race series with a 108 Challenger with a two into one exhaust, dyno tuned ECM,Lloyds cam cams, and performance air assembly. My friends 108 Challenger with performance mufflers, stage one ECM tune, stage one air filter will almost stay with my 2019, Harley Road Glide, 128-inch build that puts out 140 torque from 3,300 to 5,850 RPMs. From 3,000 RPM's in 6th gear up to 100 MPH his Challenger is only 6 bikes behind me. But my lowers and large trunk and larger fairing have a whole lot more wind drag than his Challenger.

    Thanks for pointing this out. The lead Harley Road Glide was very fast in the corners.

    Or they will do nothing and the series will continue to be a joke.
    97% Harley lineup might as well be called the Harley bagger race.

    Yup if it was 50% Harley and 50%, then it would be fair. I'd actually like to see other motorcycle manufacturers join in on these races too.

    MotoAmerica: Six Rounds For King Of The Baggers In 2022

    MotoAmerica King Of The Baggers To Feature Six Rounds In 2022, Including Daytona

    After A Hugely Successful Debut Season, The King Of The Baggers Will Double Its Rounds From Three To Six For The 2022 Championship

    IRVINE, CA (October 12, 2021) – Thanks to the rousing success of the debut season of the MotoAmerica King Of The Baggers Championship, MotoAmerica, the home of the premier motorcycle road racing series in North America, is excited to announce an expanded, six-round King Of The Baggers Series for the 2022 season.

    Fittingly, the 2022 MotoAmerica King Of The Baggers Championship will kick off during Bike Week in Daytona Beach, Florida, with the Baggers taking to the High Banks of Daytona International Speedway for the first time, March 10-12, in conjunction with the Daytona 200.

    From there, the series will head to Georgia and Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta in Braselton, April 22-24, the site of last year’s thrilling opening round that was won by Indian Motorcycles Tyler O’Hara. The championship will then revisit Road America, the site of last year’s second round, June 3-5, in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, a stone’s throw from Harley-Davidson’s headquarters in Milwaukee.

    WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca is where Kyle Wyman wrapped up the 2021 MotoAmerica King Of The Baggers Championship for Harley-Davidson, and the iconic track in Monterey, California, will play host to round four of the series, July 8-10.

    The final two rounds of the 2022 series will take place at tracks that are new to the King Of The Baggers – Brainerd International Raceway in Brainerd, Minnesota, the home state of Indian Motorcycles, July 29-31, and New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville, New Jersey, September 9-11.

    The three-round 2021 MotoAmerica King Of The Baggers Series generated more than 19 million impressions and an engagement of 1.2 million on social media with the races delivering over 1.1 million views and 43,000 total hours of viewing time on YouTube.

    “The popularity of last year’s three-round King Of The Baggers Series was such that it left our fans, teams, sponsors, and racers wanting more,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “So, we are giving them what they want – a six-race championship held at the three tracks that the Baggers competed on last year with an additional three rounds, including our first visit to Daytona International Speedway, added to the series. We know the 2022 season, which will be MotoAmerica’s eighth as the home to the AMA Superbike Championship, will be as exciting as ever and the expanded King Of The Baggers Championship will be a huge part of that.”

    Last year’s King Of The Baggers Championship came down to a fierce battle between Harley-Davidson’s Wyman and Indian’s O’Hara with Wyman winning the decisive final round at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca to take home the title. Those two will again spearhead the efforts of the Harley-Davidson and Indian factories on their H-D Screamin’ Eagle Road Glide and Mission Foods S&S Cycle Indian Challenger, respectively.

    2022 MotoAmerica King Of The Baggers Championship

    March 10-12 Daytona International Raceway Daytona Beach, FL

    April 22-24 Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta Braselton, GA

    June 3-5 Road America Elkhart Lake, WI

    July 8-10 WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca Monterey, CA

    July 29-31 Brainerd International Raceway Brainerd, MN

    September 9-11 New Jersey Motorsports Park Millville, NJ

    Big Bear Choppers Racing is pulling out all the stops for the 2022 King Of The Baggers Championship. They've enlisted two-time Stock 1000 Champion Andrew Lee Racing to pilot the Harley-Davidson that they're building, and Lee and the bike will make their debut in March on the high banks at Daytona International Speedway.

    Looks like Laguna Seca July 8-10 is the closest they get to me.
    That will be the goal for me.
    Anybody else going to make it to a race?
