Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in California Hosts Motorcycle Event
The Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center at Twentynine Palms, California hosted a USMC Safety Stand Down. More than 5,000 military personnel and civilians attended the desert event.

Several grandstands filled up to watch the stunt bike culture
Motorcycle safety was the theme of the day. “It is one of the hottest issues right now in the Marine Corps,” said Master Sergeant Brian Richardson. “We wanted to educate the troops, entertain them and have experts available from places like K&N Filters who can talk to them about products.”

SPEED-TV filmed the event
K&N had a booth open from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. to promote its products and give support to the troops. “Most of the Marines who were there knew all about K&N filters and air intake systems,” said Lisa Watson, of K&N Engineering. “They came in waves to our booth all day long. Most already have K&N products on their vehicles. The few that didn’t have K&N were told by their buddy’s it’s the first vehicle upgrade they should get because of the additional horsepower and filtration.”
SPEED-TV and motorcycle stunt riders joined the enthusiasts for the day. The road to Victory Field was shut down so the crowd could watch the show. Several grandstands were filled to see stunt bike riders in action and to pass on a message to wear safety gear while riding. The event will be televised on the Super Bikes show sometime in 2008.
Richardson rides a Screaming Eagle Harley Davidson, drives a Ford F-350 Super Duty and a 1985 Ford Mustang GT. “All my vehicles are equipped with K&N products,” he said. “I live out here in the desert and K&N protects all my engines from the sand and dust.”
The event was very successful, said Richardson. "We met our goal to make this safety stand down interesting, fun and informative," he said. "Next year it will expand and become an annual event."
