The Roadracing World Air Fence Fund was recognized during the Motorcyclist Magazine Motorcycle Of The Year (MOTY)and Best of Motorcycling Awards Banquet, held in Tustin, California last night and hosted by Dave Despain.<BR><BR>The awards are also listed in the November print issue of Motorcyclist, and an early copy of the magazine distributed at the banquet described the award as follows:<BR><BR>BEST DEFENSE: THE AIR FENCE<BR>Hats off to John Ulrich and the lads for levering the AMA off its ponderous ass and into deploying Air Fence in danger zones at this year's AMA rounds. Motivated by his son Chris Ulrich's participation in the AMA's 750 Supersport class, the elder Ulrich felt it was his duty to make conditions as safe as possible, and he did. Ulrich started raising the money in an April editorial in Roadracing World, and had Air Fence up a few months later--following years of AMA dithering. There's a message in there somewhere.
