Garage Finds | Villo Light Beer


Garage Finds | Villo Light Beer

Presented by Backyard Design

The Red Bull Straight Rhythm has become one of the most fun events on the calendar, and especially so since last year when the event went two-strokes only. In 2017, interest in the event seemed to be dwindling, but the addition of a two-stroke class breathed new life into the unique event. Gared Steinke won the first two-stroke championship, topping the infamous Ronnie Mac, and the rest, as they say, is history. A freshly retired Ryan Villopoto finished fourth on a super-trick Kawasaki KX250, and that race seemed to jumpstart the “super cool Villo” that we now know as our favorite retired guy.

This year, RV wanted to do something cool to join in on the throwback fun, so in a tip of the hat to Jeremy McGrath, he had the crews at Answer Racing and 180 Decals whip up gear and graphics reminiscent of McGrath’s Bud Light Yamaha days. “It’s a fun event, so I figured why not do something fun and unique,” said RV. “And I love drinking beer, so why not Villo Light?”

RV had a few dozen Coors Light cans wrapped in this custom Villo Light sticker, and I immediately decided to save it for the shelf in my garage! Wouldn’t you?

Backyard Design Graphic Kit of the Week

Custom Graphic Kits Starting At $179.99

Backyard Design was founded in 2010 by two privateer Supercross racers: Jared Hicks from Alabama and Philipp Klakow from Germany. What started off as a project to fund their Supercross racing efforts has now grown into a worldwide graphics manufacturer, with dual headquarters in the United States and Germany. Backyard Design is known for being one of the first custom graphics makers to have a completely interactive website, where customers can design their own kits with a few clicks on a computer mouse.

And the Swapmoto Live kits continue! We asked the crew at BYD to create a kit for our 2020 KTM 450 SX-F test bike and they blew us away again and in short order! Everything BYD has created for us thus far has exceeded our expectations with style, fit, and ease of installation. Without hesitation, we wholeheartedly recommend BYD for your next custom graphic kit, whether you’re looking for something wild or mild!

    Are the beer wraps available? I would love a pack to have for next time I go out drinking with my buddies.

      I’m assuming they were made by 180 Decals, who sponsors RV
