Also from MN

ZG/Bjorn...he is a joke and scam artist

-Calender scam (never paid the photgrapher)
-trackday scam (he didn't payfor those dates at DCTC)
-Charity drive scams (he was the charity)
-Daytona bus trip scam (no insurance and most flew or drove home rather than sitting on the steps for 1700 miles back....the paying passengers had to drive, the accomadations were not where he said they were, he "forced" others to chouffer around another backpack he brought---she was astute and rented a car after the first day---but Bjorn expected, no demanded that they all blindly follow and trust him, he ran out of money and someone else had to pay the gas bill to get the bus home, etc.....
-Year end 'awards banquet" scams of not giving out all the gift cards etc that others collected for the drawings, hell he pocketed the drawing monies too instead of paying the DJ that he promised to pay
-Halloween party scams, slathering ZG all over everyone elses hard work and then keeping the food and money etc... (This was also the case for the "suspension seminars" the first "DCTC trackday" and more)

Hey Motoprimo figured it out, why do you suppose they distanced themselves from him....So did that other dealership who paid for the IMS booth and put on all those events at their location--Bjorn tried claiming it was all him

Why do you suppose all the members from when it started have left, they all got scammed or tired of seeing him scam others....Those who remain are simply there for the drama and/or the stupidity. Yes I am sure there are some good members, but why associate with a known low life scam artist!!! Who needs their name tied with that? All those "friends" that you have can get together and do plenty on your own without tying yourself to a scam artist.

Scam artist to the max

Then we can get into the nearly mint 08 CBR1000RR he bought from Vince and promptly crashed days later with no insurance-didn't pay vince the payments for months. Actually didn't catch up at all until he finally totalled the bike a year later and then got insurance to fake a claim.
Oh yeah that is where all that money he made off those DCTC trackday events went (since he never paid the track for the rental) He was "customizing" Vinces old bike to make it his own....lol--he had to do crash repair! If you call crashing the bike and wrecking everything on it and then slapping on crap plastics and rattlecan white paiint customizing....well then okay, he customized it...Cocaine

Hey what about his jail stint for his multiple (as in atleast 9) driving offenses; driving without insurance, driving after revocation, failure to appear and having warrants issued

And how about his snooping into everyones PM box...Yes he knows your password and then goes and tries them on your email and other forum accounts.....Ask Rookie or a whole list of others who were bit by that

My advice, run, run far away from TEAMZG and BJORN

Go look at 1000RR.net, MNSBR plus it is all over facebook accounts too. You'll find all kinds of threads about Bjorn the scam artist that'll surely would make his mom proud....not


Do not say you have not been warned !

Interesting but for me I've met a lot of cool people on all of my forums and for me it's all about riding and talking with people that share the same passion. As for being crossed I'm not a shy person and have no problem taking care of things I pretty much give everyone the benefit of the doubt.

Started riding last May, bug hit me pretty hard and I did 9,400 miles. Bought a Triumph Bonneville in early May. At the same time my wife also picked up a Bonneville and my youngest kid (22) picked up a 2008 Ninja 250.

When you first buy a bike, you have no idea which direction you are going to grow in; what it is about the bike that turns you on. If serene fair weather riding then later you go gold wing. If dress-up or weekend 'sons of anarchy' fantasies you'll end up with a Harley. If it turns out that you love adrenaline you end up going sport bike. I had no idea what I'd like so I started with a retro-bike and glad that I did. But, I quickly learned that I love the adrenaline and as I got a couple thousand miles under my belt began to push things a bit, watched a lot of vids on cornering, started to wish I could ride with people who knew what they are doing.

Last week, the youngest picked up a 2008 R6 and I picked up 2008 ZX-6R special edition.

Riding isn't enough, so it's my goal this summer to be able to completely change out tires, tighten chains, and do pretty much anything else to the bike that needs to be done. Last year I did a complete fairing change on the Ninja, and replaced the stock exhaust with a Yoshi; but I had to rely on a shop to put on the Perilli Sport Demons that I bought for it.

This weekend I'll be installing a fender eliminator and flush mount front blinkers on the R6; and if time permits frame sliders and swing arm spools on my ZX-6R.

Hard to believe that a year ago today I had zero interest in motorcycles or motorcyling. For long years some friends had tried to talk me into it but I always blew them off. Little did I know that they were trying to help me. But, now I know.

I'm stoked for what will come this year.

From the Twin Cities as well (Woodbury area). I'm on ZG & TwistedAddiction as well. Not on MSNBR

Bought my ZX-6R March of 2012 and love every minute I'm on it. Will be putting on some new levers and grips that I got from Rideitmoto.com. Hoping to put a TwoBros slip on as well.

Interesting information about Bjorn there...
