Two-Wheel Tuesday Spotlight: #120 Team AP MotoArts Yamaha MT-07 Twins Cup

Cooper McDonald’s podium finish in the MotoAmerica Twins Cup race at Utah Motorsports Campus was one of the most genuine and joyous displays of pure motorcycle road racing-induced emotion ever seen. At the time, McDonald’s #120 Team AP MotoArts Yamaha MT-07 sported a distinctive, albeit plain-primered, livery but, by the end of the year, his Andy Palmer-prepared bike displayed vibrant colors that are more in keeping with the Oklahoman’s vibrant personality.
