Probably true, but I still like the folks at the old Aurora Suzuki, now the Triumph/KTM dealer. They still had several vintage bikes in the windows last summer. There's also an ADV bike accessory company that looks like it's located just up 99 from there. ... more »

Two different series with two different sets of rules..... What could go wrong with that? The promoter of the event (who is losing money on each of them already) now has to pay fees to two different sanctioning bodies/promoter groups. Sounds like a recipe ... more »

My first thought on the star would have been to put it on a rigging similar to a "rotisserie". Spraying downward lightly, then spinning to the next "blade". Would that have been semi-feasible?

I record most of the prime time sitcoms and watch them occasionally when I can skip commercials and they only take 17 minutes each...... I know it's kind of a silly show, but I always make time for Life in Pieces. Stupid show but I absolutely love it. ... more »

Seawater isn't potable, nor is it going to do well for irrigation....... The cost of desalinization is pretty high compared to piping it in, or even trucking it, etc. Stormwater drainage can wreck local tidelands pretty easily. Hard to decide who pays ... more »

The "fair fight" is whatever they agree to..... Using more than boxing would be a great advantage to whoever was trained in that discipline. There is no way a boxer who didn't train for MMA would do well without completely retraining themselves. From ... more »

I remember this picture from when it was originally published. It's one of my favorite shots of Ward, and really all moto, not because he's doing anything too crazy, but it sort of shows how the sport used to be more about racing than appearances. The ... more »

Added reply in a thread How come I'm seeing so many comments on Dungey..... 2/20/2017 4:28 PM

I think he may have dumped in 4.95 last season alone with his own broken neck....... If it were strictly Roczen's crash, it might not have much of an effect. Throw in things like Jessy Nelson and his own injuries, and it isn't difficult to believe that ... more »

Added reply in a thread How come I'm seeing so many comments on Dungey..... 2/20/2017 2:19 PM

I really think that Dungey and Roczen have more of a "relationship" than it may seem. Obviously they're competitors, but I get the feeling that Ken was sort of a "little brother" in some respects to Ryan. Not sure that the same type of relationship existed ... more »

My direct experience with what I would consider "robots" is somewhat limited, but generally they haven't so much replaced humans, but rather allowed humans to produce things more consistently and at a higher rate than could be possible from simply throwing ... more »

Yeah but your starting number is off by over 10 million...... You understand the biggest driver behind this, don't you?

Added reply in a thread Motorcycles going into a RECESSION 2/17/2017 4:03 PM

Those numbers are off by about 10 million. And the main reason for the drop in participation is an obvious one that has been discussed since I was in elementary school.....

Ridge does auto transport I think. Haven't seen him post in a while, though...... I think he mostly did higher end collector car stuff, but maybe not.

Rumor has it that a couple of top 10 Snocross riders are contracting Baker for their programs in 2017-18. Sounds like they are looking to step up to the next level......

I'm not a DMSO user, nor that knowledgeable about it much. My post was simply pointing out a possibility that the analgesic effect could be enough that the average rider could reduce pain enough to "ride through" arm pump, not that DMSO (or any topical ... more »

We deal with this stuff all the time and it's a definite balancing act. Building reservoirs sounds easy, but that means diverting water in a dry year from an already depleted river. By the time that river reaches the ocean, it's a trickle. Unfortunately, ... more »
