Added reply in a thread MXA interview with Ryan Dungey 11/2/2017 7:23 PM

He also stated that the intensity of racing at that level, and the focus required to not make a mistake that could end your career, was just getting too high. He felt Ryan Vilopoto was the one that forced everyone to step up their game. He felt he could ... more »

Started new thread MXA interview with Ryan Dungey 11/1/2017 10:52 PM

The latest issue of MXA has a great interview with Dungey. The truth on why he retired. Very honest. I respect him even more now than I did. Smart man. It's not on line yet, though. Just in the mag.

Hardrock is fine. Not the greatest prep. Don't ride over your limits, get to know the layout. That's the biggest issue there, I feel. Elevation changes means some blind jumping, so get to know it so you don't jump off the track. Has some single track, ... more »

ML512, You did a great job with your shootout. Very "Real world". You keep getting better, each year. Hand salute!

Ditch the SST. I swapped mine for a PC Works, what a difference! I also added an 8oz flywheel weight, it helps hook up, reduce stalling, you won't notice any lack of quickness in the rev. Spend some time with it, let it sag a bit more than what the book ... more »

Added reply in a thread 98 KX250 opinion 9/18/2017 9:21 PM

The 1998 KX250 was a very good year. That generation bike was actually better than the last generation KX250. The bumper KYB forks and shock is your weakest link. If you are just riding it, don't worry, set it up for your weight. Keep the motor fresh, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Gatorback is back 9/13/2017 6:44 PM

The new track never really got off the ground. I don't think the sale of the new property was completed, as it was contingent on the conditional use permit being approved, which it was not. This is common around Florida. The County commissioners and ... more »

I think it's pretty simple: MXA is a Racer / Rider magazine, tests on mods, hardware, setups, etc. Very little race and personality stuff compared to the other magazines. Racer X, Transworld et al: These are fan magazines, inside reporting on the personal ... more »

I think you might be seeing something that might have to do with the Green sticker / Red sticker program. The Red sticker is for closed course events, but cannot ride in BLM open land / desert(s) (that's the green sticker). I'm guessing, I've been out ... more »

As a local resident, myself and a local group of racers tried contacting Unlimited Sports as to doing some local races there, or even a practice day schedule. All attempts at contact were unanswered by Unlimited Sports. So I'm not a big fan, so to speak. ... more »

In 1968, the DT-1 250 came out. It was an enduro, or dual purpose. The DT-1MX was a stripped down version with a GYT kit on it, with an unmuffled expansion chamber. The RT-1 was the 360, the AT1 was the 125, the LT was the 100, the HT1 was a 90. The ... more »

US sales of the 05-07 RMZ450 suffered with the 4 speed. The 5 speed appeals to the American market, which uses 450's for more than MX. I'd be surprised to see a 4 speed.

You guys know Dungey could DNF or crash and be back outside the top 10, and lose this thing. It ain't over yet!

I hate to say it, but it was most likely a neighbor. Somebody close that knows you have bikes. I live in a remote area, and I have a couple of sketchy neighbors. I have cameras, locks, cables, chains, and cameras on the cameras in case they see one. ... more »
