Added reply in a thread Why did factory teams use aluminum tanks back in the day? 2/26/2015 7:50 PM
Back in the early days, they raced 40-45 min. motos, and the pros would run out of gas. They tested, and would add just enough oversize to make it. They do this now for the outdoors. And of course with the heat of the modern 4 stroke, you can start boiling ... more »

Talk to your doctor about a spinal cord stimulator. It might just work for you and get your pain to a tolerable level. FWIW.

I've crashed harder and bent more mountain bikes doing downhill racing than any crashes on my mx motorcycle. I like all the MX safety equipment I wear and fear hitting the ground much less. The main thing I don't like and therefore fear and holds me ... more »

Things like this could reopen sportsman racing. We did this in the 70's & early 80's. Most Vets and Seniors would love it.

See my avitar. Former Davi Millsaps(?) team bike. If you are a vet class, do a 144 kit. When doing your engine, it's not much more. It makes it easier to ride, for us old guys.

I put a 97 CR125 KYB 46mm forks on my 87 CR500. I built spacers and bored out the hub on my gold 87 wheel for the larger axle that the 95 and later front wheel/forks use. The earlier USD's are 43 mm. A bearing kit from Allballs allow the triples to bolt ... more »

Saddleback was one of my home tracks, growing up in East Lakewood. My parents move to Laguna Hills, which is just down the road a couple of exits from Irvine, while I was in the service. I raced there until it closed. We never really knew why they closed ... more »

20/200, Hah! Try 20/450, each eye different. My problem is the contacts dry out and stick to my eyes. They eventually pop out, even the latest Oaisis models. Super comfy day to day though. I've gone back to glasses mainly due to astigmatism, which the

Scotty, have you ever looked into a SCS (spinal cord stimulator) system, which they implant. I just finished the test implant, and had some pretty good results. I'm waiting for my surgery date for the permanent system. The V.A. is having pretty decent ... more »

When you had the abdominal surgery, they may have cut through the pelvic nerve cluster, which comes out of your spinal cord. This can be common on any fairly serious operation in that area. I had cancer surgery through the abdominal area. When I woke
