- Bike Checks
This thread never fails. Fuck me, look at that Honda!
Well, what would you say? And as much as he was going mach 9 on it, there were a good amount of of "Eli doesn't like his bike rumours", suspension swaps, balance issues etc, before the end of SX in 15 when he seemed to be getting it together... but he ... more »
Those two stroke vids he did, dang!
He has been riding well this year, bummer for him, probably would have had a good outdoor season.
Yep. Am over listening to rider complaints about the track being more worn out from these longer mains. The fans are already paying inflated ticket prices as it is. Sure it's a lot more tyres, but the answer isn't too revert like we're hearing some riders ... more »
Was it Bogle? Is it me or does it seem like that dude is hitting the deck and doing some crazy shit an awful lot?
And better yet, slow the fucking things down by eliminating the 450s... A couple decades of evolution and we worked out 500s were too much bike. Now we're there again.
Technique has always been important... But the engine revving doesn't work as well on the bigger bikes, and it especially doesn't work for 450s.
Agree! Great to see him back riding like he can, he's cool to watch.
bahahaha. That's fucking hilarious. He's always trolling the orange helmets too haha
It's a scourge in MX these days it seems. 3rd place holeshot bro. What The Actual Fuck.
He chopped Jake?
Did he really? hahaha
So this is based on observations now, but still no source material, just the bit you got wrong about the team not letting him do whatever, which was directly after phoenix... Sounds like you're observations are real unbiased bro. Despite not knowing ... more »
Crazy. And as much as Eli was fast through the whoops tonight, and as much as he's been killing it this year, his bike is still see-sawing like crazy in the whoops compared to say, Kenny the last few years. Fast, but if there is one thing I see each ... more »
He's got so much mongrel in him, he'll always be in it if he's close... Tis interesting how he seems to have been better when the track is soft and Reed when it is hard. Peick said he think's it's just hard to setup, it's window is good when it's there, ... more »
It's probably as relevant as commenting on the character of a stock bike riding at a pace 20 seconds per lap slower than the top pros in the world on their factory exotica.... ?
He's got to think he's got a shot outdoors. 250 champ, a couple good GP and MXdN rides on that 450 bike and regardless his SX series is done, especially when the title riders are actually going to fight for these last few wins rather than ride it out ... more »
Dude. He's won 9 out of 15 races this year, and 2nd in two others. I mean, he's been off the podium one less time than Dungey and has won 7 more. When do we start saying he was dominant?
