The caption's a nice touch, 314. The details are always what separates the greats from the also-rans.

An early report I read said two casualties, but it made reference to them being in the street. I infer from that it may have been some distance from the scene. The count will go up, but who knows what sort of accuracy will be granted to official reports. ... more »

Yes. Does no one read through threads? (That's a rhetorical question. I know no one does.) I couldn't figure out why this ad, which, by the way, has about 5 or 6 different NSFW images that rotate through, kept showing up, so I took the plunge and clicked ... more »

Never seen a skinny person drinking a diet Coke. Love the thread title. That alone should provide for some good hijacks and 8 pages of he said she said.

991- You lost what? Teeth? For moto I think the mouthguard is intended more to help avoid concussions related to your jaws slamming together in an impact, or breaking teeth the same way. By the way, your avatar is disgusting. Please think about changing ... more »

While this is certainly not meant to be any sort of exhaustive list, and there's no medical or scientific studies I'm aware of to back this up, my thoughts on the mental side are as follows. FIrst, there's the obvious- mental toughness; a never-say-die ... more »

I brought this ad up before, as it seemed particularly out of place with my history. Turns out it's a nutritional supplement anti-aging ad. Go figure.

Like anything else. It will feel weird for the first few minutes. Then you'll forget all about it. Before you know it, you'll feel odd without it.

At first I thought perhaps he'd lost his rear brake and couldn't get slowed down, but from the second vid., that's not the case. Dude was just hauling too much mail for that turn and outran his headlights.

Most cars jumped by a 50 plus year old male wearing a white leather jumpsuit with 17 stars on a Saturday afternoon and riding a Harley. It's a rather narrow category, but it's official.

Common sense would tell you medium height, lean and strong. I think the general average top guy fits in here, but there's always been a large group of outliers. Mike Bell, RC, TP, Villo, on and on. Now if you want to talk Ideal MX mental type, you may ... more »

Retro weekend? I thought Yamaha was going old school to celebrate their own history. Didn't think this was a full-scale retro weekend like they do at the SX.

Left bike mid-air and landed on my hip/back. Tore something in my lower back muscles. Every time I tried to sit up, I just about passed out. Finally, after about 30 minutes or so, I was able to get up and get to the truck. Muscles knotted up. It was ... more »

Buyer beware. You may be better off cutting your losses and selling what you have to someone else who is also looking for these hard-to-find items.

I wouldn't assess the future of the sport based on this thread. It's more likely that forum users are more apt to be an older demographic. The kids don't have the attention span for it. And given the level of vitardedness that goes on in here sometimes, ... more »
