The flaw with ur logic is that u are implying that PEDs are a shortcut. I know there are racers that dont want to have to use PEDs to level the playing field. But I can only honestly think of one pro that I know it would drastically improve his results. ... more »

Depends on who u ask. There are a few different reasons people are anti-PEDs. Too bad reason wasn't used in forming their bias. If "leveling the playing field" is the goal, good luck with that. It goes against everything competition is about. Everything ... more »

Bingo. U get it.

I'd recommend responsible PED use long before recommending any athlete drink a "energy" drink. Our society couldn't be more full of hypocrisy.... ....the majority of our country is hooked on antidepressants or some other drug. And alcohol? Pssh. The ... more »

Or more like saying, if u smoke & are a alcoholic, then it doesn't make sense to waste money at Whole Foods. If safety is the concern, MX isn't safe. It's that simple.

Would works bikes really change the finish order? No. So I could care less if they're allowed. If u think getting rid of worx bikes had anything to do with leveling the playing field u are wrong. Its about the OEM's saving money, and creating a situation ... more »

The GP testing is a sham.

So what if they had to take PEDs to be competitive? U gonna tell me the other stuff athletes have to do on the football field is remotely good for their health? Plenty of kids are "forced" to jump jumps that they aren't comfortable with in order to stay ... more »

I appreciate your insight. But in my experience it is still up to the sanctioning body if they want to enforce any penalties. Very prominent riders have failed WADA testing and it was swept under the rug. Thus the reason I have my reservations about ... more »

This is so dumb. Rec drugs are the team's business, not the AMA's. Alcohol is a rec drug last time I checked. I wonder if the AMA will be banning the beer sales at races. Never mind the hypocrisy & involement of energy drinks. As for illegal PEDs. ... more »

Great post. Lots of truth. But just to play devils advocate, I've seen stock motors that "have no evidence" of porting or replating that are absolutely done up. Factory teams can make cheater motors look OEM, even to the very well trained eye, of which ... more »

Those 6 Days edition bikes are so sweet looking. Especially the newer all white ones with the orange frames. Thx a ton for ur input. Been helpful. I'm considering the Husky FE 501 based on what u have said. I also checked out some other forums...I found ... more »

Thx a ton. That's really good info. The bike I get won't be seeing the highway. So I dont need to go 65+ mph. I'd be going for the Husky FE 450 but they didn't send it to the USA this year. Which I think I've figured out is the same bike as the XC-W ... more »

Haha....I hear ya. I think we all love to obsess over a new bike purchase. Part of the fun I guess.

Ive been going into dealerships for months asking questions. The clown salesmen dont do a good job explaining. I trust my friends here a lot more than a salesman tbh. And I think I do have it narrowed down quite a bit. I've explained what I need the ... more »

Oh, and can anyone tell me what the supermotard conversion requires? And/or what the best knobbie is that is going to see a lot of pavement? Thx.

I wish it were that simple. Here's my best stab at understanding it... SX/SX-F: moto competitive, high performance engine, stiff suspension, linkage, narrow transmission XC/XC-F: enduro competitive, detuned MX engine, linkage, semi-wide transmission? ... more »

Ya, I know its not a fair comparison. But its kinda my baseline for what I'm looking for. I'd get the Honda and call it a day except for the fact that it weighs nearly 100 lbs more than a KTM dual sport. I'm just wondering which KTM is the right bike ... more »
