Rode one for a few years, really enjoyed the open class. Qualified for the last open national at steel city, nothing like lining up with a gate full of 500's at a national.

If my son was a factory rider for Honda I wouldn't be agreeing that 2 strokes need to be given equal status either. Please don't take that as an insult, its not said in that context.

Guy even if they do throw on all the bells and whistles the 2 strokes will still be WAYYYY cheaper to repair and maintain at the local or national level. There is no debating that your going to spend thousands to fix a 4 storke blow up as compared to ... more »

Burn was way out of line, people can discuss without that kind of stuff. I appreciate that DC continues to engage in the conversation. That alone lets me know he is still cares and he shouldn't have to put up with stuff like that or he will move on.

The Japanese Oem's went with it because it meant more profit for them through higher prices and increased parts sales. Also dealers reaped the benefit of people not being able to work on their own equipment thus increasing service profit. The Japanese ... more »

I hope your not on the take and I don't think you are, just to comfortable with things the way they are and the grass roots (heart) of the sport is not growing. Its going backwards because of the price point to participate is getting way to high locally ... more »

I can see how your experiences would really put a lot of pressure on a privateers racing efforts and I'm sure your just scratching the surface. A 2 stroke would alleviate a considerable amount of pressure from the budget I am sure. As a privateer in ... more »

Well I see the answer to that problem, 15 rounds of Sx and 15 rounds of outdoors. I know its never that easy but we can wish.

DC why don't we just add some more dates to the outdoors instead of having the MXoN moved back to mid Sept.

Good call and I am sure its not easy to make, injuries and lack of pay in this sport are a hard thing to overcome even when your as fast as Christian is. I am sure he will be just as successful in his next career!
