Where I live, you usually have to pay somebody to have shit like that taken away.

Best Toronto dirt in history. That's the magic of not letting it suck up the rain and snow and freeze all winter under a highway overpass. Blue tarps... they're everywhere... and they're magic. Well done, T-O SX.

Not exactly crossing lanes into traffic, but RC was cradled by the angels that night. Saw a chick blow through the end of the fastest straight at a local track, blast through a big wooden fence, and launch an ambulance a good 2 1/2 feet from where it ... more »

Yup. Beaton versus Homans. They both lost.

Short-shift and shoot off into the sunset. The myth that kills me is that 2-strokes rev higher than 4-strokes. It was probably your great-grampy who actually believed that. Don't blame him. Obviously, the tachometer hadn't been invented yet. My H2 750 ... more »

This is why running 2-strokes and 4-strokes on the same track at the same time is a non-starter. The sophisticated throttle control of a good 2-T rider with a narrow powerband begs for cornering speed/momentum. The lazy point-n-shoot lines of 4-Ts wreck ... more »

Any engine builder will tell you, it's not what it's got, it's where you put it. If my rider likes to come in really hot and totally shut the throttle at entry to turns, he needs a smooth delivery (transition) from small throttle openings to full throttle. ... more »

Please throw this yellow flag bullshit to the curb. I can see how Villo would be confused by the flagging. The ambulance flag was out, but that turned into a series of yellows. SX rulebook clearly allows overtaking on the yellow.

I really enjoyed the 5 minute commercial for RC cars that replaced the LCQs. I looked up douchebaggery and my dictionary linked to CBS. Some moto is better than no moto, but these infomercials are wearing very thin, very quickly.

I almost believed this would be a break-through. Fact is, even with the complexity of building the right equipment and finding the right rider technique, Joe Six-Pack couldn't relate to this concept. After all, you just sit on a bike and twist the throttle, ... more »
