Thanks Matt, I knew it was from around that time, but those old mags got tossed long ago :-(

Wasn't that the same year MXA took the big 495 out to the salt flats and ran it well over 100 MPH? Those big beasts were never that fast again.

Pro-Circuit doesn't have enough lawyers on staff to try and sell their own motorcycles.

How much power do you direct away from the wheels to drive the generator necessary to run a system like that? It'll take a lot of juice to have an electromagnetic shock rebound quick enough to hammer some whoops, never mind absorb the impact of say Larocco's ... more »

Thanks for your answers Gabriel. It gives me a little insight into how you came to believe what you do.

Did I question the reasoning behind why you'd want it? There's no question that motocross has to be the toughest test of any suspension system and that an active system is a great advancement. It's just not there yet for an off-road application. I think ... more »

I really don't care to get into a discussion about the semantics of language regarding the term evolution. Nor conditioning. Although I am kind of curious as to how something might "function scientifically"? I also don't care to discuss the theology ... more »

Every system that demands obedience of it's members has the same modus operandi. They tell you you're broken, or physically break you in order to rebuild your beliefs and/or behaviour to better suit their ideals. Christianity uses sin. The Marines use ... more »

There's too many variables like changing track conditions to make such a system feasible with today's technology.

You're mixing up your arguments. You say that man was created in the image of god, yet you back away from the argument that god is innate, and instead say it's spirituality that's innate. If god created man in the image of himself, then your monotheistic ... more »

No, using supernatural explanations to describe the unknown may be innate, but it's no evidence of a creator or creators. Like fear, it's simply a byproduct of the unknown.

If religious beliefs are innate and not learned behaviour, why does geography and family history have such an impact on what a person believes? If you're born in Pakistan, you're most likely destined to be a Muslim. If you're born in America, you're ... more »

I thought this was about MXInsiders shirts. From the old MXinsiders.com board. I won one of those on MotoXDream.com back in the day. It must be a collectors item now.

Big Twin. Probably your standard S&S drop-in crate engine. No specs on the engine beyond approximately 200 HP.

Lotus is sure getting some nice publicity from a concept they neither designed, nor will actually build (in-house). It's nothing more than a custom chopper in some Lotus colours. Nice to look at, but more of a publicity stunt than anything else. Lotus ... more »
