Texans blame secret military takeover for Walmart closings, secret tunnels I think those are the same Texans that will blame tornados for gay marriage.

Added reply in a thread My position on capital punishment just changed 4/27/2015 10:27 AM

My desire for revenge is tempered by my pragmatism when it comes to capital punishment. For some who wind up on death row, it's a place they want to be. They'll get their name in the news and their day in the sun again. I'd rather just see them get a ... more »

Added reply in a thread GET users only ones running closed loop? 4/23/2015 3:34 PM

Sounds like a great system but more than a little overboard for the average guy's race weekend. It sounds like it would be enough work to take all the fun out of a weekend of racing.

I know the crew that handled flagging for our road racing club was invited to Laguna Seca and had their travel expenses and accommodations picked up to help with the flagging at the MotoGP races there years ago. They were by far and away the most professional ... more »

Added reply in a thread Unpaid 73 year old OKIE Deputy shoots suspect. 4/14/2015 2:45 PM

It's clearly obvious that a misdemeanor offense combined with an attempt to run from the police is now grounds for immediate execution. It will make no difference if you have already been subdued and are face down on the concrete with your hands cuffed ... more »

Kansas is on the verge of passing a law that would limit how recipients of welfare could spend state assistance. The bill would exclude visits to swimming pools or the purchase of alcohol and tobacco. The bill would also limit daily ATM withdrawals. ... more »

Good luck with your vacation begging. $30K for a month long trip to Thailand would be a sweet trip indeed.

Added reply in a thread MXGP Racing- Respect!! 3/29/2015 8:23 PM

There is prize money, but it's like MotoGP and it's distributed to the teams instead of given only to the riders. Whether or not the team gives any of it to the rider is up them. The riders all have their own deals with their respective teams and outside ... more »

It didn't have much impact on the brakes per se, but as the swingarm moved upwards the rear wheel would rotate forward slightly to help it through the tops of braking bumps. It's an awful lot of added sprung weight for very little benefit IMO.

It never ceases to amaze me how those old Honda factory machines could have so much technology. Even with the ribi-lever front end and then still use drum brakes.

With all these engineless four stroke frames to steal modern parts from and cheap 2-strokes on the used market, anybody who can figure out the business end of a wrench are building their own bikes. The four stroke revolution, while creating a bike that's ... more »

Here's another cool little system for rear suspension. The idea was to help remove the effects of chain torque on the rear suspension to allow the bikes to track better through acceleration bumps. You'll have to download the PDF file to read it. Link to PDF ... more »

Thank you! Not being able to remember the name was driving me crazy. Please do scan the article and post it up. It would be extremely relevant to this thread.

There was an article in MXA back in the day about a new style of motocross suspension that ran a ton of sag and sat very low in the stroke. They said it was like driving over a log if you ran over a garden hose at a slow speed in the pits, but on the ... more »
