And those people would be idiots too lazy to go find jobs. ANY, and I mean ANY able bodied male was able to get a 6 figure job in oilfield up until 6 months ago at anytime in the last 5 years. All you had to do was get out of your comfort zone and move ... more »

Your statement implies that once you are 'hooked' due to long term use, that you somehow are unable to still quit. Like once your body gets hooked, it's just impossible to suffer any withdrawal symtoms. 2 of my biggies: I crashed a streetbike at about ... more »

Due to some pretty large injuries in my life, I have been physically addicted many times but with absolutely no mental addiction at all. Who would want to live like that? Hell, I'm too cheap to do drugs! I won't even buy myself a soda or tea when I eat ... more »

They were laughing at a photo taken from a funny angle that could easily be misinterpreted to have sexual innuendo. At least that's how I take it. No one is laughing at the kid's disability and if it was just a photo of the kid alone, there would have ... more »

Pretty sure I saw this cutie at CR about 3 years ago with her whole riding family. Best of luck too her.

Going off memory here, the old facility was for sale for like 1.5 million for years and Ian bought it for maybe 400K-600K? Pretty sure that is correct. He has made some upgrades for sure but it's still in the middle of nowhere. That area was in the middle ... more »

Disabled people are no laughing matter. That said, no one is laughing at that young man's disability.

This sums it up the best. Vague website that had generic scheduling, that couldn't be counted on with weather changes and what not.
Added reply in a thread How many of you road or mtn bike for training? 7/23/2015 9:13 AM
Same as many others. Bought a MTB to train for MX but the sheer ease of participation and lower cost (not to mention comparative safety) of MTBing has left me more a MTBer than an MXer these days. The cool thing is that if you MX, you already have some ... more »
Added reply in a thread Why can't Women go as fast as men? 7/23/2015 9:07 AM
On a full size MX bike, women always appear to not have the core strength to handle an MX bike. All of them, even the fast ones. When I see women riding I always think that they would be faster on a KTM 105SX. Something light. Instead they are riding ... more »

That's an amazing track. Someone bought it a few years back and first prices went up, a lot with memberships and what not. He put a lot of money in to it however. Then you simply could not figure out if they were open. The hotline, their FB page, their ... more »

No. But the good news is that in this country you could put the same dedication and effort into real estate, a business degree, and many other things, and become a millionaire quite easily. Choose wisely.

I think Herlings is just the kind of kid that throws out some respect to his elders. Just like he did towards Bubba a couple of weeks back.

The genetic differences between the sexes are enough to make a difference in all physically and mentally demanding sports. There is no sport where the top women can outperform the top men. Not even in the women dominated fields like ballet/ gymnastics. ... more »

How many OEM parts do you people buy? Rims/ tires/ top ends/ plastics/ drivetrains/ graphics/ levers/ clutches/ brakes/ etc... are all aftermarket parts anyways.
Added reply in a thread Sad state of moto? 6/30/2015 8:41 AM
I Love MX but it's a sincere PITA. I rode at a great track on Sunday. I spent about $1K in the last month on gear (neck brace/ new boots/ new expansion chamber). I then drove 50 miles each way to the track. Probably did 90 minutes on the track. Burned ... more »

Today at Red Rocks MX (a private track that ET3 considers to be his fave) there was a brand spanking new KX500AF. Dude was riding it proper too. This is a deep sandy track where you will take as much hp as you can get.

I walked in to my local and favorite KTM Dealer, TJs, and they had my size and preferred color in stock of the Tech 7s so I bought them on the spot. The boots are by far and away the most comfortable and lightest/ slimmest boots I have ever used. The ... more »
