I need a new pair of boots and was leaning towards the AStar Tech 7s but I know they sort of fell apart on people a few years back. Did AStar fix those issues with the redesign for 2014? Thanks.

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.

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 »

It's okay to react to your fears and just say "I'm old and don't want to jump" but dirt bikes are dangerous and most of the danger is on the ground, not the jumps. You want to scare yourself mentally, do a 90' tabletop that is in reality completely safe. ... more »

I think the Honda, KTM, and now the 2016 Kwak are likely to have a much more similiar feel than they did in years past. I hear the new KTMs feel like modern Hondas with more motor. Anyways, ET3 is hauling ass dude and I'm a HUGE fan and I'm sure he'll ... more »

I have to agree with this man. You are seriousy risking getting a criminal record, probation, or even shot, over an $800 dirt bike. You can't complete transactions in this manner any longer. Now your Dad knows. The dirt bike is gone just like if your ... more »

Added reply in a thread Weigandt: "best riders in the world" getting a little lame. 6/7/2015 5:46 AM
Maybe Weigandt could just say "the best race tracks and MX coverage in the world...." cause the GPs suck bad in this regard. That's why it's a cut rate series. The riders themselves are amazing.
