That terrain looks like a LOT more fun than what we have around here. It would also allow me to cover a lot more ground more quickly which would be a plus. The good trails in Austin for the most part are just solid 1"-8" loose rocks and it makes the ... more »

They are easy to mount and tire swaps become a breeze. They are lighter and perform better. They last forever. The warranty service is great. Generally you need to add some Tire Slime and they will never lose air and you will never get a flat again.

When your a kid $500 a month is a lot of money, but in adulthood once you get a decent career going, it's equivalent to going out eating and having drinks with your lady like 3x. Not really a big deal. Oh also, I only ride about 3x per week but I only ... more »

It's not like Honda just happens to have a perfectly dialed in 250F for ET3 to just hop on and go fast on. As fast as Eli is, not racing currenty on a 250F makes him a less than ideal choice for that class. Guys spend all year dialing in those bikes ... more »

I only watch the races on TV but I have noticed that when Roczen was winning his mechanic was all high fiving him etc...when he came off and I don't recall seeing Decoster congradulate him, although it seems like DeCoster did the first race or two. Maybe ... more »

I have an Acerbis foam seat on my Ohlins suspended KTM as that seat is the only one that holds up for me. That seat is quite rock hard. The bike however still feels nice and plush while riding and i never even notice the seat. Installing that seat made ... more »

Moto people as a whole are good folks. But in any large group there are going to be scumbags. Plus you have a certain amount of agressiveness, youthfulness, and inexperience in life that is just common to the track because it's mostly a young man's sport. ... more »

32:1 with Amsoil Dominator. Bottom ends last the lifetime of the bike. The catch is that running the Lectron carb, the bike uses way less fuel, therefore it's getting way less oil too.

A little more time spent not putting people in front of bullets and IUDs for entirely worthless reasons and a little less time worrying about if they drink a Coke or not would be appreciated.
Added reply in a thread What would happen if they let 250 smokers in the 250 class? 7/14/2014 6:39 AM
If the 2 strokes begin to sominate the leader board, instead of letting it go until the class is completely dominated by 2 strokes which is a mistake we have already made with 4 strokes, just apply a peak hp limit on the 2 strokes. Maybe require stock ... more »

Does it feel any different than the old one at all? Heck you didn't even get the clamp offset change because you grabbed the clamps, forks, wheels (different size axle so you had to grab it all) so I don't know if any parts are different at all from ... more »

On the crash, I had a friend recently that had 2 similar crashes where the nose of his KX450 just dove on take off. It turned out it was his transmission popping out of gear only at this specific time. Didn't happen any other times. Just a possibility ... more »

Added reply in a thread Traction Control - Kawasaki 7/2/2014 9:01 AM
It'll work fine in whoops. Why wouldn't it? Riders don't count on massive uncontrolled wheelspin to navigate thru a whoop section. Trimming back hp by 5-10% on a 60 hp dirt bike, is still enough power to spin a free wheeling rear tire believe it or not. ... more »

It appears to me that the Kawasaki or the Suzuki (but with a bit of oversteer) works best on Supercross tracks but that the chromoly frame has some obvious advantages outdoors. Frankly, that same frame design dominates Europe and is now dominating the ... more »
