Reply to 2 Things that Made Me Instantly Faster 11/4/2017 7:24 AM

I'm old, and have delt with spinal arthritis since my early 20's. My kidneys are compromised from years of anti-flammatories but it's allowed me to remain active and competitive with the speedsters in my age bracket every year. Apart from the science, ... more »

Reply to MXA interview with Ryan Dungey 11/4/2017 6:59 AM

RV was most focused on the Dung throughout his 450 career. He viewed RD's intellect, program and commitment to his craft as his greatest road block to race wins, but even more so titles. I'm sure both these guys were the fast fuel driving their own burnout. ... more »

Reply to For those of you who raced this summer..... ( does anyone on Vital actually do that...?? )... 9/6/2017 8:06 AM

Couldn't race. Couldn't ride. Couldn't even finish my xs650 build as my summers was spent rebuilding my rental from foundation to roof. Sucks, its the first year since the 3 years I quit racing after my 78 "pro" debut...I just turned 60 and I'm missing ... more »

Reply to Old School CZ 400 7/17/2017 10:29 AM

Yes it was! Also the site of my first moto in 72 with my Super Rat, which I looped out Jumpin over the 3rd turn on the oval, chasing race winner Leach? on a Green Streak and on that last lap. The first of many endos that led to my screen name (also note ... more »

Reply to Easily the best music video involving dirt bikes 4/28/2017 3:56 PM

HEAR! HEAR!....and was the Original moto music video! I've voiced this in past posts, WWoS & CCR totally lit me up as a young buck to how awesome this sport is... just wish someone could produce that segment for another visit... and to set these ... more »

Reply to My nostalgic love of 2 strokes ended yesterday :( 4/16/2017 7:19 AM

Turning 60 in 2 months and I can honestly say the same. Although unlike Jeffro the 125 makes me feel my age in short order....I can moto and single track my tractors twice as long, and it's a complete different mind set to letting the bike do more of ... more »

Reply to Reed/Dungey Discussion VIDEO: Responding to Vitards Comments 4/4/2017 9:45 AM

Agreed Excellent video and insight for those lacking... Throwing the Black flag was warranted, however that's a tough decision in the final laps. There are a lot of variables and riders to cover and Reed obviously held "his" line so nothing blatantly ... more »

Yep, there's a lot to dig into the dirt when you're known as Tumblin.

Reply to Riding after Traumatic Brain Injury 3/30/2017 9:35 AM

From an Old Fart that also has a moto addiction... take some time away. You need some rehab, I did the same after chasing Pro dreams... and chased me some split tail. You have lots of time, you'll be back. The good thing about it is the money you save ... more »

Reply to Wrist injury 2/13/2017 7:00 PM

Always interesting to speculate but seriously you need to see an Orthopedic specialist to narrow it down. After a trip over the bars I had three tendons pull loose from their anchors from wrist. Everything still worked, it was just sore and I couldn't ... more »

I really enjoy Justin Hills approach; honest straight talking interviews, respectful to competitors and gracious for the support family and team. Justin has always been a fun loving dirt biker that may well impact the premier class with championship ... more »

Meat Glue, red slim...oh boy...well binder is at the core of any good burger. Building a patty out of 93% lean Sirloin is going to crumble through your grill on that first flip. I prefer 85% lean, though many enjoy the flavor of an 80% and endure the ... more »

Reply to Roczen surgery #3 (VERY GRAPHIC, be warned...) 1/27/2017 9:08 AM

BRUTAL! I part out animals for a living and always thought with my knowledge of mechanics and muscle composition I could play doctor for tumor removal, plugging holes or plating breaks when this Civil War breaks out. However when a highly paid athlete ... more »

People, People, People! Don't waste a Rib Eye grinding them up and good luck purchasing Short Ribs pulling the bone and justifying the cost to grind them. As for Brisket that flavor profile is certainly not enhanced....save your money, save your time ... more »
