Reply to Hanging up the boots... 8/22/2016 5:42 PM

I only made one race last year as our local track closed and I'm just not that into the travel commitment now that I'm 59. Though I do think its mostly the lack of track time that keeps me from traveling and competing. Now I'm down to a 919 street bike, ... more »

Awesome! you never know what can come of it... I took Todd Brown to his first Motocross race he participated in and now he's been on the National and SX tour for 20+ years. After MMI his wrenching began with Ping and Sellard's and now is the master suspension ... more »

This is a damn good read right here...just need to organise and maybe drop a line in here and there from DB's teammates and wrestle up a villain... if you can find one.

It seems to work for him, Hell in a matter of 10 minutes he was back up to 2nd! Perhaps he uses the moment to calm himself, bring his heart rate back in check and then climb on and run them all back down with an end of the moto push.

The series needs this track, I'm also sure engine & suspension builders along with Physical Therapist get their extra hours in

Huge bummer for sure, and hopefully that wrist brace also did it's job on the impact. Hard to imagine all that velcro getting ripped loose and flying off. But maybe it has a simpler fasten method?

KRoc playing it cool. Doesn't want to hang it out with ET, only problem is MM's coming. Might blow that overall, yet still stellar for the big prize.

Reply to Anybody moto with a partial wrist fusion? 7/8/2016 6:45 PM

I've had my scaphoid bone and several others pinned along with tendon reattachment in my left wrist. It was a full year to get back to 80% movement along with strength ...and through much PT. But now as I approach 45 years in the meat business where ... more »

Yamaha could have saved a butt load of development and have just thrown on a tuning fork in place of that S on the shroud.
