Added reply in a thread What do you think of a 22-race Supercross season? 8/15/2016 9:12 AM

SX is already too long. The entire season is too long. 22 SX races is BS, especially for the riders and it just becomes boring after a while (and the whole "Race for the Championship" idea where they reset the points is just lame). Ideally I would like ... more »

Added reply in a thread Can someone interview Cole Seely today and ask him how the '17 CRF450 rides?! 8/11/2016 7:58 AM

Great idea. I've always found that the most honest commentary on bike performance comes from those employed by the brand in question.

Killer, and great job matching it with some quality shots too.

Added reply in a thread Ping on air forks and 125's 8/10/2016 8:03 AM

It's true Joe, 4-strokes are waaaay easier to ride because of that. But 125's and 144's are far more fun, mainly because even if you don't look like a hero, you sound and feel like one. If you have the option, keep your 4-stroke and pick up a small-bore ... more »

Great job ge217! I crashed in the same EXACT spot in the first Vet 30 Plus moto back in 2010!!! Haha. Opening laps too, although I think it was the third lap for me and not the first. Awesome recovery man coming back through the pack...I definitely DID ... more »

I was looking for closeups of those bikes. They were awesome!

Hmm, maybe Baggett could get on the 350... I think could do very well on that bike outdoors.

Added reply in a thread Any 200 pounder + 7/14/2016 9:03 AM

That's 200+ pounds of fury right there! Haha.

With gear on I'm well over 200lbs. As far as racing a 125 goes...well, good luck (although I'm planning to do just that at Englishtown next weekend!), but the fun factor is through the roof. I actually ... more »

Any 125 National from 2004. Bubbles absolutely destroying the field (of 250fs) on his 125. Beauty in motion.

Wow. That's 10 model years of the same bike. I think that's a first among the major OEMs, keeping the same basic design of a bike for a decade. Below is the 2008 RM-Z450!

Added reply in a thread Which road bike for Cross-training? 6/1/2016 5:28 PM

But pretty much true. If it's your first road bike, don't get all serious and feel the need to spend thousands. My first real road bike was a 1987 Bianchi Sport SX. Steel frame, down tube shifter, etc. Got it on craigslist for $285. It's ... more »
Added reply in a thread A. Martin and the MXGP series. 5/31/2016 8:20 AM

Why does Davalos get bagged on for riding 250s? Mostly because he has somehow managed to have a factory or factory supported ride since turning pro in 2006 (yes, 10 years ago) yet he has only managed to win four regional SX races in that time span. Alex ... more »

Added reply in a thread Adam C Riding Style 5/21/2016 11:41 AM

Well, Cianciarulo looks about a foot taller than when he turned pro, so that will affect some things. There aren't too many DV's out there at the moment although Musquin probably comes the closest (not because he's French, but just in the way he moves ... more »

Added reply in a thread Anyone sold their 450 and gone back to a 125? 4/28/2016 11:25 AM

Yes. Although I have had the privilege of riding plenty of other machines, as far as bikes I actually own I actually did exactly that: went from owning a KX450F to a YZ125 which is now a 144. If I could I would also have a 250F in the garage because ... more »

I am equally intrigued by both E-bikes and people's resistance to them. Whether or not you like them, electric vehicles (of all kinds) are the future. MXers were resistant to four-strokes at first, thinking that the then large and heavy machines would ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2005 YZ125 suspension question 4/18/2016 10:12 AM

I also have a 2005 YZ125. There's a reason Yamaha only kept that fork for one was horrible, which I discovered after getting my bike. I eventually found some 2008 forks off of a YZ250F and threw those on. I got the entire front end setup (forks, ... more »

Added reply in a thread 125 wide open video 4/15/2016 5:49 PM

That might be the biggest compliment a rider could ever receive. 1) The vid is not sped up. 2) This makes you appreciate how scary-fast pro speed is...and he's on a 125!
