As a certified Dungey fan, Eli has gone ahead and taken this thing by the throat. If Eli does go on to win (still a big if), Eli flat out beat Dungey where no one else could in the last 2 years. I still believe Dungey can pull this thing out of the fire, ... more »
I learned a valuable lesson about the "vital" role oil plays in a 2 stroke motor. Forgot to put more oil in my TM100 oil tank (it was oil injected) and went out for a good ride as a 12 year old. Man, my bike was running crisp! Until it stopped dead in ... more »
Awesome-FINALLY. I be signing up. Thanks DC and whoever else was involved.
Thanks boys. All good. My wife is a keeper. I came clean and she did love the roses. Honest to Pete, next new bike, I'm going to clear it first!! Now I just have to get out and ride!
I wish I would have seen this ad before I came home with a previously unannounced, not discussed at all, brand new Yamaha YZ250F 2 days ago. I could have used some help with this one. She has yet to acknowledge the roses...maybe because they are yellow, ... more »
Ha, funny story, kind of. I tossed and turned and just did it and brought it home. Not the first time I have done it. I really was going to tell her. She is cool and gets my addiction. She knows it could be much worse of course. I should have included ... more »
I picked up a new 2016 Yamaha YZ250F on a deal too good to pass up. I first rode this bike in August of 2015. A guy I know picked up a new one late in the year and I had a chance to ride it, and it was so freaking good. Had it in the back of my mind

From all that I have seen thus far there is nothing fun or exciting about these bikes. At all. No shifting, no clutch, no sound. 2 or 4 stroke, love em both. But these things, colour me skeptical. Yes, I'm 54. So....piss off!
He would add a tremendous talent to the gate. Hope he can make it!
I would love to hear this one as well. My impression was that Mike Webb stayed supportive of Stewart albeit through gritted teeth. He undoubtably had the toughest job of all the team managers in the paddock. Bet the guy could write a book.
Worst? Easy-1981 CR 125 & CR 250. Terrible bikes. Best? I would change this to favourite. 1978 RM 125-loved it. 1999 Yamaha YZ 400-my first 4 stroke-game changer. 2002 Yamaha YZ250. Great bike. 2003 Yamaha YZ450F-best motor ever.
Reed is full of shit. Everyone knows what he was doing and why is was doing it. Story is over, time to move on.
Have to hand it to Kawasaki for getting to Eli early before other teams threw their buckets of cash at him. The guy is in the best possible bargaining position right now. If Dungey, after Vegas announces his retirement (purely speculation, as is the ... more »

The Dirt Wurx crew, Like Jeff said, has essentially saved this season with all of their work. The track was far better than most thought it was going to be considering all of the rain in the area. What the fuck do some of you people want? Lets some of ... more »
Those Suzuki's are SWEET!!!
Fair enough Harry. I do appreciate the level of discomfort that it takes to become a world champion, which is why I think we can agree and respect the accomplishments of Brad Lackey, Donny Schmidt et al, for taking on the challenge and winning a world ... more »
The riders are awesome and will race whatever is in front of them, but these crap locations and crap tracks need to go. Have fewer events then, but half empty gates in these terrible venues that don't grow the sport at all make no sense to me. The full ... more »
Thank you Berm. Pretty straightforward. Please forward this to Chad Reed. No where does it say "I'm going to be a roadblock for 4 laps for the 2nd place guy after letting the leader by like I'm supposed to according to both the rules and the unwritten ... more »
Fucking Reed-the guy has complained about lappers for 15 years and now he inserts himself into the series for all the wrong reasons. Douche move. No reason for this. Let the top two guys decide it for themselves. 16th place and now he decides to race. ... more »
