Another question! I know you used to wear a neck brace and you don't anymore. Any reason why? Are you a believer???

Blake, Do you have a favorite brand of bike you've ridden so far or are they all quite good at your level? I'd think if there were any traits with a bike that were a bit undesirable, that they'd be able to fix most of them at the factory level. Is this ... more »

I've ridden the 18 Honda. It's a great bike, turns amazing, feels easy to ride, etc. You can't go wrong with that bike IMO.

Watch the New Jersey 450 main this year. Eli Tomac goes down - has to kick his bike in a very awkward spot on the track for way too long before he gets it started and gets going again. Also note Jason Anderson's crash in the same race. Picks his bike ... more »

Judging by the KX already being the lightest Jap bike and people generally not liking the fork, I'd think they'd be pretty inclined to ditch the air fork unless they can develop something more like the KTM's.

Will the '19 KX have a spring fork?

I went Flo Green on my 16, but not sure about the older models...I wanted the extra pop!

I had my forks on my 16 KX 450 revalved by FC and my pressures are way down from stock. I think close to yours (something like 140s or 150s for inner chamber and I think around 203 outer (it's winter and I'm not riding right now

I always find these shootouts very interesting to read as opinions vary so widely, but certain bikes get pretty consistent positive reviews. One thing I think would be interesting though is what bike would you really buy with your own money considering the mods you will likely do anyway. Things like bars don't mean that much as I almost always change them anyway, so knocking a bike for that doesn't really mean much. And a lot of people put a pipe on to add some power and better looks. Anyway, I think it would be interesting if there was one list for how they'd rate them in purely stock form, then another list for which one they'd personally want to buy considering cost, mods they'd do anyway, reliability, etc, as those are factors that also come into play.

My prediction: 1/2 - KTM/Husqy (it's tough to separate these two, but more than anything KTM #1 - hard to say on the Husqy) 3/4 - Honda/Kawasaki (I don't think the Honda beats the KTM) 5 - Yamaha (the Yamaha is getting a bit dated in some ways even though

I used to win motocross races in the 90s in the 125 intermediate class at 6'3" 185lbs approx. I never felt like I was at a disadvantage because of my size.

Sick! I love watching Tomac ride because he does stuff like this that no one else does. He was tripling through the rhythm section at the NYC supercross and I don't think anyone else was. Was fun to watch...
