Pieck is retiring and going to his original dream, Broadway.

Alessi maybe?

Please let Indiana or Red Bud get a GP

Reply to One of my songs. 9/11/2016 6:02 AM

The snare was a bit hot for me, but then again I'm listening through cell phone speakers, haha. I dug the droney/lounge vibe to it, definitely chill but still a little edgy drinking music. My band is working on our 2nd album right now, so hopefully I'll ... more »

It sounds like you'd be a step above the crew foreman in my line of work, more like a superintendent, around $30/hr

If my work schedule and plane ticket prices work out, I may make the trip. I thought Webb was racing 450 though, kind of a bummer if he isn't.

Reply to Why is Anderson so often overlooked? 8/26/2016 3:28 AM

I think both Anderson and Seely are just one little tick away from being title contenders. Anderson needs more consistent starts, and Seely needs to be a little more consistent in speed. I think Seely could be Dungey lite, not always winning, but always ... more »

Reply to Steel frame stretch a real concern? 8/26/2016 3:20 AM

I would almost think that factory teams would replace steel frames often just for the sake of settings, if there is a "break in period" on steel frames where they know exactly how it reacts and based their settings off of it, that they would replace ... more »

Reply to What makes "A-Kit" suspension so good? 8/22/2016 5:51 PM

I'm well aware of how Kawis handle compared to that genration of Hondas, but I'm confused if you think the other bike I rode was a Kawasaki? Either way, I've ridden other CR250s of the same generation and none held a candle (to my preferences at least) ... more »

Reply to What makes "A-Kit" suspension so good? 8/21/2016 5:47 PM

My bike is a 2010 CRF450 with Enzo revalved/resprung suspension. I was very happy with it, still felt plush and had great bottoming resistance. The bike with A kit was a 2007 CR250 2 stroke. The biggest difference I could feel was through heavy chop ... more »

Reply to Sell me on the idea of a SX 250 class as a Spectator? 8/21/2016 7:06 AM

It's more exciting with a whole different class to win. Would you rather watch Zach Osborne make a pass for 12th in the combined race, where really you'd just be watching the leaders, or watch him battle tooth and nail, leaving it all out there for a ... more »

Reply to What makes "A-Kit" suspension so good? 8/21/2016 5:46 AM

All I know is, the one time I got to ride on Pro Circuit A-kit, it was unbelievable. I thought my Enzo was good, but I could barely feel any if the bumps on the very rough track. It almost felt too soft at first, but I couldn't get it to bottom either. ... more »

Reply to Vital MX Forum QNA: Christophe Pourcel 8/17/2016 6:36 PM

Not a question, but I remember seeing you cruise around in practice at the St. Louis SX one year on the 250, rolling around, barely stringing a section together, then you finally put on a heater, and hit this 90 degree right hand corner after a triple ... more »

Reply to It's a Major Award, I Won It!!! 8/17/2016 5:34 PM

I've been semi retired for a couple years now, and there was a T-shirt up for grabs the whole time? I feel robbed.

Reply to Outdoors vs Indoors attendance 8/15/2016 2:55 PM

Haven't gone to SX in about 4 years, but have gone to the Ironman National the past 2 years and the Glen Helen GP, and would have gone to Red Bud too if I were free those weekends. I can watch SX live in my living room, and even though you can't see ... more »

Reply to A lot of Vital folks are going to hate this post 8/15/2016 2:51 PM

Not ripping the track won't make it smooth, just a different kind of rough. I've found with working on my own track that sections I leave grass on get rougher, because the tires are fighting against clumps/roots rather than just loam. There's still ruts ... more »

Reply to What do you think of a 22-race Supercross season? 8/15/2016 2:41 PM

I think it would kill the sport. Like everyone else said, local tracks would become more like SX, driving injuries higher, and more people quitting and riding in the woods instead

Reply to Will Tomac have a chance in charolette or Glen Helen ? 8/14/2016 8:36 PM

The GP guys have had what, 4 years at Glen Helen now? They should be starting to catch on. That being said, with how Tomac had been riding, I wouldn't guarantee him a win.

Reply to How long do you keep your air filters? 8/14/2016 11:16 AM

If it looks fine, it's probably fine. As long as it comes clean and the seams stay together, they don't expire like milk.
