Villo2fan, FYI, I retired on Sept 15 2009. 450 were already out as well as EFI, upside down forks and single rear shocks. I'm 39. Not 69. (I'd love to get your thoughts on De Coster then. I doubt he rode a bike in the last couple decades). I rode a dirt ... more »

I had 2 idols growing up... Bradshaw and Healey. Met Mike in 1990 in France when he rode KTM. I was racing the same day on a 80. It's also why I rode number 99 in 1999 because Mike rode with that number in his GP days...

I do have some Axe body spray. Is that bad? Should I stop using it?

In California, you can only buy a car for $75k. In my area, mobile homes are $200k+ haha. Those are the 2 cheapest properties in Murrieta, CA right now... You can charge $1300/1400 a month. Taxes at 1.5%. $1k in insurance & $1500 in HOA. Not a great

Bud, sometimes you don't have a choice. When you have 2 kids, 13 & 11, living in California and you have shared custody, it doesn't feel right to retire in a tax-friendly state...

1. The evidence of me making a rider like Barcia better is 100% sure. I would lay my own money on it. You're so sure I can't help him, show me the money. I'll give you 10K if I can't, give me 30K if I can. The "Vitards" would vote on it, we'd do a referendum. ... more »

Some, the retirement stuff, is invested for growth which is more agressive. Some is invested to get income out of it since I'm retired. It's managed, I don't pick stocks, bond or funds and I'll try to make sure they invest muni bonds to keep taxes down. ... more »

For the "top 1%" or less... This is a ballpark for the big names in 450... Count $2M for bike. $1M for all gear. (in some cases $500-800k for personal energy drink) $100$/ win. $1M/championship... For top 5-8 guys in 450. Divide by 3 or 4 the base salaries. ... more »
