Right out of the gate, I will first admit that I know very ittle about the bulk of the racers. I know who the top few stars are by number and recognize thier names. I don't know much about the tracks except what I learned in the late 80s and early 90s ... more »

Broome Tioga also had a concrete pad. Although I'm not a huge fan of them, I think they should have one at LL simply for maintenance reasons.

And there has to be a way to do it. Crotch rockets have full flarings and don't seem to have problms... that said, they also have more sponsors in their sport.

That's the point. If we want the big $$$ from outside sponsors, then the industry is going to have to give a little. Do we really need side number plates? They have a front plate and a transponder. Use that space for advertising. Allow freedom of color ... more »
Added reply in a thread who could beat RC when the GOAT was at the TOP 4/20/2014 8:06 PM
Way back when RC was just getting started on 60's, his mom told me and my parents that their only goal was to beat Brock Sellards. Well, they did that running away. RC was untouchable until he met up against Shae Bentley and Matt Walker. Those guys always ... more »

Do you think the lack of those companies sponsoring may have anything to do with the factorys requiring the use of their colors for parts, contengency, etc? Pepsi could sponsor a team but might want blue bikes... cue Yamaha. But then they want to run ... more »

We've got Red Bull KTM, Monster Kawasaki, Geico Honda, Rockstar KTM... you could throw in JGR Yamaha as well. As the sport continues to grow, I think it would be nice to see more outside industry teams form like what you see in Indy Car and the like. ... more »

2 things... First, when RC and I used to practice in Monticello, FL together, we'd always spend about 15 minutes running about 75% and doing the spot/block turns. It often became a contest of balance to see who could hold out the longest. Second, Ron ... more »

Growing up in district 5 I was always on the fance to watch Mike Jones, Steve Crowe, and Steve Childress. Allso looked up to Shane Lawson and Davey Yezek (they were only a few years older). But the greatest I ever saw was the one and only Mitchell Kumpstein. ... more »

It seems like the only person who can straight up beat JS7 is JS7. I would say the strategy of staying on 2 wheels, getting a good start, and finishing a consistent top 5 when you don't win works pretty well for RV.

I always wore one. The Fox Rost 2 was great. When I switched to the AXO Pentagon, I broke my collarbone 4 times. Different models offer different levels of protection. The ones with raiser, shoulder cups like the Fox and HRP are better for shoulder protection ... more »

Added reply in a thread PC Bogging Issues 3/12/2014 5:23 PM
I have no idea what's going on with the PC bikes. But it reminds me of the 89 RM 80's. We had issues with the stators going out and it would cause the bikes to do something very similar. Ended up that the plastic covers on the side of the motor were ... more »

I think on the RM 80, the biggest change was the move away from that stupid flared out radiator shroud. That thing was horrible. We used to hook those heavy duty rubber straps to the holes and then around the bike to fold it in as much as possible and ... more »

That Tedesco thing was crazy! Had a similar thing happen to me at the Mini-O's one year on 80's. Went into the first turn about 4th and I was on the far inside, got nailed from behind and highsided or something. Somehow ended up with my leg down between ... more »
