Forgive my ignorance. I know there is a production rule in the US series, is there one for MXGP? How similar is the equipment? I seem to remember back in 1987 that Hannah rode a very works level 125 at the MXDN held at Unadilla (not that it mattered ... more »
Added reply in a thread The future of Factory Editions 3/17/2015 6:14 PM
Part of me likes the idea of being able to buy a "factory" bike. But let''s be honest, we aren't buying the same bike Dungey is racing, we're buying a stripped down version that has some features the standard bike doesn't have. Why? Because the developmental ... more »
Added reply in a thread RV's America Helmet 3/16/2015 5:15 PM
Helmet is okay but the design isn't anywhere as cool as the custom helmets of the late 80's and 90's IMO. I get the Monster/Redbull/Whatever thing but I really do miss the true customs without them being giant billboards. These guys wear the logos everywhere, ... more »

I remember Tommy Martin ripping around Hillbilly Hills on an XR 650 back when his family owned the track. I was on 80's at the time, either 13 or 14 years old. Watching him on that thing was unreal. My dad let take his KDX 200 out on the practoce track ... more »

Depending on where you are driving in from, your best bet is to ride MARTA in and out. Traffic leaving the Dome after ANY event is horrible. I suggest checking out the MARTA website and locating a station on your way in. Easy, safe parking and you can ... more »

What about Buddy Antunez? He never quite got that #1 spot in MX or SX and I really expected more from him. Another argument could be made for Damon Bradshaw. I know he won the 125E title in 1989 but with all the hype surrounding him, you would have thought ... more »

It changes to match the color of your powerband. Be glad you got blue and not pink.

I guess I'll be the guy who steps up and admits I didn't notice a difference in his wheels. Guess I'm just not that cool.

I wonder if the design is "dialed back" to suit the amateur racing? I mean, I know they can and will still dumb it down some, but could that have influenced the design?

Broke my talus in 1992 at a LL qualifier at Steel City when my left foot slipped off the peg landing from a jump. No crash. Some of the worst pain I have ever felt. Finished the race and rode 2 hours to Morgantown with my foot in a cooler. Then, a few ... more »

I appreciate the responses. I'm not looking for excuses for the US getting beat. I'm simply trying to understand what differences exist. Reed mentioning that the FIM fuel makes the bikes slower is interesting. I wonder what the curve is to learn the ... more »
Added reply in a thread RYAN VILLOPOTO CONFIRMED FOR 2015?? 9/7/2014 5:49 PM
Will be interesting to see for sure. One thing I'm interested in is how much different are the GP bikes from the US bikes? Are the GP bikes more "works"? And if that's the case, how much better will his GP bike be than his US bike? And then... will he ... more »
Added reply in a thread Looking for dirty riding on the track stories 9/4/2014 6:49 PM
At the mini-o's one year, I pulled the holeshot in the 85 12-13 class in the TT event. Had Maximoff, Windham, Reynard all behind me. Maximoff got by me on lap 2, quickly followed by Windham and Reynard on lap 3. I was riding really well, keeping those ... more »

Is Durham out at PC? If yes, that's a damn shame. He never got to see his full potential because of the injuries.

Suprised nobody mentioned or showed a pic of Mickey Dymond and his hand cut 6's when he went to Yamaha. Personally, I also dislike the careear number thing but I also understand it's purpose and place in the sport. If Kroc were to change, I think 9 would ... more »
