Harder. You have to work to make a 125 go fast. Especially if you ride in a lot of soft conditions. With that said, you can believe how much easier it is to skip over bumps, and it teaches you how to corner by using momentum and correct line choice, ... more »

More midrange, hits harder in the middle, carries into the overrev. Little easier to ride (emphasis compared to a 125, not a 250F), and new motors lighter and a little smoother. Some actually prefer the 125, since they seem a little more traditional ... more »

My dad has an older grey market ATwin, and he's wanting to get a new one. I've seen 2 people ride the new ATwin like it's a dirt bike, even in deep sand. They are not as flashy or powerful as 1190R, but seem to get the job done and as usual, has that ... more »

Red Bull paying riders to come, so at least at the end it's no out of pocket for them. And, it's a fun race. Be fun to watch.

Added reply in a thread HRC Honda releases statement on Cole Seely's Shock Failure at MXoN 10/4/2017 1:01 PM

I don't think a factory effort is willing to put a "hack fix" when a rider's safety is at hand. Not to mention, the shock is manufactured by KYB, they put it on, not make the parts. Also remember, they had less than about an hour to turn it around. That's ... more »

Like the "by the way, the other company shock didn't fail" portion of the release. Subtle jab at KYB?

I will go for the party, that's for sure. Just a shame we (possibly) again may not have our top riders for the race. For those small percentage of us that do follow the GPs, it will be a great experience. May even ride the big bike just to make a real ... more »

Added reply in a thread Tips for training when you aren't able to ride? 9/26/2017 2:29 PM

Core workouts, rower, bicycle. Some combo of those 5 days a week and also incorporate in some stretching in the morning will help immensely. Being more limber helps with injuries/soreness and you'll see a difference when you have to get technical with ... more »

I believe he said in a tweet he did talk to/have a conversation with his wife to verify parts or at least share the results. It got me a bit choked up with Bobby Moore talking about the talks he had with Donny. Unbelievable talent that just knew his ... more »

Added reply in a thread Jeremy Martin Signs Two-Year Contract Extension with GEICO Honda 9/22/2017 6:47 PM

Lack of 250SX title is a big thing eating away at him and his future as 450 rider; you can't be a factory rider if you're just "meh" at SX. And, in 2017, couldn't have been much worse. He's now got the newest bike in the pits, and pretty much most advanced ... more »

Added reply in a thread Latest Rumor/Fact: No Suzuki Factory Team in MXGP and MX2 for 2018 9/22/2017 5:11 PM

All about $$$ and return on investment. Remember, Kawasaki and Suzuki participated in MotoGP, they both left around the same time period. Suzuki waited several years to re-enter, Kawasaki still sitting on the sidelines looking on, only investing $ into ... more »

Added reply in a thread After Keefer's 1st 450 shootout day they seem to think the RMZ rear shock is ok per his podcast. 9/20/2017 11:20 AM

To be fair, I ride a Yamaha with the KYB SSS and have dealt with the same sensation of the front wanting to "climb out" out of the rut or get that "pointy " feeling. I'm not sure if it's a chassis flaw on Yamaha's part or just a nature of those forks. ... more »

Still day 1...see what happens after 2 more test days. Johnson said track was probably "too smooth" to really test suspension, just a lot of small chop. Interesting all the different opinions on KTM/Husky/Yamaha. Definitely an acquired taste. Also everyone ... more »

ML512 did a really great job describing his pros and cons to each bike, especially the cons with suspension setup and what the "feeling" is. I also enjoy how each review touched on where the bikes did best/struggled in certain track conditions. Living ... more »

Cool to see some implementation coming. Just like anything else now, you could practically create a social network/massive data base of settings people ran for particular tracks and conditions. I would also think more data to give feedback to an OEM ... more »
