Those are too perfect, someone had to program that into a CNC machine. I've a lot of crazy stuff like these swirl head designs.

I'm leaning towards EX02, it has a 10% oxygen content.

The last time I raced Glenn Helen was in '02, back then you got a bit of a run at the hills. Now you drop down each hill and 180 at the bottom to come right back up. The rain Friday made the corners very soft and deep so it was a non stop fight to get ... more »

Added reply in a thread Renthal twinwall cross bar 5/26/2015 7:30 PM

I recently rode a bike with cut twinwalls back to back with my protapers and they still made my hands go numb 10-12 minutes in. When I swapped them out with my Pro Tapers I could do 20+ minutes with no tingling in the hands. I've been Pro Taper loyal ... more »

I've never looked into vending at Mammoth, but with my twins being 3, I may only be able to squeak out a 3 day vet weekend. I will report back on project Daddy Daycare Vacation!

I'm thinking I'm going to try and make room in my schedule.

I saw you working by the tower when I was walking the track during the first practices. I was heading your way and ran in to Tallon and his son Max, by the time I finished talking to them you were gone and I never found time to track you down. I was ... more »

Yes ma'am, It's a '00/'03/'06 Frankenbike! (Edit: What YZ said^^^)

Transworld got a shot of The boss and I laughing at the Vitards just before the start while Timmy Badour ham's it up. Oh wait, I'm a Vitar.......

Being that we (the 2-strokes) were the sideshow and it had nothing to do with MX Sports/AMA, I wasn't expecting VIP treatment. I can only assume that the tragic murder of Lori's son 3 weeks ago threw a wrench into the program as she was the one organizing

Yes that was Brownie. I spoke to him briefly after the race and he said he blew out 4-5 spokes over jumping the triple about mid race. I didn't know that was Tucker, but a Suzuki was laid out after the triple on the 3rd lap of practice when I was going ... more »

Added reply in a thread Can a mechanic prep in front of the gate? 5/24/2015 8:11 PM

You can reach over the gate to do prep, you just can't step over. I use to do it all the time. Like was said earlier, if anything is out of reach like a big rock, you'd have to flag down an official and ask them to remove it.

FYI, I think Jeff Alessi should've lined up on a smoker for that race...

If I could do it over, the suspension needed to be much stiffer. It worked fine at the few NorCal tracks I practiced on in the last week and a half, they don't get very rough. With the size of the bumps and how steep the hills were, I felt like my suspension ... more »

Well I had fun, and did and did about how I expected for being 42 and coming off the couch 3 weeks ago. I had hoped to be a little more competitive speed wise, but bike set up and lack of conditioning put me mid pack after my first 3 lap sprint. I was ... more »
