I'm trying to keep an eye out for any Arai MXC-Pro, or even an older MX-Pro helmet. These are the ones with the cool removable chin. Open face helmets tend to work best when working in the woods at the GNCC races, which is exactly what I'd be doing with ... more »

There's actually 1 or 2 street helmets that actually use the same pads. Not to kill the whole "buy local" thing but I've ordered a little bit from these guys... http://www.theservicepavilion.com/store/c122/Interior_Padding.html There's places where you ... more »

A few years ago at the Little Brown Jug Enduro in SC I blew out 2 fork seals, was riding like a goon and just wasn't feeling it. Had an emergency $20 stashed in the bag tied to my gas can, because, well I don't know why. Got to the gas stop and told ... more »

Brushy is actually all on privately owned land. Not sure how muc acerage they have, but it's a lot. Brown Mountain in Morganton is all public land though.

If you're on an XC and want to ride woods, you could give Brushy Mountain in Taylorsville a shot. They do have a motocross track too. In the past it's been pretty easy, but they were revamping it a bit last I knew. If you're sticking to moto, I'd also ... more »

I've always been a fan of Arai but could never really afford one. I finally ended up getting one and absolutely love it. I've also got a vintage MX-Pro that was barely worn, still in amazing shape and even feels great (Disclaimer: I have NOT worn it ... more »

Definitely want to check this out. I've seen a lot of Lee's stuff, seen a good bit in person too and it always looks top-notch. I'm definitely a big custom paint fan. I've only ever had 1 done, but I've recently sent another one out to a Mark Koch in ... more »

The print on the boxes is blurry but 2nd box down on the far left looks like it's in correct orientation to me. Looks like it says "Style" with a white space next to it to write in, "Color" with the same white space, so the Monster logos are likely backwards. ... more »

I know I'm late to the party here but your best option is definitely KR4 as their program is designed exactly for folks like you. I think you'll really enjoy the races as they all offer up a little something for everyone. If you have any questions or ... more »

I've gotten to know Eddie and Jessica the past few years and they're definitely both awesome. Jessica came and raced a GP race I promote at Zoo City MX in North Carolina to get some "heat training" before Loretta's. The track owner got the local news

That'd be awesome! Even working for 3 weeks straight, I have a blast at Loretta's and would be pumped to see ol TB on track. Need to try to talk him into giving the new GNCC at Camp Coker a shot. I definitely want to try to incorporate the old moto track ... more »

All great answers as I've stayed at, or at least been in all the ones mentioned. A couple of years ago I got The Ellis on Peachtree for a good price. It was really nice and really close to all the main restaurants and stuff everyone likes to go to afterwards. ... more »

I'd like to see that. I talked to Andy a good bit in 2014 when he was managing the Husky off-road team for the GNCC and National Enduros. I work all the GNCCs but the first part of that year I was also working at RidePG during the week and the Husky ... more »

It's my understanding that Kevin Powell, who's logo is predominately located on his shroud, is considered to be "crazy" with his crazy credit approval.

Been to Greensboro many times over the years and I'd have to say the easiest thing in my opinion is to come in from Freeman Mill Rd onto Coliseum Blvd. Depending on which way you come from, you'd basically end up on Freeman Mill from the south, off I-85 ... more »

In office I type fancy word sentences for websites. Outside office I ride around in the woods and staple arrows on trees. I also sell propane and propane accessories.
