Reply to 1 Foot or 2 Feet Down... 1/13/2015 12:25 PM

Left foot down, right foot on kickstarter is the only way to go unless you've got a button, which then I still recommend kicking it... Oh we're not talking about dead engine starts? My bad.

I'm a semi-professional race car driver and an amateur tattoo artist. Actually, to be honest I'm sitting here typing this reply from inside the Racer Productions/MX Sports/Racer X global international world HQ. I raced growing up and back in 2010 my

Reply to how do you warm up your 250 2 stroke? 12/2/2014 10:25 AM

I usually start by throwing my boots on with my Wranglers and a Def Leppard t-shirt, then I put on the helmet I found in my dad's gear bag from the 80s. I start it with the choke on, then blip the throttle 1 time and jam it into gear right away. It usually ... more »

Reply to 2nd OA on a KTM 150 10/7/2014 6:40 PM

Wattsy also rode and won on every bike that KTM offered that year. 125, 200, 250, 300, 380 (all 2-strokes) However, that was 2000 and Scott Summers was pretty much the only one to race a 4-stroke back then other than when Watts also rode the 400. 250 ... more »

Reply to Unadilla - where to stay? 7/23/2014 7:15 AM

There's more hotel options and food selection in Utica, but Norwich is a bit closer. However, Norwich only has a few options on hotels and not too much as far as places to eat. There's a couple of good places in Norwich but the one place to keep in mind ... more »

Reply to Indiana MX National track build-out continues... 4/23/2014 8:35 AM

It's like comparing apples and oranges here, but, here's a couple of photos from the Monday after the GNCC there last year. This is after the woods had been gone through with Sweco's (those are those small trail dozers for those who don't know) and I ... more »

Reply to Indiana MX National track build-out continues... 4/21/2014 8:16 PM

I can assure anyone, having stood from various angles around that place, that it's a lot better for viewing than photos allow you to believe! Most of the track sits down in, or is on the sides of a valley. You can see a lot up top, you can even see a ... more »

Reply to Neon orange gear? 4/21/2014 12:14 PM

In all seriousness though, the brightest I've ever seen is definitely the Troy Lee stuff. It seems to have more of a pop than the others. Past that, the next brightest would probably be Alias. They've got a couple of different options when it comes to ... more »

Reply to Ryan Sipes and GNCC 3/11/2014 6:46 PM

Definitely a pretty tough course but there was also a good bit of trail that was a lot of fun in my opinion. We've already made our way to Georgia and Barry Hawk and myself spent this afternoon getting a loop spot arrowed and starting to get ready for ... more »

Reply to Mx Number companies. 2/27/2014 7:19 PM

I'll gladly admit that it's easy to buy the numbers offered by quite a few companies, but don't overlook PG. We don't typically offer individual numbers, but drop me a line at jared@ridepg.com and I'll set you up with something, and could probably get ... more »

Reply to Ryan Sipes to GNCC 2/12/2014 2:25 PM

Yeah, he mentioned that was the plan months ago. He's already been doing some local off-road races in preparation. He's on a KTM with help from Rockstar and WMR among others.

Reply to Any Husky fans? 2/4/2014 7:40 AM

Yep. He's the Team Manager on the off-road side.

Reply to MX MUSIC? 1/31/2014 1:08 PM

That's funny because Baba O'Riley (the real name of the song) is played before the riders meeting at EVERY single GNCC. To the regulars, it's pretty much your cue to be at the start. Rodney Tomblin, the announcer, is also extremely consistent with it ... more »

Reply to OT : KTM Bike Industries ? 1/22/2014 10:53 AM

KTM actually made bicycles before they ever made motorcycles.. Now they're being imported via Imperium Bicycles which is part of WMR. I haven't had the chance to ride a newer one but I rode one about 8 or so years ago that someone let me try. Definitely ... more »

I work what ends up being 2 full-time jobs in the industry. Once you take taxes, rent, utilities, food, gas (except travelling to races) more bills, and other stuff, it can get a bit tight. I pay the bills and get by with no problem but I'm definitely ... more »

Reply to Daytona supercross amatuer day and arenacross amatuer race 11/14/2013 10:35 AM

Spot on. From my experiences, you get a lot of guys who have never done an Arenacross who will jump into Novice (C) and actually could do just fine in Intermediate

. Definitely adds to the challenge and the track itself is still no cake walk ... more »
