I was thinking it would be cool to have them as line art, so that way kids could color them. I used to have a motocross coloring book back in 1989 and it was awesome.

Monster and REdBull are so restrictive on their logo usage, I wouldn't be surprised if Diana D. has signed a clause saying that she won't even be seen using that color and shade of green outside of her duties with them.

THis is creepy as shit. Honestly why would anyone want to buy this? You have a business case and plan? Kudos for the initiative, but it is just strange.

That gear looks disgustingly cheap.

Reply to MXGP Video Game 3/28/2014 10:10 AM

Whoever is playing here is terrible. The physics, especially the airborne trajectory, look terrible. And why can't a fucking MX game have decent bike sounds. I see they paid Guiseppe his money. That's a shame.

Reply to Butt Patches and Logo's, Who makes 'em? 3/15/2014 5:42 PM

I still have some Honda patches that my rep at No Fear sent to me back in the day when I had a support deal... they aren't rubber, they are a 3-D vinyl type material, exactly to what you would find on the legs of RC or RV or any of the factory riders ... more »

Reply to Butt Patches and Logo's, Who makes 'em? 3/14/2014 6:01 PM

I want to know where the gear companies get theirs made. I used to get some from No Fear that were die-cut and had a three dimensional texture, ie the letters in HONDA were raised against the outline.

New thread Gaerne Boot Choice Advice 3/11/2014 10:28 AM

So my lil brother is looking to change from his A-Stars to some Gaernes. Do any of you have any experience with the SG-10 or SG-12? Preferably someone who has had both and can give an educated pro/con description of both, specifically is the 12 worth ... more »

I know Brett personally as well as his dad Ronnie. I just like giving him shit because he is the only factory practice-rider that's ever lived! Good to see he got a job at Motosport Outlet though.

What does this guy do again?

Reply to Pro Circuit 450 vs Monster Kawi 450 3/6/2014 1:28 AM

The best explanation I've heard regarding the high cost of "works" parts is this... "The factory is using the cost of works parts to get profits and money out of America and back to Japan. A set of custom Ti footpegs doesn't cost anywhere near $3,000 ... more »

Exactly! This looks like the most slapped together event ever, but if you look at it knowing how quickly all of this would take off (then die again) it looks very proto-...

Just google One Industries Phat Numbers... they are still available to buy. I like personally the NStyle Factory slanted numbers.

Reply to Why I wear TLD... 2/9/2014 11:43 PM

TLD, since the SX team's very inception, has consistently had the best looking bikes on the track.

Reply to Inside Specialized Bicycles 2/8/2014 9:01 PM

Why the fuck would someone pay 4k for a MOUNTAIN BIKE! They have no engine/tranny/use significantly less metal. I don't understand it.

Reply to Custom Painted Helmet Thread 2/8/2014 6:24 AM

You're right, what do I know...I'm only a professionally trained artist with a background in advertising design (the training for which involves recognizing and learning numerous styles of artwork). So when I say that the style choices and design elements ... more »

Reply to Custom Painted Helmet Thread 2/7/2014 7:08 PM

I like your helmet, but it is WAY beyond similarities... nearly every design element in the scheme is something that Tagger has popularized.

Reply to Custom Painted Helmet Thread 2/7/2014 9:32 AM

Yes the bull is on the back. The orange peel is bad. The Emig replica is the best work Shades has done. I personally think that WAY too many people are copying Tagger's style these days, and not doing half as good in the process. Ric Duppstadt is still ... more »

Dude what is up with that SHOWTIME Jacket! That thing is stylin! Reminds me of the uber trick RS Taichi coats.

He said on the Pulp show that the team is breaking even now.
