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.

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.

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

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.

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 »

What I aprticularly enjoy is the "Progressive Pass of the Race" that they sometimes choose before the halfway mark, most of the time some lame ass pass of a guy moving through the pack. No sooner did they show is in the 250 main at A1 and Anderson was ... more »

IMHO guys need to start getting more aggressive with RV2. It's not like he's a Travis Preston sized monster out there... he's 5ft and a few inches... if he starts getting rough with you, blast him out of the way in the next corner if you can get a wheel ... more »
Reply to JGR - Kayaba? 12/30/2013 2:58 PM
They talked about this on the PulpMX show a few weeks back, the one with SHorty... basically the thinking is the Yamaha is trying to justify its existence at the track and is flexing muscle with JGR forcing them to run the KYB components.
