At first I thought AUS-X Open or RBSR, but then I noticed the Pro Circuit bike and the Bell helmet in the background...

Yeah, he's definitely swapped to Bell - note the Oakley goggles.

As for the bike, it's definitely a pro circuit build, as opposed the factory bikes we normally see him on.

I thought he mentioned on a recent interview about his ORV park that he would start riding more this fall. I think he just couldn't ride much with the twins being born.

Might order a pizza, take a nap, doesn't really matter.

I don't think you were thinking that this was taken at the ORV park he runs now, but that photo definitely wasn't taken at his ORV park.

That's isn't the park he runs. The ORV park he runs is in Washington and not something a pro would practice on.

What I mentioned wasn't specifically related to the picture. Simply stating he mentioned in a video interview he was going to be riding more is all. I assume this picture is backing up what he said then.

On second look at this photo, this is 100% a pro circuit bike and not a factory kawi build.

The giveaways:

Pro circuit suspension
Pro circuit graphic kit
Pro circuit bar mounts etc.

That is a Pro Circuit built KX450F, not a factory team bike.

RV could send one text message and Williamson would have a works 450 in a crate to him the next week if really needed... Those guys still love him as much as Mitch does.

I've analyzed the photo and come to 2 conclusions of what he's saying.

1: He's out of breath from riding, this could be because he hasn't been riding SX much.

2: He's out of breath from riding at Glen Helen, this could be because he hasn't been riding SX much.

What?

Bet he is in negotiations.. hence the white gear...

Must feel nice to wear a real helmet for the first time in years.

I'll be pretty disappointed if Thor drop him. All those years of being a Thor athlete even with those ugly helmets..

What's weirder is Mcgrath still looks to have a factory Kawi and no sign of Thor dropping him.

Obviously I'm not knocking MC, but RV has been way more loyal to both Kawasaki and Thor (entire pro career for both) why would they pick MC over him? - mainly Kawi (still an odd deal to me)

Guess RV took some time out of the limelight but still.. Going by this, I imagine RV will be an all out PC guy in Fox gear for Aus SX open.

You can see a Fox logo on the bike so maybe you're right? I guess they could just be the PC graphics.

But I'm pretty sure his sister is dating the dude who owns Canvas gear so maybe a connection there?

Wonder how much a retired rider like RV can still get for a gear deal.

Probably still pulls in more than some of the top 10 riders gear deals

There are two kinds of people against dirt bikes, those who never tried and those who weren't good at them.

On PulpMX (I think just after he was announced as a Kawi ambassador) he said he wasn't getting paid to wear Thor.
