Anyone got any guesses on how Covid-19 will affect when the 2021 bikes will be delivered?

When’s Savatgy coming back? After Tomac stiffed Joey at the Monster Cup - if anybody has a reason to help make it harder for Tomac to win the SX title - it’s him.

Buying the first year of a completely redesigned bike is somewhat of a risk... Hard to know if you’re going to be encountering problems the manufacturer needs to correct in future revisions.

Bump for price drop.

Alpinestars Tech 10 White / Size 12 Worn once (less than an hour). Decided I needed a size 11. I can’t say they’re new - but they’re close to new with very minor wear. $450 Shipped within the continental US.

Earlier this summer I asked a tester (who will remain nameless) whether he thought Honda would offer a tunable mapping tool for the 2021 bikes. The guy I asked wouldn’t confirm or deny - but he said if it were him - he’d wait to buy a 2021 bike.

Started new thread Electric Trials Bike... Flame away. 12/14/2019 9:08 AM

Short story, we moved and I no longer have a pump track or pit bike. I kind of got use to the idea of not being able to rip around in my backyard anymore, but I saw a guy with an Oset 24.0 electric trials bike the other day. It was actually pretty impressive. ... more »

I was going to sell my 2017 and buy a 2020 bike this summer. I decided to wait because there wasn’t enough difference between the bikes to make me want to buy new. I also figured that Honda has to make some significant changes to their 2021 450 to compete ... more »

Added reply in a thread Wondering why manufacturers don’t offer different frame sizes? 12/5/2019 9:24 AM

I hear you, and have thought about rider specific settings too. You can “snowcheck” a snowmobile, and essentially order a sled with custom options that include suspension, tracks, colors, etc... The shop takes your order and your deposit and sends it ... more »

Started new thread Wondering why manufacturers don’t offer different frame sizes? 12/5/2019 8:19 AM

I’m sure the ultimate answer is that it’s not financially viable for manufacturers to offer different frame sizes for their 250s and 450s. But, why is that? I know dealers aren’t selling a ton of dirt bikes in general, so they wouldn’t want to stock ... more »

Added reply in a thread Whoa! Ryan Dungey Becomes Part Owner of Factory Connection Racing 12/3/2019 8:22 AM

Sponsors are hard to recruit and keep (ask JGR about this). If an established and stable team can recruit someone like Dungey; it solidifies their position in the sport even further. I would imagine that a sponsor who has a long term relationship with ... more »

Added reply in a thread Hoosier tire reviews/comparison 11/22/2019 12:39 PM

The only thing I would say Hoosier could improve, is adding a directional arrow on the sidewall. There’s a small serial number that will face the sprocket side of the bike for the rear, and the rotor side for the front - but I talked to two guys at the ... more »

Added reply in a thread Hoosier tire reviews/comparison 11/20/2019 8:20 AM

No problem! Those guys at fasterusa sell any other tire you’d find online, and actually have ridden them all too. They know what they’re talking about, and hooked me up with a bunch of Hoosier swag when they sent my tires.

Started new thread Did you go a size up in your Astars Tech 10s? 11/11/2019 10:16 AM

Time to replace my Gaernes, and I’m going with Alpinestars Tech 10s. I wear size 11 street shoe, and a size 11 Tech 10 feels snug. The size 12 feels comfortable and borders on roomy. Does the Tech 10 bootie or boot pack out at all after it breaks in ... more »

I’ve only broken 3 at one time, so compared to what other people are saying, my 3 seem relatively minor. If you feel a clicking sensation, it’s almost guaranteed they’re broken. Everyone’s provided good advice, and most times ribs heal on their own. ... more »

Is Johnny O’mara still working with Joey? If so, seems like Johnny would be able to coach Joey on how he presents himself as much as he coaches him on the bike.

Started new thread Tim Gajser - stiffer settings? 9/8/2019 9:33 AM

I’m sure Honda and Tim Gajser have determined the optimal settings for him and his bike - but is it just me, or does it seem like most of the time he ends up on the deck - it seems like it could be as much a setup issue than pilot error? Case in point: ... more »

Hey Michael - what’s your assessment of the Slacker? I’ve seen the reviews, but do you use yours only when you’re solo? Wondering if your results with the Slacker are close enough to what you’d get when you have help that you’d recommend it. Thanks,

Agreed, but I know some dealers may have customers paying MSRP for Works or Factory Edition bikes that have limited production. Anyway, I wasn’t going to spend more time with the guy than I had to.
