Digging it. Appears to be keeping the great aspects of the platform with a slimmer and lighter feel. New engine is a surprise. Sign me up.

It should exist, it should be called the AMA Grand National Championship. The winner should get a blue number one plate to run for the next year.

For a T1D, like the OP you are addressing, your advice is absolutely counterproductive. Foods high in glycemic index create an immediate host of symptoms that you with a functional pancreas could only fathom.

Pretty grim year. If Wright gets a perfect season I’m afraid it won’t be viewed the same as it would have in past seasons.

One certainly hopes that charges will be brought to those who conspired against Mladin.

I was diagnosed as a Type 1 in April 2017 at age 33. It has been quite an adjustment. Moto is such a cornerstone of my life, I was determined not to let diabetes get in the way. Of course, it absolutely does in reality. For me, hot and humid days are ... more »

Looking for a set of 25mm clamps, I understand these were only on 16 and 17 YZ450s. Located in Canada and will pay shipping. Thanks!

That's pretty cool, in a frankenstein kinda way. Curious what type of top end and crank life you'll get.

Added reply in a thread Todays stock bikes compared to older factory bikes 4/4/2022 7:58 PM

I have heard accounts that Carmichael's 2004 CRF450 (which was 216lb, before the different weight limit for 450s was imposed) is as good an outdoor bike as anything the team produced for 15 years - which suggests it would be better than today's stocker.

If the hit is bad enough, you just stop, not “pit for a new helmet” FFS. Personal responsibility is rapidly going extinct.

Added reply in a thread Hypothetical question regarding riders and new bikes every year. 2/28/2022 7:19 PM

Bikes get better over time, though the progress is not linear of course. So if you are sticking with the same platform, you better hope your competition is as well and not making improvements. There is a lot to be said for comfort - new does not automatically ... more »
