I've written a few in-depth posts (check my comment history) talking about the 2017+ generation Husqvarna's and KTM 250's. Highly recommended. Cheers.

After 15 years of sleeping in tents, on floors, in cars, and basically wherever we could fit, the wife and I finally upgraded to the big leagues. HUGE difference in quality of life at the track. Primarily it's for our trackdays/roadracing but if we head

I've kind of purposely kept my Yard Lap (track) sort of basic and more of a scrambling track with natural terrain. As I'm :30 minutes from Cahuilla Creek, a fantastic MX track, I'd rather go there for serious moto and keep the yard looking sort of natural

Really? What county are you in? I'm in San Diego County and I'm continually impressed with CalTrans upkeep of our roads. We had major winter storms pass thru last year and wash away a lot of our roadways and they were out there fixing them ASAP. I live ... more »

I always liked the one where the desert racer breaks down out in the middle of nowhere and has to eat his bike.

Added reply in a thread Handlebar Pros and Cons 3/13/2020 10:08 AM

Lower bars put a lot more strain on my lower back to be 'bent over' when in the attack position, and the transition from seated to standing is harder. Taller bars 'come up to meet me' if you will, resulting in more comfort, control, and less lower back ... more »

Weird that a bunch of self-proclaimed 'independent hard nosed take no nonsense non-snowflake manly men' on Vital can't seem to wrap their heads around the fact that: 'LIFE AIN'T FAIR' You played it safe and didn't race for the win? Shortened season bums ... more »

I'm 6'1" with a 'long torso' and I went with CR Highs for the first time with my current bike. Prior to that I always just ran what the bike came with. Oh man, huge different and waaaay better. For you taller guys, don't discount having a set of bars ... more »

I guarantee you the OEMs will claim those championships. The sponsors will claim those championships. The riders will claim those championships. In the words of the late, great Nicky Hayden "That's why we race on Sunday". Because you never know what ... more »

Added reply in a thread Is banning electronic aids better for the sport. 3/12/2020 10:06 AM

MotoGP has gone through this. In 2002 4-strokes were introduced which was the death knell for 2-stroke racing in the premier class. With that, the electronic age started to take off. In recent years they have worked to reel that in, with a spec ECU being ... more »

Yeah perhaps, been a LONG time. Those were the 'epic' pits. There was a gnarly sand track out there, and I think it was next to a gravel/sand company? My riding buddy lived next to my grandparents house near the Silver City Galleria on Country Street ... more »

I too grew up in South Shore MA (Raynham / Taunton) and would ride the sand pits in Freetown and Lakeville. We'd ride the rail road tracks from Taunton to Freetown, park our bikes behind the packie (pull the spark plug wire so no one steals your bike),

Ralph was in fine form last night. The "Man Body" and "2-wheelin" bits along with slobbering all over DAAAAYTONA THE BIGGEST RACE OF THE YEAR (it's not) were causing my ears to bleed. Which was nice, because my eyes were also bleeding from the show director ... more »
