Started new thread Tough weekend for New England motorsports.... RIP #24 and #24 8/2/2021 1:32 PM

Not sure how to type this up, as it's fucking surreal, but found out today that we lost TWO absolute pillars of the New England motorcycle scene this weekend. Pete Collins, Pete24 here on Vital, passed away racing at NHMX this weekend. Pete was also the owner of

Added reply in a thread SX/MX Flagging and Track Personnel Etiquette is a Joke 2/24/2021 10:14 PM

The red flag at the finish line is irrelevant, the proper flag was shown at the incident because medic's WERE on the track. All they need to do is follow the rule book and penalize riders that ignore safety flags. If just the red flag were shown rider's ... more »

Oh let's not forget when they flew the checkered flag early during a main event race a couple races ago. Honestly, who the fuck is running this clown show?

Started new thread SX/MX Flagging and Track Personnel Etiquette is a Joke 2/20/2021 6:07 PM

I've been biting my tongue on this for YEARS but after what I just watched... I'm over it. Why does SX/MX still treat on-track safety like a couple of good ol' boys ripping around the dirt field? It is NOT an elite level motorsport not matter how much ... more »

LOL. In roadracing where tracks are pavement and literally do not change (radius of corners, etc) we find it hard to compare laptimes to laptimes over the generations due to things like pavement degradation, amount of rubber laid down, did it rain recently ... more »

Added reply in a thread Moto Salary 2/6/2021 3:13 PM

Top factory 450 riders pull 7 figures base salary. SX 450 race wins tend to be 100k kicker and Championship 1m kicker. All day long. Drops off pretty steep after that. Current Top rider helmet deals can be anywhere from 100k to 1m. Seriously. Gear deals ... more »

I like that AJ Cat qualifies 26th fastest in an incredibly deep 450 field, in the premier global supercross series, and yet in another thread some dudes are calling him a hack. Sheeeesh. Side note: you can always tell which brand has the strongest contingency ... more »

Dealers don't make shit on bikes. Tiny margins. They make most of their money on PG&A and especially service.
