All the best Jimmy D! From one Masshole to another... was always fun watching and rooting for you. Remember racing at Winchester Speed Park SX nights and seeing Jimmy D out there on a minibike straight killing it.

Fun vid. Question thou: At the beginning you are riding around some heavy equipment (old mining stuff?) and past a few steel buildings (overhead drone shot). Those part of the listing? If they aren't then it's a bit confusion because assumption is everything ... more »

Man... being a kid obsessed with mx in the late 80's and early 90's... DMC bikes were the ultimate! RIP DM.

Hi. I wrote this essay on 2st v 4st back in February when we had another post like this going around (see below). They are common... Just sharing some various info from my POV and take from it what you will... I will only add, based on your comments

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.

Reply to 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 »

Reply to 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 »

Reply to Massachusetts teenagers fined $750 for riding on their own property 3/11/2020 9:36 AM

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),
