Added reply in a thread The rising cost of our sport 3/1/2021 11:31 AM

The funny thing about this photo: I drove to the track Saturday in an 04 Silverado worth no more than $5000. There were guys in the nicer trucks around the pits with brand-new bikes, others with well-maintained two-year plus old machines, and sore hard-ridden

As one of the guys taking fire for this thing recently, I truly appreciate that you came back and acknowledged a misunderstanding. For real, thanks. I know Donn isn't everyone's favorite. I've hated him a time or 10 myself. But outside of family, no ... more »

Another story that's gotten more complicated over time. Whole story explained at 36-minute mark. http://pulpmx.com/podcast/guest-donn-maeda-2/ MC was one of the first to support SML and our offices are above his truck race shop in Elsinore.

For more context that no one will pay attention to: Donn didn't write that (someone else on staff did but he didn't stop it, so yes a mistake), and although FLY stopped advertising with TWMX as a result, we got them back by working together and they ... more »

Hard Rock bar at the Indy show in 09. That pep talk stuck with me. Thanks, Manny.

Agreed. In typical Internet fashion, I responded to something the wrong way and regretted it later, then went on to explain in other tweets how I shouldn’t have said anything. My bad, was a little pissy after this whole thing kicked off and saw comments ... more »

Nice

Again, a small thing between friends/business partners was accidentally brought up and blown out of proportion. I appreciate the support, but not clicking on SML content as a protest doesn’t really help me haha. That’s where my entire paycheck comes ... more »

It’s all good. Nothing bad or personal between anyone in our friend group, just trying to work on all the things SML needs first. Will probably be on again sooner than some of you’d hope.

It's the notch in the top of the frame, something they have in all of their goggles and some of the glasses. 100% is very protective of that design feature (they take pride in it like Nike does the Air Max bubble) and anyone that copies it gets contacted ... more »

Added reply in a thread Biggest Motocross Toy Collection in the USA? Maybe in the world? 12/29/2020 6:09 AM

Awesome to see more people stashed away their bikes from the 2000s, still have an Ernesto Fonseca Honda in its box. We can expect more new MX toys to come soon, too. Feld/Monster Jam and Hot Wheels had a falling out a few years ago, which turned into ... more »

Added reply in a thread Dylan Ferrandis - Close call (Injured Broken Hand) 12/4/2020 5:59 AM

Ferrandis told us that the injury will not require surgery for the broken bone in his hand and that the crash happened because "The take-off was shot and I just misjudged it."

Sounds like the same jump got them both.

Added reply in a thread Unpopular Opinion: WTF are these guys thinking 11/29/2020 8:16 PM

Considering I'm the person that wrote this, and not Donn, I'll take on this one. Here we go... I make my entire income off motocross by going to races, talking to people in the industry, taking photos, doing interviews, and coming up with ideas that ... more »

Archview is set to be open for practice on Friday and Saturday. Weather over here has been rainy and cool for a few days, but that part of the weekend should be okay.

As soon as they get one for a YZ, I’ll order. Oh, and it’s made by kids. “All our Taco Moto Co. 3D printed products are engineered and produced by 14 year old Brady and Kaden and 13 year old Elijah. “Our partnership with these clever and innovative kids ... more »

“I’m all for free market and ingenuity. It breeds innovation!” Meanwhile, a guy makes a product that fills a void, hopes to make a profit, add maybe a little money to the industry. “Why the fuck would I buy that?! I could have made it.” Yeah, but you ... more »

As much as we love the vibe of crammed hillsides and all that goes with the MXON, InFront wants to make the event easy for anyone to come and watch. Assen was the trial run.
