Reed looks hungry. The relationship with Rossi and Yamaha seems to have given him a new lease on (moto)life. What a great example for his kids. Focus on what you really want in life, then go after it with everything you have. Forget the naysayers.

In the lake or river, not much. In the surf, odds are you'll see useless kooks who couldn't normally paddle, pop up and catch a wave, endangering themselves and others. I've already seen it with the SUP crowd. These will be like SUPtards on steroids. ... more »

Ain't that the truth! LOL

Unlikely. I'm 6'6 and about 225. Was a Jr black belt at 11.

If I see someone on one of these things out in the break, I will make it my duty to snake and destroy them. Lakes and rivers - couldn't care less.

block75 and haydos25: agree on both counts.

Great ride from Reed. He could have cleaned out Brayton in that bowl turn after the short cut lane, but didn't. He bobbled and still tracked down Brayton and pressured him into getting throttle happy on corner exit. Hence the mistake. I had many drinks ... more »

I'm calling Moosecan from Bam Bam, with Mookie in third.

A-fking-men! I still randomly yell out "CHAD REEEEED!!!" a la Ralph Shaheen. + That new YZ250 they've buily for him for Aus-X is so tasty. Reedy on a Yamaha smoker is just so right. I have a YZ125 and YZ450F. Have always loved Yamaha, including having ... more »

Thanks again, Brad460. It looked different on the cycra shroud but as soon as I realised, it was so obvious.

Great looking bike, mate. Could you please tell me what sticker kit that is? I am looking for one for the Cycra shroud that looks factory/stock, and this definitely fits the bill. Thanks in advance.

Bros, it's pretty obvious from the video that RV needs to go +1 on the rear sprocket and install a hydraulic clutch if he has any hope of keeping up with whatever KTM or Husky may be on the track. However, my inside source tells me he is totally satisfied ... more »

Reply to Well well haha... 11/2/2016 4:42 AM

I have to be real. I had an 06 and still have a 14. The 06 cornered amazingly well, and for a 450, I could put it anywhere (that's what SHE said). It dove into corners, could be backed in at heavy lean through flat corners and always felt light yet planted. ... more »

Did anyone just catch the Monster Kawasaki floor mat in the background on instagram...? I have no idea how to embed the "story" thingo.

Run the number 99 and try to pick up sponsorship from "AND 1" Sorted.

Reply to how about a forum for electric bikes 10/22/2016 11:36 PM

I can see a future in which: - electric replaces heavy, expensive four strokes (with an equally heavy, as expensive, but zero maintenance "motor" bike); and - people still ride and work on their own two strokes, as a fun, cheaper, nostalgic alternative. ... more »

Spot on. Add a 125 class at select rounds and you have perfection.
