Do any of you bros ski or board? If I lived where it snowed, I’d be out carving. Beats a minimum 2.5hr drive to the snow like we have in Melbourne, AUS.

Dear Mr Walker You ride that 450 like I ride a 125! Great video. Great riding. Great bike. I’m going to go to my secret place now and think about my life. Regards Barry McSlow

I saw this a couple of days ago. Watched it several times. He rode the shit out of that YZ, exactly how it’s supposed to be treated. “Obviously”.

Ok thanks. I’m Benny Bloss size, so I wonder whether half an inch will even be noticeable.

Did you notice any reduction in quad fatigue or increase in control when standing? I am very fit (I can run for an hour plus non-stop, cycle all day no issue, lift weights regularly), but after 2 or 3 practice motos my quads are destroyed for the next ... more »

That whip from Marquier was INSANE!

Reply to 125/150 rear brake technique entering corners?? 9/30/2018 5:03 PM

A combination of 2 and 3, depending on the corner and conditions. You MUST use the clutch on a 125. The clutch is your friend. One finger on it at all times ready to feather it. Once you get it down, it’ll be second nature. Some corners you just take ... more »

Strike a bloody light, ya flamin mongrels. Deadset, some of you blokes are madder than a cut snake. Have a pig’s ear and relax.

I had one custom made by my dentist. I've chipped and broken teeth without one, but never with one.

Reply to Tour de France , who is your pick? 7/25/2018 11:34 PM

Bingo. Spartacus. A true hero and inspirational rider. So many stunning rides, but I will never forget his Flanders ride against Sagan in 2013. The attack on Paterberg will forever give me chills.

Exactly this. I had an 06. Fantastic bike and absolutely bulletproof. I rode the living hell out of mine and only ever changed the oil. Only thing to be careful of is stripping out the threads on the oil drainage bolt. The case material is a lot softer ... more »

Reply to Dungey... RC... Gotta love this. 7/17/2018 9:13 PM

I thought the exact same thing. *shifty eyes* "Just getting ready for the new....2019....season...." As a rider, coach or team manager/co-manager, something is on the cards for next year in SX. BTW, I am not a Dungey fan at all. But I see what I see. ... more »

Reply to Kade Mosig suspended in Australia 7/13/2018 3:52 PM

I can totally understand riders risking the consequences of using performance enhancing drugs in Australian motocross. I mean, there are literally hundreds of dollars at stake, as well as all the fame and adoration from the general public that comes ... more »

If Team USA of the Mighty Vitards doesn't want Tomac, Australia will have him. Eli, report to the nearest RM Williams store at 0900. They'll give you everything you need.
