New thread NBC Sports Gold ski racing 1/11/2020 2:22 AM

Does anyone subscribe? I’m flirting with the idea of adding it to my MX/SX subscription. How is the coverage compared to, say, moto? I have pay tv but that only shows random Eurosport coverage and the TV guide is NEVER accurate (delays, not shown at ... more »

New thread The times they are a changin' 11/4/2018 1:58 PM

I thought about posting this yesterday after coming home from the track, but I was tired and not ready for the flame wars. This morning I read the thread about Yamaha drastically cutting their budget, and so I decided to post this. For a while, I thought ... more »

New thread How long do you usually get out of a set of vinyl graphics? 6/7/2018 3:27 AM

As per the title. I have had some sets that have lasted aaaaages, and I have had sets that look bombed out after a couple of rides. Sometimes it takes an atomic storm to remove the graphics, sometimes they start peeling before I have even ridden while ... more »

New thread Kawasaki SXR 1500 stand up 5/17/2018 6:02 PM

Has anyone ridden one or owned one? I am a big guy (mid-6s and right now about 105kg). I’ve ridden a borrowed superjet a handful of times and it was fun but too twitchy for my liking. Intended use would be river cruising and carving, mangrove dicing ... more »

New thread VEGAS SX attendees 4/19/2018 10:13 PM

Who is attending the finale? I am going to be in the US anyway, so decided "EFF IT, I'M GOING!". I also bought a pit party pass, not sure if it was worth it but whatever. Do you guys usually do a meet beforehand and sink some drinks and talk shit, or ... more »

New thread Frankston crash on Saturday 12/18/2017 8:03 PM

Does anyone know what happened? I'm not a facebook user but even still, there is no detail on there other than that the track is shut again as a poor young man lost his life. Deepest condolences to his parents, family and friends if they happen to read ... more »

New thread Is anyone rocking the buff? 8/16/2017 9:10 PM The last few baking hot aussie summers (30-47C), I've toyed with the idea of some sun protection and cooling. It gets super hot, which is fine with me fitness wise, but sunscreen is ... more »

New thread Dear Vital, RE: 2018 250 shootout 7/26/2017 4:17 PM

Could you pleeeeeeeaaaaase include the 250 smokers in this year's shootout? I think the 250 smokers are the most relevant they have been in a long time. A lot of amateur racing org's (and even AUS MX Nationals) now allow 250 4T vs 250 2T, so it would ... more »

New thread A-stars, Atlas neck brace questions 7/17/2017 10:36 PM

I own the A-stars BNS Pro (current model) and to be honest, I haven't used it for maybe 8 months. It feels too bulky, wobbles around when launching off jump faces (especially through rhythm sections...) and inevitably one or both of the x-straps will ... more »

New thread Wilson says Dean isn't done yet 7/8/2017 5:22 PM

Well done, Deano. I'm so happy for him to get back into some form. He has done the hard yards and faced the struggle head on. Now it's paying off. Good on him.

New thread 2017 KTM FE frame, plastic colours 6/13/2017 2:42 PM

Does anyone know if these colours are the same as the 2018 stock models? If the colours are different, does anyone have the correct paint codes/part numbers (or aftermarket plastic kit)? I am looking to build a current model smoker into a TLD styled ... more »

New thread I just stood in my local KTM dealer for over 15m waiting to buy a 250SX and was completely snubbed. Ask me anything. 3/19/2017 7:42 PM

These guys need to get a grip on reality. I always buy Yamaha (YZ125 and 450F currently) but have owned a KTM 250SX before. Given all the great feedback on the 2017 model, I decided to treat myself. The bike was on the floor. I have cash. This is the ... more »

New thread Flat track/dirt track - anyone have (or have built) one [possible non-moto] 1/29/2017 10:30 PM

Hi all I am looking at putting in a turn track that would be like a mini version of Rossi's Moto Ranch. The idea is to have a track that kids and adults can have fun on, and for the experienced rider, really push the limits of front and rear grip at ... more »

New thread Hypothetical: the 250 rules change tomorrow... 1/23/2017 5:38 PM

...and anyone in the 250 class can ride any 250cc either two stroke (2T) or four stroke (4T). What happens next? Would the smokers be competitive indoors? Would some pros choose to ride 4T indoors and 2T outdoors? Riders running 4T for dry, skatey West ... more »

New thread Your favorite Ralphisms 12/17/2016 11:43 AM

With SX season nearly upon us, we stand dizzyingly on the precipice of another season bountiful with Ralphisms. So whether it's Villopoto "coming hard from behind" or just some random gibberish punctuated by a "JAMES STEW-ART!!!!!", or simply explaining ... more »

New thread Questions for knee injury sufferers/knee brace users 12/4/2016 1:37 AM

Hi guys No, I am not looking for a diagnosis or medical advice. I already have both of those. The thing is, none of the latter has actually worked, and after resuming riding I get intense pain. The therapy works great as long as I don't ride..... Anyway, ... more »

New thread Serious KTM question 11/23/2016 4:42 AM

With the bikes seemingly as good as they are this year, what can KTM/Husky possibly do for 17.5 FE and MY18? I can't see too much more weight loss, given they are at or near minimum race weights, and it's unlikely that the smokers will go EFI/DI. BTW, ... more »
