New thread 2 stroke: 250 vs 300 4/21/2020 8:25 AM

Reply to Food for thought: Getting injured right now would be worse than normal 3/20/2020 8:30 AM

From what I’ve seen in the hospital I work in is, it’s almost the opposite. Hospitals aren’t overwhelmed right now. ER is actually slow because people aren’t coming in for minor things, and the hospital is discharging patients to keep room available ... more »

New thread Food for thought: Getting injured right now would be worse than normal 3/20/2020 7:18 AM

Reply to Glen Helen 6 hr Race 2/26/2020 9:52 AM

I raced the ironman class last year on my yz450 thats setup for moto. They only thing I did was slap some hand guards on. It was a TON of fun. IMO a smaller gas tank helped because it gave me a break to get off the bike for a refuel.

This goes back much longer then this season. JA has always raced JB super hard and left Brayton on the ground a lot over the years. Looks like JB finally had enough of it.

Reply to Kit? Really? 12/4/2019 7:55 AM

I don't have any facts to back this, but its a carry over from cycling. Cycling gear has always been refereed to as a "kit", and "kit" started being used in moto when cycling and mountain biking started becoming a bigger and bigger training tool. So ... more »

Next question: Does anyone know if there is a series that runs races like this in Southern California?

I'm talking about 450 factory teams.

New thread Factory Kawi’s mechanical’s 7/21/2019 10:33 AM

Does anyone else think for a factory level 450 team Kawi was unacceptable amount of mechanical issues? In recent history I can't remember another factory level team with so many mechanicals, but I could just be hyper focused on Kawi and not pay attention ... more »

I was wondering if anyone has gotten their hands on one of the GET Smart SOS hour meters and has any feedback. Seems like a cool idea. I'd like to get one or something similar that will work for moto as well as road and mountain biking.
