All the other mfgs have finally gotten rid of the cheesey black/white rear fenders, too.

A-Mart is the oldest guy I can think of that we've sent in a long time.

I don't really mind them. But I do think the ones with an angular downward bend in profile just look like you wadded it up in a crash. In fact, nearly every single PW50 in circulation has had that same fender contour installed by their rider at some ... more »

Best solution is to get a title from Colorado. PM me for other common option.

Added reply in a thread Why don't the Japanese make serious Dual Sports like KTM? 9/18/2016 1:01 PM

Tiny niche category with very strict regional emissions standards to chase. Probably better for more agile companies with less global focus.

I am willing to bet casing that double and getting out of the sand has more to do with momentum than power. That's one area where the 125 can help as a learning aid.

Added reply in a thread WTF??! Colors- I'm getting Old 9/18/2016 8:07 AM

Hmmm. It seems to me the newer gear is graphically way tamer in both design and color palette than 20-30 years ago. I have always preferred to ride with vibrant colors and also with other people who are wearing stuff that stands out, so as to be more ... more »

Gotta give her props for crushing that Cobra out of the turn on a PW. The TTR is definitely a step up in performance from a PW, and they are solid bikes. They are not in the same league as a KTM or Cobra in terms of hp, suspension or raceability (They ... more »

Doesn't sound like you have much experience with stock P-Dubs. Those things are beyond down-tuned. They are built to be like a small step up from a power-wheels, much milder in hit than even the auto-clutch 4-stroke 50s. Which is why they're great for ... more »

Agree. Tomac, Dungey, Roczen are hard to beat. If only there was somebody out there, perhaps one focused upon in this very discussion, who had experience beating all three of those guys pretty handily.

Ugh. I had a '72 Courier for about forever that I used as my knock-around pickup. Eventually got rid of it and consolidated to a Tundra that I use as my daily driver. I hate loading bikes into a modern full size truck. I hate the shape of the bed, the ... more »

I don't think anybody is crowning anybody. This line of discussion is in response to the statement "there is nobody even close to his stature as a racer coming up behind him." To which the only reasonable response is that the are guys of similar pedigree ... more »

That was the original color scheme for the '91, but so many were replaced with single-color aftermarket covers.

They still are as obnoxious as they were. But now time has rendered them so outrageously corny as to be nostalgically fun. Some other bikes of the era that I can think of that have the same so-bad-that-it-is-good graphical appeal: the scribble-colored ... more »

And the point is further driven when you look at Webb's results from his rookie season vs Forkner's. Kid undeniably has elite level talent.

There was never a Ford Ranger crew cab in the US market. There was a Ford "Explorer Sport Trac" crew cab, but it was not available with a 6' bed.

I gotta go with Mitchell Harrison. Showed results/consistency that hadn't really been there yet for him through his rookie campaign.
