And it's a different chassis that has widely been opined as inferior handling to the '05 YZ125 frame. But that chassis design does offer considerable advantages with regards problematic intake-tract designs on linkaged single shock fuel-injected motorcycles, ... more »

Yamaha monoshock, forward mount, and catilever shock vintage mxers have pretty high leverage ratios compared to the bikes pictured, though still low compared to modern bikes.

Everything bends when you jump a vintage mxer.

Because the swingarm leverage ratio on (non forward-mount) twin shocks is so low, they do almost no work at all compared to modern shocks.

I will say this: His energy drink sponsor seems to have got him up on more gas station posters and refrigerator decals than I have seen with any other rider this year.

Yeah, it's like finding a Chevy Vega GT in showroom condition. You can appreciate the novelty of finding it -- even to the point of almost wanting it -- but then you remember what it actually is.

They fixed the dreadful handling by then, but they still pinged nonstop and vibrated like a paint shaker.

In SX, Seely and Anderson will continue their history of always finding each other on the track.

Once again, granola types are only a piece of the puzzle and, sure, they may not get placated. Residential NIMBYS are an equally large, if not larger group (ain't it grand when they build in next to long-established riding land and then complain?), and ... more »

It's not about winning over those people. It should go without saying that minimizing sonic footprint will mean more riding area, private and public. Neighbors to our riding land are a much more legitimate concern than other users of mixed-use public ... more »

Added reply in a thread Do we really do everything we can for safety? 8/19/2016 3:46 PM

I don't see traction control increasing the safety in MX too much. There just aren't that many nasty slip-then-grip flings like used to be a normal sight in road racing before traction control. It's just a low traction situation almost all over the track. ... more »
