I got lucky with Jerry once. After that I folded up shop and am officially out of the Jerry business.

How old is moto dad? Does moto dad still moto, or used to and now just loves moto?

Haha, easy there guy you might sprain a thumb, keyboard warrior. Where do I sign up for your motocross academy?

Snow Webb and the Seven Drawfs.

Reply to Rear handbrake? 6/3/2020 10:18 PM

You do realize that you have to use the rear brake and the clutch at the same time very often right? Even in RH turns. So unless you are using an auto clutch, you got problems. SX and moto aren't like trail riding.

Reply to Picked Up a clean 2011 TTR110 today, best changes or mods? 6/3/2020 8:16 AM

This is what sumdood was referring to: TTR110 manual clutch kit When we had the TTR, we ran this thing and it was a really good mod for it. It can still work in auto-clutch mode (lever is optional), but having the lever was good to teach my kid the concept of it before ... more »

I have a crew cab and longer bed on my truck, but if I had to give one thing up, it definitely wouldn't be the cab.

That’s a bold statement. He’s literally living a dream even today, and you think he should fold it up and not race. The guy is making more money right now than most people in the US, is riding a motorcycle doing it, has a future career in the wings, ... more »

It definitely means more than a spy in the US in certain parts. Wanted to let you clear it up so people that don’t know better get the wrong impression. People are overly sensitive but it’s worse if the intention is nowhere near what folks think. And ... more »

Gonna have to explain what you mean by spook Crush, that's a loaded word depending on where you're from.

Reply to What happened to Reed? 5/31/2020 10:04 PM

The dude qualified for the main out of the heat. If you want to say he quit, fine, but dang man he's a legend in the sport from a time where everyone else is gone. Maybe he saw how the track was deteriorating and said F this? That chewed up track almost ... more »

Could you ever bear to ride it? I think I'd just have a dust rag, and scotch brite + WD-40 can next to her for the pipe.

Not really a reader anymore, though I do still support them with an annual digital subscription. They aren't perfect, they're getting a little long in the tooth, but we need more publications like them in our world, not less. I don't know if they still ... more »

That's the most oz redneck sh*t I've ever read in my life. It'd be like an Appalachian speech-to-text conversion with no editing in the US.

Oh yeah the blue ALS-2. Here's my older brother sporting that one.

He's on an 88 CR250 there, first bike with the "low-boy" pipe to try to move the center of gravity (mostly the gas tank back then) down. Man o man, love those years in life. ... more »

100%. I get that we can get over a bolt, most of us work on bikes more than we ride them and can find a longer one no problem. Using furlough as an excuse for not responding to customers just grinds my gears maybe more than it should, and I barked. And ... more »

Surely Perebijnos' replacement wasn't on furlough (and yeah maybe his operational gaps were filled by 4 different people). This isn't a call center / email support issue. Whoever is covering for Paul (and I don't envy you) is dropping the ball. And "The ... more »

Thanks man. Yeah I prefer it very basic and subdued. I appreciate flash, but it's not for me. Being a punk kid way back, I dig when guys do anything in that vein (if not overdone), though misfits seems the most common. DM me a link to your husky design, ... more »
