LOL, I still use it to this day! I grew up in Lakewood / Bellflower area!

Added reply in a thread Track toolbox ? 6/3/2021 7:20 AM

For decades I have a red plastic toolbox with top tray, about 11” by 24” by maybe 10” tall, big enough for everything I need on race day including wrenches, socket set, screw drivers, Allen wrenches, spoke wrench, tire gauge, hammer, mud scrapers, pliers, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Why do riders Sandbag C class? 6/3/2021 7:11 AM

I like the way they do it at some So Cal races either a true beginner class. Back in the ‘80s we managed it pretty easily by having a point system to move riders through the classes. Beginner was for riders who have only been racing for 1 year (managed ... more »

Added reply in a thread Help with goggle/breathing issue? 5/28/2021 3:47 AM

I have the EXACT same problem, and have tried dozens of different goggles, most of which end up in the kids' gearbags because I can't stand the nose pinch and obstructed breathing. The absolute best goggles i have ever used for this, and please don't ... more »

Added reply in a thread I Need a History Lesson (Arroyo Cyclepark/ Glen Helen) 5/26/2021 12:25 PM

Cycle News West archives should have a ton of old race reports, results, ads, etc. from the Arroya days (back in the '70s).

Is this real, or photoshop?

Added reply in a thread New bike tomorrow.. 350 or 450 4/30/2021 7:15 PM

I think that’s a great choice, personally. I’m 60 this year and have zero issues racing a CRF450R. As others have said, you control the bike. Enjoy the new ride!!!

Wow, Jett is a bit of a snowflake!

Added reply in a thread WD40 for chain lube 4/22/2021 8:35 AM

Back in the late '70s or early '80s, we did a study at Dirt Bike Magazine and found that a chain with WD-40 on it actually ran hotter than just a dry chain with no lube. Interesting stuff. But as many others have already said, I use WD-40 after a wash, ... more »

Stop just miss watching him rip up the 'Dunes on his yellow and black Yamaha, in that faded yellow Yamaha jersey..............or is that me?!?!?! LOL, I Love Jim, he's always been a great interview, and I think is even better now then he was ... more »

Added reply in a thread Carlsbad "Replica" Track 4/6/2021 2:13 PM

Thanks, at least I feel a little better! I still can’t visualize the entire Carlsbad track, but I can feel the blue groove now!

Added reply in a thread Carlsbad "Replica" Track 4/5/2021 3:08 PM

That is awesome, thanks! I wondered where that replica track was! For some reason thought it was like Cuhilla Creek or something. Does anyone have anything like this from the original Carlsbad? It's been so long since I raced there (41 years) and I can't ... more »

Added reply in a thread Returning to riding after 16yr hiatus 4/4/2021 7:45 AM

Awesome! As others have said, training is the key, ANT type of training, including riding! And the weight will come down, guaranteed! But enjoy yourself, be safe, and watch out for the bugs on your teeth from smiling while you ride!

What in the Wild Wild West is goin’ on here???

Added reply in a thread History of Can Am in supercross? 3/27/2021 6:54 PM

I think you’re right! Greg Robertson sounds right, as does Joe Root! Man, it’s been awhile! Too many concussions since then, LOL! But weren’t those the days?!?! I think that coliseum race I got Bob Hannah’s jersey after practice! I also remember getting ... more »

Added reply in a thread How does it feel to make your first main event?! 3/18/2021 5:44 PM

I had no idea who Cros was, but after that vlog, I'm a fan! And I don't speak Spanish either! LOVE the comradery and emotion that little team has, that language is UNIVERSAL, and I look forward to rooting for them every week!

Added reply in a thread TM talk time!!! 3/18/2021 5:10 PM

As far as customer service and attention goes, you will never beat Ralph Schmidt (TM Importer in California)--I've called him with questions on an old TM125 I have, and he's always helpful, gets detailed about what parts I need and where to find them,

Added reply in a thread History of Can Am in supercross? 3/18/2021 3:36 PM

I used to watch Donnie Hansen and Greg Root race their Colbe Can-Ams every Friday night at Indian Dunes. Those two were FAST on the orange bikes! Donnie seemed fastest on the 250, Root did better on the 400. I wanted that bike the rest of my life! The ... more »

Added reply in a thread 30+ ab, 30+ cd, 35+, 40+ab and 40+cd is stupid 3/18/2021 11:16 AM

Maybe OP is referring to the Moto Masters series here in TX? That’s a series where the youngest class is 25+, no mini classes. Class structure serves two purposes-1) you can ride in more than one class against similar skilled and aged riders, and 2) ... more »

Added reply in a thread Agree or Disagree with Ken fist bumping Webb after the race 3/18/2021 11:03 AM

Kenny is a class act, watch the way he passes people. He doesn’t always ride them high into a tough block, but mostly turns down underneath them for a clean pass with little to no contact. The fist bump fits his style and character.
