I don't know why, but I'm just mad right now after watching that, then learning the poor guy passed away. Prayers for his wife and kids, that just sucks so bad. I have to believe something went wrong either mechanically or weather / wind wise, because ... more »

How does this guy Stralo, with a 2:15.3 in 450 Group B quali 2 not make the show? He should be 31st fastest qualifier on combined page.

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 »

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 »

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!!!

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 »

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 »

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!
