Reply to Kawasaki Team mates AC & Eli 5/26/2020 6:18 AM

Serious question--has Eli had a problem passing AC this year? I don't recall a race specifically, so I'm asking how likely this scenario will even be.

Reply to Do You Think These Unprecedented Sunday/Wednesday SX TV Broadcasts, Will Bring Us Zillions Of New Fans ? 5/24/2020 4:38 PM

Well, since the morans that run SX decided to go head to head with NASCAR on May 31st instead of keeping a night show to follow them and bring those fans over, I'd say we don't get any kind of a bump from this. Too bad, but SX is just run by folks that ... more »

That bike sounds like it’s about to blow up!

Reply to Ryan Hughes Podcast about Life Changing Events 5/20/2020 9:07 PM

I read the first part of this thread a couple days ago, then had to listen to Ryan on the Pulp show from a couple weeks ago to compare what I was reading to how he actually sounded. Being an old, fairly conservative guy, I don't agree with trying hallucinogenic ... more »

Reply to Texas Showdown Curren Thurman takes 3of 4 motos and 1 dnf while leading 5/18/2020 11:21 AM

What's Thurman doing the rest of the year? Saw him destroy the Pro class at Freestone a couple years ago, then didn't see much of him, and really expected him to be out there with John Short. That guy can absolutely fly around a track (and makes me feel ... more »

Tried watching the NASCAR race yesterday, but without fans, with everyone in masks, no personal interaction or facial expressions, there was just no atmosphere brought out that makes a race a race. I really hope I don’t have the same feeling Sunday night ... more »

Dave, my friend, I think you're way out of line here. I didn't get that at all from his post. Maybe allow for a differing of opinion than yours?

Reply to Weege just Hit the Nail Squarely on the Head... 5/13/2020 4:13 PM

What I find ironic is that this cognitive bias argument seems to negate the process of gathering the facts / information and forming a conclusion all together (I'll call it "Critical Thinking"). If I listen to all sides, gather the info, then form my ... more »

Reply to Austin Area MX tracks re-opening 4/22/2020 5:07 PM

Any word on 3 Palms?

Reply to States w/ Tracks Open 4/14/2020 5:35 AM

Some Texas tracks are still open. Three Palms in Conroe has a "reservation system" to limit the total number of riders, but that mainly comes into play on weekends. Further up north, Athens MX is open, check their facebook page.

He looks sick.....

Reply to Why do you ride? 3/21/2020 5:13 PM

First and foremost, I ride / race because I love to be "in the arena." I ride for the thrill of "risking it" which I never understood nor grew out of. I love overcoming fear, of winning a race, or just putting in a huge effort that others outside of ... more »

Reply to Dungey done with Geico Honda 2/26/2020 7:04 PM

This is easy--he wanted to go out on top! Sexton won in Arlington, go out a winner!

Reply to the lack of chest protectors 2/24/2020 9:31 AM

I’m a fan of the Leatt, with shoulder protection. Agree it’s personal preference, but I gotta be at work on Monday as well!

Awesome to see, Hayle! Thought I recognized some Rio Bravo track in there too? Hope to see you out and the track and shake your hand!

Reply to Webb crash, condition update? 2/23/2020 5:27 AM

So glad Webb is OK! Love his hard charging, never give up attitude, and he SHOULD give it up to the Lord! He’s a lucky man, that’s for sure!

How do we follow these races (from a non-GP follower, sorry)?
