In 2011, I was 180 lbs (I'm 5' 5") and couldn't bend over to tie my shoes. So, went on a "traditional" calorie limited diet and exercised a LOT. I rode my MTB, hiked with a pack every weekend, and so forth. I got down to 161 lb and could NOT break 160. ... more »

Red Canyon? We'll be there Friday night. We'll have 2 KTM's and 1 Husky TE 150. I'll be in a white Chevy with a topper, towing a flat bed trailer and we'll be staying with our friend in his Coleman camper towed by a Ford F250. Stop by if you see us.

As you say, everyone's different. That kind of breakfast will leave me hungry and jittery after 3 hours. I'm pretty sure carbs spike my blood sugar and push me pretty close to a diabetic stage and I do better away from them. Plus they give me gas and ... more »

I've got the Leatt 3DF, too. Like it a lot. I like having elbow guards because so many of my crashes are low-sides or what-not where I scrape my forearms in the dirt. Had one of the early RXR's and I felt like the Pillsbury Dough Boy. Never really bounced ... more »

Same here... 3 piece collarbone, plated and screwed. I was "on the bike" 5 weeks after surgery, but that was putting around the yard. SOB really hurt and it was a good solid 8 weeks before I was ready to ride. Of course, that's at 56 years old. I suppose

I never ride w/out padded shorts. I have 3 sets that I rotate around, all with padded crotch, tailbone, and hip pads. I forgot all 3 pairs once and felt terrible w/out them. For chest, I like either a Leatt Airlight suit or I'll take the front and shoulder ... more »

Hare scramble.... pace yourself!!!! Take the first lap fairly easy. Don't take the same line as everyone else because someone will fall in front of you. I like to go into turns on the outside, look across the turn, see what's ahead, and plan my next ... more »

Remember when RC took out Pastrana?!? Sheesh.... I thought the crowd was gonna tar and feather him and then hang him from the dome rafters.

That's amazing that it sat at the dealership that long. One of KTM's most popular bikes and they couldn't/didn't sell it? How come?

Okay... here's the KX. When we got it, there was not a single spec of dirt on it. I've put 3.5 h on it already (and we're finding loose bolts all the time- see under the fender... it was laying on the ground next to the bike). Those are the original

Just to update... I was all set to get either the '19 or '20 and then found a '15 with, literally, 3 hours on it. I took the seat off to look at the air filter and there was not a speck of dust to be found. Old guy (80 yr old) bought it, rode it up and ... more »

My son and I talked seriously about owning a 125 from everyone, but we ride too much enduro/off-road and would still have to have other other bikes. As far as brand, I'm a slut. I like 'em all. I want to ride them all and see what they've got to offer. ... more »

Plus it's wrong.... 'cause if you start with $2 million and MAKE $1 million, that's a pretty good ROI!!!! Sign me up for that. If you start with $2 million and END UP with $1 million.... bad ROI.

Once again, I solve the whole Announcer Problem by turning the sound off and playing guitar during the races. I don't get annoyed and I get a lot of practice in.
