I started putting the bug in my wifes ear about 8 months before I pulled the trigger on the new ride. But luckily, being the awesome wife she is, she understood and was also in my life as my girlfriend a few years before my femur injury. She loved coming

I recently just got back into riding MX after 10 years off a bike. My hiatus was after another brutal injury where I compound fractured my femur which left me in the hospital for 10+ days and a year of hard physical therapy. I'd already had my knee reconstructed ... more »

DC is spot on. I'm a little disturbed by this thread. Don't get me wrong, I love beautiful women and all...but jeezus guys. These ladies are your sisters, daughters, mothers. Do you talk about them like this? Take a moment and reflect before going full ... more »

Would also love a show with Roncada and Windham. But I'd really love to hear Ping and GL shoot the shit with Mike Metzger. His racing career, and pioneering FMX along with the ups and downs of his career, not to mention his love for art and mountain ... more »

Let's do it! I live in West Linn so we aren't too far apart. Always looking for good dudes to ride with. I'm planning on hitting Albany practice alongside Jeffro503 on Sunday, 9am-2pm. Good people. Never ridden Albany yet but stoked to try it out. PM ... more »

Love my '19 150SX. Learning curve to be sure in order to ride it to it's potential but man, always have a smile on my face especially screaming past a 4t making the rider look around like 'wtf was that!?".

Slavens HV Lectron carb on my 2019 150sx. Incredible. I'll leave it at that.

Reply to Am I the only one who can't ride a 450? 6/10/2019 9:52 PM

Never attempt to ride a 150sx. You'll know what 'hard to ride' really means until you learn how to ride it. 125, 250 2t's are cake imo compared to a 150. But once you know how to ride it and learn proper Moto technique, you'll be smiling after every ... more »

Reply to Would like to see wrist brace reviews 6/8/2019 9:34 PM

Mobius Wrist Brace has been a God-send for my wrist. Shattered my scaphoid 17 years ago and was in-operable. I'd say that that injury was way worse than compounding my femur in terms of long-term pain. Before the mobius there were days after riding long ... more »

Reply to Airstriker vs Lectron 5/21/2019 11:55 AM

I have a Slavens HV Lectron 38 on my 19 150SX. Completely transformed the bike for me. No bogging or blurb at crack of throttle and just rips now. More linear power than stock Mikuni but at the same time, bike just feels more powerful. I strictly ride ... more »

You're right. I stand corrected in regards to RV racing a 2t professionally.

Reply to Racer X - Ryan Villopoto 125 All Star Race Full Moto 5/20/2019 10:15 PM

The thing is, hardly any of the current 250f pros could beat RV on a YZ125 simply because they've gone from 2 stroke mini's straight to a 4t 250f and more than likely have forgot how much technique, precision, fitness and skill is required to ride a ... more »

That sound and technique...There is NOTHING better in motocross than ripping a 2-stroke. The sound, smell, feeling, racing, perfection you have to ride it with and thrill when you rip a lap screaming the motor. In my entire 20+ years of riding or racing ... more »

Awesome. You'll be amazed at how much the power valve can change the bikes power to exactly how you want it. Just remember, even quarter turns either way can drastically effect the way the power feels so its fun to go in or out quarter turns and spin ... more »

Reply to 49t sprocket on a TC125? 5/12/2019 10:00 PM

The power valve is incredible for tuning the delivery of power. I installed the Slavens HV Lectron with 2.1 Powercore silencer and 49 tooth rear sprocket (13/48 stock) on my 19 150SX and reset the power valve to 1.75 turns in and wow...made all the difference ... more »

I'm going to be that guy right now...Last weekend I put a Slavens HV Lectron on my '19 KTM 150SX and rode/raced it last night for the first time. F'ing incredible. Started on the first kick, adjusted idle and it was a fire breathing animal. Wheeling ... more »

See you on Saturday Jeff! Raced PIR tonight. The Lectron ran AMAZING on the '19 150SX. I on the other hand rode sub-par after being sick the past week. Just felt weak and out of sorts. Looking forward to meeting up. I'll hit you up on Saturday. Cheers ... more »
