Sooner than later, I'm going to give it a shot. When I do, I'll follow my grandfather and father's moral compass. Bank on it. What could be more rad than a dude in office who rips on a motocross bike? But back to the thread, shit ain't ok.

I realize that I posted to say no more on this thread about this topic, but I want too, respectfully, state three more points that I left out in my original post... First, the fact that people are rioting, looting and burning shit is NOT ok. But to be ... more »

I'm going to post one time, and one time only on this subject. I'm a white man. My father was a police officer for 30 years...well respected by his entire department as a man of discipline, empathy and who never wavered from his North Star about honor ... more »

Interesting you say that your 150 has vibration in the pegs and bars? I don't feel that at all on mine. Have you gone over every bolt to make sure nothing is loose?

Reply to 2019 KTM 150sx questions 5/21/2020 10:26 PM

The 150 has more torque, and low end grunt. However, it doesn't rev as far or long as a 125. The 150 is a rocket ship if you keep it in the meat of the power, and by meat I mean a very thin slice of within gears. If you wait to long or shift a second ... more »

Like most of the posts above, KEEP the 125 and learn to ride it so fast and hard until the wheels fall off. If you can rip a 125 around balls-out, you'll jump on a 250f and feel like a super hero. But being a super-hero on a 125 sure sounds and feels ... more »

The Drop Frame Pro has MIPS.

I picked up the Fox Drop Frame recently and really like it. More coverage than the SpeedFrame. I took a good digger onto the side of my head few weeks back and was super happy I had the protection over my ears. Think my ear would of ripped off if I didn't

Myself, working in the creative industry feel fortunate that I left the 'advertising industry' over 15 years ago (there's a difference). But from working in the advertising world before I became completely disgusted by it, I can assure everyone that ... more »

Yeah, the arthritis is REAL. Like I noted in post above, 17 years post shattering (I'm 39 now) the arthritis has kicked in and sucks. My wrist actually feels thicker and more "firm" if you will than my non-broken side when I squeeze it from top to bottom. ... more »

Reply to Question about cornering technique 5/15/2020 1:01 PM

"Also point toe in to avoid injury"... THIS is a critical part if you have your leg out. Toes should be pointing towards your forks or fender and leg as high up locked into the shroud as possible. By pointing your toe in, it actually allows more of the ... more »

Shattered my scaphoid 17 years ago. Couldn't even pin the sucker together it was so grenaded. Luckily it 'healed' but it took 6 months or so and the bone looks like a deformed golf ball now. Still hurts to this day and lost a good deal of flexibility ... more »

I'm confused... The image posted for GasGas...where is the rear linkage? On the KTM...where is the rear spring?

Wow. These are incredible. I read WWII history religiously and have always been fascinated by it. My grandfather, John MacGillivray (whom my son is named after) was a purple-heart decorated Marine who fought in the Pacific theater as a radioman. He fought ... more »

When you go to Home Depot or Walmart, there are clear rules and guidelines allowing you to stay at a distance from other shoppers. When you're getting your hair cut, you have someone literally breathing over your shoulder, dude. Get it?

Great, science-driven read on Covid. It's deep, but fascinating. Well worth the time. Here:

I run an FMF pipe and 2.1 silencer on my 19 150. I like it a lot. Found that the FMF pipe added a (slightly) broader power all around than the stock pipe. I threw my Mikuni away and got a HV Lectron w/ V4 reed block. I'll never take it off. That gave
