Rail the wide lines, and race like you're practicing and this is the type of stuff that happens. The guy on the blue bike came to race. Watch Cooper Webb when he's protecting his position. He rides tight low lines. Works the middle to inside of the track. ... more »

Reply to Bernard Kerr: World Cup DH racer wants to race SX 12/17/2019 6:51 PM

Riding and racing.... they're two different things. I think he would be shocked at how fast local B riders are, let alone the guys in the night show at a supercross. He's a beast on a bicycle and appears to be a decent B level rider at moto. Still not ... more »

Reply to Best rider to put in the least amount of effort (training etc) 12/7/2019 4:50 PM

Ron Lechien won a 250 SX (premier class) at the age of 16 in the most competitive time of the sport. That would be like a kid like Jett Lawrence winning a 450 Main last year. Talent to burn would be an understatement.

Reply to More front end traction.... 12/2/2019 1:57 PM

It isn't in your head. I had been running mine way too tight on my Honda. Loosened them up and its like a whole different bike. Unreal.

Reply to How would you feel if you bought this bike? *Important Update* 11/14/2019 6:12 PM

Wow. He basically sold you a frame with some plastic hung on it. .....or maybe the frame is wrenched and you just don't know it yet.

Reply to JS 7's influence, where are the young black guys in mx/sx? 10/13/2019 5:16 PM

It would have been interesting if RC would have stayed a few more years.

Reply to Cooper Webb?? 10/9/2019 5:56 PM

Lol.... if message boards existed from 1989-1992 guys like you would have been saying that that Stanton guy cruised to 6 titles .....got lucky. Ward was old, Bradshaw was a basket case, Bayle didn't care....yada yada. Jeff Stanton just got lucky "6 Time"s. ... more »

Reply to Were those last generation HRC CR 250's really that good? 10/9/2019 4:26 AM

The 02-04 Honda had the pro style mid to top engine. I had an 03 that was very fast if you knew how to ride it..... if you tried to lug it like a novice it was shit. In 05 Honda changed the engine to give it more low end and better suit the masses, but ... more »

Reply to Why didn’t we send our GNCC riders to the MXON.? 10/5/2019 7:35 AM

Britian did send that crazy Watson guy. He didn't do too bad.

Reply to MXoN - Raceday Discussion 9/29/2019 3:44 PM

Let's just be honest about it.... the Americans just don't have the bike skills that they used to. At one time it didn't matter if it was hard pack in France, Dutch sand or foot peg deep mud, they knew what to do. In 1987 three guys from Southern California ... more »

Reply to Justin Cooper interview - I’m ready to race now! 9/28/2019 1:19 PM

Sometimes I think ignorance is bliss. I think Justin really believes what he says about himself and as long as you believe in yourself that's all that really matters. I think it comes off as arrogant.... but I think he is just speaking of himself how ... more »

Reply to Herlings vs Justin Cooper in Europe (video) 9/21/2019 3:59 PM

I love the videos, but I still think the US guys are sitting down too much. When they were at Lommel the local kid was standing just above his seat on the pegs railing the whooped out sweepers.... Jason and Zack would sit and put their leg out in the ... more »

Reply to Team USA First Look in Europe 9/11/2019 8:20 PM

Those guys are living experiences that will better them and they will remember for forever. We constantly hear the broken record on here say, "would you work for free??....yada yada...." sometimes the gain isn't always monetary. I always like to search ... more »

Reply to Herlings 9/8/2019 2:33 PM

You realize that RC beat Everts in the Belgian sand at the 2003 MXDN right? Herlings might possibly be the best ever in the sand, but absolutely no way he would lap RC. I would bet that RC would actually dog Jeffrey all day into a big mistake.... which ... more »

Reply to Working clutch for the CRF450R 2017-2020 8/21/2019 7:51 PM

35 hours on my 2018. (I know, I don't get to ride enough) Clutch is fine. I give it stab here and there. Stock oil amount. You guys who barbecue clutches must be riding in 4th gear and slipping it around the whole track. It ain't a 125.

Reply to Plessinger......what’s the deal there? 8/11/2019 7:58 AM

Basically. They can literally build a frame for sand, one for hardpack, and whatever else the rider wants.
