This poll might actually show how short our memories are... no question that Zacho had an outstanding outdoor season and deserves huge credit. Was the outdoor series more difficult than the Supercross series? Not even close (IMO) The stop after Daytona then the wait... then they started outdoor training only to get whipped back into the SLC grind to finish the season ...it was the SX season of all SX seasons. Tomac won ...finally. So his outdoor series wasn’t what we expected, he won a few Motos and got back on form. Bottom line, Tomac is the Racer of the Year!!!

Yeah....I’m not buying that. I hear over and over by industry people “You’re only as good as your last race.” That clearly makes Zacho Husqvarna’s #1 Rider. Nobody buying a new dirt bike questions “who’s the guy on #16?” 4 Championships for Husky now all runnin’ #16, I think Zacho’s earned it. It’s just a huge oversight.

I think it looks great. I dig the black. Throw on black fork guards and a black front fender and it looks awesome!

So... why does this have Anderson’s number when Zacho won the Outdoor MX Champion? Also, in SX he had one less podium BUT had a win while JA’s had 0 wins, and likely would have finished ahead had he not gotten injured. Hmmmm.... This was a slap in the face to Osborne IMO. Anderson has been on cruise mode since his ‘18 SX title while Zacho been charging ahead. Bad on ya Husky!!!

The KLX looks so much like a Chinese bike. Wish they'd release a street legal more dirt oriented version of the KX250F and KX450F

Kawi is trying but I agree with queen of spodes...build and sale ssomething like the KTM EXC’s. Also bring back the KDX200!

This whole Big Announcement on Nov 23 has turned into a Big Disappointment! Lots of talk about a 700cc Real Adventure bike to replace the KLR650… Nope! Instead we get a low budget 300 tank. No thanks. Looks like I’m buying a Ténéré 700.

This is awesome! You should do this for every racer. I’d come here for historical info instead of just The Vault.

Throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s I don’t remember ever seeing a racer get their leg caught in the another racers rear wheel. I’ve seen it A LOT in the last few years. It’s not rocket science... KTM pioneered the slimmed down side plates in the mid/late 2000s and shortly there after all the Japanese brands followed suit. They almost look like a funnel into the wheel/swingarm now.

Bring back the full size side plates and save a bunch future racers some suffering. Of course it’s could still happen, but certainly a lot less.

Wow... looks like they did have a spot or Barcia. Good on Mookie!!! It will be interesting to see if the 450 guys get or carry over their own Gear deals (even though AP and Ferrandis both wear Thor) ...otherwise no more Seven Gear on Malcolm.

Calling riders 5’11” or shorter a “munchkin” would make anyone saying it sound overly egotistical about their own height. This should be obvious to you GripNRips. I would take the opinion of any one of these highly skilled riders over a guy just because he was 6’2” (which if you haven’t noticed is less common at the expert/pro level.) ...and no, I’m not short and I don’t take pride in my height.

Great test. I had to do a double take seeing Ping in Fly gear. Looks good!

Munchkins? Sounds like you have a superiority complex due to your height. All these guys are between 5’7” and 5’11” ...all right in the bell curve for the majority of riders. Besides, I seriously doubt adding a 6’2” guy would change the results. ...and don’t worry, in time you’ll shrink.

Looks to be a Factory part. They’re sponsored by SBS Brake pads and Braking For their Rotors, but it’s not a Braking caliper. The team also has 3 CNC/fabricator/Metal works sponsors listed which could have made it. Regardless, it looks to not be available to the public.

Going up a tooth on the counter is (actually) like going down 3.5 teeth in the rear
