First, I have to get used to no more 70's hairdo. We all used to run our hair like yours used to be, if you MX'd, you needed to have the hair out the helmet. You rocked it.
You are so lucky to get the newest stuff 1st, but you have earned it. Your description is so good, so detailed, of the little nuances that make the differences, that you are to me the best out there right now. That is saying a lot. Great Job.
Now if you got to keep a bike for months and make adjustments and race it every week we could learn even more.
You have reaffirmed what most suspected, this bike is an evolution forward of a top performer.

Cycle Ranch or Swan would be good Texas venues. I see MX Sports already has the Underground on the schedule for ATV Nationals, so they may have an in if the MX nationals ever come back. We can't even cover the U.S, I don't know why we would go to Canada? ... more »

Thanks for that review. With the price drop, and white plastic, these things are going to start multiplying like rabbits.

Here's a little test from some guys right down the road from me here in Austin. They have a training facility and the rider is Tyler Livesay. TJ Cycles is the dealer and I got a short ride on the bike at the Fly Funday, and it was smooth as silk. http://www.themxfactory.com/ ... more »

One thing he hasn't done yet is win. Another is crash on that arm. Another is get stuffed by a rider. I wouldn't want to be the rider that takes out Humpty Dumpty.

When you figure the Honda 450 has dual exhaust and spring forks it starts to make more sense. KTM uses paper thin tubes also. https://motocrossactionmag.com/what-the-2017-motocross-bikes-really-weigh/ The weights are for '17's, and since Yamaha and Honda ... more »

Yes, this new format has a terminology problem. How can there be 6 "Main" events? They are no longer significant as a "main" when there are 6 of them. In threads here they are already being referred to(correctly) as "Moto's". And just like outdoors, ... more »

It's bad enough that you are on Huffpo, but now you want all of us to go? JK, I'm sure you were only doing opposition research. The Admins can see what website you visit before and after Vital you know? They probably get some good late night entertainment

It has always been that way, If there are 22 qualified for the night show, and when they fill the gates only 20 show up, they will call for the 23rd and 24th qualifiers. If they don't show up, the 25th and 26th are called and so on. They may even use ... more »

I appreciate everyone speaking out, and unofficially the count is like 37 against and 11 for (if you don't do but 1 drop and not this year). I wish some would have spoken a bit more about why not rather than just no. I suspect most feel that the "purity" ... more »

Yes, this weekend is the most important of the format changes that took a long time to arrive. We may not be done with future changes, but I am glad to see them trying something new. We could all find lots of negatives, but the positive is we won't have ... more »

This is really taking the perceived drama out of this weekend. Imagine how good it makes us feel about 20 minute races having an upset winner.

Added reply in a thread SX throw out your 2 worst finishes? 1/16/2018 11:47 AM

1. The whole point is to provide for injuries, how could they race? 2. Agreed. (the final 3 could be the triple crown?) 3. I believe we would have seen a more aggressive Dungey if he knew he had 2 throw away's. Thanks for having an open mind. I assume ... more »

As we saw in the interview, Mookie is excited about his chances (as he joked tongue in cheek about his lack of endurance). Freise used to be a good starter. He'd be lucky to hang onto a podium even with a holeshot and the whole pack crashing behind him ... more »

Everyone is fine with a 250 class, and even split it into East and West, and I'm the one into participation trophies?

Added reply in a thread SX throw out your 2 worst finishes? 1/16/2018 7:38 AM

You are right, it's not enough. Perhaps the last 3 races could not be thrown out. 1 year out of the last 11 we have a close finish and everyone is happy with that? Dozens of riders on the injured list that sit out the rest of the season and that is OK ... more »

Really nice idea. Good luck with it.
