Reply to Going to Alabama, where should I stop to ride? 9/8/2021 10:22 AM

Monster is by far the best. War Eagle MX is sandy, but its pretty small and is really just a practice track, not that that is a bad thing. The guys that run it are awesome and they prep the track great.

Reply to Bring Freestone back this year? 6/3/2020 7:58 AM

Monster Mountain in AL. It should have been on the schedule for 25 years already since the day after Gatorback left.

Reply to Welcome back Ralph 1/28/2020 8:57 AM

Ralph has always sucked at anything but NASCRAP. In the late 90s-early 00s I raced jet skis on the national tour, Ralph was the TV guy for a few years and he was even worse at that than he is SX. Even when Fro was there, I cant tell you how many times ... more »

Reply to Hey Ping, you know who would be good for a 4 hour show? 5/8/2019 7:45 AM

I love the Whiskey Throttle show, but I really cant think of anyone in the moto industry that I would want less to hear talk for 4 hours than Jody.The guy is the moto version of those Washington DC reporters who think they are the story.

I never downplayed Herling's talent and speed, but I really thought Tomac would be close if not equal. Unless ET's bike problem caused him to be slower than he could have gone with a perfect bike even before it quit, I have to agree with RV, Herlings ... more »

Reply to If Anderson wins this title 4/15/2018 6:58 AM

Yes, I think Donnie Hansen is the most like Anderson, both were not rookies and probably considered threats to win races, but for sure not favorites to win the title.

Reply to If Anderson wins this title 4/15/2018 6:54 AM

If you want to go all the way back to the beginning, I think the most unlikely would be Jimmy Ellis in 1975 on the Can-Am, but SX was still more of a sideshow at that time. I would put McGrath in 1993 as less likely than Anderson this year also. If you ... more »

I dont really notice it other than the suspension works really really well. It pedals almost like an XC bike even with the shock wide open and it is capable enough on descents to race it in enduros, which I have done several.

Reply to Where'd your number come from? 12/9/2017 6:04 PM

Same here, 448 is the last 4 of my AMA number and they told me to use that. I used that for years until I started vintage racing they issued me 84c which I use now.

Reply to Ping says........(ok,ok...125s back at the Nationals) 11/19/2017 8:39 AM

Well, then Honda should take some of that money and make a 125 two stroke. Honda's (and other manufacturers) influence is exactly the problem.

Reply to Ping says........(ok,ok...125s back at the Nationals) 11/19/2017 7:53 AM

Who cares if a manufacturer wont "like it" just because they dont offer a product that fits the class? That is their business decision and it should have NOTHING to do with the racing rules. That is like saying Le Mans should shape their rules so there ... more »

Maybe the dumbest thing ever posted here, and that is saying a lot.

Reply to MXoN Matterley Basin Bench Racing - Sunday Races 10/1/2017 8:46 AM

Its starting to look like Matthes was right and USA should just stayed home and not even sent a team.

Rear suspension broke again on Seely.

Right, and other than the aluminum subframe and plastics there really is no difference '98-'04.

Reply to Spoiler alert! Moto 1 of the USGP will not be airing on TV! 9/3/2017 11:20 AM

Everyone who wrote Tomac and US motocross off after over reacting to last weekend is dumb. Likewise, everyone who is doing the opposite today, also dumb. Guys have good days, guys have bad days, GPs have some of the best riders in the world and AMA has ... more »

Reply to If he doesn't retire, will JS7 lose his number? 8/27/2017 2:36 PM

That is true, you never said you wanted them to let him keep his number but you said the AMA would "want to make him happy" which is preposterous.Before the drug suspension and he terrible results following that, I would agree, since then? No way, they ... more »
