We'll I'm not saying pack your bags, but the new mask "guidance" is being taken literally and store owners are re-imposing the mask mandate in my town. Even left leaning CNN is doing a "WTF" on the new mask mandates. Apparently there is a low probability ... more »

There is an amateur race this weekend, promoter had water issues but seems to have been reconciled. Hard working guys always seem to manage difficulty.

Added reply in a thread You're the designer of Triumph, with a clean sheet of paper. What do you do? 7/23/2021 9:22 AM

I like the dark green approach you are going for. Triumph is a "premium" brand to start with on the level of the Factory/Works edition from KTM/Honda. Definitely not a GasGas type entry. Top of the line WP cone valve/KYB spring/ Ohlins suspension. 350 ... more »

Added reply in a thread First photo of Triumph’s new motocross bike 7/21/2021 8:39 AM

I remember the quote from Pastrana that he was 1-2 seconds slower on a DRZ400 than his RM250. Funny how the best riders can ride past old hardware. Also I have huge respect for those Triumph MX bikes above. Going beyond the norm to to create something ... more »

Added reply in a thread Kailub Russell calling it quits 7/20/2021 7:33 PM

Kailub said directly in the video that Roger called him up and said they'd need to re-evaluate. He said he was pissed at first and the rest of the IG video he looked upset. Certainly you'd think the call from Roger should have been more supportive, and ... more »

MXGP-TV.com and Paul Malin taking over US Motocross coverage from NBC/Peacock. Blended MXGP / US Nationals / Supercross racing 2x per week forever. Careers shorted to 3 years, not continuous due to injuries obviously. / sarcasm

Added reply in a thread Is this the Greatest Dirt Bike of All Time? 7/15/2021 7:12 PM

It was further ahead of its competitors than any other bike today or since. Power, handling, stability, turning, reliability way ahead. Weird but smart gull wing triple clamps for more fork tube overlap. Larger stiffer forks than the other bikes. Just ... more »

Added reply in a thread Cramping in throttle hand 7/15/2021 8:12 AM

Bound the problem. Can you ride slower without a problem, or is it so fundamental that just time on the bike induces the problem. If it's speed related, probably death grip. If time related, cockpit ergos.

Added reply in a thread CA 2 stroke ban 7/12/2021 9:17 AM

Yes, the ban sucks but doesn't affect MX at this time for me. Even in Prairie City OHV, the Hangtown track is unaffected by Red/Green sticker within the fenced track boundary. Sort of funny - two stroke/red sticker four stroke on this side of the fence ... more »

Added reply in a thread Is Tomac about to go on a streak of wins? 7/12/2021 4:51 AM

I like watching Dylan ride off the clutch and managing the race. With so much skill he still was going very fast, adapting, and passed Kenny without any drama. Would have been nice if Tomac would have been able to do the same last year in the mud and ... more »

If Ferrandis's bike let loose and came to a grinding halt we'd all be complaining that we missed the championship leader and a major moment in the championship. Especially after AP's bike failure (damn - that was hurtful to his overall standings). As ... more »

I was there in 2011 on a "bucket list" race (I'm from Ca) dropping off my son for college in NY. Hurricane came through, still went to race in the rain. Remember the anxiety Dungey had waiting on the starting line without his bike as the pack took off. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Only Yamaha is left (2022 Model Release) 7/8/2021 8:06 AM

Looks like Yamaha is serious about strengthening the bridge from 65-85-125-250F-450f lifecycle planning on their brand. YZ250 is really not in that path so I can see them delaying (forever) 250 updates if good but not great reaction to 125. If 125 are ... more »

It's starting to look like the Euro's (and one Aussie) are coming to the US to show the 'mericans how to ride like it was the 70's. If we are lucky it will spark interest again.
