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.

I said "one" of the biggest comebacks. I didn't definitively say that it is the biggest comeback in the history of motorsports. There are plenty of great comeback stories out there, including the ones that you mentioned.

Yep, I know the tool, this is definitely a tough industry to break into. I would take it to market myself directly and build it slowly, no other company will have your vision for the product and how to present it. They will also never have your passion for the product and the benefits it presents. All I know about MP is they squash me on the teams all the time. I have had a couple team sponsorships where the tool never got promoted because MP was also a sponsor and obviously has way more money than me in the game. Factory KTM off-road buys at least 6 of these a year for the team but if I mention it on my site they make KTM call and take it down within hours. Sucks being a little fish in a big pond but you gotta start somewhere;-)

No worries Michael, you are an experienced rider and know your numbers. I just like to make sure less experienced riders and parents understand this from the start so they have a solid foundation to find their own numbers. Thanks for all the kind words, it means a lot to me that you guys use and like Slacker so much! Hope you have a great Christmas!

I will admit the feedback was harsh and I didn't take any satisfaction, I just felt It was warranted in this particular case. VitalMx is not just a small blog and has real influence in the industry and hope the standard of content will improve. I've been in your shoes (Former online publisher with 15mil monthly pageviews) and understand your plight well. Cheers

Great review Michael,

I appreciate your candor about the RMZ in pointing out the areas that will require setting changes and so forth. I anticipate that a lighter engine with electric start would bring the bike to a more competitive weight and features with Husqvarna and KTM, but it was not in the budget for 2018.

As one of the honest members of the media, you have one of the most difficult jobs in MX journalism and testing. A manufacturer or company invites you test their new machine, and then you ride it and give them the honest answer. The honest answer actually serves the manufacture better than pandering, but it does have to be a bit difficult. Ex. Thanks for in the invite, but your bike needs work.

The stakes being that readers can sense when a tester is hyping a product to draw in an advertiser and you loose credibility, therefore they no longer read your report. On the other hand, you provide an honest review with negative aspects and the manufacturer or advertisers no longer invite you back.

It's all about the delivery of the message and your craft at doing so is exceptional.

I enjoyed the review.
