I was going to buy a KTM 150 but the dealer (a good buddy so I wasn’t going elsewhere) didn’t have one but he is also a TM dealer so I ordered a 144. Great bike - glad I bought it. Engine, suspension, and handling all top notch with excellent quality ... more »

Hockey bag for about $40. It even has the team Canada logo on it. No compartments or anything fancy. Plenty of ventilation when I unzip it.

My son only started getting interested in motocross when he was 17 (putted around a bit on a TTR 125 before that). He got the hang of my 250f pretty well, tried out my 350 on which he quickly became overconfident, hit too big a jump with more speed than ... more »

Added reply in a thread Poll - Changing Up Votes and Down Votes 6/20/2022 9:19 AM

I'd say no change. I think it's odd to be offended by down votes. If nobody ever disagrees with you, you're probably not saying anything interesting.

Of course RC is knowledgeable - there’s no disputing that. Not everyone who’s knowledgeable is articulate and RC isn’t especially articulate. Both is, of course, ideal, but if I was to choose one, I’d go for knowledgeable.

I didn’t know that. It’s seriously messed up that a company can basically just go on screwing people over.

Exactly. My wife dealt with something similar and Visa helped her out.

David Bailey. Smooth, surgical precision. At my age, just back it off by 10% to stay safe and still smoke everybody!

Sucks but probably wise. Hope he comes back 100%.

Buy a TM from a dealer that knows what he's doing and just ride it!

I know I'm being a bit of a dick - but from the other direction - because I was annoyed with the ridiculous attitude the OP was getting. A guy raises a completely reasonable question, along with a reasoned argument for why he thinks it's a question worth ... more »

What you have there is an argument against unnecessary air travel (or at least a reason to not live near an airport. Living near an airport is demonstrably unhealthy. A key bit from the article linked here: “Children can suffer substantial and long-lasting ... more »

By “sentence” you mean “paragraph”. The spacing indicates it is an independent thought, not part of the train of thought preceding it. In any event, I get your point. If all that happened was a ban on bringing it to the races, then that would be pointless. ... more »

The replies in this thread are mind-numbingly stupid. There’s “not many people use it”. Ok, then keep pouring C12 into junior’s bike, evidence of harm be damned (is there really any dispute about the harmful effects of lead?). There’s “you idiot, you ... more »

This really isn’t a stupid question to ask. What is stupid is saying something like “other things are dangerous so why worry about this dangerous thing “?

This isn't to defend Varner - it's a more general point. Don't try to judge someone's mental health by how they look. I've gone through suicidal depression, to the point of being hospitalized, and most people had no idea because I "looked fine" (now ... more »

Contracts can be amended if both parties are in agreement. This is a non-issue.
