Sarcastic ? a tad...but, I think Townley is the big money. Tedesco ? his results didn't get him the coin he had hoped for...DV12, same ticket. I think Honda has a motive. I tried to talk to Chuck Miller, Saturday, to see if he new anything, but the a ... more »

Jeff Alessi was to ride at TLD, but wanted ride a 450...my guess, Factory Honda picks him up, to ad to there their low budgit rider team !

Yeah...if anyone is willing to pay that, I'll sell them one for $8500, and make a grand ! I was offered one at dead nuts cost. But I refuse to pay for motorcycles. Dealers are shooting themselves in the foot, asking prices like that. The black will quickly ... more »

Hmm... Thank you, and I appreciate the offer, but I live in So Cal. and there is simply not enough time to hit all the events here. I am trying to find a date to have my Grand opening party, but all dates are race dates !!!

Awesome...congrats ! I am currently opening a shop as well. Actually, I have been working/planning for about 11 years. I am very meticulous, as to how my dealer will work. I searched for the perfect location, and found it, twice...missed the the sale ... more »

You don't \"break it to your wife\" Youi simply go get a new bike, if she has a problem with that, you simply get a new wife, that doesn't have a problem with a new bike. Motorcycles are not a life, they are a \"Life sentence\" ! Left mine seven years ... more »

Looks Like Townley will be on a 250 Honda, for Supercross...just heard the news from Mitch Payton. The good news is, we get to see the BT/RV battle again !

True that... To me, these guys are going so fast nowadays, that when they crash, each, and everyone, gets hurt. Gotta' keep the rubber side down.

Feeling okay ? No...I bumped my head this week end, drank too much, was hit by a train, and tripped over the cat ! When you speak of \"Newbies\" coming up, to race against Alessi, I see Ben Townley, as a threat, and Ivan Tedesco, both on a Honda. (providing ... more »

I have tried several different ways to quiet exhaust noise. I race a back yard Supercross (once in a while) on mini bikes, and it is required to be quiet. Anytime you block the direct exhaust you will have a quieter note, expect a power loss as well, ... more »

Hmm...A 450 will do you better, at Glen Helen. I suggest you try \"3 brothers racing\" in Costa Mesa. 949-642-0546, ask for Recardo Barbosa (owner) They are a KTM dealer. You can also try: www.motocrossvacation.com If that does not work, I may have a 2008 CRF450...I ... more »

I feel Ferry did a better job, than what Alessi could have provided. He (Ferry) did go 1-1 in the MX3/Open class. Can't do better than that ! Mike Alessi, thinks he is mentally ready, but I agree with you...he isn't. However, he is young, and has a few ... more »

He did as he needed to help USA win. The question was simply, after his recent results, was he the best man for the job ? Tim Ferry, is one of the strongest riders, but after his last few motos, it was asked, should have Alessi been the one to go ? However, ... more »

They (Villopoto & Townley) might be going head, to head, in Supercross, depends on which series they each run, East, or West. However, when the teams move to the \"Great Outdoors\", Townley, will be on a 450, Villapodium, remains on the 250.

I was all over the place on a Quad. Because of the high tempatures, we have to soak the surface with water. It has been said, that Glen Helen, uses as much water for the national as it does for the rest of the year. This causes hard, and soft, spots ... more »

I was thurst deep in the racing business, back in 1968. (age 11) My father was the creator of the Famous \"Barstow to Vegas\" Hare & Hound, desert race. I spent every Thanksgiving, in the desert. Back then we had 3000 entries, made $180,000.00 it ... more »

I don't want a pissing match here...I did say Reed was at Glen Helen practicing for the up-coming National. An he was. Every moto, I was on top of Mt. St. Helens (during the national) with Jim Perry the Yamaha team manager, not Reed's manager, but he ... more »

We changed that jump four times from Thursday, til Sunday...it was a pretty cool launch. The triple at the finish, also was changed a few times...it claimed a few bodies, Thursday, and Friday.
