You don't get more legendary than Dick Mann- RIP, champ.

I find it pretty amazing how the crowd got behind this kid so much- just goes to show a good personality makes all the difference. I'm 100% behind this guy because he's really humble and appreciative.

This is a good time to remind people how ridiculously good Blair was in his racing prime. If you have ever ridden an AX track you can understand how intense this is. https://youtu.be/qrFv31F6XOw

Well, that's ridiculous. He's made a lot of money and is married now so he's going to back it down? I doubt that's the case, and I certainly hope not. It's hard to imagine that was his mindset as he gave up a healthy lead and lost a key race that would ... more »

If we required every racer to be 100% healthy in order to race, we would have a very small field.

Roczen's mental formula and strength is perseverance, but when that doesn't work, he folds. It's kind of unbelievable- he had all the momentum and the points lead. Ever since Webb took him wide at Daytona he seems completely deflated and Webb has had ... more »

"We're going to rest up"- I'm finding it odd how every racer uses "we" do describe themselves these days (did Dungey start this?)

Added reply in a thread Oh Hell Yes, Todd DeHoop. 4/12/2021 4:49 PM

Hell yeah, you can't keep a champ down.

Added reply in a thread Osborne & Cianciarulo FRAUDS 4/9/2021 10:36 AM

Yeah, cause Osborne is so known for lacking desire and intensity.

I'll put it at 1985-86.

It was a scandal when moto tracks started putting in peaked doubles.

Added reply in a thread Locals price gouging used clapped bikes 4/2/2021 6:46 PM

I wonder what will happen to the millions of people on rent and utility bill moratoriums around the country all of a sudden have to pay thousands of dollars of back rent and bills (you know they haven't been saving money). This is billions of dollars ... more »

Glad I got by last bike free from a trash pile. I'd rather rebuild old two strokes than drop $10k on a new four-stroke.

Probably 80 percent of my feed is moto stuff. Even at 53 years old, it's damn thrilling when Johnny O' or Jeff Ward like my post! There are also a lot fewer poisonous political rants compared to FB, and a lot less negativity.

Facebook sucks, I left years ago. It's for idiots. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go check my Instagram and Twitter feeds.

There is no turning back the electrification tide, bros. In 30 years we'll be like the local steam engine club, parading our antique ICE

2035 is the inflection point and goal of many government policies.

Added reply in a thread Faster cornering techniques 3/25/2021 3:30 PM

Use a light touch on the front brake in rutted corners if your front wheel starts to pop out. Remember SLOTTH- "sit down, leg out, turn, throttle" Things can really only happen in that order.

Added reply in a thread Anyone notice a shift? 3/25/2021 11:45 AM

That is certainly a macro-level take on moto vs. off-road.

Interplanetary, even.

Added reply in a thread Faster cornering techniques 3/23/2021 12:51 PM

Sit down and turn in one motion- this helped me a great deal. Bonus- leave your clutch out, pulling it in makes you speed up when you're trying to slow down (David Bailey told me this one).

I can't think of an announcer or TV person that hasn't been eviscerated on this forum. If people ripped on RC, they'll rip on anybody.

Added reply in a thread Pulp MX Listeners. 3/18/2021 12:59 PM

I have been listening since the beginning and almost all the shows are good. Never really had a stinker- maybe one with B level guests or something, but it's consistently good. The classic ones in the archive with people like RJ, Dymond, Hannah etc. ... more »
