Reply to Kehoe Retires From Honda 9/21/2021 9:48 AM

First I heard of Erik Kehoe was about 40 years ago when he was a long-haired kid ripping a YZ80 in magazine photos. I idolized him of course- dude is as old-school moto as it gets. His retirement is well-earned.

I was just sitting down to watch some old Hangtown nationals. Or maybe catch up on a couple of motos I missed this year. And I was just watching some Australian Parliament, so it was easy to read your whole post imagining an Australian accent.

Ah shit! This was a great story until the last part. Especially since I am building the dream bike of my youth, an 82 RM125. I have seen guys on first rides after a long lay-off get hurt before- it happens, but still sucks to hear.

I still ride and race at 54, but I have been very sporadic lately. Sometimes it seems like so much effort to get the bike ready, load up, drive to the track and all that, especially when its 110 degrees in the sunlight. I feel lazy and lame about it, ... more »

Is there an archive of this? I don't have a Facebook account.

Reply to Did I hear a 2-stroke at Hangtown, who? (450 class) 9/14/2021 6:46 PM

I did see a KTM two-stroke in the pack at the race. Must be him. It was great to hear!

I don't think he was talking about SF when he's talking about NorCal moto. Come out to the Sierras on a Saturday morning and every third truck has dirt bikes in the back. You can ride in the mountains all over the place, at least for now, and plenty ... more »

I'll be there with my 7-year-old daughter. I hope they have the Red Bull sandpit this year, that's the main attraction of the race for her.

He could qualify at Budd's, of that I have little doubt. He could run top 10 or even top 5 for a handful of laps, but would fade due to conditioning. I'd put him in the top 20- the dude still hauls ass on a dirt bike.

Reply to Premier Class? 250 Fastest at Budds Creek 8/24/2021 9:16 AM

This is why Beasley doesn't allow 250s to run in the 450 classes in amateur races. Remember RV2 spanking the world on a 250F here at the MXDN? Maybe it's all those low-rpm off-cambers. But Budds also has massive hills where you would think a 450 would ... more »

My bad, DV. Apologies.

Reply to Budd's Creek track changes (or lack thereof) 8/19/2021 12:49 PM

They did move the start twice. It's a pretty iconic track so I guess they just stick with the way it is. Maybe there are limited ways you could lay it out on that piece of land.

Reply to RC4's numbers are insane 8/19/2021 12:41 PM

I heard RC say in an interview that he didn't mean to whip it this hard- his back wheel slid on the takeoff and he thought he was gonna crash. Photo is sick

Were you the one who made the silly Youtube video on this topic, saying that Hughes had raced an old CR in the Nationals (it was Loretta's)?

Reply to Osbornes replacement rumour... 8/18/2021 11:17 AM

I like DV and I definitely like my beer, but he sounded so sloshed on Pulp that it was a distraction.

If you think something is wrong with that photo you must be an unimaginable prude with values right out of the Middle Ages.

A much more important question in my mind is, what is the best gift he ever bought her?
