I run them as a spare wheelset for my bike (KTM 300XC-W). As you can imagine, I don't pound them in MX. Purely offroad and mostly hard enduro at that point. No issues at all though. They work great and have held up well through rocks.

I understand your position on the subject and appreciate someone from your position responding to a random Vital poster! As an AMA promotor that put on a national-level event this year, I just don't have the time to chase everyone down that wears a helmet ... more »

Simple statistics really. 990/1000 riders using cameras put them on their helmets while 10/1000 put them on their chest. The chance of seeing catastrophic damage from a large majority is greater, while the acute minority is rather benign. Not advocating ... more »

So what happens when people running cameras on their chest break their sternum and/or xiphoid process, which can also kill you?

I use THIS stuff. Works better than any method I've ever tried since the late 90's with bike graphics. I never have any issues with bubbles or corners coming up. I wouldn't use anything else at this point!

Added reply in a thread Leaving Mote due to injury, alternatives? 6/27/2020 7:02 PM

Since you're in England, I'd recommend observed trials and hard enduro. The enduro will keep you in shape and it's much safer than MX.

Added reply in a thread Will the nationals actually go ahead? 6/27/2020 5:30 AM

That is absolutely false. Working with insurers for our event, it was noted that anyone that had COVID after the event would never be able to trace it back to the event and put liability on the promoter/organizer. That possibility had no bearing on obtaining ... more »

I ordered one of the Lock-n-Load Pro systems for my toy hauler. They are back ordered until June 22nd. They better be good for the price! If they're good, I'm going to spread the cost over a few months!

It is a Toy Hauler - XLR NITRO 23KW. My goal is not to use any tie downs.

The wife and I just bought a toy hauler and I'm looking at the different ways to secure the bike without taking up too much room. What does everyone here use? I'm leaning towards the rather expensive option of the Lock-N-Load Pro system ($280 per!!). ... more »

Tony is the man! Puts on a great event! He's also darned fast on the bike himself. Iowa riding is solid. We had 124 last weekend at the hard enduro with guys like Pat Smage, Nick Fahringer, and Quinn Wentzel racing.

Do yourself a favor and put them on wet. Use something such as this and it will make your life way easier and less frustrating.

I see a lot of people like to say they got these "SWEET" deals on here such, "Yeah, I got hooked up with a brand new bike below dealer cost.". I doubt many to be actually true and other to be very exaggerated. I just sold my 2019 KTM 300XC with a few ... more »
