I imagine the smaller sectors will come next. As of now ICE motorcycles are not included, but it seems inevitable. Ride 'em while you can. Into investing? They're going to be building millions and millions of charging stations. The other factor is to ... more »

I broke my hip. With two femurs also broken, I hope doesn't have long term problems because I sure did.

The former speaker of the California Senate ran for Congress this year on a platform of abolishing ICE. These people are completely out of their 'effin minds. They destroyed the Democratic Party by ridiculous proposals such as this, free college tuition ... more »

Most flat maps of the world represent certain countries as much larger than they really are. They are based on the Mercator projection, which is more than 500 years old, but is still used today. Here are the actual sizes of the USA, Alaska and Canada,

I haven't convinced myself he was murdered- it's a theory, and the most likely explanation is he killed himself- but it's not the only explanation. I'll leave it at that. I'll keep that in mind about visiting a mental health practitioner. I'll ask him

I went to a no jumping race. It was called a hare scramble.

I would love to see those- digitize those bad boys and put 'em on youtube. I used to race Antietam, White Oak, Aquasco, Budds, Ramblers- those are some pretty iconic tracks.

Zero is still around- they have focused on the street/dual-sport, which seems to be the smart move, as it's obviously a gigantic market compared with pure moto. Maybe with Alta gone, they will come out with a motocross bike.

Damn- that is a helluva piece of mini moto history. I'm glad to hear you're alive today to tell the tale! Possibly there were so many good 80 riders at time because minis were really advancing quickly in technology. I had an '80 RM80 with dual rear shocks ... more »

If a Euro wins the SX title next year (Musquin), the world is going to stop spinning on its axis.

I agree it's just a matter of speed and skill. The whole "we just do Supercross now" excuse is a steaming pile of excrement. It made it worse after the MXDN when Tomac went and got his $1 million payday from his Monster bosses as a consolation prize ... more »

It was a bit deflating to hear RC blame the loss on a focus on Supercross by US riders and to highlight that riders only race it to avoid getting crap. He didn't opine on whether he thought that attitude on the part of US riders was cool with him. I ... more »

I am trying to imagine Team France making the race all about war and celebrating the French military with their victory. That would be about as silly as this idea, which I didn't even think Rupert was serious about at first. War sucks and motocross is ... more »

Can someone 'splain to me how 2007 (when the US cleaned up at MXON at Budds and Villo schooled everybody on a 250) is so different from 2018 in terms of riders' focus on Supercross? There was one less round of Supercross in 2007- the series ended about ... more »
