Guys, thanks for all the input. I bought a 9' Titan folding ramp off eBay for $105. shipped. I got a bit lucky as I bought it directly from Titan as it was their listing and the description said it was discounted as it had a scratch on it. I think it ... more »

I agree fully. The nickname "Bam-Bam" is a marketing tool similar to Ronnie Mac. The point I make is while the name adds value to Justin from a marketing perspective experienced racers/riders on here and throughout the moto community talk as if he still ... more »

That already exists, it's called Rocky Mountain MC. Cheaper pricing and faster delivery than a dealer. Sort of funny as I buy a new bike every two years. I spend about 20 minutes in the dealership every two years. Just enough time to write them a check ... more »

NOT trying to start a territorial urination contest but fewer Pro's are wearing knee braces UNLESS they're sponsored/paid by the manufacturer to wear them. There's never been a definitive, unbiased, SX/MX specific technical study done to determine if ... more »

I'm devastated thinking about what this young man and his family/friends are having to endure just waiting on a prognosis. Just heart breaking. I bothers me so much I've been reading up on all involved with Brian Moreau. I'm 59 and have been racing/riding ... more »

Most Pro riders don't have much of a choice as it's all they know. Their JOB since they've been 5 years old has been to race motorcycles. They've been home schooled and have no marketable skills outside racing dirt bikes. They're in between a rock and ... more »

Most millennial's don't realize those things surgically attached to their hands/body that I call a "phone" are capable of making a "phone call". Hell, they don't even know what a "phone call" is. You ever see a millennial try to have a conversation with ... more »

I think it's insulting to refer to Justin as "Bam-Bam". Granted, he earned that nickname MANY years ago when he was very aggressive racing 250's as an amateur and pro. However, it surprises me that very few people recognize he's matured and grown up. ... more »

I'm surprised folks on here listen to the announcers. They're there for the casual, uniformed non-riding fans. They're there so the broadcast doesn't have dead air. I tune them out like I tune out my wife. Just like the way parents sound in the old Peanuts/Charlie ... more »

As I stated in my original post this is what I've been using for 30+ years. Same board no less for that 30+ years. I've actually grown attached to it. I want to be able to close my tailgate and the wooden board is too long. This is the only reason I'm ... more »

Yeah, I've got their website open right now. Good looking ramps in 8', 9' and even 10' and reasonable priced. I might just get a 10' as there's really no penalty I can see for going as long as possible provided it will fit in my 5.75' bed with the tailgate ... more »

I don't mind towing my trailer other than my round trip to/from track is 160 miles and I only get 9.3 mpg towing the trailer running 83 mph. Without the trailer I get around 13 mpg at the same speed.

Not an option. It's a company truck that I also get to use as a personal vehicle. As such, it's mine to use but not sell.

Yes I have but I'm not a fan. I have several riding buddies with them and I don't like how "wobbly" they are and also worry about someone tapping/running into me from the rear as I tend to brake check tailgaters. My perception might be unfounded on the ... more »

If your "Just a question", which has NOTHING to do with the topic being discussed , other than to "ridicule" in a passive aggressive manner is directed at me the answer to your "question" is two fold. 1. My truck spends 75% of it's life off road as I
