Reply to Will Eli be ready for the nationals? 6/28/2020 1:07 PM

Everybody keeps talking about Eli being a "new" dad. It seems as if most aren't aware he's a "new" dad for the third time as he and his girlfriend already have two children. It surprises me that so many talk about the effects of a "new" child are ignorant ... more »

Reply to Forkner update. 6/25/2020 3:30 PM

It will be interesting to see if you change your tune once you're made aware of the internal injuries he sustained. I'd expect you'll issue an apology to Austin for your ignorant post if it's announced to be more serious than his "ego"? The man works ... more »

Wow. I'm truly surprised to hear this as I make it a point to keep up with these kind of things. Evidently I'm not doing a very good job keeping up. I'm actually shocked that Yamaha would stick their neck out without having to just to keep up with their ... more »

James, great response to my post without a personal confrontation. We should be able to have discussions such as this without bringing in a bunch of nonsense. I disagree with your position but respect your take on the conversation.

Neither misanthropist nor curmudgeon accurately describe my "psyche". Additionally, I never argued he wasn't a VERY accomplished rider or fan favorite or that he sold a lot of shit. Those two observations are facts. I take issue with how he went about ... more »

He didn't think Sexton was going to triple.

Reply to How do you root? 6/23/2020 12:30 PM

You didn't offer the option a number of us would have chosen. Many racers/riders don't root for any brand or particular rider, we're just fans of the sport and only care about seeing good racing.

Reply to Buying New KTM in Canada as an American(NY) 6/23/2020 12:25 PM

You are wrong. ONLY the Austrian race bikes come with a written manufacturers warranty. This says a bunch about their commitment to quality and their customers.

If you look up the word "narcissist" in the dictionary you'll see a picture of Reed. He's so in love with himself and needing of attention he'll definitely race some select races just to hear folks clap and cheer for him as his ego demands. Hell, the ... more »

Did you buy a 3rd party warranty policy when you bought the bike? I wasn't aware of warranty/insurance policies being sold by third party companies on race bikes. I imagine they're probably out there somewhere as it you've got enough cash you get get ... more »

I imagine they'll let him out of his Senior Citizen Assisted Living facility but not sure he wants to risk not being let back in with this virus stuff. I don't think his "Rookie" of the year award will carry much weight with the nursing home administrators. ... more »

If you hadn't gotten lost there I threw in a second one that would have gotten you, specifically the "territorial urination contest"...

What is EMX? Something along the lines of the WNBA?

Reply to Chain Slider and Guide Advice Please.... 6/16/2020 12:54 PM

Funny you'd mention the wear on the master link pins. I was nut and bolting my bike before riding last weekend and something caught my eye. The clip on my RK EXW XW-ring chain was missing! It was unsettling and could have resulted in very serious consequences

Reply to Chain Slider and Guide Advice Please.... 6/16/2020 10:41 AM

Thanks for the response but really looking for advice on the question presented. I've quantitatively tracked longevity of consumables for over thirty years and found X/O ring chains are well worth the price compared to standard chains. I'm not trying ... more »

New thread Chain Slider and Guide Advice Please.... 6/16/2020 10:19 AM

The OEM slider and guide on my 2019 KTM 450 is too narrow for an X/O ring chain. The pins on my X/O ring chains are getting worn/ground down from contacting the "vertical" portions of the slider and guide. I'm having to replace my chains due to this ... more »

Reply to Anyone else get choked up in the Reed segment? 6/15/2020 11:38 AM

LOL. Choked up, no. The beauty of watching it delayed about 1.5 hours off the DVR is you can fast forward through all the bullshit and commercials. If I had watched I probably would have choked up vomit. No everybody is a fan of the guy...

Reply to Criteria 6/15/2020 9:22 AM

I was told by some of the guys racing there weren't enough entires to "enforce" the originally announced criteria rules for entry. On a side note, Colt Nichols wouldn't be racing in SLC if the original criteria were applied. Lack of entrants made the ... more »

Reply to WTF is it going to take 6/15/2020 9:08 AM

Yeah, coverage seems to be getting worse instead of better despite the constant observations offered by fans like us Vitards. I was incensed when they kept the camera on Jett Lawerence trying to pick his bike up and get going after his first turn get ... more »
