This is not true as of today.

Shock Doctor. They actually have a full custom one you can buy. They also sponsor Blake Baggett and he runs one. Doesn't seam to negatively effect his riding.

Reply to Privateers gets 4th in 250 AMA Pro SX Main and gets.... 2/17/2013 6:11 PM

Flarider, Austin had a great ride at SD and has had a couple of decent rides this year, but he also didn't qualify for a main. Plus, with all due respect, its only 4th place. I know that sounds harsh but that is the reality of the situation. Teams need ... more »

Reply to "Works" Tires 2/17/2013 12:51 PM

The really good "works" tires went away when Bridgestone left the sport. The Dunlop's really dont hold a candle to the Bridgestone's. Just a fact.

Reply to SX WIN BONUSES? 2/14/2013 8:47 PM

Here is how it works. All of the major 450 and 250 contracts are insured. in fact the entire contract is insured for the $1M plus guys. bonuses, salaries, etc are insured. Just an FYI. For the guys that arent predicted to be a podium, win, or championship ... more »

Reply to What if Milsaps had the same bike as Tickle? 1/27/2013 10:51 AM

Doesnt change a thing. The 450 class is all about feel. The Rockstar guys can either make or buy whtever they need to make the bike perfect for Davi. Most Factory stuff these days (except Honda) comes from suppliers here in the US that are obtainable. ... more »

Reply to MEC vs SX Purse Money 1/24/2013 10:07 PM

RM127 The million isnt an insurance plan. its Monster's money. When you have a rider like RV in the field that has a supper high win percentage the insurance is to expensive. Its a better gamble to take the chance. Why spend an additional $300-450K for ... more »

Reply to L&Mc shut down... 1/24/2013 11:01 AM

It happens when sponsors dont live up to their agreements. If you think everyone in this industry beleives in standing behind their word you're wrong. Happens all the time, only now it is on a bigger and more public level. Bad deal for everyone involved, ... more »

Reply to New YS propaganda 1/22/2013 8:58 PM

The interesting thing is this. There are more riders making a good living riding GP’s than in the US. Granted that there are 3 maybe 4 guys making really good money here, but after that it falls off substantially and then you have guys winning races ... more »

Reply to Twitch Vs. RacerX 1/10/2013 5:19 PM

Just a little FYI for you pal. Twitch, Hart, Degan, and that other FMX guy TP sell more merchandise than every other MX/SX rider combined. True story buddy. They are way more mainstream than you think and make a whole hell of a lot more money than you ... more »

Reply to Nelson's endo and Bagget 1/6/2013 8:31 PM

Blake's arm got massively messed up in that crash with Nelson's bike. He was in the Asterisk unti till well after the 450 Main was over and guys were back in the pits for some time. The announcers didnt even apparently notice it as they never commented ... more »

Reply to Did anyone realize Deano has a 2 year pc deal? 12/7/2012 9:03 AM

FYI, if Dean scores 120 points in SX he is out of the 250 class whether or not he wins the championship. Same goes for Baggett and a few other guys.

Reply to 6D helmets Omni-Directional suspension 12/2/2012 11:08 AM

When, and i repeat when it is proven that this technology is far advance than what is currently available the other brands will simply license the technology from 6D. Pretty simple and great business model for them. Also, to the guys saying MX is too ... more »

Reply to Dean Wilson 12/2/2012 10:53 AM

My guess would be Dean on the West. Baggett isnt even riding yet and Dean has been on the bike (not necessarily the 250) for a while and they will not be put on the same coast together. Just a guess!

Reply to Brayton, did he not dig the Honda ? 11/23/2012 7:45 AM

Jamie, I am fairly certain it affected him. You see almost all riders over here have some pre conceived notion that the bike is bad. Silly?? Yes, very silly in my opinion, but true. So many riders over here have spoken so badly about the bike that people ... more »

Reply to Brayton, did he not dig the Honda ? 11/22/2012 7:52 PM

WOW, maybe the Yamaha isn't so bad after all. Everyone complains about it but if memory serves me right Josh Hill rode the thing pretty well before he had his broken rib crash at ATL, and was tied with both RD and RV for the SX series lead. James ruined ... more »

Reply to Should the second moto gates be full at a National 11/21/2012 12:28 PM

Correct. If you can qualify within 107% then it doesnt matter in the race. i think that would actually be enough to make things safer. if i am being totally honest i say qualify the top 40 guys, and then only the top 20 get to race. Set the purse so ... more »

Reply to Should the second moto gates be full at a National 11/21/2012 12:16 PM

Personally i think that it should be less than 40 riders qualifying. There should be a rule like there is in Indy Car and F1 that you need to be within a defined percentage of the fastest qualifier's time. There have been ocasions where these slower ... more »

Reply to For $1395, Who the eff is buying? 11/9/2012 11:50 AM

Maybe you guys should be mad at Honda for going to a dual exhaust. seams like there is twice as much stuff as before, hence the larger price tag. Just a thought.
