Added reply in a thread Ready for a Chinese 250 2-Stroke MX'er? 3/17/2018 9:52 AM

Where the hell have they been? I figured when the Japanese left the two stroke market the Chinese would be quick to fill in the void. Is there some little known code of ethics that Asians won't steal trade secrets from other Asians. Maybe they only steal ... more »

I put Moto Metal wheels on my truck several years ago. I believe WheelPros is the US distributor of them and they were sponsoring MX or SX at the time. They have Moto cast right into the rim so they've got that going for

How many fast 250 guys would prefer to take their 250's into the 450 class if they had that option? Certainly no factory team effort would allow it to happen as it seems to not be in their marketing plans. It seems far to many guys dead end their career ... more »

Can't we just tell them we identify as trangender's or something and then we'll be good?? This could build support for our activities in the LGBTQ (any more letters?) and we can claim discrimination if some are still against us. Win-win; and think of

Well I can't imagine they'd ever let the automobile loose. Something that kills and maims thousands of people every year? They put in these Obama era regs for truck drivers that's substantially raising freight costs as they figure it'll save 26 lives ... more »

Wasn't Witteveen with a Chinese team to develop a 125cc to race the 125 MotoGP series with several years ago? At least that's what I thought I read somewhere. I don't know if they ever got a machine together and then the format was changed to Moto3. ... more »

I was at qualifying for the US nationals many years ago. Until then I had never seen a Top Fuel car run. I was spectating near the start line. When they launched it was the sound, the vibration, the burning of the eyes and nose from the fuel hitting ... more »

I think it was renamed the VTSB (ViTard Safety Board). Its very similar to the NTSB that investigates airplane crashes and every bit as professional I think.

Knowing that schools were not gun free zones and the possibility of multiple armed "good guys" inside would keep many of the wacko's bent on destruction away. If they're planning on "going out" and taking others down with them, they could acieve that ... more »
