Added reply in a thread Nihilo Frame Tape WTF 9/9/2020 2:02 PM

Sounds about right. I had a pattern I would use to make my own out of a roll of quality 3M Grip Tape for my old Honda. I found the grey to last the longest and provide the correct grip. I use the Acerbis rubberized protectors now on my KTM - even though ... more »

Added reply in a thread Do you use elbow guards/pads for motocross racing ? 8/21/2020 7:11 PM

You wear them when you mtb but not when you moto? Thats odd. I've always dressed for the crash not the ride. I have seen numerous elbows filleted down to the bone, the worst was indeed on a mtb. Small tip over onto shale - I could see moving ligaments/cartilage ... more »

Dude, I was there!! on the far side of the National Track, we called it "The Levels" If you went to the end you would end up at the 1st level of "Suicide Mtn". Am I right? If not, it happened twice. Poor sap.
