I recall some of that... But isn't there enough "space" to build a full size track??? All in fun anyways...

Added reply in a thread Nationals Postponed - Again 7/1/2020 8:10 PM

I'm just trying to find the Holy Grail of enough acres of quality dirt, enough equipment nearby to build a national caliber track, enough social distancing to keep everyone happy and enough motivation to actually do it. Moto on!!!

How about Mesquite MX in Mesquite, NV? Far enough away from everything to create a “bubble”... pipe dreams, I know. But that’s like 4 places now with enough social distance from the rest of the world to Race!!!

This is exactly what we need to see. Where it's working and has been successfully produced. I hope you guys keep it up and it runs without a hitch... Maybe the powers that be can try a slice of your pizza...

Good luck and moto on!

How about Mandan Motocross in ND? This place looks like it has potential!! Seriously, the NBA is doing the "bubble" in Orlando. SX pulled it off in SLC and Golf is going, NASCAR is going, has to be a way if we can find the "place" to do it.

I can see, as was mentioned earlier in this thread, a couple of facilities running multiple events. If spread over a 2 week period, 2 facilities run 4 events alternating between the 2. I can only imagine these topics are being discussed in the war room ... more »

Added reply in a thread 250 Nationals top 5 6/30/2020 6:26 PM

It's a tough class for sure. 1. Ferrandis 2. Cooper 3. J Mart 4. Mosiman 5. Hampshire But Hunter has to be a factor if he stays healthy... And we really don't know how Jett is on a 250 outdoors, racing these guys. A Mart and McElrath will be racy at ... more »

Are you trying to run at the front of the big boy class at Mini-O's? The Husky and the KTM are ahead of the other bikes off the showroom floor, no doubt. But all of them can be made to be very competitive when built and set up properly. Pro-Circuit makes ... more »

Couldn't agree more! We were supposed to be at Ernee this year and that's out, so shooting for Maggiora next year. Would love to be there if it's Tony's final race on the big stage.

Added reply in a thread Will Eli be ready for the nationals? 6/29/2020 4:31 PM

No doubt, Eli when feeling good on the bike is something to behold. Sometimes multiple seconds a lap faster than everyone else. The reason I specifically said Zach, is he is one of the very few, like Eli that can turn his fastest lap in the last lap ... more »

Added reply in a thread Will Eli be ready for the nationals? 6/29/2020 2:40 PM

I agree, but the thing that keeps Eli from that is his occasional bad start. Zach isn't going to give it up easily if he holeshots and Eli is coming from 16th. But he gets to 2nd every time that happens... Points keep piling on. I think Zach beats Webb ... more »

Love all the posts giving Zach some credit for his speed and conditioning! But Eli will run at and near the front all year and rack up the points... But, what is "all year"? 5 races? Sigh...

Added reply in a thread 450 factory edition to 350 swap? Stupid? possibly? idk 6/27/2020 8:17 AM

In that situation... I'd do it. (mind you, I wouldn't have a 450FE if what I really wanted was a 350) But the hit on the 450 will be more than you think, but not nearly as much as the cost of the FE bits...

Added reply in a thread Darian Sanayei to Pro Circuit Kawasaki for the Outdoors. 6/25/2020 7:47 PM

Agree, although I expect Mosiman to be in the first group not the second... Darian is going to need a great start, and some serious speed for the "full" moto. Something he hasn't really shown in his career so far.

Added reply in a thread Darian Sanayei to Pro Circuit Kawasaki for the Outdoors. 6/25/2020 3:27 PM

Darian is without question better outdoors than SX... I hope he can be consistent. But we will certainly see flashes of speed in my opinion. I said that about Covington too. Maybe I should just shut up.

Nobody is really going out to win at a high level on any of these bikes off the showroom floor. They can all he made real good with a little work. I'd probably work with Pro Circuit on the KX and R&D on the RM, but they would be really good race ... more »
