Reply to Thinking Back, Which Track, In Your Lifetime, Have You Spun The Most Laps Upon ? *Is the track still active ? 11/15/2019 5:28 PM

It would be Canyon Raceway in Phoenix... Still there, not quite like it was back in the day when an AMA National was held there. Second would be Saddleback... We all know the story there.

My '81 RM125 was my favorite bike of all time. It was a massive jump forward in tech and performance... Motor was ok stock, but was a fire breather after Rudy and Dean Dickinson from R&D worked it over. I did burn a water pump during the qualy race

Oh hell, if we're going to shoot out, lets get the Koshine 125 in there too... Who's got the juice? Make it happen!

I was hoping for a 250 east and a 250 west rider for SX... Bummer. Glad to see the Zuk's on the grid though. Good luck to Joey, Alex and JGR.

Not unexpectedly, lost a lot of time in the whoops... But I like what I saw everywhere else in that short clip. I wish him the best and hope he survives the SX season to make the MX season that much more interesting.

He's good all around, but I think a full off season of MX training and then racing would put him right in contention.

Is it real? I'm not a pro at photochop... :p They couldn't have made the battery box look any worse... Like it wasn't even designed to fit in that space...

Not a huge JS17 fan, but a big fan of the sport... I hope he does well and brings in some positive publicity for JGR.

Baggett.

This is cool, always liked Max. And if the stars align, he should see some results that will surprise.

ROFL... Now that's funny. Honda's net worth is more than 4 times what Kawasaki is worth. Honda let him go by not matching Kawasaki's deal. They wanted Eli they could have kept him. You're simply wrong on this one.

The same Honda that let Tomac go? That statement doesn't hold water...

Reply to Riding Alone 10/31/2019 9:36 AM

I rode alone about 80% of the time... Insane to think of doing that today. I did have to pick up the bike and ride home on a compound fractured left arm once. It was 2 weeks before Loretta Lynn's too... I had 2 elbows, imagine getting the bike up, started ... more »

Reply to Barcia 10/31/2019 9:32 AM

Except that his string of single digit finishes and podiums and even wins on the Honda is vastly better than on the Yamaha... Just check the 2013 season. For what it's worth, a close friend of mine is a HUGE Barcia fan, so I went Tomac back in the early ... more »

Reply to Barcia 10/31/2019 6:45 AM

It's been said before, and it's just an opinion... But it's also my opinion, Barcia and that Yamaha aren't a match made in heaven. That bike seems to have a very small setup window and I feel like it doesn't respond well when ridden with a Barcia style ... more »

Reply to Decotis 2020 10/30/2019 1:18 PM

Yep, 1E and 1W and a 450 is not bad at all considering all of the challenges they have faced recently. I hope all come in healthy and fit.

Reply to The Great Debate… PREMIX 10/29/2019 2:41 PM

Always ran 40:1 in the 125's and 250's, everything but the hypo built 80's... Ran 32:1 in those. But we were already going through 4 bikes a year in the mod class... With today's better synthetics, and simply better motors, I wouldn't have a problem ... more »

Yep over to East if he wasnt already is my bet.
