Sorry not amateurs, but Thrasher, Hammaker and Schwartz did pretty well for rookies that were not that hyped before. I don't remember all the story here, didn't 1 of them even skipped the last sx race(s) to not point out too early, isn't it ? Just to ... more »

To think a top amateur can't top 10 immediately in the pros in 1 moto over a season is as laughable tbh, or need to buy a stop watch. The kids are hauling. He will continue to develop and will get better than that, but it is funny to think the kids are ... more »

No problem debating, but you should have watched the vid' I was talking about before posting. I know he is currently racing a 112. But a couple of years ago, at JS7 compound, he was not (and he had the small wheels). Then regarding the level, if you ... more »

Brian said LL is his last supermini race. He got much taller really quickly, like over the last few months. That is a bit sad for me as I have had a TON of fun seeing these supermini vid'. The most impressive one being "finding JS7 at Stewart's compound". ... more »

The shadow probably didn't help. At warp speed (4th or 5th stock gear?), it is quite a miracle he didn't get injured (I hope he is not, he finished the moto with the adrenaline but they may check him now, and for sure the 2 weeks break will help if he ... more »

An aluminium frame, cool plastics, and a couple trick stuffs, the rest is available through ktm group. I don't think they gonna invest 100M+ in r&d, tooling, inventory management etc just to have specific bikes on a niche market that may end up working ... more »

Thanks for making vitalmx a cool place. I hope you stick around, everybody need to take it easier at some point after years of grinding. Best of luck !

Just my 2 cents as I have no info. I think lots of positive can come from this. Maybe immediately, maybe in the mid term. With Bajaj being a major shareholder, I think many parts will be shared, let us not be too excited and expect too much. What is ... more »

This situation is why I am a big advocate of radio com' from the race director, to help the flaggers, just in case. Let us never see another Alessi crash that could have been much much worse. That sucks Brown got tangled pretty bad too.

450 first, not a big fan either. The 450 is the top category, it would be like running a 250 main event in sx after the 450s.

If we go mental about freshness (i have just edited as it was too long), for resale or not, then many get ignition and clutch covers as well (which based on the resale difference is quite a break even), remove rear disk protection (or make sure to get ... more »

I am sorry to say it as you have already invested a ton of money here, but to keep the bike fresh (and great for resale), the best is to get a new plastic kit, graphics and seat cover. Unprotected plastics are getting trashed really quickly after a couple ... more »
