Does the average sponsor of an mx team engage in that same level of due diligence and analysis? Does Kawasaki rely completely on MONSTER to go racing? I don't know. But, JGR relies completely on their sponsors, per J-Bone. What ROI analysis did JGR do ... more »

You put the hammer on the nail! 💯👈 Team up a rider/mechanic and give them a funmover. They can live/train in FL or Timbuktu----just have your ass/bike at the assigned tracks. I find it hard to believe that having a race mechanic working with his rider ... more »

Just because "we've always had 'em" and "it looks professional", doesn't mean the sport REQUIRES them to be successful. I always hear that the top riders can "win on anything!" Perhaps they can also win while pitting motorcycles out of something smaller/cheaper ... more »

The high figure was listed in a video tour of the hauler posted by MotoEffex on YT. I have no idea, hence the first sentence being a question. 😄 Pretty sure BigB pegged the new Kawi trailer at 7-figures in a video tour from last year. But, those are ... more »

Would be cool if JS63 does indeed put in a small beginner track. Sounds like it is going to be a family-friendly environment.

See, this is the logic that keeps smacking me in the face. If a rider goes down, park his FunMover and allocate those travel expenses into a reserve account. If you are down to 1 guy (frequently the case due to injuries)----then 1 FunMover and attendant ... more »

Man, this is SoCal---there are some quick cats on the vet tracks! And, there is always that one really fast guy on the vet track running everybody tight and jumping the quad... 😄 I'm specifically pointing to the fact that with the closure of Milestone, ... more »

Prediction: 2015 TRD Pro will be "the" Taco to own in 10 years. Last year of a proven and vetted platform (frame and springpack issues, aside) and all the gizmo's. The production numbers were low and the 2" lift is factory oem. 👈

How does one measure ROI on a semi wrap? Serious question---not being a troll. I have owned and sold several businesses and the whole semi-truck presence in mx has always intrigued me, vis-a-vis value vs. bling. Perhaps I am jealous, but I've tried like ... more »

Am I hearing correctly that the new Husky Team trailer cost $2,000,000.00? I am pretty stunned by that figure, but Kawi has a similar unit as of last year. Is this the new "bar" for signing top-tier riders? That is to say, do these teams market their ... more »

We talk about growing the sport. More tracks is a good thing (even though my drive just increased). Tracks without a beginner track is not so good---for neither the fast guys nor the beginners, as they will now mix together....(same as Fox/Pala). Guess ... more »

Gave up on Main Event Moto. Hard to get excited when the host openly and repeatedly talks about how they hate doing the show and don't want to be there. However, next to Weege, Blair is the best of the Race Day bunch, hands down.

King or Camberg, imo. The spanner should be included.

The Taco lean is a real thing and well-documented among Taco owners. I ran a "lean plate" on the left side of my first 2 Taco's that simply raised the left-side. Interestingly, you can get .25" or .50" depending in the lean of your particular truck. ... more »
