Central Coast has so much open land. All those grassy hills through the oak trees look like they'd be a lot of fun to ride. It's a shame that so little of it is available for MX or trail riding.

Just curious - what do you consider to be the one decent race series?

It looks like we got more serious voters, and I think the community ranking looks pretty reasonable now. Personally, I think Forkner is too low, but based on his injury history I can see why he would be down there. 1. Jeremy Martin 2. Hunter Lawrence ... more »

Well, I guess that isn't any fun. Somebody decided to just vote up the Lawrence brothers and vote down all the other contenders.

I made a little toy to create a "wisdom of crowds" for this question. If you feel inclined, you can go here to contribute. You will be given a choice of two riders. Pick which one you think will have a better year, and he'll move up the rankings: https://www.motoxdata.com/elo/index.php ... more »

It's a rain forest compared to Las Vegas.

When I have to lift my gear bag and throw it in the truck, it feels so heavy. It blows me away that I put all that stuff on my body when I ride!

Added reply in a thread Seriously DC? Why? 5/11/2021 3:07 PM

The rule comes from the national AMA organization. But each AMA promoter operates on their own, and most are volunteers. Technically, they should ask everybody to remove the mount. But, unfortunately, not every volunteer at the event knows every rule. ... more »

Just curious - do they actually weigh everybody for that class, or is it on your honor?

What's your point? Nobody is arguing that motocross isn't dangerous. The idea is to minimize those risks that can be done easily.

Yes, the camera will (usually) snap off on impact. However, 1) The mounting base is adhered to the helmet, and that is not going to come off. It only sticks up about 1/2", but it could be enough to catch in the dirt and cause the helmet to twist instead ... more »

What side effects with Xarelto? I took it for about 2 years, and was not religious about taking at the same time. I never had any side effects.

Yeah, I guess he did it in 2019. I don't have 2018 lap counts handy, but he probably did it then, too. In 2018 he had 12 podiums (8 wins) and then 4 times finishing 13th or worse and he missed a race. So zero finishes between 4th and 12th. That sounds ... more »

I am also a blood thinner lifer.

Added reply in a thread MX on blood thinners 5/5/2021 11:27 AM

Yeah, I had some doctors say "yes" and some say "no". I think some doctors are more likely to say "no" just to be cautious. Some doctors think you are an idiot for riding a dirt bike any time.

Added reply in a thread Rider statistics season to season 5/5/2021 11:25 AM

Yeah, I've been trying to think of ways to do this myself. Using points to compare seasons isn't the best, because the points system is a little arbitrary, with the varying margins between different finish positions. Some other conundrums: For Roczen, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Rider statistics season to season 5/5/2021 11:09 AM

Yeah, Roczen led by a good margin in 2020 and 2021. I bet it doesn't happen often that a guy has most laps led (by a good margin) and doesn't win the championship.

I've been on Xarelto, and now Eliquis instead, for 6 years. I'm back to riding/racing regularly. I just don't take the meds about 12 hours before I ride, to limit its effectiveness. (Eliquis is a twice-daily prescription.) My doctor said it should be ... more »

According to the AMA rule, the mount would be disallowed because it is a modification of the helmet.
