Check out the "Metal Artwork" thread. There was a link to a guy in there that made some pretty cool stuff. I liked that steampunk metal moto related artwork he was doing. Maybe something for the shop walls or shelves?? EDIT: Here you go: https://www.vitalmx.com/forums/Moto-Related,20/Metal-Moto-Art,1390493 ... more »

I was bitching at the TV for 1/2 the race about this. Wifey told me "I wasn't being nice". It was frustrating.

I'm more interested in this practice of swinging around dead cats. Where do I sign up for that?

Added reply in a thread Was this the worst coverage of the year? 3/15/2021 4:54 AM

I had the pleasure (seriously) of watching it from a friend's house this week. They are not moto people at all. They are sports people though but if I hadn't been present, there was no way that SX would be on the tv. Nice mancave and projector/wall setup

Congrats on not having any issues. Thats a good thing! Not saying I've never stripped a bolt on my bikes before but on my MY16 bike I had 4 fasteners that were buggered from the OEM. Couple on the body panels, couple elsewhere. All M6's. One of the fuel ... more »

Hey Tim. If you don't have a thread insert kit already, go get some. M6 especially. I've had all brands and for some reason, Kawasaki has the worst fasteners (specifically the female side) in the business. The larger (M8 and up) stuff seems ok on the ... more »

Data point: I ended up using an Apple TV device directly to TV which worked ok. I did try multiple other methods that did not work very well. Android Phone to Chromecast was very grainy and resolution sucked. Completely unwatchable while bikes were on ... more »

I completely agree. How in the world the TV package has not been announced yet is kinda crazy.

C&C Sports in Brighton, MI just got a 21' CRF450R in the showroom. I was quoted $11,100 OTD. Thanked him for his time. I was also desiring the new CRF but but there is no freakin way I'm paying that much. Guess I'm riding green this season again. ... more »

Thanks guys. I was thinking Reynard but didn't know if they did engine service work. Was thinking maybe a practice bike or something. Did they have a race team ever?

I ride trails a lot. What bikes are they on? I ask because I didnt take my boys out on the marked trails until they were on 85's. The Michigan sand eats up the little wheels unless they're fast kids. Mine were good riders but not what i'd call rippers. ... more »
