I just got a 2017 KTM 150 and am looking for a different set of bars. The stock bend isn't terrible, but I've always preferred a crossbar on my bars. I am looking for what bars/bends work well with the new ktm chassis. I am 5'11 if that helps at all. ... more »

That's my Dad's restored 67 Ford Country Squire, we actually drove it to the dealership the day I bought the bike. Now the bike is sitting in his garage with all of his toys until I can get it back to Michigan with my truck in the next few weeks

I picked up a 2017 KTM 150 this past weekend. Have been out of the sport for almost 10 years and wanted something I could work on myself and just have a ton of fun on. I also stopped racing on superminis so I never made the jump to a 250 four stroke

They both run it I believe as others have said. On another note, when they first introduced the Red plate for some reason I remember the previous champion running it, AND the current points leader if it was someone different. Is this accurate or am I ... more »

Are those Alpinestars Tech 5's? If so how do you like them? Thinking of picking up a pair but worried they'll be too soft, stuck between them and the tech 7s and trying to not spend an arm and a leg if I can avoid it.

First number ever was 114 made out of electrical tape on the day of the race. My dad just picked 114 and 115 for my brother and I until we got our true ama cards. Once I got my ama card the last 3 of mine were 065 so I took 65 and it stuck. I was racing ... more »

I agree it's too high. My best guess is 5k but again complete shot in the dark.

Hey Vital, I've been out of MX since I was on superminis in 2007 and have been casually looking for a nice used Ktm 150. A 2016 Ktm 125 from around my old home area has popped up on CL and I am curious on what a reasonable price to target is. It has ... more »

That's going to be a decently long drive, but doable while you get your living situation figured out. I moved to Royal Oak in 2015 after college and it takes me about 30 minutes in the morning to get to Ford in Dearborn taking Southfield Freeway (aka ... more »

I didn't know it at the time, but in 2006 on amateur day at Steel City I beat Jeremy Martin in the 2nd moto in the 85 12-13 class. No clue how, he must have crashed but it was surprising to say the least. Didn't realize it until about two years ago when ... more »
