Ride loose...loose hands, loose wrists, loose elbows, loose shoulders, loose neck...unlock those hips. Breath! Breath! Breath! (you are likely holding your breath...or at least not breathing correctly...steady consistent breaths the entire time you are ... more »

Then we are “neighbors”...I’ve been in Lehi since 2005...I think about Moving to Saratoga Springs just for access to the public land out of my garage. Lots of good riding out there.

That wasn’t a knock on Beaver...I think about moving there every time I drive through....It just seems like an obscure place for someone from out of state to move is all.

If you’re into off road, Warner valley east of st george and Cherry Creek and Jericho North of Delta have a million miles of trails...and the Little Sahara sand dunes are right there as well.

Why in the world would you move to beaver?

Added reply in a thread Going to purchase a KTM 450, what aftermarket add-ons to do? 5/13/2021 2:23 PM

I got you...and it makes sense. And just to clarify where I was coming from with my comment....I feel a riders skill level does matter when talking about mods and how to go faster...If a rider is already a fast rider, then their technique is already ... more »

Herlings is the James Stewart of the GP's... And just like Stewart, anytime he is on the line he's a threat to win and is likely to do something that will drop your jaw and make you ask "how?", and he deserves to be in the discussion for fastest riders ... more »

Are you a fast intermediate or faster (A, AA/Pro) rider? If not, take all that money you'd spend on aftermarket add-ons and spend it on as many riding schools as you can afford. If you're trying to go faster, its your technique-or lack of it-holding ... more »

Put all the best AMA Guys on that line and there wouldn't be enough room for all the folks wanting to come. Americans don't care to watch GP's because I'd bet in the minds of the majority of the people buying SX/National tickets (not the .00001% of fans ... more »

Added reply in a thread Looking to buy an under the jersey chest protector - Fox Raceframe CE, TLD Rockfight or Leatt 3df Airfit? 5/11/2021 5:23 PM

I’ve put in a lot of miles in the desert with that! It’s a ton of protection, very comfortable, and it’s not any hotter than any other chest protector.

Anstie will be around 5-10 most every moto, with a possible podium or two and MAYBE a moto win if the stars align... Coldenhoff could win races though...

It would be great...but I don't want to see him work over our guys every weekend. Once a year at the Des Nations is enough of a beat down for me.

No youtube, no video games at my house. Bored? Go outside and play... My girls got “phones” (purposely in quotes because they never talk on them) for their 13th birthday...but we monitor the crap out them, and they don’t have any social media. My boys ... more »

As a 40 year old father of 4 very busy kids (girls 14, 13 and boys 10, 7)...it’s a matter of priority, and how supportive your wife is. The time to ride is still there...it’s a matter of if you want to spend it with your kids, or our riding. Most of ... more »

I thought DC said that they could ask for and exception and be able to use one, and they are almost always given. Or did I miss understand what he said? Edit: Back on page three someone asked DC about an on board camera application and DC replied: “Yes, ... more »

You know far more than me about this stuff...do you have those videos? I’d love to see them? It’s interesting... Do you mount them on the side of the helmet, chin, or under the visor?

Added reply in a thread Seriously DC? Why? 5/10/2021 5:36 PM

It does seem odd that the same ama that fights against helmet mandates (even though helmets have been proven to be safer) in the name of personal choice...is banning cameras in the name of safety (even though it hasn’t been proven that a camera on the ... more »

If it’s about safety why do they allow exceptions to it, with a special permit? Is safety only important unless you get a permit?

Added reply in a thread How long should you keep a bike? 5/10/2021 4:07 PM

I would also add how much are you spending on modifications. To spend thousands on suspension, exhaust, and other mods, economically, it just doesn't make sense to switch bikes as often since you can't recoup the price of the mods at resale....you'd ... more »
