I heard with Anderson and Dungey out, Aldon is letting Jonah tag along for free.

Same here. Since all of the assets (natural gas storage fields) I work with are a minimum of 4 hours away, I basically can work anywhere with Internet and phone service.

Reply to Vented Gear anyone? 6/20/2016 8:20 AM

I guess you could put leather conditioner on them but I don't do anything to them and not sure that would even help. I also used a leatt hinged knee guard, not a knee brace, so it may create less wear?

Reply to Vented Gear anyone? 6/19/2016 1:55 PM

I have the 16' 360 gear and it's very vented. I'm a big fan of the performance, just not the price

Reply to Has the High-Point track lost its soul? 6/17/2016 4:24 AM

I haven't raced the track since 2010, but I can say it is still hands down my favorite track I have ever ridden. Mostly because of all of the up and down hills. I haven't raced it since they put that giant quad in the back, which on video looks pretty ... more »

Pic of my dad and I a few years back, the day after graduating from college.

He is for sure the person I look up to the most. He came from a very broken family without a dollar to their name, and then had me at 19. Defiantly dealt difficult ... more »
Reply to Beginners maintainance schedule for a 2 stroke 6/15/2016 4:39 AM

May sound trivial, but buy an hour meter. I bought one off of amazon for around 15 dollars and is a good way of tracking when work needs done. Also only took 5 minutes to install.

Reply to New Starcross tires? 6/9/2016 9:57 AM

I have an hour on medium compound. From what I could tell they hooked up great. Better in my opinion than the mx52. I can't speak on the wear since what I was riding was just basically field sections with ruts. Edit: side note, they were really pumping ... more »

Do two stroke lives matter?

Reply to 2016 Beta 300RR - has anyone ridden one? 6/6/2016 11:35 AM

I rode a 15' 250rr through a rather technical section in some trails and I thought it was pretty good. I prefer the feel of my 15' 250sx that is set up for woods better, but that is really a fair comparison. The rr felt like it had a much more linear ... more »

Reply to The next step up!!? For 3 1/2 year 6/1/2016 6:40 AM

Just my 2cents. Like project racer said, leave him on the pw until he has mastered it. The limited power will teach him to carry speed and make him a better rider. From personal experience, I was put on a too race ready bike at young age before I could ... more »

Gaitten is a good rider, I'll be at the JP this weekend so I will be on the look out. Good luck to him!

Reply to Works pipe rust prevention 5/25/2016 11:22 AM

Thanks for all the suggestions. I have been using wd40 and even the wd40 with silicon which works pretty well. I may throw some of this on before the next gncc and see how it holds up. If it does not seem to work I may pick up some of the products you ... more »

Reply to Loading two bikes 5/19/2016 9:07 AM

For the love of god make sure that strap is not close to the front rotor as previously mentioned. I was 16 and strapped down my dads brand new bike and my ragged out bike. Of course his would be the one to fall off

unsure

Out of curiosity, did you happen to make it out to one of the gnccs yet? If so what were your thoughts on it?

Reply to First Look: 2017 KTM Motocross and Cross-Country Line 5/17/2016 7:52 AM

Anyone else notice the claimed weight on the 250xc is lighter than the 250sx? Something seems off about that.

Reply to First Look: 2017 KTM Motocross and Cross-Country Line 5/17/2016 4:30 AM

My thoughts exactly
