Reply to Any update on Marty? 2/22/2018 10:35 AM

The result of being a veteran in what's supposed to be a development class. I no longer blame Davalos for staying in the 250s for so long...the guy makes a good living racing dirt bikes and despite a great showing last year on the 450 outdoors he still ... more »

How he didn't win Best Whip in '09 at X Games is still beyond me. He was ridiculous. I know it's really just a popularity contest and I believe Potter won since he had more of mainstream X Games following at the time...but still. Missing Stew's style ... more »

Reply to Nobody's talking about Plessinger? 2/5/2018 11:34 AM

Plessinger, Cianciarulo, Hill and McElrath are all ready for 450s. As much as I enjoy riding 250s, in this sport, the 450s are the premier class. Therefore I really don't care about a regional championship for a secondary "development" class. But these ... more »

Reply to Truly wild, wild speculation about Feld and Supercross ownership 1/24/2018 6:40 AM

I understand your concern, but it's not going to happen. I had a very informative chat with Kenneth Feld at the MEC and I can tell you that he has a huge amount of respect for Supercross, the teams and athletes involved. He also clearly recognizes the ... more »

Reply to Why do non-Fox athletes on Honda have to run the Fox logo on their team shirts? 1/17/2018 8:20 AM

Fox is the official Honda HRC clothing sponsor. TLD is his personal sponsor. I agree that it's a weird conflict that you probably would not see in many other sports, but I would imagine it's in his contract that he must wear the official team gear for ... more »

Haha. Well said!

Reply to Englishtown Closing? 1/17/2018 7:24 AM

Same here Joe. First track I ever went to and where this annoying addiction began. Yup, sounds like the track is simply moving locations to where the current practice track is. So it will only be one track instead of two but from what I've heard, they ... more »

Bummer, but I think he is meant for bigger things. Looks really good on SX tracks and I hope a team gives him a shot next season.

Pretty good deal. Custom tank is dope.

Reply to How long until electric bikes rule the world? 12/6/2017 1:02 PM

Obsolete is a strong word, which is why I used it. I do not see basic bike design changing much in the next 10-15 years, so I would guess there will be a push of converting older bikes with electric motors, which would obviously cut costs for consumers. ... more »

Reply to How long until electric bikes rule the world? 12/6/2017 12:17 PM

To quote my first post in this thread "10 years until they're prominent. 20 years or less until gas bikes are obsolete." And yes I could see the resurgence of 2-strokes coming. Kinda gave it a nudge too when I did the Vital ReVival project. Never really stopped ... more »

Reply to How long until electric bikes rule the world? 12/6/2017 11:56 AM

10 years ago did you think that KTM would be the major player they are today? 20 years ago did anyone believe 4-strokes would completely take over the market? There are a number of factors involved in a changing landscape of motorcycle technology and ... more »

Hands down Herlings. Not even a question. Cairoli a very very close second though.

Reply to Geneva SX live timing or link ??? 12/1/2017 8:17 AM

Josh Hill racing on the Alta. Very cool! Interested to see how he does. Don't think it will be a Henry/Vegas '97 situation, but first legitimate pro race I know of for the bike. Straight Rhythm doesn't really count.
