Wow, such terrible injuries and pain to go through. Glad he is recovering, but he has always been tough. Stupid question - was his helmet crushed and cracked or did he suffer all those breaks from internal impact? Could any head gear prevent such damage? ... more »

Added reply in a thread Ever ridden a factory bike or close to it? 1/18/2019 2:16 PM

Look at JS7 forks going thru the whoops. They were setup rock hard so the front end could skip over the tops at blazing speed. Not too many riders could take that. KR has a similar setup - hard compression in front, soft rebound in rear. It's partially ... more »

Take a look at cyclemeter. It's the best app I have used for cycling and would work well for riding. it is totally customizable and tracks things like heart rate (from iWatch), speed, mapping, elevation, ride time, viewing from the cloud, history, etc. ... more »

Added reply in a thread How Long until The masses mostly Ride electric? 11/9/2018 10:11 AM

A lot of electric transportation will become mainstream once they invent new battery technology. It needs to store more power per lb and charge way faster. Until the charge times are brought down to the 10 minute mark for bikes, cars etc., it ain't gonna ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2t or 4t 9/28/2018 11:43 AM

Will you be racing? It is easier to go faster on a 4T, which will cost more to fix when it becomes necessary. 2 T's are typically more fun to ride and easier/cheaper to fix, but harder to go as fast on. Depends on what type of riding you want to do.

Can that be done? Are there stats for mph? Or are you talking visuals?

Added reply in a thread ET vs JS vs RC 7/31/2018 12:12 PM

What I meant is that in last weekends race, I have never seen anyone rail those outside corners like ET. Maybe JS did from time to time, but ET seems to pull it out a lot more often. Herlings does the same thing. It's a whole different level of speed ... more »

In 2006 would it be fair to say that RC and JS were at their peak performance? Or was RC tapering off a bit and JS on the rise?

Added reply in a thread ET vs JS vs RC 7/30/2018 1:14 PM

Is there any chance Herlings or Cairoli will race Tomac?

Added reply in a thread ET vs JS vs RC 7/30/2018 8:13 AM

Fair enough. But at Washougal it sure seemed like ET was as fast as JS7 ever was in his prime. When ET has his flashes of brilliance, he is untouched on a dirt bike speed wise. You just don't see anyone capable of going that fast...

"You can't compare lap times from different times of the same day in motocross let alone from year to year." Understand, however if JB was 10 seconds a lap faster for example on the same track, that would be saying something, no?

Started new thread ET vs JS vs RC 7/30/2018 7:05 AM

Right now it looks like ET is the FMOTP. Wonder how he would compare to JS in his prime? Seeing that many of the MX tracks are the same and have the same/similar layouts over the years, is it reasonably possible to compare ET's lap times vs JS and/or ... more »

Is this the take out you mean? Doesn't look super aggressive. And Bowers was asking for it, as the start of the video shows.
