There's about 30 seconds of video starting at 8:12 that is some of the best MX footage I've ever seen. Nothing but body positioning and power application and balls. The whole thing video is really excellent stuff!

Hunter Lawrence dropped his fastest lap on the last lap and it was more than 1/2 second faster then the next fastest time. He made up about 5 seconds on 3rd place in 2 laps. Crazy good ride for the kid. He's legit.

I'm a first year F1 follower. I watched a little of the timing/qualifying sessions, watched the Netflix series and have been reading some online stuff from Twitter and FB groups. Feel like I sort of understand the series and teams and the drivers. Any ... more »

I'm researching something similar: max $1000 MTN Bike for mostly flat trails and light single track rides. I'm settling on this so for: Trek Marlin 7 link)

Same with me - got excited when I saw that Peacock was free for Xfinity subscribers but eventually figured out that we only have Xfinity for Internet and that doesn't get us Peacock.

I have an excellent pair of binoculars and I'm mostly just looking for an excuse for a Motorcycle ride. I have the NBC Gold app on my phone and will also watch/listen that way too. I like a little adventure!

I live about 45 Miles South of Denver and was thinking about going up to check out the races today. The tickets they were going to sell are sold out but was wondering if any locals know if the track is visible with binoculars from the park across the ... more »

Howdy Neighbor. I live off Baptist road.

Reply to Abandoned Colorado Private Track 10/1/2020 5:44 PM

That was fast! Thanks for the history lesson! There's an active track right on the edge of Palmer Lake. I stopped by on street bike when someone was getting ready to ride and asked about it and they said the same thing: Private track that sold memberships ... more »

On older versions of Microsoft Windows when you clicked the start button to shut down, the background of the screen would fade out/darken and a windows box showed in the middle of the screen. I worked in a office back then and when someone walked away ... more »

I'm trying to like Sexton and his riding is great but he really needs to work on being less whiny. Hard to feel good about him when every interview includes a bitchy/whiny/negative topic. Just Sayin'

I'm 52 and I'm 1.5 years into a full right hip replacement and I agree with everything posted so far except I did have a posterior procedure and it healed crazy-fast like Sumdood's Anterior procedure. The doc had a legit reason for going in through my ... more »

First time I went a ton and half was on a bike just like this. Crazy the shit we did when we were young.

Reply to Anyone ride road bikes too? Naked streetbikes 4/10/2020 7:52 PM

This thing puts a smile on my face every time I throw a leg over it. 2015 Ducati Monster 1200. It is NOT a bike you want to use to learn how to ride in the street. Crazy acceleration but great manners for so much power. I live in the foothills of Rocky

I rode street bikes until my brother got me into dirt bikes when I was in my mid 30's in the late 90's so my pics aren't quite the same as some folks. You'll note the stylish Red Wing work boots, work gloves, jeans, street helmet and even a sweat rag

That was a perfect overview for me - thanks.

I sorta forgot that the "Speak with my Wallet" thing started out about 2 strokes. This place is hard to pay attention to sometimes.

I think you helped me make up my mind - That sounds like the bike for me. Not sure I'd add all farkles (mostly due to budget constraints) but that is the general direction I'm leaning. Thanks!

Reply to Help me speak with my wallet 3/5/2020 11:44 AM

Now there's an idea!

Do you use all of those 500 cc's or would a smaller KTM in the EXC line be enough power? 500 cc's on a dirt bike seems like a lot of bike to throw around but that's not really based on any experience.
