Man, what’s the deal with dirt bike riders and decal fetish?

Talk all the smack about JGR you want, but we just lost the most recognizable name in motocross. There are way more people in this world that know the Joe Gibbs name than any other name in motocross. That name brought credibility to the sport.

Yes, Omepraze is a PPI. I took Prevacid for a few years without issue. Then my eyes started getting real dry with slight blurred vision and depth perception problems causing real problems on a MX track. I weened myself off Prevacid and my issues went ... more »

I was scheduled to have this surgery the week that COVID shut it all down. Probably have it done later this year. How was the recovery and how long before you rode again?

What a huge impact that guy had on so many Texas motocrossers. Rio Bravo was a dump when Danny obtained it and he slowly and methodically transformed it into a really good track with a great atmosphere. RIP Danny.

THE original American motocross hero! What a huge impact he had on the beginnings of MX in America. RIP Marty and Nancy.
