Astroturfing? If it was a PC phone case, Mitch would use real sod for sure.

Added reply in a thread Have you ever used your front brake in the air... 10/9/2019 7:31 PM

Ok, that makes more sense when I re-read your other post. I can't imagine not covering the controls, but I can understand how a lot of guys aren't comfortable braking down the backsides of jumps. I still remember the first time I figured it out. I was ... more »

I think they are supposed to heal in six to ten weeks if everything goes perfectly. I broke at least one on July 25th at the local spot. It was clicking and crunching and broken for sure. I couldn't lay on either side to sleep without it shifting and ... more »

Added reply in a thread Have you ever used your front brake in the air... 10/9/2019 7:05 PM

I cover mine pretty often and land with it on when it's a benefit to brake down the backside of a landing. You really have to be comfortable with the modulation and setup of your front brake, fork setup and tire pressure to get away with it consistently.

The closest scenario in my memory is the Montreal Supercross this year. In Montreal they had a lane in each direction, then crossed back through the first turn... I tried to find some footage, all I could find with the start are the quads racing it.

A JGR mechanic, a new brand (not Suzuki)... Wouldn't that also leave the possibility that JGR is exploring other brands than Suzi? If they were to find some funding from another title sponsor, they can run any brand they want. They have been (in the ... more »

I'd love to see a Kenny or Hanson lap time compared to a Bowers or TP199 lap time. Are there lap times posted somewhere?

You are so right on the money with that comment. Chassis geometry was pretty well figured out by the mid 1990's. Suspension by the mid 2000's. The past three to five years have seen the perfection of the 450F engine (especially a reduction in engine ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2020/2019 KX450 to replace Husky FC450 Rockstar Edish 10/7/2019 12:23 AM

You won't miss that Husky. I've ridden the Husky with cone valve back to back with a bone stock KX450 (black coupler) and thought the Kawi was a superior bike. Get some springs and a set of ARC levers on the green bike and have a happy life.

When they brought out that lumberjack, I turned to my buddy and said: "Now we know where they got the new sound technology". It sounded to us like they mic'd up that timbersport guy and had him cut up a cord of wood in the parking lot. The racing was ... more »

Added reply in a thread Big bore 2stks RBSR 10/4/2019 12:45 PM

Jeff, that's interesting to me that you feel so strongly about the 250cc vs 300cc for moto. I have a few 250 two strokes and a "300cc" big bore kit with extensive port work for one of them. When I raced it for a season and switched back to the 250, I ... more »

On one of the PulpMX shows with RV as a guest, the topic of all those KTMs having 300cc engines came up. He didn't bring it up, but when asked he said something like: I'll be showing up on a 250, if any of those other pussies want to run a 300, that's ... more »

That track is just re-opening after being shut down for a while. You have to understand that the attitude toward motorsports in southern California is completely different to what we expect anywhere else. It's definitely changing for the worse, but traditionally,

Can we have rider to rider communication too? "Hey dickhead, get out of the way!"

Hilarious. DV is great. It's publicly known that they can run whatever they want, so bring on the big bores. I'm glad there will be a few guys (TP and Bowers) running a 500.

Added reply in a thread Is it time to change the rules? 10/1/2019 10:11 PM

All they need to do is add a low volume manufacturer exemption. Another option is to change the number from 400 motorcycles (or whatever it is) to a percentage of their motocross models in that dispacement class available to the public. Let's say for ... more »

I have never done a back to back comparison on rim width alone, but have compared 110 and 100 and 120 tires over the years. Personally I wouldn't run a 120 tire on a 250cc bike ever because I don't like what it does to the handling. I think the 250F ... more »
