If he was paying to play, I'm sure he would have been in the 450 class where he could recoup more of the money.

Honda threw money at him to win a championship on the CRF250, promising a path to a 450 ride, then he got hurt. Then Sexton came along.

They're giving him as much support as they can without having him under their awning. He's riding a full factory bike with access to all their testing data and specs.

Nothing broken, just in a lot of pain per his Instagram.

I thought he said bulls at first, and was wondering how the hell someone has a bull problem.

Woodpeckers and moles, huh? Thanks for keeping us in the loop, Ralph.

Does Sherwin Williams cut Ralph a check for every mention of a color on the broadcast? He took about 30 seconds to find the right shade to describe Bailey's gear, landing on aqua. Personally, I'd say teal.

I was about to ask about this. Are they letting them put 2 bikes through tech to compensate? If a rider has any sort of bike trouble during a heat race, it's likely night over for them. Hell, it would be hard to change out a bent set of bars in 20 minutes ... more »

You drop a new motor in your daily driver every other oil change? If you take your filter off and no dirt has gotten through... no dirt has gotten through. I'm over 100 hours without a valve adjustment. A properly oiled filter does its job well.

This. For some reason I could never get out of the crate Kawis to read correctly until they had been run through the gears. They read low, so to be sure I drained the oil out of a few of them, and the correct amount came out. If I filled them to where ... more »

It was Red Bud 07, the last dance of Stewart vs Carmichael. I think I met you by the leap during practice, Rup, and talked Zeppelin for a bit. Raced amateur day (when it was the friday before the race) and it was crazy overwatered to make it nice for ... more »

Your 2nd sentence says it. I live at around 300 ft, and drove out to Colorado, slept at 8000 ft, and tried to climb a small crest nearby the next morning and was struggling for breath big time, had to stop about every 20 feet or so. It got better after ... more »

A silver lining for privateers that made the 40 rider cut is once you're there, no more cross country trips is a major savings in gas. Hopefully they get hotels paid for or a great deal.

Added reply in a thread Question about cornering technique 5/16/2020 7:36 AM

I remember seeing an article on RacerX sometime in the mid 2000s, describing watching Reed rail a bowl turn with both feet on the pegs, and wondering if this was the start of a new advancement in technique vs the traditional leg out.

So what? You asked why grocery stores aren't making their employees stay on site/in hotels and I gave an answer. Having a large group of people meeting, then flying back and forth to different parts of the country is a much different scenario than driving ... more »

Because their employees already live close enough to their place of work. Cashiers aren't flying in from California or Florida twice a week.
