Some are, but not the top guys' bikes. They are many multiples of a stock bike's cost

Bummer for Jake. Victim of another Honda bucking?

Spot on! I too only have the same options....and a few years ago I purchased Dish's tailgater for our trailer and own the receiver that goes with it. Ever since last winter when I got their Hopper and it rarely records SX. I thought it was because they ... more »

Reply to Another Ken Roczen Update: Latest Elbow Surgery 2/24/2017 7:30 PM

I'm not a doctor, but I've been Dr. Viola's patient through multiple surgeries. Heres a few thoughts: Regarding the potential loss of his arm, tcallahan707 is spot on. It was due to compartment syndrome. Thats why Dr. Viola operated on him Sunday night....about ... more »

Loved seeing Ryan just talkin about his past and giving us a glimpse into his life. Thanks for sharing the vid!

Reply to Race Length - next year 2/22/2017 7:48 PM

And the past lap 20 issue is what prompted me to post this. The missing word is 'yet'. And yes, I know, for example, that RV2 crashed with 9 laps to go in St. Louis in 2010 after spinning on plywood, so its not a new issue, but the problem is exacerbated ... more »

New thread Race Length - next year 2/22/2017 8:15 AM

Heres my prediction...race length will go back to being determined by the number of laps completed. Why do I say this? Because tracks can't hold up to the additional traffic. Heck...they couldn't hold up before (e.g. Villopoto's 2010 crash in St. Louis) ... more »

I've not watched one of those pressers before, but did you guys notice how fidgety Ryan was? Quite the contrast to both Eli and Marvin. It seems out of character for him to be like that. I mean, he reminded me of a little kid who can't sit still...and ... more »

Reply to Another Ken Roczen Update: Latest Elbow Surgery 2/20/2017 10:59 PM

Nothing like what Ken is going through, but his surgeon (Dr. Viola) worked on both of my wrists multiple times and got me fixed up. If anyone can do it, Dr Viola can. He is a perfectionist, but Ken's injuries have obviously been severe and there is only ... more »

Reply to Bike Security - Pickup Bed 2/20/2017 10:37 PM

I have a big log chain and I run it through the frame of each bike and padlock it to the built in tiedown points in the bed of the truck. Another thing I'll do is put a padlock through the rear rotor. Then I park it under a light if possible....but not ... more »

Reply to so .... whats wrong with dungey? 2/19/2017 7:53 PM

It does seem to me too that Dungey has been off the pace just a tad ever since Roczen's crash. Why, I don't know, but its likely a combination of things. When Roczen crashed, it seemed that Dungey had it wrapped up...'all' he had to do was ride his laps ... more »

Reply to Quick Tire Change - Webb 2/13/2017 8:39 AM

Agree about Webb slowing the tire with his hand. Why didn't mechanic push on the brake instead? I also agree that you'd think they'd have an impact gun ready with right sized sockets just in case. Then again, how many tire changes do they do mid-race... ... more »

^^^ +1 I think Jenny does a great job and I love watching her smile as the guys answer her questions, etc.

Reply to Who agrees with Anderson's DQ? 1/22/2017 6:25 AM

Revise the rules such that the penalty fits the crime. Here is an analogy for you....you get caught speeding for the first time and lose your license for a year. Did you deserve a penalty? Yes. That severe of one? No. Thats where the problem is.

Reply to Roczen 1/22/2017 6:21 AM

Where do you get off criticizing Dungey for his post race comments? He says that every week! He is talking about himself even though he uses the word 'us'. I believe he uses 'us' because its the entire team he is talking for. As for Ken...you wanna know ... more »

Reply to Roczen, JS7 1/22/2017 5:47 AM

I thought too, at the beginning of the year....IF he doesn't crash, it will be an exciting year of racing between Dungey and him. Dungey knows that its not a sprint. Thats why every season he strives to get through the first couple races in good shape, ... more »

Reply to Who agrees with Anderson's DQ? 1/22/2017 5:33 AM

I disagree with the DQ. The penalty should fit the crime. A pop to the helmet should deserve some punishment, but not DQ for the rest of the evening. Push him to the LCQ...impose a monetary fine...impose a time penalty afterwards....anything besides ... more »
