Several. Cost of four strokes, the time suck of peewee racing, etc... These are real issues for some people. You can say "Hey get over it" all you want, but the reality is the people just won't participate. Mock them all you want, but you are still left ... more »

The problem is every one of those reasons you discounted are real issues for someone else. You add them all up, and a lot people quit doing it. It's pretty damn simple. Make it more fun than the alternative, and people will do it again.

I wish we had those around here.

I stayed 18. It certainly did take some internal debate to get there though! At the end I really think it looks a lot more legit, and I'm not out turning moto after moto for the MXoN on this. I started off aiming for about an 80% stock bike, but then ... more »

Yeah, the point is I don't want that kind of bike.

Well that's a fucking shame. Just a dirt bike rider is way cooler. If you happen to race also, that's dandy.

There's a lot of people on this thread that get it, and a lot that don't. At the end of the day, the entire point is to have fun riding our dirt bikes. It's gotten completely lost in all sorts of nitpicking and post mortems. You know what my favorite ... more »

No excuse, I have other shit I need/want to do. You probably shouldn't assume other people want to blow a whole Sunday there. I socialize in myriad other ways as well.

What else do you have going on on Sunday's that are better than being at the track, hanging outside with your friends riding and bench racing? A fucking shitload.

Yeah, me as well, great color matching. I recommend UFO for plastic.

Fuck that. I'll race again when manufacturers quit pushing 10k 4 stroke spaceships. Until then everyone should quit racing and only ride for fun.

You can definitely judge a book by its cover. Might not be the whole story, but it's gonna be a big part of it.
