Added reply in a thread This is what e-bike racing sound like 7/21/2019 12:14 AM

Pro BMX and MTB is exciting to spectate. Pedal power. Watching the rider and the bike. Motocross is not asphalt slot car racing, completely different. Electric MX bikes will bring the sport back to the suburbs. Stadiums will sound different, crowd participation ... more »

Bring back works bikes for pro competition. However, amateur (and consumer) motocross performance constraints must acknowledge suspension technology progress. Suspension technology is a core part of Motocross and should remain so. But slow the bikes ... more »

Beautiful. Good on ya. But there will always be some of us with kids silly enough to ride dirt bikes. Riding dirt bikes is like sex. If it wasn’t so much fun no one would be silly enough to do it

Wrestle a swamp dog (crocodiles). Actually no, don’t do that. And don’t swim at dusk or dawn (bull sharks will nail you). And don’t swim in ANY creeks if FNQ unless they are definitely croc free. And don’t swim in the ocean in FNQ in summer (deadly jelly ... more »
