I would think he has picked up a bit on in over the past few years working with Dylan.

He's a Minnesota guy who started out working at a local shop I buy bikes from. It's cool to see someone go from a mechanic at a shop in a town of ~3,000 people to the top of the sport.

Jorgensen got DQ'd in 450 B limited and just won the 250B limited title

Give these guys at Loretta's the credit they deserve. Milt (the only guy from MN in 50+) usually wins 50A at Millville and he's not cracking the top 20 at Loretta's. I'm not talking crap on Milt at all, he absolutely rips.

Depends on the moisture. If its packable, I prefer to fill it in and pack it. If there's no moisture, I'll get the loose stuff out or dig until I find grip.

Added reply in a thread Question for those who wear the 6D ATR-2. 6/24/2021 6:52 AM

Find a way to try them on. I went from the Moto9 to the ATR-1 and switched back to the Moto9 as it was more comfortable. They both are great helmets so it really just comes down to what fits your head.

If I had a dollar for every time I heard someone say they'll be better once they get east, I could afford a new bike with all the fees and tax that these stealerships are charging /s

Added reply in a thread Additional $1225 in fees over MSRP for new bikes? Really? 5/25/2021 10:28 AM

Build relationships with your local dealers. My local guy will show his invoice sheet to anyone who asks and barley charge more than that + tax. A lot of the dealers are out there to screw you, but there's also a lot of great people who love the sport ... more »

Added reply in a thread Local Racing... What really grinds my gears. (South Carolina) 4/21/2021 11:46 AM

The classes for kids getting into the sport and teaching them the fundamentals, which have arguably the most consistent and highest turnouts, are pointless? Regarding the entertainment factor, you literally could say the same for 90% of the classes at ... more »

Added reply in a thread Local Racing... What really grinds my gears. (South Carolina) 4/21/2021 10:30 AM

You want to eliminate the 50cc and 65cc classes at the local for a shorter tract day, and expect the sport to have sustainable long term growth? Do that and you'll have a really short race day in 5-10 years. Plus, where would they get practice for LL ... more »
