I got my leg caught in a competitor's swingarm in a first turn crash at Gatorback in 89ish. Between the tire and the plastic shock guard on 80's. It's just one of those things that happens. Thankfully, I wasn't injured but they had to let the air out of his wheel and he raced the restarted race with a flat rear tire.

250 2 stroke vs 350 4 stroke. If they won't let us have equal displacement, then let's see how close these 2 are.

Just wondering... if Roczen decided he wanted a single digit, would he have been able to change his number this year? Or do you have to make the selection following your championship season? Say, could someone hold out for a certain number to open up and then take it once it becomes available?

I think the issue has more to do with only 2 classes. There needs to be an "entry" class you are required to race for 2 years minimum. Then you can move to the 250 class with the existing rules and eventually 450. I'd like to see the entry class be 125's but whatever works.

Hell, make the entry class a regional class both indoors and out. That would limit costs and if needed, they could have additional events in the region opposite of the main events. Say, when the pro MX is at Washougal, maybe they have an event at Monster Mountain for the 125 entry class along with possible "pro" classes of 250 and 450 for privateers who can't afford the travel out west. It could be a minor league series for guys to continue to gain experience and be more prepared when the tour comes back closer to home.

Would have been a great video if not for the music with explicit language right off the bat.

I have tons of respect for WP and what he has done. Guy has tons of drive and he gives it everything he has all the time. Perfect example of someone with a don't quit, work harder than everyone else attitude. I'd have to say he's my favorite current pro right now.

Would it make more sense to make this change for outdoors? Is he racing outdoors?

Interesting that the 2 stroke is a #259 Kawasaki... also the Alta has the Seven graphics package.

Could Plessinger or A Mart take a higher 2 digit # if they wanted? Like 99?

Eh... it's okay. Would like to see them make that one part a giant downhill double.

Thing of beauty, I like it very much. To make it more era specific, drop the"RM" off the front fender and get the red Susuki "S" with dark blue "SUZUKI" underneath it. All the factory bikes had it. Can't find the exact pic, but here is McGrath's version a few years later:
