Reply to Super-Mini Class Riders Announced for the Monster Energy Cup in Las Vegas 8/11/2011 8:07 AM

Well this should be interesting. Considering they were talking about a ramp jump... would a large ramp jump be "safe" for the smaller bikes? I guess it would but there would be no room for error... that, or they would have to divert these guys around ... more »

Sounds like par for the course. It seems to do that at least once each year.

Back in the early 90's, I can remember her daughter, Patsy, performing a concert for the racers one evening (92 or 93 IIRC). I'm not sure if Ms. Loretta ever did one.

I remember it used to be so cool to put the Scott sticker where the goggle strap would go. Also, I remember Keith Bowen's lid had a painted visor but he bit it in a corner and ruined the paint, hence the plain white one.

Why would DD want to step down to a factory Honda?

It would be like Kalos stepping down to a box van!

What a great video. Doug Henry is a model person we should all learn from.

If Barcia rode up the rest of the season on a 450 (he's not winning the title now) would he be able to drop back down next season if Honda wanted him to ride 250's?

This type of racing is just sick! I remember riding the "grand prix" series district 5 put on back in the early 90's where they would run the MX track backwards and add portions of the hare scramble course. It was raced on Saturdays before the Sunday ... more »

Reply to Best moto t-shirt.....ever? 7/25/2011 5:52 AM

Yep, that's the one! Had pink and blue paint all over it (neon was sooo cool!!). Actually, all my old Dirt Shirts from back in the day are still in excellent shape.

Reply to Best moto t-shirt.....ever? 7/25/2011 5:19 AM

My favorite one is from the High Point or Steel City nationals back in the early 90's. It was by Dirt Shirts. Had a picture of Damon Bradshaw in mid air from the front after a win whipping the bike and both feet off the pegs. On the back was the same ... more »

New thread Number question 7/14/2011 7:18 AM

If you saw my earlier post, you would know I've been away from the sport since the mid-90's. I've kept up with it a little bit and this year have really gotten back into watching and following everything. I have a question around pro numbers. When did ... more »

Well, I figured after lurking for a long time, this was as good a post as any to make my first. My first race was at Pyramid Valley Raceway (Lost Creek, WV) in 1985. I was on an air-cooled 1984 KX60. There were no other 60 riders so I got to race with ... more »
