Reply to TRIUMPH Announces Coming Line Of MX and Enduro Bikes, Carmichael to Test 7/20/2021 7:39 AM

So if you're Triumph, you have a clean slate to start with. I think they take each existing bike and determine the pros/cons. To me... the biggest decision will be weather to go with a steel or aluminum frame. Personally, I'd start by mimicking KTM steel ... more »

I haven't seen one added inside a trailer but I'm sure it's possible. I have seen people do the "sun shower" thing outside with a take heated by sunlight and gravity flow.

New thread Supercross Series Format 5/2/2021 11:47 AM

One of the things I do like is the races that host over multiple days. It seems like a logistics positive for the teams and is likely cheaper overall. I'd still like to see more total venues but maybe 2 or 3 stops should be multiple event races moving ... more »

Reply to How old were you guys when your parents stopped bringing you to the track? 1/26/2021 6:51 AM

My parents went to pretty much all the races with me. I had my own track on our property as well but never rode unless someone was home. After I turned 16, I did go with friends once or twice but I never went to a race alone. One time I went with a friend ... more »

NBC is f'ing up several things. They took The Golf Channel and moved the studios from Orlando to golf mecca Connecticut. They axed most of the staff and kept a couple simply because their contracts weren't up. They produce zero new content aside from ... more »

If I could go back and talk to my younger self... I'd tell my younger self to listen to my dad and wear the navy blue and gun metal grey stuff he suggested. As much as I loved the bright colors, they got dirty looking really quick. Looking back at old ... more »

Understanding Barcia's shifter issue, I'd throw him in as well.

Yeah, meant to say this is points pending any penalties. But if anything, it may help bring the group even tighter.

New thread 2 rounds in and its anyone's game... 1/20/2021 5:09 AM

So round 2 allowed Eli to get right back into the mix. If my calculations are correct, he is only sitting 4 points off the lead of Roczen. Absolute best case scenario after his round 1 performance. Having 3 completely different guys on the podium has ... more »

Used to be a normal thing for pros to race off season events. Englishtown, Gatorback, Florida Winter Series, Golden State Nationals.
