Not only should they count the 500 from the years the series was split, but also from all the years before that too. The 500’s were considered at least equal to the 250’s, and the factory teams would divide their best riders between the classes. These ... more »

Reply to Will KTM / WP ever give up on trying to reinvent the fork? 5/16/2021 2:23 PM

Coming off 5 years on yamahas I found the WP stuff on my 250SX to be better stock than I could ever get the KYB after multiple revalves. I actually really liked the air fork too, but did convert to spring just because most of my rides are 3-5 hours and ... more »

Pour into a funnel, but have the opening between 9-11 o’clock

Kudos to DV for stating the truth and not backing down. I thought Rut was an ok guy but just wrong for the supercross broadcast. After hearing him speak, I have changed my mind about the ok guy part

Reply to James Stewart: How Many Races Did He Lead and Crashed? 3/18/2021 4:26 AM

I don’t think he lead and crashed as much as he crashed trying to get to the lead. The ones that stick in our memories though are the ones where he crashed out of the lead like Daytona or the one where he hooked his front brake on the hay bale (Budds?). ... more »

Jambalaya, you make a good point. I don't think James will be forgotten because he not only was fast as hell, but he did things that were so jaw dropping and dangerous looking that I don't think will ever be replicated. But, his glow will diminish over ... more »

ODI Rogue’s work good for me and I wear a XXL glove. Another option would be Oury, they are probably the fattest.

Great show again Ping. Those guys really made you appreciate how fun, how tough, and how dangerous moto can be. I was thinking the other day that I can’t remember ever hearing a podcast with Josh Grant. I think his story would be very interesting, he ... more »

Reply to BREAKING NEWS - NFL reverts shoulder pad policy change. 2/21/2021 4:25 AM

Creative and well written, but long way to say JMart should not be hurt right now. I don’t disagree Before anyone says it, JMart was hit in the back. I know. There are good shoulder pads that protect there too.

I'm really not into freestyle at all but holy hell that was amazing. Literally watched it with my jaw dropped, and I'm going to watch it again right now. The kid is so talented he makes that stuff look so easy.....

Honestly I think it’s just smile police. They want everyone to be as miserable as they are.

Reply to The weirdest factory bike I’ve ever seen! 2/4/2021 4:54 AM

I raced an ATK406 with their torque eliminator system in 90 or 91 in both moto and hare scrambles. I remember that I really liked that suspension a lot, in both environments. I also remember being able to charge right at 10” logs and the bike would not

Go out by yourself and spend a day testing. Set your sag and put the fork to the recommended pressure. Then go all the way out on your shocks rebound. Ride around and see how that feels. Then go all the way in and see how that feels. Put the rebound ... more »

Not sure if it’s a best or worst, but here’s a pic my mom actually took of me way back in 83’ at Pepperel. Hit neutral on the jump face, got knocked out and broke my collarbone, and had amnesia for a couple days too. Learned to never shift ... more »
Reply to Your Dream Factory MX Bike 12/31/2020 5:30 AM

Can you imagine being a rider on another team, sitting in staging looking at the Honda boys and their bikes back then? It would take a lot of mental strength to believe you even had a chance. So damn trick!!

Reply to Its gonna be a long off season 10/13/2020 4:13 AM

It would never happen in these times, but imagine how cool it would be to see AC, Zacho, or Chase do an MXGP. This kind of stuff happened regularly back in the 80’s and 90’s, but modern programs leave no wiggle room to do it 😕

Reply to Anyone ride trails in Michigan? 9/11/2020 9:24 AM

My ride group has done a few trips up to the U.P. Over the years. It used to be awesome. Not sure what happen, but we went up last summer and found that most of the trails were overgrown and had not been maintained at all. The quad and sxs paths on the ... more »

Reply to MX Lessons, are they worth it? 5/18/2020 4:44 AM

Of course lessons are worth it and will help lay a solid foundation for you. But most importantly you just need to spend time on the bike and in a low pressure setting. Find a field and set up a turn track and ride it until your tank is dry. Reverse ... more »
