Reply to Banners, out of control? 8/29/2010 7:37 AM

I totally agree. I am 6'4" and although I enjoyed the racing and the track was awesome, the viewing was tough. Very true that in many spots I could only see from the seat up as the riders went by and had no idea who they were. That needs to be addressed. ... more »

Reply to Ok, time for some bike porn again (your own machine or whatever). 8/26/2010 8:24 AM

My home made 2010 KTM 200SX. It's a 2010 150SX chassis with a 2004 200SX motor, ignition, exhaust etc. ... more »
Reply to not a fan of the new dilla track.. 8/16/2010 10:36 AM

The last time I raced there was a long time ago (other than doing the GNCC). I think it was 1991 and they still were leaving the track year to year and letting the grass cover everything. It was a lot of fun, the track changed a lot as the grass got ... more »

Reply to 2 Strokes alive in New England 8/12/2010 10:14 AM

The cylce is almost complete. Once the 125 class makes its return (and hopefully it won't take too long) it will be like it always has been in the past; 125 class, 250 class and open class. Anyone who thinks a 450 is not an open bike is crazy. And for ... more »

Reply to Pro ATV's faster than Pro bikes at redbud! 8/4/2010 9:13 AM

I can probably ride my bicycle just as fast with training wheels on it as I can without. But I grew up and learned how to balance on just two wheels so I ditched them. Quads are for tards, period. And if you ride one and don't think you look like a tard ... more »

Reply to Southwick, WTF... 6/13/2010 5:02 PM

I live a few minutes from the track and it poured all night long here. Being that the whole track is hilly there are usually washouts all over the place. That, and it costs too much to groom it for an open practice where sometimes they get too many people ... more »

Reply to Is the 350 REALLY 350cc? 5/28/2010 5:09 AM

Can't even believe I'm wasting time reading this stupid thread. Two points; Not only do you need to use the stock cases, but you also need to have stock bore and stroke. And second, do you really think a manufacturer who's future is riding on this would ... more »

Reply to Full Floater back in production! 5/27/2010 9:04 AM

To this day I haven't ridden a rear suspension that worked as well as the Full FLoater did. Maybe that's because it was such a huge step up from what we rode before it. I have an old RM500 I'm going to eventually restore just to see how good it really ... more »

Reply to This is it!!!! 150sx against 250Fs!!!! 5/25/2010 6:06 AM

There are three reasons I see the two stroke making a comeback. Most important, cost. Cost to buy, cost to modify, cost to maintain, plus the money you lose when you sell a worthless pile of crap at the end of the season (who really wants to buy a used ... more »

Reply to De Dycker wins Hangtown 5/21/2010 9:49 AM

I didn't know they were going to have a novice class at Hangtown. Seriously, I know he's fast. But everytime I see him ride I am shocked that a guy can go that fast who looks as if he has no idea how to ride a motorcycle. Always leaning too much, elbows ... more »

Reply to KTM's chromoly frame, 5/19/2010 12:44 PM

That must be a modern four stroke way of thinking. Looking at your bike instead of riding it your valves will last way longer. Seriously though, if you run a skid plate and the standard KTM frame guards almost no paint wears off their frame that's visible. ... more »

thanks for the info

New thread FREECASTER? 5/17/2010 8:24 AM

Went to check out some of the GP action from yesterday on the "Freecaster"? web site. Apparently it's no longer free. Maybe they should change their name to moneycaster. I'll miss watching an occasionla GP, but not enough to pay for it.

Reply to CCM Factory riders not to attend USGP 5/13/2010 9:16 AM

It does suck that they won't attend, part of what makes a GP so cool is all the different machinery. I did always think though that CCM got it backwards running Yamaha engines in KTM based chassis'. Isn't KTM known to build the best motors, and isn't ... more »

Reply to Danny Magoo Chandler Has Passed..... 5/5/2010 6:16 AM

Danny was always a hero of mine. Not that I wanted to ride like him, the crash photos of him were horrifying. But to have the heart and determination he had was always something I worked at. This is very sad news for me, it will be a tough day. And I ... more »

Reply to RV's Ride; Langston or Wey?? 5/4/2010 6:14 PM

Anyone who counts out Langston is crazy. Who's gonna beat him? There are a few who could but each are just as questionable. Reed seems off pace this year. Millsaps too inconsistent. Grant just coming off injury and has never been a title contender. Alessi ... more »

Reply to OH snap, so the females rule got yanked? 4/9/2010 9:02 AM

I was still holding out hope that clearer heads would prevail and the cc for cc rule would be accepted at all levels eventually. This shows that it is still headed in the wrong direction. Why can't they level it so people have a choice? Do we really ... more »

Reply to AMA should let 250 2 Stroke in Lites Class 3/4/2010 5:13 AM

The reason this keeps coming up is that there is still life in it. More and more people are returning to two strokes and loving it. I'd love to see the 250 class open to the two strokes at the pro level. Then there would be an influx of new technology ... more »

Reply to In defense of Erin Bates 3/1/2010 1:24 PM

I thought this weekends coverage was the best yet. The on the line interviews and that Villopoto interview made such a big difference. I know as a racer that giving time for an interview on the line must be very hard, but these guys are making a living ... more »
