Reply to Husky Tx 300i vs Fx 350 9/13/2021 8:54 AM

swordfish, there is plenty of information out there that confirms tpi is gone. Sure, it may not be an official announcement, but the writing has been on the wall now for some time.

Good luck and enjoy GuyB. You’ve created something here like no other. For someone with an insatiable appetite for moto content there is no peer. Sure, you’ve gotta learn how to weed through some of it, and hone your BS meter, but that’s all part of ... more »

If you decide to go with the 300, you might wait for a 23’ as they’re moving away from the tpi and going to a throttle body injection, even on the SX model. I’ve got a few friends with tpi’s and two run good, one runs like crap and it’s been through ... more »

Reply to Favorite Moto Movie Scene 9/7/2021 6:55 PM

The opening scene from On Any Sunday always gets me, but the thing that popped into my head first was Seth’s dune crash in Crusty and the music playing ‘you’re gonna die, you’re gonna rag doll, rag doll!’ That scene and that movie fueled a generation! ... more »

RIP Joe. If I remember right we both had the same first race bike, a 78 YZ80. Always hoped to see more of him here again, he was a solid contributor. Sad news

Reply to Tell US, About The Most Unconventional, Most Unusual Bike, You Ever Raced ? 8/5/2021 5:35 AM

Being 6’3” and over 200 pounds I always liked open bikes. I raced KX500’s for a while, then had a KTM500, and even a KTM550. But the strangest bike I raced would be an ATK406. I raced several local motos and even some harescrambles on it, and trail rode

If he’s still riding that well I’d think the adventure thing would not peg the fun meter. Do some research and go to Colorado or Idaho for a week of singletrack riding. Camp right in the national forest and spend your nights by the campfire and your ... more »

Nice work as always Tom, and that Sexton series is crazy!

Oneonta is a cool town relatively close but there’s nothing within 30-45 minutes minimum

Reply to All Time USA Premier Class Winners 6/4/2021 4:15 AM

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

“Learning lesson”

Reply to Rutledge Wood 3/18/2021 5:14 PM

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 »

Reply to JS7 from DV934's Insta 3/12/2021 4:56 AM

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 »

Reply to Large diameter grip search 3/10/2021 5:56 PM

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

Reply to Dave Castillo and Regis Harrington on the Whiskey Throttle Show 2/28/2021 8:06 PM

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.
