Reply to First Time In The History Of AMA Motocross... 9/1/2021 12:34 PM

Yep, Suzuki fortified their 125 forces with Larroco and L. Ward. That was the first pro AMA event I attended. I specifically remember Kiedrowski wadding it up on the drop-off/downhill. I can't remember if it was during practice but I feel like it was ... more »

It seemed like I was watching a helmet cam from ABC's Wide World of Sports.

Since electricity travels at nearly the speed of light in a vacuum, use the symbol for that speed--- " c ". Such an easy graphic.

Reply to Dave Arnold, with guest co-host Ricky Johnson, on the Whiskey Throttle Show. 3/8/2021 12:43 PM

The automatic transmission story was awesome. However, my favorite part was when the Japanese Honda exec met with Dave Arnold so Dave could request permission to sign RJ away from Yamaha, even though RJ had already signed it. Before they started talking ... more »

NICE!! I had no idea I lost out to you. Glad you got it and I'm really happy to see your career success. Time flies is right. YES, I remember KTMNelio, I think his name is Aaron Neal. Really cool dude from Colorado?

What's up goorider! Glad you parlayed your dealings with us, bottom dwellers, into a career with real people in the industry! That's as close as us mortals can get to being Ricky Carmichael. Yes, I remember all three of those guys. I tried to get a job ... more »

Reply to Should I relive the glory days? 8/18/2020 12:45 PM

Your "glory days" are still in your future. I look back now and think my 30's were the best combination of brains and brawn. As we age, the brains continue to advance. The brawn, not so much.

Reply to Credit where credit is due. 6/5/2020 2:49 PM

makmcguire simply established context by mentioning his critical stance on Tomac's results. A stance likely built by Tomac's previous results. In no way does he imply Tomac gives a crap about his opinion. It seems to me mak simply started a thread to ... more »

MC also over-jumped something and hurt his foot or ankle that year. I think it was Millville. He then pulled out of the next race because he didn't want to accept a poor result. I think the soundbite we hear of him talking about the fact that he could ... more »

I have to admit, I am an early to mid 80's works Honda fanboy... RL's JT gear and Scott Venturi googles are also my favorite.

You are correct. His factory Yamaha debut is scheduled for Glen Helen.

Reply to Chime in: Hangtown track layout - the wall 5/23/2018 8:02 AM

I particularly liked the replacement of the Fly 150. They were actually able to race in that section versus flying single file. Don't get me wrong, the Fly 150 was cool to see (a couple times). But it only added the excitement of big air. Regarding the ... more »

Reply to Bloss! 5/21/2018 12:55 PM

Yes, he impressed me big time. His 1st moto was just as impressive. From nearly last to 10th is pretty awesome.

Reply to Bulging disc advice 5/21/2018 8:03 AM

As soon as you can do some ab work, I would get moving on that. I ruptured my L5-S1 and the thing that helped me the most was having a very strong core. I have gotten away from keeping up with my core and I'm currently suffering the consequences. I had ... more »

Reply to Is Anderson still sick? 5/21/2018 7:15 AM

100% agree... This is exactly my point. Like I said earlier, he didn't lose time over a the entire moto. He suddenly slowed WAY down. So much so, it literally looked like he was going to pull off the track a couple times.

Reply to Is Anderson still sick? 5/20/2018 11:50 AM

If you take the results at "face value", I would agree with you guys who say this is where you expected him to finish. But the dude has won motos before and I wouldn't expect guys like Bloss and WP to make him look slow. It didn't surprise me when Barcia ... more »

Reply to Is Anderson still sick? 5/20/2018 8:57 AM

It was more than that... I wouldn't expect a "Supercross hangover" to cause him to lose that much time as quickly as he did. Especially to guys he normally handles. Like I said, they didn't simply beat him. They devoured him up and spit him out after ... more »

New thread Is Anderson still sick? 5/20/2018 8:34 AM

I was at Hangtown yesterday and saw some interesting things from him in the second moto. He was leading by a pretty good margin for quite some time. No one seemed to be catching him. At about the 15 minute mark, he seemed to drop anchor. I actually thought ... more »
