I've said it time and again...It's embarrassing to admit I am a MX/SX fan because of the demographic that is displayed on television.

it's not reputation. It's a fact. RD has been involved in much much less controversy than James. The biggest controversy RD has been a part of is his alleged overly clean riding.

Reply to Stew out. 1/9/2016 11:50 PM

Agreed. However, Stew is known for his involvement in controversial incidents like this. RD, on the other hand, rarely plays a part in these types of incidents.

Coincidentally, they both ride with less talent in the whoops than some of the others.

Reply to Some interesting new rules for the 2016 MXGP series. 10/8/2015 9:30 AM

Earning points in the qualifiers is valid in my opinion. It will definitely change the riders approach to Saturday. One of the things that we heard about RV's move to the GP's was that he may end up using too much energy on Saturdays. It was a valid ... more »

Reply to who would you hang with for a day and why 10/4/2015 9:02 PM

I would hang with Aldon Baker. The dude is in tight with a lot of top tiered racers and knows thier mental game. I would love to see how he manages each.

Not at all. His response has nothing to do with the thread content. His intent was clearly attention seeking. If bob's assessment was correct, no one would reply. Other than him, there were quite a few that deemed it "worth discussing". If you don't ... more »

Reply to Why do dealers do this? 10/3/2015 2:02 PM

The absolute key to buying a car, or a bike is to do your homework to figure out a fair OTD price for both you and the dealer. Approach them with that number and state that's what you'll pay. If they cant get to that number you need to walk. No negotiating. ... more »

If you don't want to discuss it, stay out. Your response was the equvilent to a streaker at a sporting event.

Reply to its ok if O Mara says it but... 10/2/2015 8:38 PM

Not to take anything away from O'Show but make sure someone mentions that Thorpe's front brake was toast.

Reply to What do you see in this picture? 10/2/2015 1:54 PM

I see a place for Nitro Circus to put on a show.

The outdoors-man in him motivated him to sign with ROKON. Pay attention to the upcoming news release. You'll see....

Who tried to undermine him? No one WANTS him to retire (broad generalization that is mostly accurate). Since RD isn't immortal, he will eventually have to hang up his head set. He may choose to hang them up in 5 years or even tomorrow. It will happen. ... more »

This thread has nothing to do with replacing RD for the purpose of winning. Although that is the desired result. I only asked because his retirement, though it's unknown when, is imminent.

Reply to De Coster's MXof N replacement 10/1/2015 8:36 PM

Very good points. Not sure DV would be good on the personnel side of things but I could be wrong. Maybe we could hijack JMB from the motherland one more time.

Reply to For the newbs: there is only 1 GOAT. Just because you "think" someone is dominant, he's not. 9/23/2015 10:39 AM

Every argument on this thread can be summed up with one word. "Perspective" IceMan's perspective is that MC was better than RC in SX and RC was better than MC in MX. Therefore, neither of them are the GOAT. My perspective of IceMan's opinion is that ... more »

Holy roost knuckles batman!!! You made it! Hey Brett, you may remember me from way back in the Ronronmx forums. We actually met at Glen Helen for a short time when I was on a business trip back in 2004 or so. You were there for the LL qualifier (I think). ... more »
