Ebikes are great for disabled people and older people who both want to ride. For younger able body riders...oh dear. God gave you legs, use them! If you don't want to work hard or feel the leg burn then why pick mtb'ing?

Nice looking set up. Some similarities to Formula 1 places like Red Bull and (what was) Caterham.

So much optimism right there... I bet you're fun at parties, assuming you get invites. Screw the negative Nancy's. Good luck with the build! It's always cool to see something different.

The best black Yamaha (imo) was Zach Osborne's 2010 Dixon yz250f.

There's a French company who make carbon fiber triple clamps for off road bikes. They can make them for OEM companys. It would be cool if TM teamed up with them. Even greater eye candy then!

Sorry, I read your post wrongly. I read it as designers know best and people who like plain graphics are simpletons.

You are kidding, right? Have you seen some of the 'designs' in the last few years?! Most of them now consist of logos just slapped around - a visual puke fest. Geico (thankfully) seem to be following the K.I.S.S rule - Keep It Simple Stupid.

I like it. I think it harks back to late 90's/ early 00's in terms of simpler looking graphics. The only thing I would be tempted to do is make the fuel tank black.

I'm on the side of wanting to know weights. If I was a company making a decent product then I'd want people to know its weight.

I started off excited because of the break between the series and then after the first race I'm bored silly and can't wait for mx to return.

They did it before honda in the form of the sxs and sxs-f bikes from the early to mid 00's. That's what they should do again. Would be more factory edition that the stuff they've been churning out.

From how this thread reads, I don't think beating the bush is localriders' thing.

No toilet - hence my appropriate term crap hole. Just kidding. Not quite sure what not having toilets has to do with it. That is just as much about their backwards culture. You really are one hell of a negative Nancy. Thankfully there are people out ... more »

Just because 2 crap hole countries love to pollute means everyone should give up and do nothing? To be fair to India they do have some good practices, like their use of a plastic based tarmac for roads. Hell, that doesn't even happen in the UK and we're ... more »

Added reply in a thread How WADA dicks over respondents -> 11/9/2018 3:31 AM

Serious question - what's stopping racing bodies like the AMA from just ignoring WADA? That's if they feel WADA are not fit for purpose. Also, can WADA actually do anything if a racing body ignores them?

Haha, you're not alone there! It's a lovely bit of kit. Don't forget to add in the cost of having a fork lug machined with the radial mounting.

You certainly can buy it off the shelf. You just need a factory riders salary to afford one! https://www.omniaracing.net/en/brembo-racing-left-cnc-2628-40mm-wheelbase-pitch-radial-calipers-for-motocross-p-5255.html
