Added reply in a thread What's more appealing? 9/16/2019 5:27 AM

RBSR for me. There is so much more excitment and enthusiasm. It's a decent and unusual event, unlike MEC. MEC sucks. Partly because of the company whose idea it was and partly because they don't have enough class to think of a decent event like Red Bull ... more »

I always remember those Rattray edition 125's sounding so crisp. I've never heard a 'stock' bike sound so good.

Added reply in a thread What immediately throws you off when looking for a used bike? 9/15/2019 7:07 AM

Spelling mistakes on adverts. Especially when they can't even correctly spell the model of bike they are selling!

If Travis had the knees and fitness for a full moto, I wonder how he would do against the EMX125 riders in Europe?

Added reply in a thread In what order are you most excited for the start of a series? 9/12/2019 1:11 AM

RBSR is first by a country mile. Then MXON. After that the others now are just a snooze fest so they don't register for me.

There is some stuff you can't get away from, unfortunately. It's not like there is much of a choice when it comes to technology. I'm a fan of avoiding china and chinesium alloys as much as possible.

Added reply in a thread Best looking RM 8/24/2019 4:54 AM

Travis Pastrana's 2001 rm125 always looked amazing. It's probably my most favorite looking bike ever and that's coming from a kawasaki only owner.

"Don't race outdoors" - which is very sad considering that's what they started doing in order to get where they are.

Rubbish. If a rider worth his weight in gold truly wanted to do a race then his team wouldn't stop them. Do you think Kawi could have stopped RV from going to Europe? The brand wants the rider (to win a championship) not a rider wanting the brand. They ... more »

Gladly. I'm happy for him to email me as to why this isn't the case. I'm not above eating humble pie if indeed I am wrong.

Added reply in a thread No MXoN for Kawasaki 8/9/2019 10:26 AM

Don't get me wrong, I wasn't saying it was remotely practical, but they could do it if they wanted to prove a point to Kawi. In fairness to stock bikes, wasn't Tommy Searle running a stock engine in last years mxdn and doing quite well? I like Eli and ... more »

It's the brand that wants a rider, not the other way around. So the rider has the power.

Added reply in a thread No MXoN for Kawasaki 8/9/2019 10:05 AM

You must also feel the same about privateers who pay their own way to race.

Added reply in a thread No MXoN for Kawasaki 8/9/2019 9:52 AM

They risk their career and injury every time they ride, so that's a moot point. Kawasaki wanted Eli and AC, not the other way around. They hold the power into riding the event.

Added reply in a thread No MXoN for Kawasaki 8/9/2019 9:41 AM

I don't like mxgp and much prefer the US nationals (I hate SX). It may be the reason so many top euro riders go to America is to better themselves and are up for a challenge. You can only claim to be the fastest if you're willing to race anybody and ... more »

Added reply in a thread No MXoN for Kawasaki 8/9/2019 8:36 AM

In no way I am saying MXGP is run well or the person who runs it is a saint, because he's not. He does drag people to some shit locations! The reason more Euro riders ride in America could well be down to finance. Or maybe they are braver and more confident ... more »

Added reply in a thread No MXoN for Kawasaki 8/9/2019 7:53 AM

Perhaps because the euro riders prefer to race the fastest riders in the world? Perhaps because they don't like the utter snooze fest that is stupid cross?

Added reply in a thread Kx125 vs yz125 8/9/2019 6:26 AM

Depends what year Kawi, but if it's 04+ then it won't be slower power wise. According to MXA's dyno, the kx made more bhp than the yz. (I know power is only part of the equation)
