Added reply in a thread Your squid-liest moments 8/8/2020 6:38 AM

A few years ago at Woodland MX (mud race) in Washington I came across the finish line , got sideways and completely ate crap. Of course this is also the part of the track where everyone stands to watch. The flagger just stood there looking at me, and ... more »

Added reply in a thread Changing your riding style 8/6/2020 8:08 AM

Probably one of the things I enjoy the most about moto is trying to evolve my style, even as an old fart. Watch the pros, get as much off track video as you can of yourself and try to do what they are doing (much slower of course!) Getting coaching is ... more »

Added reply in a thread Stats that define top riders 6/25/2020 7:14 AM

I think the other piece of that if you are looking at true legend status is titles indoors and out in the premier class. That's why this SX title was so important to Eli's legacy, it filled in that gap. When you look at guys who only have titles from ... more »

We are like the "Dislocated Shoulder Club" in here- yeah, I was pretty sure that is what had happened, also based on way too many personal experiences....

Wonder what happens if he comes here and is leading points after a few rounds?

I just had a friend message me from Dreamville today - 350 entries and more than 20 in the A class!

Look at all those +40 guys!!! I am jealous! We had 8 in +45 and 6 in +40 this weekend atvmy local race and it was double our normal turnout!

Added reply in a thread High end boots over rated!?!?!? 5/19/2020 7:17 AM

Been wearing Tech 3s for about 5 years now. I wear then until the sole wears out, then I pick up another like new pair on ebay for under $100. I race 20-ish events a year, multiple classes. I've never had a complaint with these boots, but I've also never ... more »

Added reply in a thread Hows your used bike market? 5/19/2020 7:09 AM

I know I sound like a vulture, but I really figured I'd be picking up a project bike for next to nothing after a month of Coronapocalypse. Hasn't been the case at all. I do think that long term this has to be good for our sport. Raced the past two weekends ... more »

Added reply in a thread Reluctantly finishing the season 5/18/2020 10:52 AM

Just a thought, Tony's team is SX only. So his interests and that of his sponsors may not be 100% aligned with the teams and riders that do both outdoors and indoors.

Added reply in a thread MX Lessons, are they worth it? 5/18/2020 10:48 AM

A trainer and/or clinics are definitely a good option, but something else to think about is maybe you can find someone who is faster to take you under their wing. Moto is a lot more fun with friends anyway. I know not everyone is like this, but I really ... more »

Added reply in a thread Loretta Lynn Super regionals 5/18/2020 10:44 AM

I did a local race here yesterday, we had 190 pre-entries and I'm sure over 250 riders once race day registration was complete. I'd say at our last "pre Covid" race we may have had 80-90 entries at the same track. I would have never predicted that this ... more »

Added reply in a thread C class Vs B class 5/16/2020 2:31 PM

The thing with C is that you have "normal" C riders, but you also have racers who are holding back a class and staying in C for one reason or another, be it Loretta's or just not wanting to move up. Because of that, I wouldn't say that you should stay ... more »

Added reply in a thread FITE Klub Bench Racing 5/13/2020 5:39 AM

I thought it was great, and well worth the money. I found myself yelling at the TV even more than a usual SX broadcast. Maybe the haters don't appreciate the historical significance. We just saw Damon-fucking-Bradshaw out there banging bars with RV. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Weirdest mechanical failure or problem 5/11/2020 6:03 AM

I had a 78 YZ 400 that I raced in vintage a few years back. I guess I screwed up when I torqued the nut on the end of the crankshaft, I was at a race, finished my moto and as I came off the track the bike just stopped in it's tracks. The nut had backed ... more »

Added reply in a thread Let’s talk WP Aer 48 Fork 5/8/2020 7:48 AM

I'm a +40 B rider and have been pretty happy with my AERs on my 17.5 FE 450. I run the air pressure in the 142-146 range depending on the track and conditions. The stock pressure is way too stiff for most riders. I'd say double check sag and experiment ... more »

Added reply in a thread What hooked you? 5/7/2020 5:24 AM

This little jump in a field where I grew up. I used a shovel to make a lip on a natural takeoff and would hit it over, and over, and over. I was probably a whopping foot off the ground in that pic, despite the angle. The next year I saw the ... more »

I like them both and think they both fill really cool and specific niches. But they are both a lap ahead of any other podcasts, that's for sure.

We have a small two track series here in SC that is starting up this weekend. And the Carolina Outlaw series round 1 is a MotoVated on the 17th- I plan to be on the line. Silver Dollar in Georgia is also getting back to racing in May. I think local racing ... more »
