Reply to Get your Herlings Mexico Predictions in 9/11/2014 9:16 AM

From the press release we already know he will race. Smart thing to do would be take what is given to him without pushing it too hard. In other words keep his rival in sight and don't push it if you don't have to. But what do I know. Hope he wraps it ... more »

I can't wait to see what happens after last seasons ending. I'll DVR it and watch it tomorrow night.

Reply to I can't believe they are paying me to teach math to high schoolers 9/9/2014 11:16 AM

Great story and I enjoyed reading it. I think it is great you went ahead and pursued your dream and made it happen. I was always terrible at math and it was always embarrassing in school. Some teachers can be real a-holes when dealing with a student ... more »

I had one of those flat glass Chevy vans not too long after I got out of high school. The guy I bought it from had put a Chevy V-8 in it with a automatic trans. It overheated every time I went to Indian Dunes in it. We started taking extra fluids with

I got started watching all the old Rifleman series. There is a channel here that has it on every day so I DVR them and catch up from time to time. Also like Bonanza and Gunsmoke I don't think there are any bad

That is nice. You know I didn't even consider that side of things. See now I've got more research to

I know what you mean. Holding the .40 felt better in my hands and I actually did better shooting it than the smaller 380. My boss told me next time we go he'll bring a .45 to try. That is kinda what I was zeroing in on but may change my mind after shooting ... more »

Don't mind you asking at all. I wanted to get a hand gun to keep next to the bed at night. Living alone now and would like to have something. But you know after going out there last week I could see myself getting a rifle just for target shooting. They ... more »

Only time I've ever shot a gun was back in 1975 and it was a .22 rifle at a friends ranch. My boss is into guns and I mentioned I wanted to get a handgun so he took me to a shooting range out by Lake Piru. Got to shoot a 380 and. .40 semi auto handguns

Reply to Excellent discussion point put forward by Matthes, throw it out there for opinions/thoughts 7/31/2014 10:20 AM

They are a pro team. They would do everything they could for a rider on their brand to win. What if something happened with KR and then RD has a problem and Canard/Honda sneaks in and takes the title. Anything can happen in these races or practice so ... more »

Love watching Eli ride. Just has great style and looks so aggressive. Seems like a great kid with good values and shows his class when he talks on the podium. Hope he continues to do well. Honda would be as dumb as their two pipe setup to lose this kid. ... more »

We don't have MAVTV so I hooked up an old PC to the big screen and stream the first motos then change to my cable box and watch the second motos on NBC Sports Network. All in HD. Streaming works great for me and I can DVR the second motos if I have things ... more »

I saw the story about this on our local ABC 7 LA news and thought what a great event. All the kids and families looked really excited and it breaks your heart to see some of the kids. Nice job to all involved. Very proud of all of you.

Sorry to hear about your Dad. I rode at "The Dunes" when I was younger for fun and from Oxnard it was just a short trip up 126. Years later I started racing there and did so till they closed it. I remember seeing your Dad there when I was younger and ... more »

I've got the game pre-ordered in Steam but so far I'm not loving the demo. I've played all the MX games going back to that Suzuki MX game on my first PC that was on 5 1/4 floppies...Anyway this just doesn't feel right. I think it feels like you are floating ... more »

I did look at Steam here but it just says it unlocks on the 28th. No pricing listed. I'll hang onto to my pre-order till it is a for sure thing on Steam. If not I'll just get the code from Amazon.

Thanks.... I've been watching Steam to see when it shows up. I'll cancel Amazon tonight and just buy it off Steam.
