Reply to mx vs atv all out 7/20/2019 9:47 AM

Thanks for the tips guys. I will keep working at it. I am probably to aggressive in the corners and might have to choose my lines more carefully. I have noticed the more I play the more natural it feels. I have the game on my PC and XB1X and it feels ... more »

I’ll have to try your setup out. I still struggle with this game. I have played all the MX vs ATV series but just never could get along with this one. I still play MES2 and MXGP Pro. I started playing All Out again a few nights ago with one of the earlier ... more »

When I was working I usually caught Racerhead every Friday afternoon before leaving work. Now that I’m retired I still read it every Friday night. I also really look forward to reading “Observations” every Wednesday during the season.

So let me ask because I honestly do not know. Say the average guy buys a new leftover like the one I mentioned above. Not planning on racing just normal riding on say vet tracks or regular Offroad riding. How much would he really need to change on that ... more »

Back in the day I had many Suzuki models. Never had a 4 stroke but if I could still ride I would not hesitate to buy one. I go and still look at bikes on Cycle Trader. Simi Valley Cycles has a 2019 RMZ 450 advertised for $5999 after rebates. Not sure ... more »

I just didn’t think he would go to the Clippers. It surprised me. I read somewhere today that two things were accomplished by Leonard going to the Clippers. One was Leonard got to go where he wanted and two it kept the Lakers from getting any other big ... more »

Just to play devils advocate... How many years does LeBron have left in him? 2 maybe? Kawhi is going to have to share the stage with someone to be successful if he wants multiple titles. Sure would take some of the load off him playing with LeBron and ... more »

I’ve got a feeling Kawhi goes to the Lakers. Lakers have not used their money they have left for any other big free agent so are they holding that back for somebody special? Me thinks so. 😄 the longer it drags out the more likely it seems. Kawhi has ... more »

Back when I was racing I would wear Oakley or Scott over the glasses goggles. I would go to a local place that would sell like two pairs of glasses for $99 and get one pair just for riding. I would leave out the bifocals on that pair. I would take my ... more »

Forget the truck and boat I love the location of the house. No neighbors right out your side windows.😄

It seems to me her questions to tend to drag out some. I thought his reaction was hilarious.

Reply to Bring back little trucks!!! 6/5/2019 9:00 AM

No had to kick the back sideways to close the tailgate. I could put the bike straight in and then hook a tie down onto he tailgate and pull it up against the back wheel. I pulled a three rail trailer with it if I had more than one bike to haul.

Reply to Bring back little trucks!!! 6/4/2019 11:27 PM

I had a 79 Toyota SR5 long bed that was awesome for hauling bikes. Loved that little truck but when I wanted comfort and hauling you couldn’t beat the El Camino. Had my 85 El Camino till 2005 when I sold it and got a 2005 Tundra. Still miss that El Camino

Exactly. MM25 is still a top rider. He came into SX in 2019 hurt and still made a run for the championship. I think it is a very good move by KTM. Who knows what will happen next year come A1. Anderson's title defense in 2019 didn’t go well so you never ... more »

It didn’t look like AC gained an advantage to me.

Reply to Brand New bike that has problems immediately 5/30/2019 4:30 PM

Dealer has offered to make it right so unless you can learn to fix your bike yourself bite the bullet and make the trip. Years ago I bought a brand new Maico 450. First ride and the bike quit shifting. Called the dealer the next day and they told me ... more »

Reply to Financing a new bike 5/11/2019 11:46 AM

Old guy here that financed bikes when I was younger. Was always careful and did not jump into foolish deals but usually got what I wanted. I worked hard and wanted to enjoy things. Enjoyed the hell out of riding and racing all those bikes. If I had not ... more »

Reply to Is Musquin gonna move? 5/11/2019 8:38 AM

Exactly. You are only the #2 guy if you don’t win. Cooper came in as the #2 guy and became the #1 guy by winning in Supercross. If MM25 stays where he is on a bike and program he is comfortable on he can be the #1 guy by winning. Doing that increases ... more »

I've found them all but one. It is a quest now....

Reply to Who’ll Pick Tickle? 5/10/2019 9:50 AM

I think he will have to do like Deano and prove himself with some good finishes. With what seems to happen every Supercross season his phone will be ringing soon.
