So is the idea that you go to your dealer, ask for the kit, and received a bunch of random boxes of parts that you take home to assemble, then go back to the dealer to order the missing shit (it is Suzuki after all), them modify the misaligned backets ... more »

"Manufacturers" is pretty vague. Who in particular? Even if Keith McCarty reads the forum, he is in no position to snap his fingers and adjust the trajectory of an international corporation the size of Yamaha. You would need Yoshihiro Hidaka to start ... more »

Thanks for posting, I enjoyed the setup analysis at the beginning. If money were no object, it'd be interesting to see what you could get the weight down to with a Ti shock spring.

Why? Because people have issues in the rain, which opens the door for surprises? JG will be just as susceptible to issues as anybody else. So how can you deduce that the weather will give him in particular (as opposed to anybody else) a "damn good chance ... more »

It's a shame his first race will be Seattle. I don't think it's ideal for showcasing JG's potential. I wish him well though.

I would argue that RC and JS were on a more level playing field in terms of equipment. I'm confident in saying that while Smets' bike looked trick in 01', the Yamaha was a significantly more effective weapon. MXMattii: Yes, MXdesN and ISDE are commendable ... more »

In 2001 I think Everts raced against one guy...Joel Smets. The field was definitely not deep. But he sure is smug and proud about his 10 titles. I'm definitely rooting for Tony!!!

I agree. I was fortunate enough to attend several GPs in 2001 and 2002 and really enjoyed watching Mickael. Some great pics here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/pichonimage/photos/?ref=page_internal

I wish there was some youtube footage of the goggle-incident with Everts from South Africa (circa 2004). I was unable to find any.

No no, we can't have that. We need more professionalism to attract more sponsors so that more people who don't ride or can't win but are associated with MX can make a career of it. What is that, like a couple hundred people or so? Yes, that will help ... more »

Do you even have magazine back issues that you could have looked at for these tests? Kidding!!!!! Thanks for clarifying Tony. I'll keep my mouth shut from now on.

Another great piece of content Tony. Thanks for posting. One of my memories of this bike was from some sort of mainstream TV show, I don't remember the name, it was something similar to "That's Incredible!" or something like that. They gathered a group ... more »
