I'm still a bit confused about this reprocessing. I mean, I understand the concept but in a more tangible sense, how does one undergo this process? Hank_Thrill, what exactly is it that you meant when you said "once we got to exploring that emotion". ... more »

I found this interview disturbing. Like watching some science fiction caricatures. Is this where masculinity has veered off to in the 21st century? Where have the Mikolas, Bradshaws and Hannah's gone? Herlings looks like a Sephora employee.

When did Weege do that? Was that a previous Pulp show or was that one of the other podcasts?

Can anyone explain to me where that silly pulpmx "drop" comes from...it's supposedly Deegan (someone pretending to be Deegan) talking about Ryder D. Matthes used the drop a lot on the Nicolletti show few weeks back. Anybody know what I'm talking about? ... more »

Added reply in a thread RC Has become really good 1/20/2021 9:36 AM

My opinion: RC can't make up his mind whether he is a color guy or a play by play guy. Sometimes he goes into play by play mode which is Leigh's job. So then Leigh has little to say. It sort of almost makes the case for the Paul Malin MXGP one-man solution, ... more »

Can't say I was influenced to buy, but I think it was Swapmoto's apparent product placing of O'Neal that made me (re)take notice of it in recent times. Anyway I'm old(ish). My first pair of dirt bike boots were O'Neal Trail Lite back in the late 80s. ... more »

An empty sprinter has an MSRP of about $37,000 and that's the shorter wheelbase version. Once you outfit the van, you are looking at a number approaching six fingers. Five sprinter vans..haha! Funny.

But seriously, can someone please explain what we are so worried about? In 1984, when team honda rolled up with their custom one-off factory bikes, and their riders spent the week training at Hondaland, and some privateer with a local dealership sponsor rolled up with his mostly stock 1984 RM250...did that disparity kill the sport? I feel like in our quest to be professional/legitimate/marketable/televised, we've turned into pussies. I always hear about how 450s have closed the gap between privateers and factory supported riders. Honda and KTM even offer factory edition models. The sport survived when we were unprofessional, untelevised, and underfunded. We are in a far better place. At least it seems that way to this layman.
Flame away....

Don't you think the electric revolution has the opportunity to lower costs eventually? The tech will become more affordable. Maybe even a sealed engine and spec batteries? Less wear parts, less time rebuilding engines, etc. Teams can focus on suspension settings and the power curve will be adjusted with a laptop. Just a thought...

Added reply in a thread Will there be a Alta e Mx bike Replacement? 11/18/2020 7:42 AM

I never suggested they would be reviving Alta. I think it's pretty obvious they will not be doing that. But corporations don't typically spend large sums of money to study something and then do absolutely nothing with the knowledge they gain.
