Gotcha. Is the translucent TPI tank any larger than what the "equivalent" black SX tank would be? Where I'm going with these questions is that KTM has done a good job making bigger tanks that don't stick up real high. As a result, for short local race

Why does the tank need to be converted?

OK obviously two wheeled alternatives are at the top of the list...trials, enduro, mountain bikes, etc. Four wheels are cool too. But just to hit you with something completely out of the box......and don't laugh....offshore sailing. You are in GBR which ... more »

Even more exciting is riding the hills at night! I was fortunate enough to have that opportunity a few times at the 24 hour events.

I appreciate the feedback. There's definitely room to improve the good calorie / bad calorie balance.

I've never been over 230 and in the past 20 years I've only once (for a brief time) been below 205. My body seems to like that 215-220 range. I'm 6'2" and not muscular. In early April I decided to start a 21 day jogging regimen. Someone told me that ... more »

Dang that sucks. Check this out...my buddy seized his 93 KX125 at Lemon Grove on the first lap of practice and they gave him a voucher to ride for free next time out. He gave it to me and I never used it... (I don't know who David is)

I'm about 6 hours away from Piru but over the years I've ridden it maybe 10 - 15 times. First time was back in the Lemon Grove days. I think the guy that ran it then was Something-Lynch, I forget the first name, I think it might've been Craig Lynch? ... more »

Didn't a helmet mounted camera have a lot to do with Michael Schumacher's skiing accident injuries? Man, us humans are slow to learn sometimes. Props to TLD for trying something different with the camera.
