He's joking right....he's gotta be joking....is he really for real.... damn that's not even a good joke... he's a dumbass. My thought process trying to decipher what the hell he was thinking to publicly say something so absolutely dumb.

And in that recent interview with the dirt and iron guy I think, he said when he does ride for "fun", which isn't too often, he does bust out the two stroke. Nothing like hearing top guys ride a 250, especially those factory ones.

I mean its not really that hard. Same team, is same team. PC is not the same team as Factory kawi. Roczen and Jett Lawrence, same team. Plessinger and Cooper, same team. Tomac and Forkner, not same team.....

Except it wasn't lie. Try again.

Why would he lie?

Those cheers for Malcolm though. Brings a little tear to my eye. I like that guy

Reply to A more fair suggestion for the restart.. 4/16/2021 10:56 PM

Based on the rule, it was fair game. The problem is the rule that made it fair game in this instance has a glaring hole in it. Yes he rode like a beast and it was absolutely impressive for him to come back from the crash like that. With that though, ... more »

Reply to A more fair suggestion for the restart.. 4/16/2021 8:09 AM

I like McAdoo and his ride was definitely badass, but every rider on the track is and should be bummed about the circumstances surrounding his restart. He did crash, he did cause the red flag, he did start back on a level playing field after going well ... more »

Reply to Faster cornering techniques 3/25/2021 11:46 AM

Something super simple to do and can be done in about 2 minutes. Roll your bars back some. To begin with, they should never be rolled farther forward than in line with your forks. Not a ton at first, but do some increments until you feel you've actually ... more »

I mean, if a guy prefers the feel of a 2020 vs a 2021 I would say then, for him the better bike is the 2020. Professional test riders have their own opinion also, but they aren't Digger or his friend. Ol' Kroc did pretty good last year on the 2020 too. ... more »

47mm Honda front end. With how that front axle is installed, better be sure to get all the bushings too. Hope nothing is jacked from being cycled with the bind that front end is in.

Abolish cell phones and tablets for kids under 16. Have them go outside again and ride bmx and dirtbikes. Its too easy for kids to potato out in front of a screen.

Nothing super trick but a couple solid improvements. And some pictures of him at his first race a few weeks ago.

The Ricky Carmichael eject crash from Washougal was over the famous Leach's lump. RIP Bob and Linda.

Reply to Where are mid to back grid riders losing time to the top guys? 2/4/2021 5:45 PM

Its everywhere and it's just small amounts of time. 1/10th of a second in a corner slower doesn't look like like a lot. But with 10 corners on a track, well, it adds up. Add a 1/10th of second on each jump, and add .5 to 1 second in the whoops and there ... more »

Reply to Did you see the brick? 2/3/2021 9:42 PM

Not abnormal. I've seen rebar sticking out of a lip of a rhythm section at Daytona, car parts from monster jam shows in the regular stadiums, and bricks and concrete are pretty common. In Toronto 2016 a concrete block the size of a small cooler in the ... more »

Mainly budget holds back the smaller teams. Suspension and different tranny ratios will be the biggest expenses and the smaller teams for the most part cant afford that level of stuff.

You could use ACF50 and then wash it off when you get there. I use that stuff under my truck and when I wash it down after winter it looks fresh again! But really, good coating of Sc1 would be fine
