Added reply in a thread 2022 CRF250R 9/19/2021 8:19 AM

I rode a friend's brand new 22 yesterday. I was uber impressed (and did not expect to be). I have a 19 250SXF with 270 kit, pipe, dyno mapped, VP T4, and his new (not even broken in Honda) pulled harder in low to mid. Impressions from 15 minutes of track ... more »

Don't the Factory Edition's details get released around the start of December every year? Can't wait !!

Impressive comeback from that mega knarly Femur break this winter. Hopefully he can get this issue resolved and then get enough support to show his potential.

Added reply in a thread Cleaned out my old gear bags.. 7/5/2021 5:27 PM

1995! I had that exact gear for the 1995 season. I remember getting the catalog in Winter of 94 and everything looked so vivid.

Added reply in a thread Will Eli win again? 6/7/2021 9:03 PM

This comment by Keefer from Daytime Program: Thunder Valley has me intrigued. "Eli Tomac: I am going to be on an island here, but Eli will be better after the break. I can’t say why yet, but he WILL be better. Like podium better. "

Intrigued! So, not just a mildly refined 2019-2022 platform? The 2019 was refined, but not all that different from the 2016-2018 platform.

Listening to the Steve Matthes show today, Steve commented that Chase was pouring blood after the crash. Sounded pretty gruesome.

Added reply in a thread KYB factory kit VS Yamaha KYB difference 3/13/2021 9:11 AM

I think 10-20 years ago there was a big upgrade between production and A-Kit, but today they appear to be the same basic technology, but with coatings. I believe the high dollar A-Kit KYB forks use the same plastic ICS piston that the production forks ... more »

Added reply in a thread Fractured T8 and T9. Would you keep riding? 3/8/2021 5:44 PM

Going through all of that is bad enough, wondering/worrying about if you will ride again makes the whole experience even worse. In October, after 40 years of riding, I had my first "bad" injury. I ride both mx and woods, I was enjoying a great woods ... more »

Added reply in a thread How will Covid affect the 2021 SX Championships? 1/13/2021 2:56 PM

I was wondering this. Understanding that covid affects some people really bad, in general, young healthy people have very mild symptoms. Once you've had it you have immunity for a while (timeframes vary and are still being learned but i've read everything ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2021 Supercross Covid rules - positive test makes entire team inelgible? 1/12/2021 5:26 PM

That makes more sense. That's right, I remember them discussing contact tracing, so maybe if they can prove they were always 6 feet apart or were masked when not, then they'll be in the clear!

Started new thread 2021 Supercross Covid rules - positive test makes entire team inelgible? 1/12/2021 5:05 PM

I was listening to last night's pulp mx show this morning, and I believe they were discussing that if any member of a team tests positive, then the entire team gets quarantined. Was this the rule in Salt Lake this summer? This seems like a game changer ... more »

Added reply in a thread What is the final word on AER spring conversion kits? 6/3/2020 8:14 PM

I'll second the MX-Tech Lucky kit. Great performance, and also one of the cheaper options out there for going from air to springs.

Added reply in a thread What happened to Hot Sauce 5/13/2020 6:28 PM

In one of the threads I saw a few posts that he might have had a seizure the morning of the race. Hoping this is not accurate info, or if so, that it was very mild. I could be wrong, but i don't think he was drinking at the campfire.

Added reply in a thread 19/20 FC250 & 250SXF COVID-19 Discount Code? NORTH EAST 4/9/2020 4:25 PM

KTM must have had some killer discounts last fall - in August, i bought a leftover 19 350SXF for 7200 OTD, and then in November a friend bought a leftover 19 250SXF for 6500 OTD. I'm guessing these were KTM incentives to get the 19's off the floor.

Added reply in a thread Food for thought: Getting injured right now would be worse than normal 3/21/2020 7:36 PM

Elective surgeries in STL are being cancelled/not-scheduled. These are obviously unique times. But knowing, that even with good health insurance, not being able to get an injury repaired right now, is going to keep me off my bike until this storm blows ... more »
