I broke mine 4 years ago along with my neck, ribs, sternum and tore my pec on the other side. The ball was broken off like yours but also shattered so it was a difficult fix. Needed two surgeries approx 10 weeks apart which impeded recovery pretty bad. ... more »

I think if people knew Scotty’s struggles they would be a lot more understanding of his conclusion. I just hope he makes the right decision for himself, no judgement here.

Started new thread Baja trip on mid sized ADV bikes 3/27/2022 9:30 PM

A buddy and I are planning to do a Baja trip this fall, probably late Sept - Oct, 3 weeks. We’ll drive down from Canada and unload near the border to give us more time to ride SOTB. We figure 2 days drive each way and 19 days to ride in between. It’ll ... more »

I hope you’re right, but it just seems like craziness has taken over. Trump did a podcast recently, said nothing controversial. and it got pulled from Youtube. The bizarre levels of censorship we’re seeing in recent times seems like a runaway train.

I find him difficult to listen to, but just because of his delivery, not the message. It’s a shame that some people want people like him censored or silenced only because they don’t like what he has to say and it makes them uncomfortable. They immediately ... more »

It might be easier to default on a loan, but the way I was raised you pay your debts. Personal accountability. Some financial gurus might call it stupid, stubborn or foolish but I sleep well at night knowing I’ve always tried my best to do the right ... more »

Mark Lanegan died a month ago, another 90’s grunge legend. I was never into Screaming Trees but loved his contributions to Mad Season, which got me to check out his other projects. He lived quite the rough life, finally got clean and sober a decade ago. ... more »

Good job Michael, you are doing the right thing. BK or defaulting on debts should only be done if you have absolutely zero other ethical options. The next 12-15 months will go by fast and you will not only have a huge sense of accomplishment to be proud ... more »

Agreed, hard work and financial risks deserve reward. If someone wants to continue to strive for success after they've already achieved it I admire their drive, I just think personally I'd be content when I hit a certain goal and I'd be ready to enjoy ... more »

Added reply in a thread E-Mountain Bike = Best Cross Training Tool 3/14/2022 11:27 AM

It’s gotten me up into some epic alpine loops that I’d never have ventured to on a regular bike. Some guys do but I never saw anyone when I was up there.

I bought a YT Decoy Pro Race as soon as they came out and it’s awesome, I also owned a Tues DH bike and a Pivot Switchblade, both of which I eventually sold when I concluded that the Decoy is more fun to ride in every situation including at the DH park. ... more »

People like to pretend that the RMZ is not competitive because it’s not been keeping up with the Joneses. Anstie isn’t performing any better on the KTM than he did on the RMZ, not to single him out but it’s evident that while people point to the bike, ... more »

Same, covid mandates changed my whole outlook. I was forced to get vaxxed because my debt ratio was too high and I couldn’t afford to lose my job. It taught me that I am not a free man. I’ve rearranged my priorities and made some strategic moves so that ... more »

Enough for me would be just enough that I can live out my days with a quality lifestyle and never have to work again. I’d still work but it would be nice to know that I don’t have to. That doesn’t have to be a whole lot. I think once I’ve achieved that ... more »

I have a Tenere 700 too and I agree but they are very hard to get right now. Dealers are selling them for 14k currently. I had a KLR too, and while they’re not great at freeway speed, for a backroads commuter and swiss army knife of a bike they are bullet ... more »

For him to DNF it was likely either due to his head or upper body, it’s a valid assumption. It’s not likely that he rung his bell that bad from that low side, and quite likely that he hurt a shoulder to not be able to salvage some points. My guess is ... more »

Added reply in a thread Trump Ukraine Question I did not realize 3/11/2022 4:14 PM

Is it possible that he was trying to pre-emptively avoid what we’re dealing with now? Maybe that’s giving him too much credit but suppose he knew this would be the result of letting things play out..
