We had a kid here that was similar. He was actually pretty good but his dad was a big round-bellied nothing as far as riding. A friend (vet pro) rode at his place once, said the kid's dad wouldn't let the kid come in for lunch until he jumped a rather ... more »

I believe so. I remember an AX race in WA in the mid-90's where one intermediate stuffed another. The dad of the stuffed threw dirt on the stuffer the next lap. Then both dads ended up on the ground beating the tar out of each other. The ironic part ... more »

I don't care how fast my kid was and/or what prospects they have-if they ghost ride the bike into a crowd (or any person) their bikes and gear would be locked up for quite some time, if not sold outright. Stuffing people on the track is one thing-sending ... more »

Don't forget dropping 10cc in the forks to lessen mid stroke harshness...

Big difference between an honest mistake and someone who thinks that because you hurt yourself on a motorcycle, you had it coming and aren't worthy of extra effort. I've met several of the latter in my various doctor experiences.

The funny part was we (dad and I) had deposits on 2 98 YZ250's. I had ridden a 97, and thought it was good enough to get away from Honda's frame debacle. A week or two before we were supposed to get them, a buddy got a 98 KX250. I took five laps on it ... more »

I may be in the minority here, but I guess I am failing to see why the new CRF is such a big deal to begin with. Yes, I get that it's all-new, but it doesn't have anything revolutionary and it actually went backwards (in a good way) with the spring forks. ... more »

Lol, I got suckered into the '97. Sold it after five rides, switched to Kawi until the '02 model. That first gen frame sucked. Bad.

While I don't disagree with you morally on THIS subject, careful-that's the exact same thinking that people use to get riding areas shut down,freedom squashed and pretty much every fun activity taken away from us. The "I disagree with it so no one needs ... more »

I was selling a CRF450 for 4500.00 with a Yoshimura pipe and a bunch of other goodies on it. Being CL, in knew someone would ask to buy the pipe or other parts off it (or offer to trade for their "project race car" ('90 civic in black primer with a coffee ... more »

Added reply in a thread JGR Going Yellow = Success? 9/29/2016 5:14 AM

I think there's another factor involved-did JGR take a bike that was capable of winning and over-think/over-engineer the modification program and settings enough that they turned it into a turd?

I remember reading an article with Jimmy Button explaining his crash and recovery in one of the mags. He mentioned some steroid that they have to use within a short amount of time that increased chances of recovery-anyone know if that's still being done? ... more »

Obviously just going off what he said, but the Dr he had to see sounds like an ass. Probably thinks all motorcycle riders are organ donors in waiting, I've run into several of those over the years.

Luongo would hold the MXoN (which should still be the MXdN...) in a livestock barn on an AX track with one table, 3 turns and a whoop section if the owner paid him the most $$$.

I went from 125's to 250's (2 stroke) at 16. I will say that the 02 Cr250 was probably my favorite bike, ever. Light, and for whatever reason I loved to power delivery (many didn't). I ditched the POS mikuni early for a Keihin and never looked back. ... more »
