I have to weigh in on the Lectron. Not needed unless riding with major elevation changes, they just don't add any performance. If your bike runs better with a Lectron, the carb wasn't set up correctly. Lectrons are great for elevation changes (starting ... more »

MX421 in Yadkinville NC just switched ownership to Weston and Stewart's old mechanic!

I spoke to the the guy who owned the track at an area qualifier we attended. He was very candid with me and said he loved practice days over race days. (He had some not so nice words about Mxpsorts, the area qualifier etc, but that is for another time) ... more »

DV was 100%.right. SNL had issues with people posting skits on youtube and was militant about having them removed. Someone at the network realized that they could monetize this content. NBC created an SNL channel and they post damn near all the sketches ... more »

Added reply in a thread Glide Plates, are they a legit Safety device? 2/17/2021 6:24 AM

Whoa, tough crowd this week. Fan of carbon, I ride a carbon mountain and road bike, Like a dumb ass, I leaned my road bike up against a stair rail one time and it fell over, hit the stair and cracked the top tube. All I was trying to say is carbon fiber ... more »

Added reply in a thread Glide Plates, are they a legit Safety device? 2/16/2021 4:13 PM

I did a very poor job of making my point. The superior qualities of carbon fiber with regards to tensile strength and stiffness are limited though by some brittleness especially in particular situations. For example, when connected to a frame, the brittleness ... more »

Try Kevlar with carbon perhaps, but not carbon by itself.

Added reply in a thread Glide Plates, are they a legit Safety device? 2/16/2021 10:28 AM

Carbon fiber has tremendous tensile strength and very little impact strength. Casing a jump with a carbon skid plate would just shatter the skid plate.

Standing in the attack position until you are past the last breaking bump. (attack position = gripping bike with knees, toes pointed in, on the balls of your feet, elbows up, butt back) Get off the rear brake as soon as you are past the last braking ... more »

I bought a '21 KTM 125 in September. He had gotten 3 in and sold all. He told me that was all he was getting for year! In order for him to get more, he has to wheel and deal other KTM bikes from his stock to other dealers in order to get the sizes that ... more »

Lots of good advice on jetting here. These bikes are amazing when you get the jetting spot on. Not a fan of Lectron's. They have their place when riding where there is significant altitude change (like riding in the mountains and moving up elevations) ... more »

Added reply in a thread How many of you ride with plates and screws? 12/23/2020 10:23 AM

14 screws and plate in my ankle. Non-moto though. Stretched a single into a double playing softball. Everyone said "Oh did you do that riding your dirt bike?" I race go karts and moto with them without issues. I really only notice the hardware when there ... more »

I can't find it, but for me, it is a picture of a young boy carrying a trophy that is taller than him walking along side his dad. It represents motocross for me. It sums up the best memories with my son. Racing since he was 5, he is 18 now and a senior ... more »

Added reply in a thread Planning a trip down south to ride, from New York. How much did you guys spend for a week+ down there? 12/2/2020 9:57 AM

Double check, but pretty sure Clubmx practice track is only open on weekends. JWTF and West Craven in North Carolina are both open 7 days a week and are only about 45 minutes apart.

The powers that be also have to respect the manufactures that currently participate. Listen to Mitch Payton on WTS. He explains this quite clearly. He also has a pretty darn good idea about increasing purses as well, but that is another thread.

You are 100% correct. My kid will never be pro anything, however, the NBA, NFL, PGA, MSL and the AMA do not make their requisite sports un-accessible in order to make their sports a spectator event. If anything, they hope you get involved in a sport ... more »

This is quite possibly the dumbest theory I have ever read...By your logic, it would be impossible for my kid to sign up and play football, because the NFL wants to keep it a spectator sport and they don't want it "to accessible"

I just cut a 2x4 the length needed based on the bike make and model. I sand it up and make it look nice. I ID'd it with a Sharpie. I never ever thought someone would pay for that.....D'oh! Cool little product, wish I would have thought of it.
