Added reply in a thread 500 for mx 6/17/2014 9:58 AM

I ride a CR500 engine in an '05CRF250R chassis and race in the vet classes usually in the back half of the pack--might do better if I could get in more than 2 events per year. The bike is not the killer some people think. It does out pull everything ... more »

Added reply in a thread Post your Holeshot Pics 6/12/2014 2:51 PM

My first race ever at 47 years old. Looks like I'm holeshotting a pack of 450's on my old '97 CR250R, but I couldn't see they had been called back when they discovered a pw50 still on the track from the previous moto. Oneal Bottoms MX Park, ... more »
Added reply in a thread So where did you ride this past weekend? 5/5/2014 12:49 PM

Heavy Metal Raceway at Vilonia AR, 3 days after an F4 tornado destroyed 328 homes in the town. We had to drive through the town to get to the track and saw the recovery efforts---total devastation. Parking lots look like cars had been rolled in a giant

I'd like to find the builder who "balanced and blueprinted" the head and cylinder so he could give me a quote on doing my CR500. Afraid my cylinder might be out of balance...

I'd suggest drag boat racing is the most dangerous motorsport in the world. Most participating drivers think it is.

He was noticeably limping at St. Louis before the first timed practice. He's definitely got some kind of issue.

Added reply in a thread What would RV do if RD passed him? 4/2/2014 3:30 PM

I was at St Louis, and the folks who say the angry leprechaun didn't fight back are full of it. He tried to stay with Bubba and couldn't, then slowed down a little on the last 2 or 3 laps when that became clear. It was obvious from my perspective that ... more »

Our family of 4 attended the St Louis supercross this year for the first time. Thought someone might appreciate the perspectives of a first timer. 1. Was it worth it? Yes! We had the worst seats in the house behind the starting gates, but it still beat ... more »

Barcia looks like he gets his MX strategy from playing the old MX vs ATV Unleashed video game.

Added reply in a thread I feel bad for Yamaha. 1/5/2014 10:58 AM

I appreciate Yamaha for trying something radical, and it may end up being the future of mx bikes. But I agree that the ONLY reason I won't have one is because of how stupid the backward engine looks. It's all in the eye of the beholder though...

I'm building a new CR500 engine for my '05 conversion and have toyed with the idea of leaving 5th gear out. I've raced the bike with 15/49 gearing and could get away with leaving 4th gear out also with those cogs. I haven't ridden anywhere except on ... more »

I rode dirt bikes from the time I was 5 until I graduated high school, and always wanted to race. But my parents weren't cool enough to buy me the '76 CR125 I wanted, and talked me into spending my own money on a TL125 instead. But they wouldn't even
