I thought it was strange nothing was said on the broadcast, nothing was posted on Racerxonline, and nothing said in the Racerx post race write-up.

I saw Peick didn't finish the race Saturday. Does anyone know what happened?

Added reply in a thread What is the best and worst bike you've owned? 2/3/2018 3:36 PM

Worst '97 CR250R - but I loved the bike anyway and still miss it. Best '14 250SX - my current ride, totally stock except for suspension springs. Honorable mention '88 CR500R w/ '85 engine - wasn't a good race bike in 2010-2011, but I had more fun on ... more »

Added reply in a thread Barcia 2018 - the rider or the bike? 1/30/2018 2:21 PM

I think both factors are in play, and probably other things as well. But I have to say Barcia sounds a lot more mature in interviews than he ever did before, so I'm going to give the nod to the grey matter. If he keeps it up, he'll gain a fan here.

Regarding #51's successful turn-around this year, what do you think is a bigger factor: The changed bike, or the changed grey matter between Justin's ears?

Added reply in a thread KTM aluminum frame 1/12/2018 5:11 PM

You can see from my avatar I spent some time riding an aluminum framed CR500, which of course wasn't a factory bike. The big engine was a tight fit of course. Last year I changed to a KTM 250SX, and WOW!! It sure is easier to work on! If I ever got the ... more »

That would be MXA. They had pictures of KTM aluminum frames that had been tested in the article you are referencing.

Added reply in a thread Service Honda CR 500 CNC billet engine cases 11/15/2017 8:43 AM

My experience was I couldn't get them to sell me a set of CR500 engine cases. I grenaded the engine in my first aluminum frame conversion in 2013, and when I tried to buy a new set of OEM cases, I learned that they couldn't sell the left side case unless ... more »

I'll be the weird one--I think it's beautiful. Impractical, yes. But I know what it would sound and smell like and I'd like to rev the engine on main street one night around a crowd of v-twins.
