No way. I’m also curious if Kenny risks it, given how serious he takes his immune system / health.

Post Doctoral Neuroscientist. I make 60k a year plus great benefits 3 years post PhD, during which I made 32k a year. In a year or two I’ll be a professor and run my own lab and start at around 100k. Depending on how I perform as a scientist I can top ... more »

No one who is paid to understand pandemics agrees with you.

Al Posey in NorCal “retired” but is still doing two stroke stuff. He’s an awesome guy. Have Varner send your motor there.

For sure, I love going from a 450 to a 250, because it feels so light and agile. You just have to ride it harder. Going from the 250 to a 450 isn’t as fun, unless you’re at somewhere like Glen Helen.

Well, a 250 will never have the torque of a 450, but the Yamaha comes the closest. It’s got the most low end grunt. Most turns on an MX track I can get away with third gear.

Look, so long as local hospitals are not overwhelmed, tracks that have no contact sign in and social distancing in the parking lot should be open.

The Yamaha 250F motor is incredible, easy to tune withe the app, and you can't go wrong with KYB stuff. Take the extra money from getting the 250F and get a Twin Air power flow kit. I am 165 pound Vet rider (who used to race the B class) and there is ... more »

No, but I assume the major difference, besides CCs, will be KYB versus WP and aluminum versus steel frame. Those bikes will handle and feel very different.

Thanks! Wow, I guess water just seeps in more when the staples are too long? What staples do you use?

Epidemiologists and public health experts caution that we are likely underestimating deaths caused by covid-19. Many people die at home or die without ever being tested because it doesn't change the course of treatment.

Correct, but Feynman had a PhD in physics and was a world-renowned expert in physics and mathematics.

I have heard this argument about SX versus MX: that the MX tracks need the spectator money to make it worth it because they don't have TV money. However, doesn't that assume that the promotor is doing just that: spending money promoting and bringing ... more »

You can threaten to file a police report for the stolen parts and work with your bank to deem the wire fraudulent unless he refunds you and send your motor back. Good luck. Life is about not making the same mistake twice man, so don't beat yourself up ... more »
