Reply to What age to begin grooming a future pro? 9/10/2022 7:29 AM

This is no joke. Genetics is important. Not to tall, not to stocky, and fearless mated to money and desire produces possibility.

Reply to 25 Minute Motos at Pala 9/1/2022 3:27 PM

I guess all those who a screaming that it is the safe thing to do should be urging them to cancel the last race and let it end at the current points. If they don't then delay the race until late September when it should be a bit cooler. Impractical? ... more »

Reply to How Much Land For A Private Track and Trails? 8/29/2022 12:26 PM

Everyone who dislikes your track can and will complain to the local government officials. They have the authority and sometimes the inclination, to shut your track down if it is noisy and/or dusty.

Reply to Hip Replacement question 7/17/2022 11:51 AM

You are younger than most of the guys I know who had hips replaced. I would advise you to tell your doctor what you do with dirt bikes. Physical therapy before and after speeds things up for most people. I does depend on how bad your hip is to some degree. ... more »

Reply to Eli and Chase 7/16/2022 7:59 PM

I just watched the live timing today. Every time that Sexton got close to Tomac the next lap Eli was a bit faster than Chase. Then it would start again, Chase would close in to a bit over a second and then Tomac would add a half second to it. The last ... more »

Reply to looking for thin sox, who make the thinnest? 7/3/2022 8:32 AM

I wear compression socks due to a medical issue. They are terrific and really thin.

Reply to The solution to the last problem of electric dirt bikes? 6/14/2022 7:22 AM

Here is an review of the ability of the USA to generate power and the various methods of generation that are used. If you look at this also go to the uses of electric power since 1950 and the current retail uses of power. https://www.eia.gov/energyexplained/electricity/electricity-in-the-us-generation-capacity-and-sales.php ... more »

Reply to No way Dungey doesnt win a few 5/13/2022 5:36 PM

Six years is a long time and riding isn't racing. He quit for a reason and that reason might still be there in the back of his mind. I hope he does well but don't be surprised if he doesn't run all twelve events.

Reply to Suzuki is leaving MotoGP 5/2/2022 10:57 AM

They have been a strange company for quite a long time. Their sales were up last year but profit was about the same as the year before. I feel bad for the new GP team manager, the employees, and the racers. The two racers will likely find rides but I ... more »

Reply to Official - Ryan Dungey Coming Out of Retirement! 4/29/2022 6:41 PM

I have always thought that part of why RD5 retired was because of the crash at Lakewood. He lucked out on that crash, was recently married, and saw the writing on the wall. I hope he does okay on this two race attempt and above all, I hope he doesn't ... more »

Reply to Anyone tried the Boxo tool kit? 4/20/2022 3:38 PM

Ear plugs are cheap. The problem is not with the box, it is okay. You need a hands on with the tools that are in there, the quality, and whether you need them or not.

Reply to Did anyone watch Rutlege? 4/18/2022 1:38 PM

The guy is pretty strange. I cannot see why he has a job with a network. I am glad we don't have NBC coverage on the main local channel every week. \

Reply to Craig's whoop speed 4/18/2022 8:19 AM

I watched Guy Cooper blast through whoops as fast as most could ride on flat ground.

Reply to Serious accusations, Rocky KTM folding? 4/10/2022 3:56 PM

What I gathered from earlier posts is that there were no race ready bikes, no suspension, and only one bike was there. Most folks don't work for free either. Riders and staff are blameless in this mess.

Reply to Serious accusations, Rocky KTM folding? 4/8/2022 7:33 AM

This is the best post on this subject. What Butler says should be taken with a grain of salt. We don't know what is going on and there has been enough happen that there is something very likely amiss with BBMX. Hopefully it doesn't kill the team but ... more »

Reply to MavTV Plus (Outdoor Warning) 3/11/2022 8:17 PM

Thanks, I will see what it is in my area. I have Dish and internet through Century Link. If I dump Dish it will be for something that has local TV at least.

Reply to MavTV Plus (Outdoor Warning) 3/11/2022 6:48 PM

I went to MavTV's site. I live in a rural area and the speed of my internet connection is seldom more than 7 mbps and they say a minimum is 10 with 20 preferred. Guess I am stuck with live timing and Youtube highlights. Anything I can do?

Reply to Yamaha Pulls Out of DAKAR and FIM Rally Series 2/21/2022 12:42 PM

Regarding the comments on Short and where he is going to land. Andrew may have retired right after this last Dakar. A reliable source says he is probably done. He said that right after the Dakar. No announcement has been made that I have seen but he ... more »

Reply to Props to D.Blair in the booth 1/30/2022 7:36 PM

Blair was very good and the kind of announcer the general public might listen to. He and RC seem to mesh very well and it was a pleasure to listen to the two of them.

Turn the clock back about 55 years.
