Reply to Anyone running Bridgestones? 6/22/2021 9:55 PM

I run X20's in the winter time here in SoCal. They work really well when its cooler out because the tracks hold water well. A lot of confidence in the slick stuff. They also work really well in the real soft stuff at cahuilla and pala on a dry day. I ... more »

Darn. RIP, Rocky. My condolences to the Aiello family. All good people. More bad news from Cahuilla Creek. Been happening often lately, it seems.

Im surprised $500 and even $1000 dirtbikes exist in this insane used market.

I can't quite comment on that as my Altas don't have a left hand rear brake. I was just mentioning that if a rider thinks he needs a clutch to help wheeliing or to modulate power, an option on the Alta is a left hand rear brake. Its just putting a bandaid ... more »

Why add the complexity of a clutch when its not necessary? Left hand rear brake is a way better solution. If you need a clutch to tame a wheelie, feather the rear brake hand lever like you would a clutch lever. Added benefit is you can stick your right ... more »

wtf are you talking about? Electric bikes still have a throttle. Its not a light switch (all or nothing). Power is actually way easier to modulate on my Alta than on a gas bike in my experience. Your right wrist is literally connected to the rear tire, ... more »

Pick a color. You'll be happy either way.

Other than a left hand rear brake lever, i'd suggest better riding technique so you don't whiskey throttle. I've never had a whiskey throttle situation on my Altas.

What spring rate is it? And whats it valved for?

Looks like all they did was change the plastics of the last E-Rex that everyone barfed at? Way to go Honda. Yet another reminder of how far ahead of the times Alta Motors was and how much better Alta Redshifts are STILL compared to any other electric ... more »

Reply to Drone footage of Nationals?!? 6/8/2021 5:17 PM

Drone footage of motocross is pretty rad, but you need to have a good drone pilot. I tried my stint in shooting moto with a drone, but with a DJI Mavic 2 Pro that wasn't made to chase after dirtbikes going 50+mph. Its a cinematic drone that has a lot

Was going to race the Alta, but i had a decent crash last weekend at cahuilla and i'm still recovering.

Reply to Durable motocross pants 5/19/2021 2:05 PM

You must ride with your knees pointed outward. In my experience, the TLD GP pants wear quickly. I've gone through 4 sets of GP pants in 2 years, all have worn a hole straight through the inner knee area where I grip the bike. The TLD SE and SE Pro lines ... more »

Looking at the angle of the silencer/muffler, looks to be a 2 stroke. 4 stroke muffler doesnt look like that. And also it appears to have a cable clutch due to what appears to be a clutch cable tensioner on the left side.
