Charlotte is a badly congested, extremely hot place. Consider that.

The Yamaha clutch is awesome. I hope Yamaha does not jump on the (useless, unnecessary) hydraulic clutch bandwagon

Except that the Busa is not all new. Not even close. It has new bodywork and is now Euro 5 compliant It has all the electronic crap that people want. It also has the same 1340cc engine that kawasaki rendered irrelevant in 2012 with their 1441cc ZX14 ... more »

I had the latest generation YZ250 and 125....sixteen years ago. Loved them. Do I want to live the rest of my life in 2005? no. I cannot imagine allowing my enthusiasm and interest in bikes to stagnate that long....

Ah you two stroke Yamaha guys. Bless your hearts. Like Charlie Brown running to kick the football over and over.... It ain't happening....not from Japan. Why not just forget Japan and reward the Euro companies who are actually building what you want?? ... more »

The WXC speed has picked up a great deal since it's inception. They usually overall. I am sure Sipes will win by about 5 min if he takes it seriously and does not plow into any of the 800 C riders on the track ,though

LOOL. you just nailed it. That is exactly where this took place. The wait between sessions is closer to two hours. Then there is the random half hour track maintenance ....during the middle of a practice day. I said IM DONE

Without reading the entire thread, I can say that I live in NC and have not raced motocross since my central NY days, back in the 90's to early 2000's, when upstate NY motocross was going big! and what a riot it was. I moved to NC 16 yrs ago and immediately ... more »

I have seen the Alta dirtbike in a bunch of Josh Hill's videos. Impressive. I also noted that he appeared to travel each ride spot with two of them in the truck....guessing he could not even ride long enough on one charge to do a decent video shoot ...thus ... more »

The desire to go all electric is much greater than the actual capabilities of the machines...maybe they will evolve. Maybe they won't . They are certainly nowhere near ready to replace ICE machines/vehicles at this point

Agreed. "All manufacturers are going electric in 5-15 yrs" and "internal combustion engines will be illegal in 10 years" sound like the comments of a very very young person who lacks perspective. Electric vehicles are absolutely in their infancy and ... more »

Unfortunately I think that a two party system in which one party is willing to essentially offer cash payments for votes is a system in its last stages , swirling around the drain...so to speak

Reply to ‘The umpteenth death sting to our sport’ – Stefan Everts 2/18/2021 10:19 AM

do you honestly think ICE engines will be "illegal" in ten or 15 years? You can't honestly believe that

what I do in a case like this is ride the bike constantly until the rest of the bike looks similar to your lower frame rail. You will have lots of good times, and the pain of gnarfing your bike will slowly fade ...
