I know this is silly, but black plastic was all the rage in the 90's and I'm sure there are still some hipster wanna bes that run black plastic. Did we just witness history with the first and second victories for black front fenders? Photo

RC 2002 when they did that Scorpion bike? That was black right? And didn't KW win one with a similar Vegas bike, maybe 04? Feel like you could argue a couple PC bikes maybe too?

I don't think the PC bikes had black front fenders though. I forgot those scorpion bikes.

He never won on that bike in 2009. His last wins were on the blue Yamaha of Troy bike in 2008.

Man, who keeps up with with this shit?

Is somebody going to reveal that their goal is to win with a fender of each one of the original 64 crayon colors?

I think Kyle Lewis ran black fenders on his Honda for at least one of his 125SX wins to protest not getting Honda support BITD.....

I commend their effort to mix it up but I really don’t like the black, blue is way better imo.

I agree, the Yamaha bikes this year look off with the black.

Pro Circuit ran black front fenders and I know Pichon won a few races with it in 95 or 96.

They were chrome in 1996. Face it guys. This was a record night.

Haha I remember thinking that those things looked amazing up close in the Vegas pits. Crazy how much taste changes as we age. laughing

Are you smart enough to buy a bike that costs less, weighs less, makes more horsepower per cubic centimeter, can be rebuilt for recycled aluminum can money and is giggle inducing? It is hard to believe that the American riding public flunks this test en masse. How stupid are you?

It wouldn't surprise me if Deegan had a black fender on his MotoXXX bike when he got his 125 main win.
.....and it wouldn't surprise me if a pic of that bike pops up any minute now....

Darn it. Another record held by the GOAT. At least he isn't the only rider to win with a black front fender anymore.

Don't know if either of them won or not, but didn't Broc Glover and Mike Bell ride black YZ250s in a race in '82? I seem to remember the Yamaha tags on the tank were made of a reflective material, so every time they got hit by a camera flash, it looked like road construction.
