Has he been hanging out with Johnny Knoxville?

I liked it! If Rocsen has to retire early due to injuries, he could get into acting I reckon. He's a funny guy!

Wow. Absolutely shocked Honda cares this much about off road now. That said a 65, 85 and 125 would have been more instrumental to the continuance of the sport.

I agree, but the off road scene is growing while moto seems to be shrinking or staying the same depending on your locale. I know of a lot of guys that are stoked for the 450L, and the 450X has been a good seller. The return on investment will be far greater on these bikes than on the 65, 85 and 125.

When companies start losing significant market shares in key markets, marketing teams become more creative with their approach to regain those once loyal customers.

The only "caring" going on right now is from those in the Honda Offroad business unit who care to keep their jobs.

Haha! I was waiting for that. Before that, it shows someone riding at Washougal and I want to say they jump the triple in the middle of the track or the table top over by the old amateur start, I can't remember for sure. That's the rider I was talking about lol

As stated I referred to the continuance of the sport not the continuance of supporting Honda. If they don't care about getting new riders into the sport of motocross fuck them. Since they don't care about the future of mx they moved on to the off road (non motocross) market. Wise business move.

Who makes more dirt-bikes for kids than Honda?
More models?
More different sizes?
(For kids, noobs or “intro-to-Off-Road” models? Aka, bikes for starting out).
Let me lay it out for Ya...believe it or not...most people start off riding a dirt bike and then evolve into MX...
CRF-F: 50, 110, 125, 125 Big Wheel, 150 & 230.
CRF-L: 250 & 450
CRF-R: 150, 250 & 450
CRF-RX: 250 & 450
CRF-X: 250 & 450
4RT: 260 & 300(RR) sold as Montesa Cotas
Of the 17 or so models listed...OVER 1/2 of them are excellent platforms for learning. I know...I’ve used about 9 of their models to teach kids/people to ride...INCLUDING a trials bike; so, there’s always that.
My point: whatever your personal bitch is about the state of this sport...it ain’t with Honda and their ability to get people out on the track or trail.

Nobody ever told me, I found out for myself. You've got to believe in foolish miracles. It's not how you play the game, it's if you win or lose. You can choose. Don't confuse. Win or lose. It's up to you!

Not talking backyard/trail riding/teaching kids. I'm talking 50cc, 65cc, 85cc, 125cc motocross racing.

Maybe in California the pee wee, 65cc, 85cc and 125cc classes are full of crf-f 50, 110, 125, etc trail bikes but that is not the case here.

The CRF150 is the only youth motocross bike they make and we all know how wildly popular it is. At $4,000 and a seat height of 33" it is not a child's 1st race bike and you know it.

You are correct. Those with kids who race the 50cc, 65cc, 85cc and 125cc classes. You know......the future of the sport of motocross. Honda does nothing for that aspect of the sport. Sorry my agenda has concern for the sport and my kids not just my own personal riding interests. I did purchase a 2017 CRF450 and over 20 new Honda CR/CRF's over the years for myself. That is not the point. They make a 2 great motocross bikes. Not disputing that one bit.
