Let me introduce you to the swap out dance it's pretty simple if you just give it a chance. It's not complicated it's not too hard you don't even have to be a motocross star.

Gawd dang! Can't believe he didn't get a collar bone or anything? Hit looked brutal. Glad the kid is ok sheeesh.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

I think that paddle tire made the swap even worse.

Of coarse he bad a bro with a camera! That was vicious!

Oh my God! That's the hardest swap I think I've ever seen. So surprised he didn't break a collar bone or anything for that matter!

We used to hit 90 mph on those in desert races. Paddle tire has nothing to do with it.

Gotta skim. Guys like Danny Hamel and such would go out and run the roads next to the canal or out to the hills where there are 5 miles of those and just hold it wide on a big 500.

No one in desert races hits whoops at 90! Not even Danny Hamel or any of the other greats. It takes the top riders 3 hours plus to do a 90 mile race, so if they are going 90 across the whoops where are they taking their nap?

I once did 90mph across the whoops in a turbo sled!

This is exactly how I broke my back in 2004. WFO in 5th on a 250 2stroke to death swap in sand rollers.. Except I ended up in cactus!
It is also the reason I spend good money on suspension set up now. This is exactly where good suspension will save your ass!!

In the wash or up in the hills with the rock where they are doing 20.

The 12 in my name is from my number in District 37. If you ever raced a desert race you would understand.

You even blow a tranny at that speed? The asian trannies are a little weak for hitting whoops at that speed.

Done a lot of desert racing in my day and I agree.

A true 90mph on a dirt bike is incredibly fast, if you ever done it, you know...

At 52 I'd still be laying there wondering how much I could sell my stuff for laughing

Haha, exactly. Id be a rich man if I had a nickel for every time I came to, laying in the dirt in the fetal position, saying “screw this-my bike and all my gear are going up for sale when I get home...”

It was a tongue in cheek comment. I have done a few but, I was never a big hare and hound guy. Although, I have raced a lot of Enduros. The first thing you learn from enduros is how slow you are actually going, even in expert class. Heck, it is hard to even get a bike up to 90 on anything other than a dirt road or an open wash.

If was on some Peds or the rear wheel more he would pulled off...

90mph through the sand whoops, tell us more "back in the day" stories!

This. If u haven't reached tunnel vision, u haven't approached the Rev limiter in 5th. It's like when they go warp on star wars...everything streamers lol. Triple ur braking distance is the odd part. I swear from topped out to below 80 the brakes almost may as well be not there. Like ice haha. Gotta pass 150 on a crotch rocket to get there. That's when the mirages begin appearing everywhere, and the very not flat nature of pavement becomes visibly apparent.

when in doubt, pin it out

On yew toob there is a video of Hamel on radar at 105 in a race on a whooped out road.
Tecate 250 or something similar. Don't think it was a Fuddrucker race on this side of the border.
