Hey folks,

I’m excited to announce that I have taken a position here at Vital MX as an Editor-At-Large. I’ll be involved with their bike testing department, as well as a couple other features here on the site. One of those, titled @PING, will be a weekly question and answer column that will post every Friday and provide insight on the most pressing issues in our sport. The answers may, or may not, contain humor, sarcasm, and/or toxic masculinity.

Post your questions on this thread or simply drop me an email to ping@vitalmx.com

Remember, there are no stupid questions… and if there are, I’ll answer them appropriately.

See you back here every Friday.

Is anything similar to "Ask Ping" going to be on here? Sequel to "Chinese Takeout"?

Well this sounds familiar....I approve.

Are Vitards cool now? I seem to remember some comments.... Welcome to the asylum.

Hahahaha...the Vitard Asylum....the Mods here need to have a section (for all to see) where the loonies get put on lock-down for a period to cool off.

I like that slogan, "Vitards Are Cool"...Perhaps some t- shirts in future, I'll buy a couple.

I think that Vitards can't be cool in any way shape or form.

Your question is like if 40 yo parents ask their kid if they are cool. The kid most likely will roll eyes and fortnite-dance away from the room.

My third and last attempt to establish account on this website.

I am really proud to be:
- Vitard
- Filthy Euro
- Life-long Zook fan - even when i poop-talk about it a lot; cuz mofos in Hamamatsu are crazy

Does this mean Whiskey Throttle Show will remain business as usual?

Says the guy who has, “Proud to be a Vitard,” in his signature.

I didn’t coin the nickname. I’m not particularly fond of it. It doesn’t apply to all the members here, but sometimes it’s appropriate.

Ping, there’s a book out there with your name on it! Define the title anyway you want, but a lot of us are ancient and can be looney at times. Keep telling those great stories and Congrats!

Glad to have you here DP! Wait, it's Friday and you're on the payroll, how about some banter on this thread?

Let's see if you're allowed to talk about manufacturer's? What do you think about PDS for jumping, and should we rightly blame it for ending JM2's career?

Yeah, I read that too in last week's Racerhead. I guess the week off really rejuvenated him :-)
