A goon is usually a top ten C class rider that needs to show all new riders on a motocross track how it's done.

My nephew blipps his throttle whilst on the straight. Very annoying

Those bikes look like they were shot at and hit, then shit at and hit again.

To me goon has always meant riding style / technique (or lack there of) more than anything else. Even a dude that halls ass with awesome technique that wears all of the above stuff...jersey not tucked, low visor (look at JMB in 1990) clashing gear...or even a crappy looking bike...still doesnt look goony to me.

Take a dude with the best gear and bike who...sits down the whole way round the track, knee out, elbows down, dragging legs out if corners, rubber knecking, looking down or crouching when in the air, looking at the front wheel, sticking legs waaaay out to the side in corners, tilting head to the side in corners when the bike is still vertical...that’s goony to me. Watch Brian Swink in the motoxxx video...on cassette video πŸ˜‰

Having said all that...there are some pros that do have a certain goonyness to their style...but i won’t go there.

Looks can be deceiving, this guy just owned everyone behind him and is hauling ass! Great pic.

You are right about the Gaerne boots, he's a legit rider.

You do realize red plates are used in off road. maybe that guy you see at the track with red plates is just an off-road Rider. Photo

And the red plates usually designate a pro rider at that.
