I can't recall what national it was, but I remember Bubba riding the snot out of that bike that day. Then suddenly they show him pushing the bike and you can see the entire cylinder hanging off the side of the bike. I want to find it and watch it again, but don't recall what race it was. Anyone remember what I'm talking about?

Check the vault. It's probably the only race that he lost.

2002 at Southwick, his carbon motor bracket broke causing the motor to shake enough to break a water hose. Danny Smith won that moto, which was nice since his brother had passed earlier that week. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

Pretty sure Highpoint was due to a knee injury

Watching James on a 125 almost gets me rodded.

At least Mitch didn't have to take the heat for that one!

Yes, it was Southwick 2002, moto 1... Which is apparently nowhere to be found on the interwebs.. I googled it every way possible; nothing. No video, no pics, only a mention of James having the issue, and Danny Smith getting the moto win.

Positively, absolutely 110% obsessed with anything MOTO.

I was there. I remember Smith winning, but don't remember anything about Bubba.

Not much to say to Vitards.

Yep it was Southwick in 02. If I remember correctly, that could have been Reed's chance to grab a nice points lead and possibly put him in position to win it all that year, but he popped his shoulder out and also had a DNF. Southwick hasn't been kind to James. In 06, his bike blew up in mid air 30 minutes into the moto. And I believe it was 07 where those low lifes made racial signs for him to see and/or were screaming racial slurs at him most the day.

There was a mention of the carbon motor mounts on a Pulp show I just listened to the other day. I believe there was also a reference to it from TGO of the 2003 series I watched yesterday. Strange how these things come up...

What race was it that Stewart basically ran over Matt Walker? Both were on Kawasakis. I think Walker was on a 250f and Stewart was on the 125. They were a very gradual corner, almost going straight and Stewart came up behind Walker and just kind of ran into the back of him and put him on the ground. One of the stranger deals I've seen. Walker stood up with real WTF body language.
