I admire his willingness to go race but you are s former champ and badass and this all seems beneath you. If you won’t get hired for factory ride then might be time to hang it up. He should know you can’t compete without top equipment and a team behind you. It’s almost impossible at this level.

All that being said I know he hasn’t had much time on the bike and he has nothing more to prove and I hope he proves me wrong because I’ll be rooting for him. Just hate he doesn’t have a ride.

He’s gonna stick it out for the year hoping Dungey comes outta retirement so he can try to roadblock him while getting lapped a couple more times.

You do realize he’s doing it for the love of the sport and to be out there racing the best right? It’s what he loves to do. He’s not chasing a championship. I’d say he looks at it like if he does win, cool, if not, that’s cool too

?? Just let him do his thing man. He doesnt have high goals anyway.

Bad post. Been on the bike for a week and still scored points.

He’s doing the opposite of what everyone is giving Stew shit for.

I don’t think he did too much worse than anyone else would have if they had been sitting on the couch the last 3 months... just saying. But I’m a Reed fan so you can take that with a grain of salt.

Don’t remember what year it was but JS7 was still on a Kawi & he got hurt mid season and couldn’t train. Just showed up on the weekends and raced. And he couldn’t hold a candle to the top three guys back then. Which I think were Reed, Carmichael & Kdub...

All to say... remember the Dude hasn’t been training at all for this. With that in mind, I was actually impressed with what he did. I expected him to have to pull off after a few laps.

He's trying to race himself into shape .He says he wants to be the oldest guy to win a SX. Improbable yes, impossible ?like you said almost but no.P.S. anyone on here would consider 15th at A1 to be a pretty badass ride.

|

He ain't quitting til he finds them damn tablecloths!

|

1/7/2018 8:48 AM

Isn't he still in the running for "most starts"?

|

1/7/2018 8:51 AM

maybe you should tell him this ... perhaps he is clueless and still thinks he can have fun and still possibly make fans happy and maybe after healing up more and getting the bike dialed in ? .. he could put some decent results in. But darn your probably right, he should take that solid chunk of advice bro ?

Very good point, but this is Vital where riders get shit on no matter what they do. Sad, really.

Ok I actually feel bad about my post now because I know he’s doing it for the love of the sport and that he is very well aware of his limitations. So go reed.

|

Being badass, that's whats he is doing.
Two more weeks from now and he can start walking with his leg, said his doctor originally.

|

He came off an ankle surgery 2 weeks early with basically no off season preperation. Give him a break. Nothing wrong with him

What the hell is Reed doing you say? Looks to me like he is riding around with an anchor strapped to his bike, and all you little nut huggers cannot type excuses fast enough.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? angry

grow up man, he has just finished a 10 week layoff due to surgery blink

He is old compared to the field at least, he has had all the factory rides he desired and now there are new kids that deserve them more - of course he won't get a badass ride anymore, that train sailed last year and he was lucky to get those 2 years with factory Yamaha. Him riding his own thing should be commended and NOT SNIFFED AT

FAN UP FFS

Top ten d-bag on Vital all day.

Making mains and scoring points straight out of injury, i see him improve over the season. What his potential is at his age now i dunno, i think if everything alligns later on we can see him get top 5 or podium perhaps.

Go read the latest "Ask Ping" on Racer X.
He hit the nail on the head when he mentioned this place. Especially today.

I knew that losers like you were jerking off whole week to see him fail.

Too bad he had that heroic ride last night, so you look like a douche :D

1/7/2018 9:26 AM

He finished 15th, should everyone that finished behind him give up too?

|

If I could ride dirtbikes at that level and have a stadium full of people cheer for me, I'd do it until the very last possible second.

“Milking it” ?
The guy is paying his own way and buying not even the newest motorcycles, I’d say he is racing because he loves the feeling of racing?
