I win the I WAS WRONG award. The throttle body on the bike in Vegas was not the one I suspected it of being. The one I was talking about was tested two years ago and from my current knowledge is no longer being tested or was put on the back burner... ... more »

You make a solid point. I've always been curious about how the Turbines work when compared to a solid head form versus human hair... I've been skeptical of the Leatt helmet, mostly as I've barely ridden in it as the first iteration I tried fit quite...horribly... ... more »

Just my opinion but no other bike in the class feels lighter than a KTM on the track...

That's been going on for years, YouTube has their own system that looks for copyrighted material and yanks it. It's to be expected, they own the rights to the footage not the average joe with a YouTube account.

Added reply in a thread Sounds like Dirt Rider Magazine will cease publication... 12/4/2017 7:03 AM
