Added reply in a thread How many of you ride with plates and screws? 12/7/2017 8:23 AM

I have a plate and screws in my right forearm. Has been there for years, but I'm looking at having it removed as once in a while it irritates the surrounding soft tissue and makes my arm swell and hurt like a SOB. The Dr. did mention that if I were to ... more »

Added reply in a thread Motocross Bike Shootouts and Their effect on Sales 11/28/2017 10:44 AM

Simply going out and buying a bike because it won a shootout would be silly (does anyone do this?). But if you have some sense of what you are looking for in a bike, reading the shootouts can be very informative. For example, the pre 2017 CRF450 finished ... more »

I'd think that would make it equal to the KTM, not better.

Very curious result. The Husky won, which in itself isn't odd, but what does seem odd is the following comparison to the KTM: "In the past, the Husqvarna has always rated behind its orange brother, but in this year's comparison, the FC 250 had a snappier ... more »

Added reply in a thread Dealership pet peeves... 10/28/2017 10:34 AM

Wow, there's a lot to complain about - from both the customer and the dealer side. The small local dealer I deal with is great. Another dealership was selling a demo bike as practically new, with "maybe 4 hours on it". The problem with that is that this ... more »

Who knew that health care is so complicated?

Added reply in a thread Self Insured Prices - No More Motocross Tracks!!.. 10/19/2017 6:36 PM

To a Canadian like myself, this seems like a bizarre conversation. With our single payer system, you'd think that our taxes would be absurd, but I don't think they're much worse than yours (it's hard to generalize as taxes vary widely depending on jurisdiction) ... more »

I enjoyed watching the minis. Excellent racing there!

Added reply in a thread New member - new 17 KTM 250SX-F 10/10/2017 4:19 PM

Mine's a 16. Love the bike! I do sort of wish it had the air forks, but I put stiffer springs front and back and fiddled with the clickers until I got it to feel pretty good. I'm 225 and I can still pull holeshots with this bike.

Added reply in a thread ‘17 Ktm 350 vs 300? 10/5/2017 8:11 PM

I have both a 250 sxf and a 250 sx (both 2016s) and when I rode a 350 sxf I thought it felt very much like my 250 sxf - light and easy to ride - but with quite a lot harder pull. The 450 sxf I rode felt like much more of a handful - much heavier feeling, ... more »

I take it that he was kidding. Or it's funny how Honda started offering said contingency cash when they improved their bike.

Added reply in a thread Dirt Rider 450 shootout 10/4/2017 6:54 PM

Does it really? The KTM doesn't and it's pretty much the same.

Started new thread Dirt Rider 450 shootout 10/4/2017 11:50 AM

http://www.dirtrider.com/2018-450-mx-shootout Just posted today. What stood out to me is that the Husky finished last. I own KTMs and have never ridden a Husky. Are they really that different that they should finish so far apart in a shootout? I recall ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2018 crf450 9/7/2017 8:15 PM

I have a 16 250 sxf and I've ridden both the 17 Honda and KTM 450s (not back to back), each right after getting off of my 250. Going from my 250 to the Honda 450, I was surprised by how light the Honda felt. Going from my 250 to the KTM 450, I thought ... more »

Added reply in a thread Which beginner mx bike. 8/2/2017 1:07 PM

You'll probably be able to ride a 250 2 stroke, but you will also probably be tentative and uneasy about it, at least for a while (I say this from experience). Flywheel weights and pipes help but not much. If you get a 125 or 150 2 stroke, you'll be ... more »
