RV is also practicing for sidecar cross according to the vids on his Instagram.

I didn't see any gray hairs on his head, so he must be mid 30's or younger...

Added reply in a thread More negative press on energy drinks 10/13/2017 8:53 AM

And booze sponsor $ as well. These guys deserve the paychecks. I don't remember an alcohol sponsor since McGrath had the Bud Light KTM.

Added reply in a thread Just a heads-up 10/12/2017 8:37 PM

Almost thought I got clicked. If I liked a bike check I got that 500 error somehow for the last 6 months.

Added reply in a thread What's your one stop shop to buy casual moto clothes? 10/11/2017 2:43 AM

Walmart. Cheap plain t shirts that don't fit right and cheap black jeans cuz they dont stain. If I can't ride fast enough to get free casual gear maybe someday the moto gear gods will feel sorry for my no class ass and fill my gear bag.

Added reply in a thread CHEAP MODS FOR 16 YZ450? 10/7/2017 5:04 PM

Just use a hack saw on the fenders like Ronnie and get some bluetonium in the tank. Don't pussyfoot around with any of that other crap.

for some reason my new Pirelli mx32s I put on tonight had wps stickers on them. bought from rocky mountain...

I wonder how fast the clear plastic kits will look beat... pretty cool until you ride the bike.

Added reply in a thread Matthes idea for “B/Mains” 9/28/2017 12:16 PM

More sand bagging for a paycheck would require promoters to shell out more money. Not gonna happen.

Added reply in a thread My Alta Redshift MX - Cato, NY Motocross... 9/26/2017 11:46 AM

I kinda thought it was a bs tree hugger marketing scheme until last years straight rhythm, magazine tests, and Ben's posts. Now it's kinda got me wanting one, but $15000 is too much up front for me.

Added reply in a thread Old school Mx toys 9/22/2017 1:12 PM

yep. Pulled a Pingree! only the 1/6 bikes seem to hold up to my 3.5 year old son and my nephew. The old forks that move really don't like the sandbox either.

Added reply in a thread Why do we want MX to be"easier"? 9/22/2017 6:00 AM

Yes. Society as whole is lazier every day. If you don't see it then you probably never ran a business as an owner or manager. My last race was 10 years ago and I had a pair of four strokes. If I was serious about racing then I would still have a pair ... more »

Added reply in a thread Why do we want MX to be"easier"? 9/21/2017 3:03 PM

Ask anyone who owns a business, and they will tell you most employees will take the path of least resistance to get payed on Friday. My point is most people don't want to do more than they have to in any situation. Also we live in the "microwave generation" ... more »

Added reply in a thread Why do clutches drag with lever pulled in? 9/20/2017 8:24 PM

Clutch on my kx500 sucks. theres a fine line of in or out on the lever. very jumpy and abrupt clutch engagement on that thing.

Added reply in a thread It is time for a moment of silence 9/20/2017 6:26 AM

That liquid leans the wrong way in the turns and causes roll overs. No telling what the cars in front were doing, or if the driver was "racing" against his bs electronic log book. May or may not have been the drivers own fault. I own a little tanker ... more »

If he would chop half of the subframe off, shorten the shock shaft, and rotate the bars into his lap maybe he would look more comfortabe or faster. I saw a guy race a two stroke like that and he won all the time!

Added reply in a thread Traveling to Erie, PA. Any moto shops/tracks recommended? 9/18/2017 9:15 PM

All of the tracks close to Erie suck and are on pretty flat layouts or are half assed quad tracks. Hillside MX is open 10am to dark everyday but has no watering system besides mother nature. closest place with a KTM/Husky shop out front. only $15 to ... more »

Added reply in a thread MX bike for taller rider 9/17/2017 11:07 AM

What he said and point your toes in. Pointing the toes in automatically brings the knees closer together and makes gripping the bike easier.

Added reply in a thread Forum QNA: 2018 Vital MX 450 Shootout 9/17/2017 11:04 AM

That's good to hear. my only 3 Honda's were an 86 cr125, 90 cr125, and 93 cr500. Then I bought my 1st new bike in 2001, an RM 250. Loved it for the turning and rode Suzuki's ever since. To me the turning made up for the crap stock clutch and any other ... more »

Added reply in a thread Anyone have any info/specs for an 07 rm250 9/16/2017 7:39 PM

I never had a Gnarly on a 250. I will say the SST on my 2001 was hard to ride for my skill level back then and just tired me out. My 2005 has a Fatty and the low rpm roll on power in 2nd gear is pretty good and it revs decent when shifting to 3rd would ... more »
