Added reply in a thread Just an idea for SX format 10/5/2017 11:53 AM

Don't murder me either, but I've been thinking what if they did a sort of "bike champion" instead of "rider champion" like they do in Nascar I think. So the way we have it now, when a rider gets hurt and has to miss a round or two, they are basically ... more »

Started new thread Black Hills Suggestions? 7/26/2017 9:16 PM

Has anyone tried out any trails in the Black Hills? I'm a moto guy that just moved out to South Dakota, and since my Loretta's regional didn't go to plan, I have next weekend open and thought I'd do something a little different. Does anyone have any ... more »

Cool thanks guys!

Hey quick question, So I blew my shock the day before the AQ on my main race bike (KTM 250sx) so had to ride a family members 450. I ended up qualifying for the regional so my question is can I go back to my 250 or do I have to ride the bike I rode at ... more »

Started new thread Front end "wobble" in the air 3/25/2017 8:47 PM

Hey guys quick question, Was able to ride outside today for the first time this year and got reminded of this weird "wobble" I sometimes feel in air. I'm not exactly sure what causes it, but sometimes when I jump, especially off of higher speed rough ... more »

Added reply in a thread Did the dunge just check up? 2/20/2017 12:06 AM

Just thought I'd chime in since nobody has really mentioned it... I was at the race and Dungey got WAY sketchy on the dragonback section. He got kicked and was really close to another Bogle/Martin crash. He saved it but rode off the side of the track ... more »

Added reply in a thread Tall rider Style check 3/31/2016 10:19 PM

2Tall Racing actually makes a kit that I run for KTM and Husky now. I'm 6'7" and it has been great so far. Definitely took a bit to get used to but the more I ride it, the more it makes me think this is what normal people feel like on a bike. Here's ... more »

Yeah shoot them a email! They will be able to tell you which kit you would be best suited for, probably stage 1 I would guess.

Added reply in a thread 2Tall KTM 250sx 11/7/2015 6:06 AM

That's exactly what I was thinking as well when I was deciding on whether to get the kit or not. A higher ride height doesn't seem like a good idea, it's simple physics, right? But I haven't found a tall seat yet that feels "natural" to me, so I took ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2Tall KTM 250sx 10/27/2015 9:43 PM

Funny, I actually found that the kit helped me a ton in rutted corners. I just kept hitting them harder and harder, it was like the faster I came into the rut the better it felt, which obviously helped my corner speed like crazy. So not sure what to ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2Tall KTM 250sx 10/25/2015 8:52 PM

Yeah I put hours on mine just re learning how to ride on a bike that I can grip with my knees and stand/sit properly on! I've had the similar over steering issue, I found moving the fork height flush did the most difference, but never truly got it sorted ... more »

Yep got on the show! Had to plug 2Tall when they were talking about the 722 not fitting on any machine, but I have one in mind... Yeah I've been racing since my 50cc days, had one moto win before this year (on a 65 way back in the day), and really had ... more »

Hey Crush, Well its been a while since I've been out on the track, got a promotion at work which has eaten up most of my riding time, but yeah I did have to make some changes way back when I could still ride! I tried riding it originally with the settings ... more »

Sorry its been a while, A little update on the kit! So far I've raced 3 times since installing the kit, and have gotten out to ride a good amount, although not as much as I would like recently. Anyways, I'll kind of walk you through the progression I've ... more »

I'm going to hit up some local tracks this weekend and I'll let you know how it goes. To be honest the bars don't feel that high at all, as the rest of the bike is also 2" higher. Also, one of the main reasons I gave this kit a try is the fact that I'm ... more »

Loaded the bike up this afternoon and headed over to the family farm to try it out. Out in the horse pasture there's a grass track the weaves up and down the hills that I've probably logged about a billion laps on. Back in the day my dad used it to train

Here are some before and after shots of me on the bike. Its crazy how tall it is, in one of the pictures you can see I'm on my toes with the bike off the stand. This very well could be the first bike I've ever been able to let me legs dangle on, its

Thanks for the comments guys! If you have any questions about the kit or want specific pics of stuff just let me know! Went out this morning and got some better shots of the bike put together.
