Added reply in a thread Did Jeremy Martin really go home and not racing anymore SX 6/5/2020 2:36 PM

Man that 'pointing out' rule is really working out well. Few years ago McElrath sat early so he didn't point out. Now Martin.

Added reply in a thread Let's see your 2017+ Husky - Trying to get ideas for graphics 6/4/2020 10:16 AM

This is my 2017 still with original bodywork. I had some leftover vinyl from my R1 wrap and was bored in the shop one night and started messing around with the TC. Fully wrapped the rear fender first. Decided that was a pain and didn't want to fully

I love how you literally can't offer anything resembling criticism of a rider on this board. The Plessenger thread is another example. No matter how it's worded, no matter how constructive... PITCHFORKS TO OP. Look they are all 'really cool guys' and ... more »

Drinking game: Every time Ralph says 'altitude' take a drink. Oh shit I have liver damage. I also enjoyed this exchange (paraphrasing) Ricky: "Oh man Eli just missed his rear brake and I thought he was going to go over the berm. That would have been ... more »

Yeah good grief. 100% with you on this. I live in San Diego (mountains) at 4,300' and don't think twice about the elevation, either breathing or bike performance. Cahuilla Creek, a track pros are always out here riding at, is at 4,000'. Bit overblown ... more »

Added reply in a thread Sand Surfing at Cahuilla Creek MX on my Alta Redshift MXR 5/31/2020 8:29 PM

Nice to see two Altas getting after it. If anyone has doubts about the Altas power, this video puts that to rest. A few of those jumps are pretty solid and at the end of power robbing uphills... and you two were nailing them. The long table out of the ... more »

Added reply in a thread Alta Interview 5/28/2020 12:00 PM

I'm not going to get into details but: - Alta had 300+ back orders at the time of closing. Meaning they couldn't make bikes fast enough. - H-D gets called out as the big bad in this all the time but that isn't the case - Alta bikes are awesome. I hopped ... more »

Added reply in a thread Whats the most amount of bikes you've owned at one time? 5/28/2020 10:56 AM

In my wife and I's case, different 'tools' for different jobs. We have lots of bikes but they are to allow us to enjoy different aspects of motorcycling. Though some are just cool bikes we always wanted to have in our collection or sentimental. Few updates ... more »

All the best Jimmy D! From one Masshole to another... was always fun watching and rooting for you. Remember racing at Winchester Speed Park SX nights and seeing Jimmy D out there on a minibike straight killing it.

Fun vid. Question thou: At the beginning you are riding around some heavy equipment (old mining stuff?) and past a few steel buildings (overhead drone shot). Those part of the listing? If they aren't then it's a bit confusion because assumption is everything ... more »

Man... being a kid obsessed with mx in the late 80's and early 90's... DMC bikes were the ultimate! RIP DM.

"is the experience of sound, fun, engineering simplicity and reduced weight." You're welcome, and no problem. I'm right there with you on the above ^^. Yeah I didn't even touch upon the tuning options with the power valve. The bikes come with 3 different ... more »

Hi. I wrote this essay on 2st v 4st back in February when we had another post like this going around (see below). They are common... Just sharing some various info from my POV and take from it what you will... I will only add, based on your comments

I've written a few in-depth posts (check my comment history) talking about the 2017+ generation Husqvarna's and KTM 250's. Highly recommended. Cheers.

After 15 years of sleeping in tents, on floors, in cars, and basically wherever we could fit, the wife and I finally upgraded to the big leagues. HUGE difference in quality of life at the track. Primarily it's for our trackdays/roadracing but if we head

I've kind of purposely kept my Yard Lap (track) sort of basic and more of a scrambling track with natural terrain. As I'm :30 minutes from Cahuilla Creek, a fantastic MX track, I'd rather go there for serious moto and keep the yard looking sort of natural

Really? What county are you in? I'm in San Diego County and I'm continually impressed with CalTrans upkeep of our roads. We had major winter storms pass thru last year and wash away a lot of our roadways and they were out there fixing them ASAP. I live ... more »

I always liked the one where the desert racer breaks down out in the middle of nowhere and has to eat his bike.
