Not that looks like fun. Where did you find that gem?

The '72 CB750 was the first street bike I every got a ride on. I was 10 at the time and a neighbor from a few houses down had one. I was surprised he offered but am glad he did.

No brain cells were killed in during the making of this film.

Damn! I'm not sure who is crazier - the guy twisting the throttle or the guy trying to hold on. Wonder if the "passenger" is wearing a parachute??

For a riders perspective, here is an RV quote from the post race press conference at Elsinore: http://www.racerxonline.com/2013/08/26/monday-convo-ryan-villopoto Q. And what did you think of the track conditions? Obviously everyone has their own opinion. ... more »

The layout changes do look good - but that track is smoother than a pool table. Wonder if they'll smooth the braking bumps between laps.

Wish I was there this weekend. Millville is a really good track for spectating. Went there from '94 - '99 and got to see some great racing.

I'm thinking Smitty is just a little young for this "exercise" device. But it is good to see moto going mainstream.

Added a comment about product review Tested: Oakley Airbrake 7/26/2013 7:09 AM

Gents - Thx for your input.

The Airbrake appears to be a variation on the Smith "Violator" goggle from the early 90s. The innovation with the Violator was the ease of changing the lens (drop in from the top), standard Rolloff mount, and the nose "peak". I tried those and wasn't thrilled, especially since they were 2x the price of standard Smith/Scott goggles at the time and the fit wasn't quite as good (let dirt in occasionally).

From the review, it sounds like the Airbrake has similar issues. The quick change lens may work great for the skiing community (where the Airbrake was first released) or maybe the off road crowd on long trail rides, but not so much for MX.

While I do like feature of having the lens extend below the bridge of the nose, I don't see myself buying a pair based on this review and on the current retail price of $160 that several of the large "discount" MX/off road accessory companies are asking these days. Oakley's estimation of supply and demand is off a bit. I might try them for $60, but not $160.

This could be a good thing for Mike Alessi in the long run. It gives him a chance to see that he can perform just fine come race day without dear old dad there to micromanage every last detail. And it might just give him the perspective that it really ... more »

Not sure there is an easy answer to whether Tony if Jeff needs to grow up most.

This statement by Mike Genova is good thing. It is much more in keeping with what I would expect from him based on his past actions. It would have been much better if this had been issued on Sunday morning though. Hope this whole incident doesn't cause ... more »

I'm not surprised RV was rubbing is eyes on the podium if the beam hit his goggle lens before the start. Lasers are bad news for your eyes. I was doing a customer presentation several years ago when someone in the audience attempted to shine a laser ... more »
