Well, they haven't built a bike since March 19th. Before that they were only building a handful of Live Wires each day. It'll be interesting to see what this does to them.

Those are surprisingly entertaining!

Therapy. The exertion, thrill, occasional scare and required focus are cathartic. It's like a mini vacation that's invigorating for body and reset for mind and soul.

Takes me back to folks questioning why Hannie was out on the track with the regulars when he was not racing. I get RC designed the track and is the GOAT, but the question is the same.

Ha! But maybe more clairvoyant than you intended.

Jason Anderson would be proud of that jersey.

Thanks Tony, that was great. My first "real" bike was a 1980 KDX 175. Experienced my first seize/rebuild with her. Broke my heart at the time. What a great bike, even though the bearings in that Uni-Trak were my worst nightmare. Especially that center ... more »

Added reply in a thread Mid-Size Trucks? Chevy Colorado any good? 3/2/2020 2:08 PM

Motomad724- I was speaking from my "seat of the pants" experience- rarely ever have to back up the Sub and take a second whack at parking- Colorado almost always do; body panel and window sill heights make visibility a bit of a challenge sometimes too. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Mid-Size Trucks? Chevy Colorado any good? 3/1/2020 9:01 PM

My 2018 Colorado gets around 19-20 general driving. It's got the V6. Plenty of power, though I don't tow with it. Biggest problem I've had is a long wheelbase for a mid-size truck, and large turning radius. Our suburban parks way easier. Visibility is ... more »

Added reply in a thread Counted many riders almost endo off the dragons back.. 2/26/2020 12:43 PM

It's been commonplace that if an obstacle is considered problematic or unreasonably dangerous, changes get made. Is there any evidence that anyone pointed out this "dangerous condition" early in the game Saturday, or was this just all analysis after ... more »

Added reply in a thread Hmm. How does this happen? 2/25/2020 3:14 PM

Riders are bouncing around to different gates all night, right? Wouldn't be on the same gate in qualifying and in the heat as they would in the main? So this gate had several launches up the middle, and one rider that launched from the left of center ... more »

Was thinking the same thing. The Unicorn is on display. Info on the pedigree could be close behind.... Interesting features on that mock-up. Under-mounted rear brake caliper. Linkless suspension. Right side drive. Side panel shape looks awfully familiar. ... more »

America has no gun laws? Was that some sort of weird, off-base metaphor?

Added reply in a thread 2020 Daytona 500 2/18/2020 12:03 PM

When I first saw that close-up I was thinking oil too, mostly due to the color, and if it was fuel I'd have to think the vapors would have ignited that close to an open flame. But man, that was a lot of fluid. Is there an oil reservoir in the back of ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2 stroke or 4 stroke. Dont hate me please. 2/14/2020 5:40 PM

They don't get wrung out as hard, typically don't need as high of a rebuild frequency. I had one that was vet mx'd, cross-country raced and trail ridden for 10 years on one top end. Seriously. Still was tight and had great compression. Outside of crash ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2 stroke or 4 stroke. Dont hate me please. 2/14/2020 4:08 PM

Gonna throw in my vote for an early 2000's KTM 300. Very tractable power, doesn't hit like a 250, but plenty of sing. Adding a flywheel weight not needed. Most used ones are going to be ex-vet bikes, so they may not be as thrashed as a 250 mxer. Won't ... more »

I got involved in vintage/post vintage cross-country racing a couple seasons back. It's a lot like that vid. Great low dollar fun.
