I'm going to post one time, and one time only on this subject. I'm a white man. My father was a police officer for 30 years...well respected by his entire department as a man of discipline, empathy and who never wavered from his North Star about honor ... more »

Interesting you say that your 150 has vibration in the pegs and bars? I don't feel that at all on mine. Have you gone over every bolt to make sure nothing is loose?

Added reply in a thread 2019 KTM 150sx questions 5/21/2020 10:26 PM

The 150 has more torque, and low end grunt. However, it doesn't rev as far or long as a 125. The 150 is a rocket ship if you keep it in the meat of the power, and by meat I mean a very thin slice of within gears. If you wait to long or shift a second ... more »

Added reply in a thread How long should amateurs stay on 125s? 5/21/2020 7:17 PM

Like most of the posts above, KEEP the 125 and learn to ride it so fast and hard until the wheels fall off. If you can rip a 125 around balls-out, you'll jump on a 250f and feel like a super hero. But being a super-hero on a 125 sure sounds and feels ... more »

The Drop Frame Pro has MIPS.

I picked up the Fox Drop Frame recently and really like it. More coverage than the SpeedFrame. I took a good digger onto the side of my head few weeks back and was super happy I had the protection over my ears. Think my ear would of ripped off if I didn't

Myself, working in the creative industry feel fortunate that I left the 'advertising industry' over 15 years ago (there's a difference). But from working in the advertising world before I became completely disgusted by it, I can assure everyone that ... more »

Yeah, the arthritis is REAL. Like I noted in post above, 17 years post shattering (I'm 39 now) the arthritis has kicked in and sucks. My wrist actually feels thicker and more "firm" if you will than my non-broken side when I squeeze it from top to bottom. ... more »

"Also point toe in to avoid injury"... THIS is a critical part if you have your leg out. Toes should be pointing towards your forks or fender and leg as high up locked into the shroud as possible. By pointing your toe in, it actually allows more of the ... more »

Shattered my scaphoid 17 years ago. Couldn't even pin the sucker together it was so grenaded. Luckily it 'healed' but it took 6 months or so and the bone looks like a deformed golf ball now. Still hurts to this day and lost a good deal of flexibility ... more »

I'm confused... The image posted for GasGas...where is the rear linkage? On the KTM...where is the rear spring?

Wow. These are incredible. I read WWII history religiously and have always been fascinated by it. My grandfather, John MacGillivray (whom my son is named after) was a purple-heart decorated Marine who fought in the Pacific theater as a radioman. He fought ... more »

When you go to Home Depot or Walmart, there are clear rules and guidelines allowing you to stay at a distance from other shoppers. When you're getting your hair cut, you have someone literally breathing over your shoulder, dude. Get it?

Great, science-driven read on Covid. It's deep, but fascinating. Well worth the time. Here:

I run an FMF pipe and 2.1 silencer on my 19 150. I like it a lot. Found that the FMF pipe added a (slightly) broader power all around than the stock pipe. I threw my Mikuni away and got a HV Lectron w/ V4 reed block. I'll never take it off. That gave

University of Texas at Austin just released a study which coincides with what the Surgeon General spoke about on Sunday...the rest of the U.S. is about to get dealt a shitty blow in the next few weeks. This virus has already arrived at our doorsteps.

I'm amazed that this virus has jumped to an animal like a tiger. But also astonished that a tiger got a test before my wife did whose been symptomatic going on something like 9 days now. I love animals, a lot. But I'm hoping that testing an animal isn't ... more »
