I love Dungey's form on the bike. Definitely reminds me of the all time greats.

I know what you mean about being instinct. I had a really fast buddy I used to ride with, but could rarely keep up with him on the track. I would always ask him "How did you get through that section (corner, obstacle, whatever) so quick?" He would always ... more »

Funny...Dungey is leading the pole even though the Vitards always criticized him for not being "fast enough" to be a rightful champion.

Added reply in a thread RC mini scrub in 1994? 11/11/2019 9:25 AM

I remember reading an article in Dirt Bike Magazine around 1989-1990 where they discussed how to "scrub". They even talked about turning the front wheel up vs down when you leave the face of the jump.

My god that is a beautiful bike.

^^^Exactly this^^^ I think he would have retired at the end of '91 or '92, so we don't see the MC/RJ showdown in '93. However, I think he would have added at least one more SX, 250 outdoor, and 500 outdoor title before he retired.

I want to see Anderson come into the season healthy and battle with Webb to the end. Those two getting into it would be epic.

Added reply in a thread Nitrogen myths 10/31/2019 8:24 AM

I worked at a retail tire store when I was in college. The sales people told customers that nitrogen in your tires made the car act as if it was lighter, and gave you better gas mileage.

That's a shame about Kame's. I used to buy everything from there back in the late 1990's. There were always crazy deals to be had there on the close out table. Hard to believe that was 20 years ago already. Time flies, and getting old sucks.

Well, it's Sunday night. Did you go riding there this weekend?

Added reply in a thread Thinking About a Tesla Model 3 10/26/2019 5:21 PM

I don't get the appeal of one pedal driving. I get the whole regen braking thing and how it applies there, but really I want the car to go when I hit the accelerator, stop when I hit the brake, and somewhat coast when I do neither. Admittedly, it took ... more »

Added reply in a thread 90s 125 reeds... Rad valve, V Force or stock?? 10/26/2019 1:09 PM

Nice looking bike. Was that bike listed locally? If so, I obviously missed it

I always go with Boyesen for all my reed needs.

You'd need 2,000 people at the $1,000 donation level just to buy the trailer.

Why would anyone do this? What benefit would the "Crowd Funder's" get out of it?

Added reply in a thread 1st Look Thumpstar MX 250/300 2t's from $6749 10/26/2019 10:23 AM

That top photo reminds me of something you would see in a Craigslist ad: a wet bike with a cheap Tusk gas cap.

Added reply in a thread 1981 yz125 value 10/26/2019 8:34 AM

They were not good bikes when they were released, and they are not sought after by collectors or post vintage racers. I wouldn't mind having a nice example because I like bikes from that era. I don't have a personal attachment to that particular year, ... more »

Added reply in a thread ADB Avenger 10/25/2019 4:10 PM

Thats a cool, and mostly unknown, piece of dirt bike history right there! And although not period correct, something about those Hoosiers just look "right" on it. I bought a 406 about 8 years ago with the intent to do something with it, but never did. ... more »

No problem. I have an unopened UFO set and verified that it is the same application for all those I quoted above. Those YZ125 and 250 models are by far my favorite ever.
