That's rough. Hope he gets better soon and has a smooth recovery. I think it's wise to go to a 125 first instead of straight to a 250f.

Added reply in a thread TM Bikes - Opinions? 2/15/2018 7:19 PM

I find it quite rideable, but I don't really have enough experience on other 125s to be able to offer an informed comparison. I'm much to heavy for them, especially on the sand track I usually ride (it's more for my son than for me). I think the 18 is ... more »

The latest MXA issue (March 2018). You're bang on saying that it's weak on the bottom but a rocket on top. Just rev it until you think it's going to blow up, then rev it a little more. Great fun!

The 06 125 I have is a great bike. Fantastic quality throughout. MXA had a very positive test of the 2018 125.

I put an FMF silencer on my 250 sx-f, and am not under any illusion that it improves performance. I just like how it looks and sounds. I left the header because from what I read, the stock header is as good as it gets. Now a 2 stroke is a totally different ... more »

Seems better now.

Added reply in a thread What boots do you choose and why? 2/10/2018 11:31 AM

I'm a weekend warrior and wanted good ankle protection with a hinged ankle without breaking the bank. I picked up Forma Terrains and am quite happy with them. While I'm sure you can get better boots, I doubt that you can find better boots at that price ... more »

Added reply in a thread Real motocross...you be the judge 2/7/2018 12:59 PM

Surely nobody doubts that machinery and techniques have evolved tremendously. Knowledge of nutrition and training methods has also increased. But you can't take anything away from the riders of the 80s in terms of what they did with what they had. Those ... more »

Added reply in a thread Used Aer 48s 2/7/2018 10:49 AM

I bought a set off Ebay last fall for 1300 USD. I forget what he was initially asking - there was the option to make an offer, so I did and it was accepted (I think he was asking 1450, but it might have been 1400). You could probably get more than what ... more »

This strikes me as a sensible and plausible evaluation of the bulletproof coffee claims: https://gizmodo.com/bulletproof-coffee-debunking-the-hot-buttered-hype-1681321467

Added reply in a thread Roczen and Coffee? 2/7/2018 8:28 AM

I've never gone full keto, but I've certainly found that when I make an effort to cut back considerably on carbs (e.g. have meat and vegetables without adding bread or potato, no pasta, no sugar in coffee, avoid sodas), I'm less hungry. Also, increasing ... more »

Added reply in a thread Roczen and Coffee? 2/7/2018 7:02 AM

If someone is doing bulletproof and keto (or any other diet that sufficiently restricts calories to caloric deficit), why would they think that the bulletproof has anything special to do with the weight loss? I understand that caffeine helps boost the ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2018 CRF 250 mods to increase bottom-end power 1/30/2018 10:52 AM

That comparison to the KTM is not kind to the Honda. I never understood the complaint that the KTM lacks bottom end. There's a difference between throttle response as a product of mapping, and actual power - the KTM has quite a bit of actual low end ... more »

Added reply in a thread Emig conflict of interest 1/27/2018 6:52 PM

It is a factual statement that Wilson is on the Rock Star Edition and Reed is not. Unless anyone with any brand affiliation whatsoever is in a conflict of interest when working as an announcer, there is no problem here.

Added reply in a thread Negative much? MXA sure comes out that way with their 450 shootout 1/26/2018 6:41 AM

There's quite a few people calling MXA biased who seem not to understand what "biased" means. If you use a fair set of criteria, and apply it equally to all of the bikes, then you are not being biased (an unfair, biased criterion would be something like ... more »

Added reply in a thread Wp aer48 fork ,air pressure chart? 1/25/2018 11:05 AM

My AER forks are on a 2016 250 SX, so not really designed for the bike. Nevertheless, I'm over 200 lbs and have put a stiffer spring on the shock. With that, I've found that if I run less than 155 psi in the forks the bike feels unbalanced and doesn't ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2018 CRF 250 mods to increase bottom-end power 1/24/2018 7:24 AM

If MXA is to be believed, compared to the KTM, there's a deficit everywhere - it's just biggest below 10,000 rpm. A fast rider could conceivably give up some low end if the high rpm payoff is sufficient. But where's the payoff with this engine?

Added reply in a thread 2018 CRF 250 mods to increase bottom-end power 1/24/2018 6:29 AM

Pretty much what I was thinking.
