Watson's? yeah right. but it is probably Merrell's ride. He co-owns H&H with Carey after they split from Fox. he owns a giant screen printing biz too. With the amount of stuff they pump out it's not a stretch at all for that guy to own a Lambo.

that Merrell guy looks like a spitting image of Jeremy Lusk

Added reply in a thread Josh Hill next year ? 9/9/2010 10:59 AM

he had a factory yamaha ride and then a factory supported yamaha ride with L&M. As far as who's managing his career, I'm pretty sure Jimmy Button is his agent. Where exactly was the bad career management? or did i miss something

i think Fox does a good job of catering to the young, fashion-forward types with the crazy prints just as well as the riders who want the clean style and aren't looking to make a huge fashion statement. is this stuff not "retro" enough for you guys?

Added reply in a thread J-law in for X? 7/28/2010 5:16 PM

guarantee that was part of a deal for them carrying Arma in their stores. no way they paid for that, trust me. caffeine and taurine mixed with nuts? doesn't sound so appetizing to me. but hey, it could work.

Added reply in a thread Why cant FOX ............. 7/26/2010 11:53 PM

there have been a few of these threads over the last few years and people always call Fox out. Yes they make crazy, loud stuff, but they have a lot of "plain" styles and colors of gear in 2010 as well as 2011. There was a video online (twmx maybe?) about ... more »

Added reply in a thread Pala already in trouble? 7/8/2010 11:12 AM

am i the only one to notice that the Sign on San Diego story in that link was about Barona Oaks MX and NOT Pala MX? Barona Oaks is located in southern SD county, far from Pala and on a totally different Indian Reservation.

Added reply in a thread Which team has better bikes? 6/21/2010 12:33 PM

no doubt that both teams have fast bikes. But on a "team" level, FC is head and shoulders above TLD no question. Their infastructure and support is far superior. To Pings credit though, he is working with very little resources compared to FC. They have ... more »

he is based out of NC now and working for JGR. you east coast guys should look into his riding schools. not only would he help your riding, but you know he would provide some comedic one-liners! www.travisprestonmx.com
