Added reply in a thread Direct To Consumer Brands 6/18/2020 11:23 AM

The DTC model was born for the desire to cut out the middle man (retailer) in order to save the consumer money. This will never happen in powersports as regulations do not allow it. Motorized vehicles (whether on or off road) in many states have to be ... more »

Added reply in a thread New Shift Gear Debut Tonight 6/10/2020 12:26 PM

A bit surprised when I saw Shift post about this. Heard some rumors about Fox putting the kibosh on Shift

Added reply in a thread O’Neal, you killed it! Prodigy 6/9/2020 2:29 PM

I think it depends on how much venting you want. The Prodigy gear does breathe very well. It has laser cut perforated holes in the pants as well as panels of mesh in the jersey (arms and under arms). You can see the venting holes in the pants in snackfedbear's ... more »

Added reply in a thread Crew cab short bed vs extended cab long bed truck 5/31/2020 1:08 PM

I carry people and things inside way more than I have a need for an extra foot of bed space. I have a Tundra crew max with the 5.5’ bed. I carry one bike corner to corner with tailgate up or two bikes straight in and use straps across the back to secure ... more »

You realize you have posted 922 times to a "social disease media" as you call it?

This is a great idea, I might just do the same. I have a bunch of full sets that are still in good shape.

Just had my first child last week and I can’t wait to get her out riding on my handlebars in a few years. It’s crazy how threads like these change once your’re a dad

So how much was he paid for the Caesars Palace jump?

Added reply in a thread The sanctioning body owns it, controls it and they don’t care what Chad Reed thinks. 4/30/2020 10:47 PM

I don’t think those rules and guidelines are all that limiting. It’s their event, they produce it and the own the content.

Added reply in a thread Bobby Hewitt/Rockstar 4/29/2020 10:10 AM

So correct. I've seen several posts alluding to Pepsi pulling Rockstar out of motorsports and SX. Not happening. As mentioned, PepsiCo was not allowed to have a competing energy drink. They attempted it with their Mt Dew Amp drink with some ingredient ... more »

Added reply in a thread Where to ride pit bikes in Orange County CA? 4/27/2020 2:57 PM

I was thinking the same. Care if me and my buddies show up to battle with our XR100s? We're not far from NP... I've been riding that area since long before those white buildings were there ;-)

Started new thread Is Belichick the Aldon Baker of football? 4/22/2020 10:38 AM

Successful but it comes with a price, just like Aldon? We see the Baker Factory churn out championships but is also burns guys out fast. When I saw that Gronk came back, immediately was my first thought. https://www.yahoo.com/sports/rob-gronkowskis-nfl-return-says-it-all-the-patriots-breakup-is-a-bill-belichick-story-053343943.html

This has been an interesting thread for me to read. Lots of wrong info and assumptions though. I work in the area thats being discussed day in and day out, so let me share some opinions... - For those banging the entitlement drum - I'm looking at you ... more »

I don't get the hate. He just explained what happened in a brutally honest way! Isn't that what we all want? People are always complaining about the "hush hush" nature of this industry and how things never come out. I love Cole's transparency! I think ... more »

I didn't watch that whole video, too long. But i scrolled through the play bar and looks like he never shows a screenshot from his YT Creator Studio, which is a users dashboard. Without proof of what he's making off ads, it's all fluff. Thats just a ... more »

Added reply in a thread Remember when E start was to heavy q 4/12/2020 1:44 PM

same here. "the day I can no longer kick start a bike is the day i quit riding" I know very few people that now have e-start bikes that aren't glad they have it.

Added reply in a thread What is Cole talking about 4/11/2020 2:15 PM

IMO he’s referring to Honda. He’s dropped hints here and there on his social media for a while now. I noticed he now calls his CR250 two stroke a SF250 (Seely Factory)

You haven't seen the new bag they just launched? It's got bags within the bag just as you're describing

Added reply in a thread Deals that just didn't happened in the end 4/2/2020 6:14 PM

Funny thing about that deal was, the only thing that kept it from happening was Chad didn’t want to wear TLD gear. Starts and funds his own team instead, and basically pays for that exact same bike
