Added reply in a thread 2020 450 Shootouts 8/16/2019 8:05 AM

Real world cost and MSRP are two different things. Anyone who has shopped for a new bike lately knows that MSRP is a starting point. Suzuki's routinely sell for much less than some of the other 450s.

You're right, my bad. Apologies. I think it was the money comment. Always been a pet peeve when people criticize how others spend their dough. Regarding the data...engine mounts seem to be the new "it" mod in the last few years, especially on race teams. ... more »

Tons of people also gladly spend that much money on graphics kits that (gasp!) have no performance increase. Move along, tight wad

Poor amateur guy holding on to his bike for dear life : "Don't knock me over" World class enduro rider: 4 seconds later, knocks him over

Added reply in a thread How many factory teams use mooses? 8/13/2019 1:47 PM

you've clearly never ridden with a mousse tube then. I'm FAR from being a pro's speed, but I recently went to Nitro Mousse tubes front and rear and it is a noticeably different feel. Not bad, just different. I ride 80% off road but I can see MX guys ... more »

Added reply in a thread Broke the piggy bank open today 8/9/2019 11:00 AM

awesome! I can't stress taking out the reeds in the airbox enough! They are glued in with silicone, a simple blade to cut the silicone and some needle nose pliers to pry them out is all it takes. I guess it was a cheap and easy mod for KTM to make in ... more »

Great bike! I love my ‘18 Now if you really want to experience that bike at it’s full potential: - remove the reed cage from the airbox - go with either a new ECU or an in-line fuel tuner - address the plugged up exhaust with either new slip-on pipe ... more »

Added reply in a thread Stabbing spree in SoCal...more people killed with knife than assault rifle in Gilroy 8/8/2019 2:17 PM

one guy went off over a 2 hour timespan, driving around and attacking unsuspecting victims. the other was engaged with by officers within a minute and killed.

Added reply in a thread Pulp Washougal Wrap up 7/29/2019 2:25 PM

The rational person and businessman in me understands why teams and riders are not all that excited about this race. It doesn't take a genius to see that. But the super fan in me is certainly bummed at this new status-quo. I attended Red Bud MXoN last ... more »

Not sure what video you are talking about but it certainly wasn't a year ago. MM93 has had impressive skills and speed in the dirt for quite some time.

Added reply in a thread Shoei VFX-Evo Fit 7/16/2019 9:37 AM

make sure sizing is right, I was fitted by a Shoei rep at their booth during an event. My previous VFX-W was a Large and after measuring me they suggested I was actually a Medium. Thats what I have in my new Evo and I love it. According to them its a ... more »

Added reply in a thread The Urban Rider- Alta at a Water Park 7/1/2019 2:55 PM

Cool video! That water park was recently bought by some ex-pro surfers and will soon be the next big wave pool (there are 2 in TX and Kelly Slaters private one in Central California). Excited to see how that turns out.

Who is "they"? Zaca was on private property and shut down by the owner of that property. LOL. Your anger and party loyalty is a bit misguided.

Added reply in a thread A little help needed in CA 6/29/2019 10:33 AM

Skuzzy - I just took your tone about California being California as having a certain political bias, my bad. The inconclusive studies are from the State Park, not the CCC. The real point of this whole fiasco is being overlooked here. It's essentially ... more »

Added reply in a thread A little help needed in CA 6/29/2019 9:12 AM

I think there is certainly a middle ground that can be reached, I’m hoping they go that route instead of complete closure. Oceano Dunes is the busiest park in the CA system. That says something. With all of the $$ that the camping and day use fees bring ... more »

what sort of reasoning is there in removing the kill switch?

I think this is old news, but as a card-carrying member of the grammar nazi's, I applaud you for not spelling it "resign".
