So, how's it feel to ride with just a twisted front end after a prang, boys? I assume most here actually ride motorcycles?

Add in bent bars, and let's see how many of us could ride with any safety or surety, just at our 'average' speeds?

So, on an SX track, that I'm pretty sure none of us here could negotiate at any decent level of speed, he should be able to get back out there and 'pin it'.

I'd not want him out on the track on a bike in that condition - as it is, he's been enough of a danger to other riders, over the years. And, a few riders had already dropped out of the race, so, I think he got a point, or two?

And doesn't that Suzuki handle like a P.O.S? Sort of like his Yamaha. I don't often hold much by MXA's writings, but their comment about it not being the Yamaha, or words to that effect, in their race report, rings rather true. With so many Yanks being so into their sorts 'statistics', I'd love to see those relating to his SX prangs on the reverse Yam, and the Suzuki, a bike with a rep. as being perhaps the best handling 450, for the last few years.

I haven't seen anyone suggest JS could/should go as fast with bent bars as he was going, perhaps nurse the bike to the finish and get some points possibly.

It'll be a shame if JS loses the championship by a point or two or three
Uhh, he got four points. The same four points he would have got after being passed by the rest of the field.

Walking away was the smartest choice for his bid at the title and thus the best was to satisfy his team commitments and sponsors.

Yeah I wish they'd do a video like that, except with the mechanic. And he gives us a blow by blow of what is done to the bike during the day and why.

But, I'm a sucker for mechanic shows. I used to love American Restoration for that reason until they stopped showing them working on the projects and explaining how they restored the stuff.

They probably did that since the high costs do not justify the kind of work you get with them. I have yet to see them do a project and not have the paint all orange peeled.

Laugh

Sooo, Rock and The RD bust everyones ass and this thread DIES


RV crashing getting to be as routine as JS7's old days?


Rock gonna be the first rook since Mac to lock up the title?



Reed hitting the podium? well, i guess that's old news..


Malcolm? anyone watch SX around here?


Comments on the new Yamai's? Is this thing on?(tap tap)




OK, so Orange is the new DPRK around SX(or any WR250), but damn, even RD5's ill setup bike was FLYING...

the way he caught up CR22 wasn't a knock on 22 but pure speed by RD5 on the pumpkin coach..


Reed's bike didn't look good in the whoops..



and finally,
that was a narrow track...?




Alessi, there's no crying in SX...or was the waterworks when someone told him that wasn't the main?


RV's dirrrty pass for the win, leaving RV faceplanted on the dirt... hope that makes a Fathead, and sent to Alessi....

$.02 to have heard Sqwuidds thoughts when Alessi outrode RV

10 years, no heat wins? was that right?

guess Alessi is back to beating on RV and making him look like the overhyped, only wins when everyone is hurt or takes a bad bike like the 3 years back KTM for a handicap...





There.....that ought to ....



no predictions yet?



Rock repeats, Stewart wins? talk to me, Goose!

can i get a wooooooooo Supercross is finally BACK!!
