Yamaha SX testing
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivOOk0YNWfs Dude super excited to see Yamaha might finally be in the big boy game. Man Barcia is just ripping, he looks super comfy and that hammer in hard style is back! Didn't expect to see Plessinger going tepidly through the whoops. He looked good in the air so that was good to see. I take that playfulness to me he likes the bike. I think he is going to brought to the woodshed though when he moves up.
This is cool RV on all big bikes sold by Yamaha
https://motocross.transworld.net/videos/ryan-villopoto-vs/?amp&__twitter_impression=true   They are going to do a full write up of the data ,this hasn't been done as far as I know One thing I disagree with RV ,he says the 450 wasn't much faster on the straight at 62.8mph Vs 60 on the 250 2t ,to me that's huge ,5% more is big imo Another interesting point ,he says he would prefer the 250f as his own personal bike ,saying it has the right amount of power ,you could interpret that as the 450 is too powerful even for a guy that was the fastest man on the planet

Quads get very sore while riding
So this is an issue I've been dealing with for quite a few years but it's really bad lately. It used to be that it would only really start bugging me after several hours of riding and mostly just while going downhill. Lately though it does not seem to take long for my quads to really start screaming and I just can't stay standing. I should add that I do have MS and I fear that maybe this is directly related which could mean the end of my riding or that it's getting very close. I dunno though, do other people have issues with this and if so what can be done to deal with it? What exercises can be done to strengthen my quads for longer rides?  I should also add that I already do workout 3+ days /week and always do at least 20 min of high impact cardio (stationary bike or elliptical) plus squats and other leg exercises.
Winter Physical Conditioning?
Hi guys.  Does anyone do physical conditioning in the winter?  Specifically, I have to work on my legs for next year.  And following Murphy's law,  my treadmill died.  That's #2 I've worn out.   Has anyone got any leg conditioning tips until I get a new treadmill?  That's probably going to be a while since they cost as much as another bike! Thanks.
Pick-up Truck Camper Shell - Topper- Cap that will fit Motocross bike
I am looking at the option of moving away from my full size Standard Wheel base Dodge van to a long bed Pick-up truck with a fiberglass or even a utility top - shell.  I have seen on the web  ... the ARE RT Tall Camper Shell but it looks like they are not making at more ... not on there web site at least.  Any other ideas of suggestions?  I am looking a long bed 2009 and up Ford F150 or any other long bed as the plat form.

The fuse is not blown and I’ve checked every wire and haven’t noticed a problem. Anyone have any ideas. *the battery is brand new aswell

I need some advice on my damaged tire bead
This is my beater machine that I don’t really care about, I got it for free and I would prefer to spend no money on, but if there is no way around it I will do it, I’m wondering if this bead could be repaired or just ran, , it appears it’s been this way for a while because of the rust, I am running a tube so it doesn’t need to be air tight it just needs to hold under the pressure. If I absolutely need new tires what do you guys think about these super cheap ones I found, i really like them because they seem to be a reproduction of the ones I had on there, and I liked the good traction in the snow

Cant find anything with the search option
Hello, everytime I try to search for something I can never find anything close to what I'm looking for. I know the information is there because Google tells me TT has what I'm looking for. For example, if I search "Chinese knockoff keihin pwk airstyker carburetor" nothing even close pops up, no matter if I search posting title only or topic or whatever. I know that's a name of a posting. Can you guys please fix this issue? It would make finding info a lot easier and keep multiple repeated threads from being made. Thank you
Can’t Post Pics From App (iOS 12.1)
Hey TT,   Sorry if I’ve overlooked the article or haven’t searched well enough, but does anyone else have to try desktop mode to post pics in topics?   Seems like the buttons may be hidden near the bottom in the app or something.. any thoughts or input?   -Dave
