So many of us have one. We drag it around each ride. Some mount it to our helmets, some put it on a chest, and yet some use it with a tripod. The action camera has been a catalyst in the world of sports to bring all of its excitement to a screen near you.
I remember back in college duct taping a big VHS camera around our bodies as we leapt off bridges. We loved to revisit the adventure later on. There is something captivating about sharing experiences with others. It's part of a visual sto
In this offroad motorcycle training video, I want to show you the benefits of using your front and rear brakes at the same time for maximum control and speed. Give it a watch, see how you're doing, and of course, hit me up in the comment section below if you have any questions or comments.
Brian Garrahan Off-road Training
Over the course of my time operating MotoMission Peru, I have had various opportunities to host/guide dirt bike adventures with other riders. I have a special place in my heart for father/son adventures. I guess it must have something to do with the sentiment I have with my dad.

Between riders riding and racing every weekend, a frequent question is how to recover properly. If you have followed me for any period of time, you know that I am an advocate for one day of rest per week and to pull back the overall volume and intensity every six weeks to allow your body to rejuvenate both mentally and physically (at a blood chemistry level). What does that look like?
1. Rest Means Rest: this is not the day to go to a theme park,run errands that have you outside and in th
Mistake #1: Not knowing YOUR sport specific heart rate training zone
Your maximum heart rate number changes specific to the sport that you are training and racing. For example, your maximum heart rate on the motorcycle will be higher than on a bicycle (because of the amount of muscle you are using). A frequent mistake athletes make is completing a maximum heart rate assessment within one discipline and then use the established heart rate training zones across all forms of training and ra
Was Psychologist Abraham Maslow wrong when he created his Hierarchy of Needs? When you look at the human race and our desire to reach our fullest potential (financially, professionally, personally and athletically) we have the flow pattern completely upside down – Maslow was correct!
When working with individuals around the world, there is one constant word that comes up when desirable goals don’t become a reality – weak. Comments like I wasn’t “tough” enough and I “quit” – most interpre
As 2019 comes to a close, stop and ask yourself “What has been my biggest frustration(s) of 2019?” Are they the same ones that you had in 2018 or even 2017?
During this podcast, I shares my four-step process to identify, isolate, address, and eliminate the specific frustrations you experienced in 2019.
This unique four-step process will provide you a road map to immediate progress and move you closer to achieving your fullest potential as an individual and/or athlete.
In this video, I outline the three reasons why individuals become electrolyte deficient.
After watching this video, you will understand what causes this dreaded situation and ironically, the faster, harder or longer you train/race, the more susceptible you become to running low on electrolytes.
The result? You to lose speed, strength and endurance!
In this video, I discuss the importance of understanding the various energy systems from aerobic to anaerobic and how identifying which energy system is your "weakest" is the quickest way to making incremental improvements both in training and ultimately racing to your fullest potential. Literally, what you don't know is what is holding you back!

Greetings, followers and fans of those loving “orphan toys.” My apologies for the extended gap between blog posts. More important things in life got in the way over the summer (passing of a relative, relocation of another, and other such worthwhile uses of focus). Thank you for coming back to check the latest.
KMR02 and I have been getting along quite well with the little time we’ve had together. A very active thread on this bike has spawned itself in the “Chinese bikes” section of TT
So my 07 CRF 450R recently decided it would bog a bit soon as I would come up to a jump. It would bog for couple seconds then all of a sudden the power would come then when I would down shift to first gear pulling up to my truck it now stalls. I had the valves readjusted by the nearest Honda dealer for $600 three years ago and really only about 80 hours on vavle adjustment and I'm know perfestional rider but I'm decent. Now to get it to start I need to give it a bit of throttle. Typically I jus
Coach Robb Podcast: The Fine Line Between Achievement & Self Sacrifice
Behind every achievement in life, there has to be a commitment to the work and sweat equity necessary to complete each milestone associated with accomplishment. However, knowing when to rest, when to push moderately and when to give 100% is the million dollar question that has to be asked and answered on a daily basis to avoid crossing over that fine line into mental and physical fatigue and ultimately tapping out o
When it comes to getting through a week, nothing is more exhausting than being mentally spent. There are numerous articles and videos out there addressing how to offset muscular fatigue, but during this podcast, I take a look at the big 10-pound muscle on top of your shoulders – your brain – and help you get a clear understanding why mental fatigue sneaks up on you when you least expect it!
When it comes to the physical signs of fatigue such as tired muscles, cramping, slower speeds, less
If you’ve ever experienced a ride or race where your crankcases got damaged in some way, whether from a rock or engine failure you know just how painful dealing with the aftermath of damaged crankcases can be. For those of you who haven’t had to deal with crankcase issues, consider yourselves lucky and know that if you stay in motorsports long enough, your time will come. Late last year I picked up a 2005 Honda CRF250 project bike (click here to read about it) which came with crankcase damage. T
Nothing will stall progress like an injury and/or an illness. If you struggle with getting sick frequently, not seeing decreased body fat or not seeing an increase in muscle mass (or definition) - you will be surprised what is keeping these personal goals from becoming a reality. Watch this short three minute video and learn what you can do immediately to turn this situation around TODAY!
Thanks for watching!
There is a HUGE difference between dropping weight and dropping body fat. If you want to lose true body fat, watch this video and get a true understanding on why individuals actually GAIN body fat while reducing calories and adding exercise.
Note: this is why some racer's actually gain body fat while training too hard!
I consult with many athletes and entrepreneurs in various industries all around the world. In this video, I outline the one habit that I use with them all that will increase your productivity, profitability, health and overall enjoyment starting tomorrow.
The habit doesn’t take more than ten minutes to complete each day but is rarely implemented; however, once it is understood, embraced and implemented, it is seldom overlooked going forward with staggering results!
Hello, and greetings from King Moon Racer (also known as DingerJunkie). It has been far too long since my last update on the second official KMR Blog Project. Unfortunately, life has a habit of getting in the way. I hope the info makes up for the delay…my apologies.

If you are taking over the counter medications or have been prescribed pharmaceuticals, you may be experiencing symptoms such as depression, fatigue, hair loss, irritability, anemia, loss of smell/taste, wounds that won’t heal and even sexual dysfunction… to name a few.
During the first half of this podcast, I discuss how antacids, antibiotics, cholesterol medication, hormones, anti-inflammatories and diuretics could be leading to micro nutrient deficiencies resulting in unwanted symptoms.
Have you ever ridden a buddy’s bike and walked away wishing that you didn’t have to get off because everything just clicked as you were riding it? On their bike, you could rail every corner, absorb every bump effortlessly, and feel completely stable at high speeds. Once you got back on your bike it feels slow, riding over rough terrain wears you out, and taking corners is best described as unpredictable. To make matters worse, you and your buddy could have the exact same bike! What could possibl

My recent purchase of King Moon Racer 02, an Orion Powersports RXB-39, has given me an opportunity to expose other riders to information they may not have been able to find clearly stated in other avenues. Because this is ThumperTalk, most of that desired information is about the bikes, and I’m looking forward to providing more there. However, day-job duties have me travelling this week, so trail data will have to wait a bit.
Meanwhile, there is something possibly more important to cove
If you struggle to think clearly at work or school first thing in the morning, you will be surprised to learn the reason why this happens. The good news is you can turn these symptoms around quickly and easily! Watch, implement and enjoy improved mental clarity to jump start your day.
This will be one of two rapid-fire blog entries related to my beginning experiences with the Orion RXB-39, which is a custom-to-distributor variant of the XMOTOS XB39.
This is the first “crate-bike” I’ve ever experienced, and I believe that the entire sales/distribution model for that deserves a deep-dive for itself. Look for a post on that shortly. This particular post is specifically about the bike itself, the inspection process and what I thought of the first interactions with/on the
Nothing drives the volume of emails to my offices like the subject (and frustrations) associated with food. In this podcast, I have consolidated emails from listeners who have asked for help in addressing specific health issues with food.
If you have followed my podcasts or online articles, you know that I don't like the fact that most people feel like a mushroom when it comes to health, wellness and performance: they are kept in the dark and covered in bullshit! In this podcast, I take th
