Follow along for a great three day ride!
I often receive the privilege to ride with people from all the corners of the globe. While living in Peru, one thing I notice is that very few Peruvians have ever ridden in the areas around Cusco where I live and ride. So when I get a chance to show some locals(Peruvians) some of the secrets of their country, I try to do it well.
This is what its like to ride in the Andes of Peru...Check it out!
I met up with the b
Guiding groups of dirtbikers through the Andes of Peru is surreal. First of all, it is a huge privilege to be able to do what I do. I love riding dirtbikes as much as anybody possibly can. Combine that with serving others by leading groups on various trails, providing communication support such as translating a menu, or taking a picture or video to help recall the memory at a later date, these are the things that I do. There are many other tasks as well, but to simplify things, my job isn't much
This month I want to discuss three easy ways to improve engine cooling for your dirt bike or ATV and explain why they are effective.
As improvements are made to an engine that increase its power, the amount of heat the engine will create will also increase. Effectively removing heat from the engine and cooling it is very important as the power output of the engine goes up. The cooler an engine runs, the more power it can produce. There are three ways that the aftermarket attempts to improv
The seat bounce is a fundamental MX jumping technique and in this video I cover how to seat bounce, when, and why. Are you using the seat bounce? How's your technique? Struggling with anything? Hit me up in the comments section below! I'm here to help you improve your riding skills so you can be a more effective racer or simply have more fun & ride more safely.

There’s nothing more alarming than realizing your four-stroke powered pride and joy is burning and consuming abnormal amounts of oil. Whether it’s a first-hand account or lending a sympathetic ear to a buddy dealing with the problem, we’ve all been there to some degree. I recently had a customer detail his machine’s oil consumption problems and logically explained away all the possible reasons why the engine could be burning oil. He had always changed his filter routinely and oiled it properly,
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.

My first “ride” on the RXB-250 ended up being a break-in/shakedown session during one of my daughter’s club rides with Little Speedsters (littlespeedsters.com). The owner, Christophe, gives

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

Well reinstalling the rebuilt motor for my 06 KX 250F . It kept bogging down and stalling out then noticed it would lock up when trying to kick it over turns out the bottom end was done. So she's all rebuilt professionally $3000 I learned my lesson im selling all my used bikes this winter and I'm buying new.Then selling them every winter and just buy new 250 and 450 replacements every spring then sell them every winter.That way every year from now on I got something new that I don't have to scre
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
