MX Dictionary

Recommended Posts

LINK TO THE DICTIONARY: http://www.mxscrubs.com/?page_id=122

Hey guys

I was going to create a motocross dictionary for my website which is:

www.mxscrubs.com

Basically all of the motocross lingo I was going to encrypt onto one page just for references incase anyone wanted to know what something meant, etc. The basics of a dictionary, only some of the things the real dictionary doesn't cover.

So basically I know I'll forget many, and know that many people on here can help me cover all that I forget. All the help is appreciated.

EDIT: I added a tricks section as well due to request. If you post a trick though, PLEASE INCLUDE A DEFINITION

arenacross and ax are the same thing

berm is a bank of dirt use to help to turn (i like to saw em in half)

braking bumps are caused when the rear wheele i lock up and make nastey little ruts in the racing surface

Case- when you come up short and hit he face of he next jump

gate- where you start

LCQ-last chance qualifyer

DNF-did not finish

main-combination of all heat and LCQ qualifyers

premix-mix of gas and oil that 2t use

holeshot-first one to the end of the first turn

roost-dirt thrown by wheele

thumper-4 stroke

AMA-american motorcycle assosiation

table top-jump with dip inbetween

triple-when someone jumps 3 jumps in one jump

whoops- bunch of little hills you have to skip over

whip- throwin the rear end of bike out sidway

stoppie-front on ground rear in the air

2stoke- piston powerstrokes every 2 stoke

4stoke-piston powerstrokes ever 4 stoke

all i got time for now dude:thumbsup:

Thanks for the reply guys. Hey Berm Saw thanks man for some definitions as well. You don't have to add any definitions to the words though if you don't feel like the typing job. I'll be sure to include any names of helpers! Thanks again, any others are very welcome.

2stoke- piston powerstrokes every 2 stoke

4stoke-piston powerstrokes ever 4 stoke

whats a powerstroke? a 2 stroke fires every revolution and a fourstroke fires once every other revolution.

the powerstroke is the stroke that makes power....when the piston is being pushed down by the gases

BTW-a revolution is 2 strokes

You should include 4T for 4 stroke and 2T for 2 strokes. Also different brands nick names like Big Red, Blue Brigade/Yamadog, Green Machine etc...

Awesome, added some more. Any more words?

I am going to try and do as many definitions as possible, and if there are some missing, I will post the link and let anyone answer them. :applause:

What about a section on FMX tricks?

Having said that.....what about categorizing them? Bike; Riding; Tricks; Track; Slang

I vote "sticky" when it's done.....or as done as it can get for now.

Yeah I can do a tricks section as well, though if you post a trick please include a definition as well, as I am not too good with the freestyle world.

Breaking it down may be a good idea as well. Definitely am going to take it into consideration. And making it a stick would also help!
