Indy SX track = good stuff?


So those who have seen it, tell me about this SX track at Indy?

I just want to see it on TV. I read transworld's report. The track sounds like literally like something else!

Reed+Stewart lapping riders up to 7th!

In Aus we have to wait until next Friday (Thurs in US) to see it on TV. Sounds like Larocco did a great job with the track design. I was disappointed in a lot of the tracks thus far. Itching to see this one.

Hopefully the SX organizers think more about avoiding easy and/or single lined tracks for the series remainder.

Looking at lap times (peak and average) the 450s (all of them) seem to get around this course a lot better than the 250s.

The was great!!! Not to many straights a lot of rythm sections and the hardest set of whoops I have ever seen. There where a lot of wrecks in the whoops. I know I sat 14 rows up from them. Most of the 250's had to rythm thru them except for the fast guys. Only a handfull of the 450's could ride them the rest had to rythm thru them. They had a couple sand sections too. I can't wait to see it on TV. Our vision got blocked from the tower and finish line bridge. You will love this track!!!!

Sounds like an old school lay out that is great. I look forward to watching it later today.

oldschool for sure.. designed by Mike LaRocco himself

Right on they let the home town boy design it. That's cool

That track was bad ass. There was no open straights to rest on and the whoops where killer. Even Reed couldn't skim them every lap. LaRocket did a heck of a job. :lol:

Track was killer! The whoops were so gnarly and a wall at the end! ***! Some of those dudes were sailing it and landing flat from 15-20ft. It made for a great show and many ppl doing different rhythms. LaROCK did an awesome job.:lol:

This track was very technical. The 250Fs were stuggling to get around several parts of the track. If you rode well at Indy, you had to be on ypour game. Great job, LaRocco.

It was an awesom track maybe you could find the torrent

I thought this was the best track of the season so far PERIOD!!!

TV did not make it look nearly as hard as it was...... Great race and track!!!!

It was indeed a sick track. I was there, watching countless people eat it going through the whoops. It was really different having a sand section in the beginning!

It looked pretty serious on the tube which never does justice. Hope they take note and we see more of that...

I was sitting front row at the 50 yard line lucky on the tickets!! The track was nasty.....heck they red flagged the lights main because 3/4 of the field went down in the first turn....the flaggers were real busy in the lights events





Great race:thumbsup:

Hire Mike full time!!!!

Thank guys.

Hire Mike full time!!!!
Now that sounds like a good idea.

In the Oct-Dec 2008 Aus SuperX series, they had one track with some huge and long woops. Only four riders could skim them consistently. Reed and J Marmont in the 450 class, and both the Moss brothers in the 250 class. Actually Reardon was getting them most of the time on his 450. McCoy was struggling. A shame Jay Marmont is not over there right now.

how come Marmont didnt go he wouldve went alrite

how come Marmont didnt go he wouldve went alrite
I've no idea. But I'm SURE team L&M or Factory Yamaha would have been be getting GOOD value out of him as a support rider. Do L&M have a second rider? Just kidding. :p

      Since there is no longer a street bike forum, is anyone watching MotoGP or interested?

      Hey guys, 
      I've used this forum as a "guest" for awhile now and I thought I'd share my build now that it's all coming together.  The primary purpose of this project is to help me train for roadracing my 2009 R1 at lower speeds as well as giving me a cheap alternative to racing the big bike. 
      Here's what she looked like when I picked it up from a local shop.  Paid $800 cash for the bike as you see it with 17' rims, FMF pipe, EBC 250mm front rotor and clip on handle bars.

      Fits PERFECT!

      Shake down run at the Herrin Compound last summer:

      As she sits today:

      So I have a 2008 yz450f and I would like to add some LED lights to it to make it street legal. Mainly just a headlight and a tail light and turn signals if I need to (which where I live hand signals work).
      So where I need help is getting power from the stator to a battery. Wiring from a battery to anything else I got and understand and don't need help with (but recommendations are welcome). So my questions are.
      What type of power is coming from the stator. AC or DC? Will I need a regulator or rectifier? How do I wire something from the stator to charge a battery? What would that wiring look like? Would this stator work? Anything else I should know? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

      KTM has held a unique record in 250SX since 2011—it’s the only brand to have won in every season. Kawasaki did not win in '15, Honda did not win in '17 (and so far, it has not done so this season), Yamaha had no wins in '13, and Suzuki did not have any in '11 nor between 2014-'17, while Husqvarna did not get any wins between '11 and '15. This consistency also yielded KTM's 40th victory in the 125/250 supercross classes, thanks to Jordon Smith's first win in 2018 at last Saturday night's Daytona SX. The Austrian KTM got its first triumph in small-bore supercross back in 2001, with the South African Grant Langston. The most successful KTM winner is Marvin Musquin, who won 11 times. So far, KTM has collected 22 wins in the West Region, while Smith's win was KTM's 18th victory in the East Region. KTM also took its second Daytona victory; Musquin got the first one in '15.
