Recommended Posts

Cool. Would be nice if a little time was given to the bikes, but I'm not holding my breath.

Hopefully so with the Honda/ Kawi battle!:moon::thumbsup:

UGH - They have an infomercial for a "Juicer" showing in Des Moines Iowa instead of showing the race. :moon:

There was an epic shot/video of Cam passing Robbie.........great inside move!:moon:

I agree! Not bad...the first 5 minutes I was getting ticked off with winter sport highlights then finally the race. Heard the announcer saying Ramirez was IM it...then later listed the teammates.

Why did Steele switch out his drive-line?

Whew! I almost missed it.Listing showed "paid Programming" with no info available. I couldn't bloody believe it, but I recorded anyways. Glad I did now! That was an awesome pass that Booger D pulled. Good show all in all.

Wasnt bad, I know they have to show the big dog's but it would have been nice to show a few clips from some of the non-top 5.

Otherwise it wasnt bad.

They keep getting better but still have a ways to go.

The producers tell us that they edit the show to appeal to a wide range of audience members in midle America, not neccessarily catering to the HARD CORE off road enthusiast. If thats true, too bad they can't deliver the show to IOWA and BAMA. The bikes finally stole the show becuase that was the case with PENHALL/KAWI vs. JCR.

Robby G got shrivel-dick when BoogerDaddy threw his pass. Really nice one there.

We had a small vibration at Borrego and decided to take 8-10 min and change it so we didn't have to risk a tranny or 3rd member. We were still top 5 at the end of Matomi so it put us back but not too far.

We had a good run and yes there were some giggles in the cab on that RG pass. For those of you that saw the web footage of us giving one to Pistol Pete that was about ten miles before the RG pass. Those two together made for one hell of a 15 mile segment!

Hard to pack Baja into 44 min......

I missed the show, but I think I might have seen the RG pass. Was it around RM 160ish just past Saldana?

If anybody out there recorded it I would love to get a copy. My direct tv has dropout the vs channel and now this. I might as well get a antenna and save my money for another trip out west. I did get some pretty good helmet cam of pre riding the mikes loop. I will trade!

Gary-I got it recorded. Be glad to put on a disc for ya. Just PM your address.

Just so you know, this was aired as 2 30 min "paid programming" shows so therer will be a little overlap in the middle.

Sweet! Not that you haven't done that before, but that was sweet and a story you can tell for a lifetime! You're the man! :moon:

Now you just need to come to a drivers meeting late, interrupt it by saying something like 'Cameron here, I just want to say can we make a rule that all the bikes have to stay to the right when the trophy trucks come up on them....' and you will be just like...

Never mind! :cheers:
