Supercross Overly Persistent Fans

Recommended Posts

Kdub knows how to handle them.

The little guy said to hell with security and timed qualifying practice and followed Kevin halfway into staging.

Pretty cool watching him make time for the little dude when he was obviously rushed to get out there.

As if anyone else needed another reason to root for Windham. :thumbsup:

That's awesome! I still remember when he was introduced in the opening ceremonies to "Daughters" John Mayer a couple years ago in Atlanta. I've always admired this good ole country boy.

i would bet if that was any other top rider they would of had the kid beat up by there bodyguards lmao

I was standing beside the pit exit to practice when J-Law came walking by following his mechanic and bike with his dumb ass head phones on. Some little guy walked up to get his sig and without even looking down he just nudged him out the way and kept on walking lol.

Kdub spent a lot of time with the fans in the pits as did some of the other Honda riders. When I saw Dungey he was very cordial also and then you had Pourcel who I heard ignored everybody at Kawasaki party Friday night. (I guess it's a french thing)

JLaw wasn't that bad. Talked to him for just a second (as I know they all are busy and preparing to do their job) but he seemed pretty cool and down to talk to people. May just have been because they were trying to get back to the rig to make adjustments, idk just my thoughts. Feel bad for the little guy still tho. Kdub is awesome with fans, Now that :foul:hole pourcel is a douche. Watched him sign autographs, this guy is a joke and we have to call him the champ? He wouldn't even look at what he was signing much less who he was signing it for. Just low class if you ask me, WE NEED A NEW CHAMP!!!!

What else would anyone expect from a FROG A__H0le, they are like exs who you treated very good but then royally screwed you over and acted like you never did anything for them. Typical ungrateful arrogant French, we shoulda let the germans keep their damn crossants,crepes and kept on airhammering their women in thier loser country! Nothing worse then Ungrateful Mofos!

My son got his picture with Andrew Short Saturday night in Atlanta. Andrew was in a hurry for an interview on the track over the PA but still took time for a pic and was super cool. There are some really good guys in our sport. Thanks again Andrew, you made the night for a four year old!

He reminds me of the french guy in Motocrossed a lot more.

Always glad to see those guys treating fans right - After all it's the fans who get the top guys their paychecks.

Back in the 7th grade (5 years ago, wow...) I went to the Offroad show here in So. Cal. and McGrath was signing autographs. I had just read his autobiography and done a report on him for school, and I was really excited to meet him and get the book signed. He looked like he didn't want to be there and while signing he was talking to someone from his team or something, who was sitting next to him. I waited in line for 2 hours just so he could jot his name down in my book, continue his conversation, and not even look up at me.

Needless to say I was severely disappointed. Last year at the Vegas championship though, I got to see Dungey and a few other guys; they all seemed nice.

Add Wey to that list too.

My son toted around this #plate at Seattle SX last year and Nick was the only one to get down on his knees to my sons level who was 4 at the time and actually take a minute with him instead of signing it and passing him along. Wey is awesome in my book:thumbsup:

      Hi Guys ,
      I'm in Australia and i am going to stream RBSR online , Red Bull site says start is 11:30 AEST ( Australian eastern standard time ) on the 20th Saturday
      which i don't think is correct . if it is on the 20th of Oct in the U.S at 1:30pm (racing must be about 4-5 pm) start on Saturday and Australia being 17 hours ahead wouldn't that make it a Sunday the 21st broadcast ?

      Growing up, seeing motovans at the track was possibly one of the coolest things.. while I was sleeping in my singlecab pickup. But hey, at the time, in highschool, my truck was cooler than some van. Now at this "age" 24... a van is quite a dang good idea, so I started looking. After a few facebook pots, a buddy of mine knew someone who had a 2001 E350 Passenger van sitting, and would get me a price. he told me it needed a radiator, and the spark plug blew out of cylinder 4 (common 5.4 triton issue). A few days go by, and he calls saying I can have it for FREE! they just needed it gone! So, I go out there with a friend of mine who has a 30ft gooseneck, and some starting fluid to make sure I don't get in too deep... we cant get it to fire without starting fluid, and ruled it out to a fuel pump. We pull the van on the trailer, stop by the parts store, and are headed home.


      The van was sitting stationary for 4 years... and smelled like it. but we'll get back there.. We dropped the tank, having to cut one of the tank straps and emptied the 4 year old fuel, put a new fuel pump in it, about 5 gallons of premium race fuel (fast and furious), and she fired up.  Next was the spark plug issue, I tapped the threads, and installed a helicoil along with new plug and coil pack, and we were good. Later I replaced the radiator after flushing the coolant system.

      The next day, we pulled out everything behind the first row bench seats, to include the headliner, rear AC duct, and side panels. Had to cut out the old seat belt mounts, and reinstalled the last bench where the first bench originally resided, since it was longer, but a few inches back to have optimal leg room. Then came the wall install... after lots of measuring once and cutting twice... I got it all figured out, and had the wall installed, then yellow stuffed "expanding foam" around all sides to ensure I wouldn't have fuel fumes in the cab. Finally I installed some flooring, just to give the bare metal some protection.
       
      After that, I was king of burned out on the van, before I even used it. She sat in my driveway for months before I was ticketed for having an unregistered vehicle parked outside.. gotta love florida.. I posted it forsale for a few days, then decided I would getRdone.

      So, off to the DMV, registered, and custom plates reading "MOTOVAN". Picked up a heavy duty cargo lock, fuel treatment, tons of black ice "little trees", and some R-134 to recharge the AC. She was making her first trip to the track that weekend!

      We changed the oil, 1,000 miles and 3 years overdue... only 2qts came out.. and sea foamed the green monster. After driving all over town, I parked in the driveway for a second, only to try to move it, and nothing on start up... not even after a jump.. so back to the parts store for a starter. After one of the worst starter jobs ever, she was cranking again. I figured we were problem free... but not before a brake line failed, and had to replace that guy, in order to take her to the track in 2 days!

      Finally! we were all clear, and we loaded three bikes into the van, and we were off! Two bikes is preferred.. but three worked, juts had to put most of the gear in the cab. Was a great day of riding, before a buddy crashed and ended the day with a concussion and a few compressed vertebrae..

      The van made another trip out this past weekend, and developed a new misfire, that ill be taking care of this week, and rechargeing the whole AC system since ill be sleeping in it this weekend for my first race in years!

      I will add some photos off my phone in a bit, until then, here is my youtube channel I created for the motovan!

      2019 Supercross season is near. Your "flavor fave" just took the MEC after being waved bye for the win.
      Same bet as last year..... $100 max customized jersey of your choice. First come first serve, but your ass BETTER pay up as others have to Mongo.
      I'm only taking the first "real" bet that approves my wager.... Tomac vs. the field 2019 SUPERCROSS. . He wins, you win. He looses, I win...... Who is the first taker? Anybody have the testicular fortitude? 
    • By Mongo134
      A friend of mine, BAHA, you know him, had a very good point I never thought of. All of these big $$ race purses are insured. Monster pays on insurance a percentage and should someone win the MEC as they did last night, the insurance company pays it out. 
      Now.... Had Savatgy just FUBAR'd in the sand like he should have to make the pass convincing that would be one thing. But since he was seen looking back several times to see where Tomac was at, caught slowing on camera on the backside of the track AND caught waving Tomac by to take the win.... I'm interested to see if insurance pays out or calls it a form of Insurance Fraud? 
    • By 150dirtcomber
      I could be late but in the post race interview Tomac strongly hinted he will race the GPs at some point in his career. Maybe the incentive will pass but he sounded serious about it.
