You make some valid points, Chris. Personally, I love motocross more now(age 47) than I did when I was 18 riding a crappy Suzuki TS90. To get more track time on race days, I ride two classes and make sure they don't schedule them back to back. Pit riding/racing annoys me more than lax track maintenance because I view motocross as having a rough a** track. Not that track maintenance is low on my priority list, but I would prefer that the track be left rough at times. Deep ruts in corners should be graded because riders can't do it themselves with their bikes. Bobcats can do this pretty quickly. I try not to be too critical since running a track is not easy and everyone has their own idea of how it should be operated. YZThumpa and I are trying to get our local track owner to make certain jump landings safer by taking away the wall-slam if you come up short. The local fast guys resist this because they want the jumps intimidating and dangerous to favor their do-or-die style. This sport is dangerous enough without making it unnecessarily dangerous.
