  1. Anyone know what happened to Steven Mages? He took a pretty blatant shot at Jacob Hayes(who may or may not have deserved it) in his heat race in rd 1. Didn't see him in the LCQ and didn't see him at rd 2. I'm sure he got fined and suspended. Just wondering if they sidelined him for the entire season to set an example?
  2. Until you're on the ground with a dislocated shoulder.
  3. Have you replaced your radiator cap with a 1.6 kg/cm2? Raises the boiling point approx 25 deg https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/965/31855/Tusk-High-Pressure-Radiator-Cap?v=11332
  4. From Honda they are somewhere around $200 Check Ride Engineering's website. They sell them too. https://ride-engineering.com/
  5. Ride engineering for sure! Call Adrian or Jeff and tell them what you're looking for. They are super cool and ultra knowledgable. Adrian has test riders from hot pros to novice vets test his products to know what setup works best for each level of rider. Tell him what you're looking for and they will shoot you straight with no BS. https://www.facebook.com/RideEngineeringInc/posts/10155083582603947 https://ride-engineering.com/
  6. My wife is your height and she rides a CRF125F. We don't ride trails but the 125F & 150F are great trail bikes. Cushy seat, electric start and low maintenance. She had never ridden a motorcycle before this bike. She has a great time tooling around on the jr track with the kids. I suggest sitting on one at a dealer before making a decision. They're tough to find on CL. People hang on to them long term because they are just straight up fun if you're not racing or riding at race pace.
  7. I skydive also and that's been my home DZ since I moved to So Cal. We call the dirt in the landing 'moon dust' because it gets in EVERYTHING! Blue Skies my friend!!
  8. That's the one. I forgot about him kicking it off the stand Silver Excel rims can take a beating.
  9. Dude I bought my 2013 RMZ450 from said he bought it from Weston's mechanic after his last privateer season. Small world in So Cal MX community. I dressed it up a bit and had Factory Connection set up the suspension for me but didn't touch the motor. It was seriously rude already!
  10. Skydive Elsinore is right next to Lake Elsinore MX also. Pretty cool to watch the skydivers landing when you're sitting in the pits!
  11. Speaking of pros at lake elsinore... http://racerxonline.com/2017/12/18/racer-x-films-weston-peick-supercross-testing
  12. I usually ride at Lake Elsinore Mx just because it's closest to me. http://www.racele.com Great practice facility with a vet track, int track, main track for $30/day. That's pretty much the going rate for all the tracks. They have a sx track open in the winter for pros so you need a pro license to get on and it's $60/day. There's an RV park 5 min away but it's kind of ghetto. I wouldn't stay there unless your bike and gear are locked up inside a trailer or something. https://www.casademoble.com/ There's other rv parks close according to google. Pala casino has an RV park right up the street from pala raceway. https://www.palacasino.com/resort/rv-resort/ http://raceway.palatribe.com Cahuilla Creek mx is also about 30-45 min from pala and has an AMAZING natural terrain layout and great loamy dirt. http://www.cahuillacreekmotocross.com/ All the pricing is similar but Cahuilla is only open on Wed & Sat. Most of the others are open Friday-Tues. Milestone MX is open 7 days a week and has an awesome compound as well. Beginner, vet, main and sx tracks with lighting. Not sure where to camp though since it's right smack in the middle of an industrial area. http://milestonemx.com This time of year there's a good chance you'll see riders practicing at Lake Elsinore and Milestone that you recognize from Monster Energy SX.
  13. I think you got all the experience you can out of that class then. You'll get better faster if you move up and leave clowns like that behind you. When I was 15 I talked my parents into taking me to a training camp for a week with pros for coaching. Best thing I ever did for my riding. Looks like you have a nice bike. If it was me I would spend money on training for now. You're right in the heart of a lot of AMA pro's training programs. You'll get more out of your riding for sure. I googled "Florida motocross training" and got a bunch of results. Even found a few places in GA. Good luck. The winners are the ones who want it the worst! http:// https://www.google.com/search?q=florida+motocross+training&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-us&client=safari
  14. I'd say your putting blame in the wrong place. Even if that dude wasn't there you still had 6 other people ahead of you. Charge harder, brake later and carry more momentum.
  15. Crack that bleeder and use a C clamp to push the caliper piston back in with an old pad. The reason you crack the bleeder is to prevent contamination around the piston from being forced back up the line. Brake fluid is hygroscopic. That means it "readily absorbs moisture" along with other contaminants. Ever wonder why fluid turns black and brakes get spongy? It will actually absorb moisture through the rubber brake line over time. Flushing you brake fluid and keeping it fresh and yellow is every bit as important to braking performance as fresh pads and bleeding the system. Also using a $40 hand vacuum bleeder will make an hour of aggravation a 10 minute task. Any extra air in or around the master cylinder can be handled by simply working the brake lever and wiggling the brake line with the reservoir cover off. Also Dot 4 has a higher boiling point than Dot 3 in case you're wondering why it's more expensive.
