  1. Was wondering if anyone knew why Hansen and Hill did not show up on Sunday for 450 pro? It looked like Hill was there on Saturday for 250 pro. I know Hansen was in Mammoth. Maybe they both partied too much the night before at the Moti Gras. Also, I noticed Malcom Stewart was on the rider list for Sunday. Got all excited and didn't see him anywhere as well.
  2. Ok, lets make this simple to see if I get answer. Can I ride on it and just deal with the pain, or am I actually doing more harm?
  3. After reading through a ton of posts, I need to ask my own questions on this heavily discussed injury. About 3 months ago I fell in a simple right hand corner. Felt the sting of what I thought was a sprain. Seemed to not be too bad and I continued to ride for 2 months until the pain was consistently there. Finally went to the Ortho where I got X-rays (don't have them to share). Nothing was out of place. Doctor stated I may need an MRI, but decided to cast me for about 5 weeks just to immobilize the wrist if it was soft tissue damage. Got the cast off Monday and was instantly in pain when I bent my wrist back. Just so happens the area of pain is right below my thumb on the bottom of my wrist. Sounds like a Scaphoid fracture to me. So here are my questions: If it was not detected on an X-Ray, would the fracture be severe enough to need surgery? If it is a small hairline fracture would surgery be an option? Would surgery cut the heal time down? I believe the answer is yes here, so would I be able to elect to have surgery? Can I make the fracture worse by not using a brace and continuing regular activity? Can I ride on it and just deal with the pain, or am I actually doing more harm? Should get an MRI this week and have it read by Monday... I hope. Thanks in advance for any advice. This injury is very distressing to me considering how many things it affects for me, not just riding but surfing, Mtn biking, climbing. -Rob
  4. What is that crazy thing your buddy is riding?
  5. Steve, Your video is great. I got butterflies just watching the start. Makes me want to race again. How did you do? -Rob
  6. Twin pipes were a sales gimmick. Glad there gone.
  7. You can get the DR.D radiator lowering kit with the $50 you save by getting his pipe.
  8. North County Yamaha 6K OTD
  9. Thanks for the info. I'm sure a Powercore is better than my stock 08' YZ450 exhaust. -Rob
  10. So we have the 4.1, the Powercore and the Speed. Can anyone tell me the difference in these 3. I was thinking of buying a slip-on and am a bit confused. They all are available in Titanium so they should all weigh close to the same.
  11. It works perfect for me. First ride I couldn't even tell I had a neck brace on.
  12. Always looking for people to ride with!
  13. I usually stay more south. I think Milestone is about as far north as I usually go. Thanks for the offer though. May go to Elsinore on Wednesday. -Rob
  14. I assume you are referring to the cornering characteristics? Since I went from a 250 to a 450 the motor will be all new no matter what. -Rob
