    post your worst MX injury

    Looped out a new KTM 250SX 2nd time out in the whoops, throttle stuck whip open.Broken L1 resulting in 10 2" screws and 2 11" Ti rods. Numb mid section and have to stick a cath in me to drain bladder. I have the hardware that is in my back tattoed on my back to scale. And yes I still ride... dirt is hard to get out of ya! LOL

    Considering water does not compress, looks like a somebodies going to be doing a lot of gear oil changing. Otherwise looks pretty cool!

    L1-T10 fusion? with pix

    I can bend and touch my toes yes, but the change in atomspheric pressure affects my back. My hardware acts as antenna for cold weather and sometimes aches. For me the hardest part of riding is not being able to feel my feet... having to put them down in an off camber spot is kinda scary. Just tel yourself after sugery it will get better day by day. You know the risks, sometime you have to pay to play. Might try your hand at riding offroad it is easier and your or not putting your body 15ft in the air. Good luck bro and wear a Lett brace if you ride MX again.

    Who was your hero growing up?

    The guy who whipped my stinking but as a kid, showed me how to ride a bike,took me to races when he was sick,the guy who I am still to the day getting to know.... my dad,pop,o'l man and the guy who sold my bike cuz I beatup the neighbor kid. But aside from all that the guy who gave me a lot in riding is David Bailey and had been since '84. Sure this clip has been posted before, but some of the younger riders might get something from this!

    What glue to repair plastic shroud tabs?

    You might look into Gorilla Glue!

    Would this work?

    I have never heard of that product nor seen it done. However I have seen the end result on an older RM tank that was faded from the early '80. Now how well it could hold up I have no clue. I've seen peope use the "Krylon Fusion" plastic spray paint with sub-par results.

    New guy here, what year to get, I have searched.

    Unless you are hellbent on an AL frame which might be hard to find on that budget. I'd snag an '02 or newer, plastics changed in '02 and still the same till '09. '05 had a new frontend and I think '06 and new ahd even better susp up front. Feel free to correct me anyone lol!
