PHOTO OF THE WEEK
What a difference a week makes! These images were taken exactly 7 days apart. With a major storm hitting SoCal we got our 125cc Shootout testing done just in time. Now we just have to wait a few day for the rain to stop and the trails will be epic.
Have you seen the Dirt Bike Magazine Vlog #7 ? You don’t want to miss this one, see a behind the scenes look of our 125cc MX Shootout video day with Travis “Raw Dog” Fant, Ron “Money Shot” Lawson, Mark “Mad Dog” Tilley and test riders . We guarantee you will be entertained. Click Here or the image above to see the video.
Ron Lawson was somehow able to talk Honda into letting us shoot Ricky Brabec’s 2024 Dakar Rally winning machine in the Dirt Bike Magazine studio. Of course under the supervision of Johnny Campbell. See the exclusive shots and get some information on the all new machine by clicking HERE or the image above .
Turning a GasGas MC250 2-Stroke into a fire breathing 500cc dragon is now possible! Doubling the displacement might sound completely crazy, but that might have been the easiest thing to accomplish on this project with the help of Riley and the crew at BRC Racing in Canada. The BRC’s 500cc engine conversion is designed to bolt right into the last-generation KTM, Husqvarna and GasGas steel frame without major modifications. Select “donor” internal (complete transmission with clutch) and electrical parts were needed from the MC250 engine. We did have to source out all the electric starter parts from KTM, because our donor engine was a kickstart-only model. Click the image above or HERE for the full build story.
What is an AJP PR7 ? In the case of the AJP PR7, the concept of specialization has been taken a step further than ever before. It belongs to a category of American off-road bikes so specific and focused that it doesn’t yet have a name. We’ll call it a rally bike for now, even though the activity doesn’t really exist over here—not yet anyway. See the full test here or click the image above for more.
TRAVIS TIMES 2
Digging thought Dirt Bike‘s vast archives we picked out two images of one of our favorite humans, Travis Pastrana, shot one year apart at the Glen Helen National MX.
Travis Pastrana was one of many riders who benefitted from leadership from Roger DeCoster. In those years, Roger was team manager at Suzuki and it was also providing monthly material for Dirt Bike Magazine as Executive editor. You can read about Roger’s early dealings with Travis here, in a feature penned by Roger in 1999.
