THE WEEKLY FEED: DONNER HARD ENDURO VIDEO • HUSKY TE150i MODS • WIN A COOL PIT BIKE!

BLAST FROM THE PAST

It doesn’t get any better than this! Tom Rapp on his Mitco Bultaco, hair flowing, his Pursang singing. Tom was one of the young American motocrossers who helped push the young sport into the mainstream.

 

 

SOCIAL DISTORTION

After having his fuel line unplug at the start, thinking he watered his TE300 out, restarting almost an hour later, cutting through the pack to an incredible top 20, Graham Jarvis was DQ’d for getting outside assistance.

TESTING

This week we were out playing with our HQV TE150i machine. N2Dirt completely went through the suspension, we fit on some additional goods for armor and durability and Ryan Koch was our pilot.

We fit on an Enduro Engineering end cap to make it spark legal, System Tech Racing’s front and rear disc guards, SXS Burly hand Guards and Bridgestone tires, an X40 front and an E50 Gummy rear.

 

N2Dirt did a great job of improving the suspension balance, upping the compliance and giving it better manners at speed. The Bridgestone tires were a big plus, the E50 Gummy rear chomped on technical trail and worked well in the sand.

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

This is in our high desert stomping grounds, circa maybe 1991. I was a big KX500 fan, the machine made good off-road power and was hugely reliable. At the time I was racing quite a few GPs, but really spent time playing off-road on the green machine.
