The Red Tide burned bright in the late 80’s with JMB (111), RJ (1), Jeff Stanton (7) and Guy Cooper (10) harassing every Supercross event with strong starts, machines that were at the top of the evolutionary chain and a stacked deck in the rider department

SIDI CROSSFIRE 3 SRS – VIDEO #3

Adjustable Calf System: protection and  fit. 

image008

 The new Sidi CROSSFIRE 3 SRS boot journey continues. With this video Sidi introduces the Adjustable Calf System; a very important feature designed to improve fit and protection. The boot leg has a replaceable muffler guard plate on the inside, to protect the leg from the heat of the motor and defend against wear and tear. This part with the  rubber insert also allows the rider a firmer leg grip on the motorcycle chassis.

However, the most important feature is the Adjustable Calf System, which allows for the expansion of the boot’s opening through a series of simple and practical adjustments, to ensure a perfectly comfortable fit for even the largest calves. Furthermore, this way we can meet the needs of riders who often wear knee braces, which need more room to be placed, so the boot closes properly in any case.

Galfer’s braided steel brake lines improve braking performance and feel at the lever by removing the flex that often occurs in OEM rubber lines under pressure. 100% of the pressure at the lever is transmitted to the caliper, giving maximum feedback from the braking system to the rider.

Big pistons, dual Coors and a cowboy hat highlight the life of the moto spectator. This particular specimen looks scary.

JOSH STRANG BREAKS ANKLE ON DAY ONE !!

screen-shot-2016-10-11-at-3-36-48-pm

Halfway into the opening day of competition at the International Six Days Enduro and Australia’s hopes of defending their title were slammed into paste.  On the first special test of lap two, World Trophy team member Josh Strang crashed out with suspected broken right ankle.

It’s unlikely that he’ll be able to continue in the competition.

With all four trophy riders counting each day, this obviously comes as a severe blow to Australia’s hopes of making it two wins in a row.

The FIM ISDE rulebook (30 April 2016) states all riders must finish each day and in the event of a retirement a three-hour penalty is attached to each day of competition remaining…

I love this shot! Robb Mesecher sent it to me and I think he was still mowing on Captain Crunch and riding a Stingray when we (Dirt Bike) performed our 1982 250 motocross shootout. The performers…Jon Miller, Steve Schmitz, Kenny Zahrt, Mike Webb, Nick Hale, John Caper and Rick Salmon!!
