That does not bother me, if there is mud, I am probably going to get dirty no matter what tire I am riding.

I was kind of rooting for the Hondas because it's nice to see some competition, but they ain't doin' so hot. Lopez is on a Husky, I believe.

My Dad loved to trot-line and I have spent a lot of time running lines through the night with him and my brother. Curiously, I never did much rod fishing for catfish growing up, however my grown son has gotten into rod fishing for catfish on the rivers around St. Louis and he pulls in some pretty big cats. I have a heavy duty rig set up for catfish. I just need to make more time to go fishing. Too much work and too many interests competing for what leisure time I have.

Hell, I don't root for someone because of the brand they ride, well unless it pisses off the Beemer dorks, then I'm all about it.

The Honda factory team had two of it top riders injured in testing the week before leaving for SA. The 3 riders on the team now are in 21st, 28th, and muti-time Baja winner Campbell in 146th. I think it will take Honda a few years to be top 5. And then really tough to beat the KTM's.

My front went 11K with tread left but I went ahead and changed it while I was replacing a fork seal. So far, nothing but good things... BTW, the Shinko warranty does not pro-rate a defective tire, they will simply replace it.

So he is. I was thinking of Barreda Bort, who is on a Husky and was doing pretty well until today.

You'd think that owning Baja would be practice enough to make Honda competitive, but I guess not. On the other hand, KTM sucks in Baja.
