    its really silly if you have changed the defaults so that you have more than the standard number of messages per page, then the page count is way different :D

    Nice lookin' ride Ed! Congrats. Now you are ready to ride some of those HARD enduro races we all see on video. Too bad you had to defect to the 2S side, but I'm sure you are going to love it.

    Great video Darius. I was impressed, pullin the holeshot and then the change of view! I was dying laughing! Still, a holeshot is a holeshot. The " official " passing technique in the NETRA handbook is to yell " Trail " when coming up behind a slower rider. Although " Hey Hey " seemed to work.
