    I haven't tasted bark since about 1984 when I broke the chin bar on a Shoei helmet and woke up after dark. That one really hurt me.

    My long standing record is partly because the last tree I hit was the horizontal part of a live oak. So my over the bars trip cleared wood.

    Roof a fellow fat, 48-year-old at a volleyball tournament? Meh...

    Roof a 6'-6" 25-year-old, flat-belly? Beer me.

    There are “whiners” and dherr arr competitorezzzz. I’m the latter. Bean #1 ain’t shit if 95% of the whirrrrrr guiezzzz can beet you’re azz. Fight in your division or go buy the trophy on eBay and gtfo o mie weighs.

    A friend this spring was going off about the assholes in his race, some not in his class blocking, fighting, cursing, knocked him over and after the checkers screaming matches in the pits. This in +50 HS A class.

    Then he adds at the end, “you should race the next event”!

    Ummmmm, those are the reesonzzz I don’t race anymore. Now EYE set my schedule, my course, my pace and only deel with people I like. If it was full of cool people who just ride hard I’d think about it but know thank ewe. I’m beyond that bullsnap.

    I agree with this whole heartedly. That's why I don't give a damn about how someone finished in their class, only the overall.

    No. I think the reality of a GG 4T is too far out in the distance for me.

    Most likely Yamaha or Honda. We'll see when the time comes. Depends on what my ride season looks like for me next year. If I'm leaning racing, wr250f. If I'm leaning all rounder 450L and maybe swap the TSE for a YZ125 to keep my 2T ringading alive. We'll see. I should be putting the $ elsewhere....but well, I got a moto problem. :lol3

    Does a 350 just check too many boxes? One too many, like you've had one before?

    I'd entertain the idea of a 250EXC. Don't know why, but aside from YZ125's, I am not the type to get the same bike again. I guess that doesn't jive with a wr450f as I had an old carbd\steel frame one. :dunno
