Anyway - I raced 150mi in the Jack Pine Enduro this year with my Kickstand. Never once through all that thick crap did it get in the way or get hung up on something. Next time tell that rubberhead that you use it to beat guys like him over the head with it.

Thats one of the reasons I like running the GNCC Circuit...The tech inspection normally takes care of that...

You on the other hand appear to be one of thos "I don't give a crap...I paid my money I'll do what the hell I want...Kind of riders that the rest of us must constantly be on the look out for.
What else you got......

I don't have a kickstand, don't need one.
Don't worry about having to look out for me, you would have to catch me in order to look out for me.
Besides, I never referred to any "protrusions" in the first place, just about "limited ability" riders.
But, in agreement, if someone has a kickstand sticking that far out, they need to remove it. I personally have never seen one like that. The ones I have seen tuck up nicely under the number plate and are restrained with a rubber loop. If your're getting your leg or whatever torn up by that, then you're gonna have to require the guy to remove his swingarm, sprocket, chain, footpegs and tire so you can get by unscathed.

I never ran one when I did enduros. Just one more thing to fall off and keep tight.
Plus, if everyone is so worried about the weight of the bike when racing, they shouldn't carry around components they don't need anyway.

Additionally, For the record I said "Limited Experience" Not "Limited Ability"......Racing is a completely different ballgame than being the "Man" when out play riding with your buddies.....You can be the baddest dude in your group and have your butt handed to you when you mix 50 guys who have real race experience and feed off the adrenalin rather be overwhelmed by it.

Sorry to hear about your herpes, I'm sure that has to be embarrasing and difficult to explain to your partner.

It's kind of like when you bite the bullet and run a quiet exhaust for the sake of the land use battle. You know you are doing the right thing. Others may not see it that way and even if you might resect their right to a different opinion, it can still piss you off when you hear a very loud bike. I tried various things to quiet my bike down and currently am back to a loud exhaust. I get a lot of comments from those who think differently and while I respect their opinion, I have to make my own choices. Eventually, I will figure something else out after I get tired of getting enough flack about it, I guess.

Ooooohhhh, good shot.....
You're probably right, your grammatical skills make your posts somewhat difficult to decipher.
Nonetheless, don't get your panties all wadded up, knowing that you race, I kind of thought maybe you enjoy a good "electronic bar check".

By the way I also race the "A" class in district 15 & 14 enduro's and do some moto once in a while. I can see by your sig line you race the morning "C" class at the GNCC. I have lots of friends that just trail ride and they have cleaned my clock before, so just because you choose to race, doesn't make you an expert in the sport.
Furthermore I know of more than a few young ladies who race the morning class along with several mini riders that usually get in the top 10 morning "C" class. So you should step down off your IRON HORSE and quit being so darned arrogant. Which also means they would probably out perform you.
Nobody likes "A legend in their own mind".
