Best Mod for under $2.

Foam doughnuts for your grips. They save your thumb from getting rubbed raw. Most bicycle shops with BMX bikes will have them.

What you could also do for $1.99...

Laxatives... save up to 5lbs of rider weight before each race... cheaper than the titanium subframe... :) :D

Hallmark card for the wife for when you get home to thank her for letting you ride that day :D

That is where the saying "YamahaThumb" came from. Yamaha's came w/ an AWFUL handlebar bend!!

I used the Donuts for YEARS and YEARS and YEARS and on and on and on, and he told two friends and they told two friends, etc, etc...

I used to use BMX donuts, but they are too small IMO. What I did to fix the problem was trace the BMX donut onto a koozie (Im sure EGO has plenty Koozies around his house LOL) and made the radius about 3/4" bigger all around. Now I have custom "motoman393 donuts" LOL

ratbiker -

Nah I disagree should be only 5 points for rear wheel slider. Now 10 point maybe for a nice HighSider, would've been more entertaining.

Shows us your best HighSide routine EGO? :) :D

Lust Or Love

Loop out looser

lots of lumps

BTW

I wish I had a helmet cam, that same TT track has a wide hanging sweeper, there is a 8" berm setup, all along the outer edge "NORMALLY". They had a vintage TT that weekend so I go out on it on Monday.

I hit the sweep totally side ways and locked, looking for the Berm, Uh Berm, Ohhhh Beeerrrrmmm

Oh gad this is gonna hurt, Right off the side into the weeds. I just slammed right into the tallest-fullest bush. Now that would have been a funny video....
