link to Rick Johnsons article on this
This is the one that every one was looking forward to / or feared. Remember the atv segment they did years ago. This could go either way.

Not bad, but short. Mostly Kenny Bartram and freestyle, short quotes from Mcgrath and Carmichael. No damage done.

BUT, I share the same feelings you have: No damage to the image and surely no positive perception was developed for our sport.
Too bad. I tought the things had changed from the late 70"s. That is when I started riding. We were perceived as "near crazy", and it has'nt changed. We only have better protective equipement.
Anyway, I think I'll look for the movie "on any sunday". That will cheer me up.
By the way do any of you know where to get <dirt bike movie> ?

My response: "I will not go quietly into that deep dark night, but I will rage...rage against the dying of the light!"

growing old gracefully
I'm growing old gracefully .
I went back to riding dirt bike last year. If I don't count my BMW/7 ,my BSA Lightning and the 82 Virago 750 sitting in the garage for my oldest son (he's 15). My wr 426 2002 is my 11th or 12th bike dedicated to dirt riding. And I love it. I wonder why I stopped riding from 1983 to last year. May be the sense of responsability and the duty for raising a family got to me .
But now my kids are growing up and I feel I might not have the capacity to keep riding that beast when I'll get to the fifties. That's why I ride like it may be my last ride each time I crank it up.
Never know what life has in store for you!
One thing has changed, I use all the protective gear available. I may look like robocop but, it hurts less when I hit the ground and bounce around .
Keep riding no matter what !
