get out of the limelight, train in seclusion, get on a bike you're comfortable with whether it's through testing or on a different brand. Head down, work hard, have fun, let the results fall where they may.

Hey wasnt that rocky 4 with Drago the russian, maybe they could make a movie about his comeback, we could get Carl wethers- Appollo Creed to play his dad and james earl jones to be the trainer or "micky"! could be a acadamy award winner. I could see it now - james goes to Nigeria to some desolate african village, meets some african chick with a bone in her nose and falls in love and james earl jones chases him around to train him by poaching elephants with a wooden machete like the kind used in Rawanda and james has to by hand cut off and make little african tribesman figurines out of the ivory tusks so Micky can get more money to go to the local aids ridden brothels to exploit more bone in nose tribeswomen. That could be the squel where "micky gets aids and dies and James has to get the motivation to train on his own.

I will admit that I thought the same thing. I caught myself humming the rocky 4 training song while typing my post.

And you would know what about any of those things?

Please tell us your about your greatest accomplishments and earnings Mr. Amazing, since you've used this same take a couple of times on this forum to slag members recently?

For a guy that collects SSI for a living you sure are critical of others and their career choices

Come to Europe and ride the MX1 World Championship !

On a TM250 Twostroke ! We can use my old faithful VW transporter to get to the races and i will wrench for you. :thumbsup:

After a short period you will become the MPROP (most populer rider of the planet) and you can return to the states with a new motivation to chase MCs record

Sounds like a plan or what ?

I hear Dancing with the stars has an opening. Bust out the sprinkler.

Now that was funny right there..... :thumbsup: Seriously though, remember what got you to the dance in the first place. Hard work, passion and right attitude (it aint the bike!) Find a way to get it back and forget everything else. If you cant find it, do something else before you get really hurt, hurt someone else or just become a big joke (all of which is in danger of happening now)

Honestly I think all the time off he has taken has allowed the feild to surpass him. Maybe the new Yamaha geometry doesnt suite him, but I think its mostly due to his lack of racing year round. If he has a brain at all, he will race outdoors and try to reaquire that speed it takes to be the top guy. Do I think he should move on from JGR? Yep, there has to be part of him asking himself if its the bike and his team at this point. Remove any doubt and move on to a new team. I personally think James rides a bike that is more stable faster than a bike that turns well. He would brake and powerslide every turn on his KX450 back in the day, it didnt matter that the bike wasnt traditionally good at turning. It was really stable, and when he really pushed, the bike rarely pushed back. If he doesnt do outdoors, he will never be on top again. He needs to rebuild some confidence, and sitting at home for 6 months isnt going to get it done.

      I've been in the hospital for two months. During those two months I was bed bound so I didn't move so I got really weak. After that they made me go to physical therapy for 2 and a half weeks. I was discharged two days ago.  I'm a 21 year old male. I was burned 57 percent of my body with 3rd and 2nd degree burns on both my legs, my back, butt, and right arm. Mainly the back of the areas are burned but the front isn't as bad as the back. Anyways, I had to learn how to walk again and as I see my progress, I can't help but wonder will I ever be able to ride again? My strength is coming back slowly but I still feel stiff and very weak. Has anyone else on this board gone through this? I would hate to give up on riding due to this. No smart ass comments please and no rude answers. Thank you!

      I have a Honda crf50f and its been sitting for 6 years. I just got a new carburetor and it's now running, only 1 problem. It wont idle when the choke is on or up position, it will only idle if choke is in the down or off position. Any help on what it could be? Thanks.

      Product Spotlight: Alpinestars Tech 7 Boots
      These days expensive protective equipment saturate the market, but Alpinestars has a motocross boot that offers high dollar protection with high end quality at the average man’s price.  I have worn the Sidi Crossfire 2, Garne SG-10, SG-12, and Alpinestars Tech 10 boots.  While these top-line boots all share impressive features my favorite is the Alpinestars Tech 7, with the low retail price of $349.  Once Western Power Sports became a distributor for Alpinestars I immediately tested the Tech 10 against the Tech 7 boots.  
      My initial thought was I would prefer the highest priced boot, the Tech 10.  While this boot is amazing, I felt like I could literally jump off the roof and have no ankle injuries (not recommended), I struggled with the lack of flexibility.  I am 6’4” and have suffered many foot and ankle injuries throughout the years, the most recent was a ruptured Achilles’ tendon.  I tend to look for boots that offer support and protection, yet allow me the freedom to ride comfortably and the Tech 7 meets this criteria.  If I was riding AMA Supercross I would opt for the Tech 10, but for me and my Vet B riding level the Tech 7 is heaven on my feet! 
      Look for both the Tech 7 and Tech 10 boots available in the TT store.   https://www.thumpertalk.com/shop/cart.php?m=search_results&c=&catID=4443&v=&id=&venID=&attrList=&manuf=1602&priceFilter=&sortBy=PriceHiLo&search=Tech+7&sort=5&asc=desc&page=2

      Long-time Yamaha 4-stroke  rider/owner/racer...currently ride a new YZ 250 smoker.  We all know about the perceptions and realities of the backwards motor/new chassis that Yamaha has offered since 2010.  I have ridden the 2013 and current bike (2015) at demo days and like them just fine.  Strong motor, all the other Yamaha attributes, and serviceable MX bike for sure.  However, the bike has suffered a lot of not-so-good press.  We know the bike is wide at the radiators, heavy-feeling, and a large-ish 450.  I owned the 2013 YZ 250F and I know that this chassis handled great.  My question here is this.....what if Yamaha simply fuel-injected the 2006-2009 motor, tweaked it to brink it in line with power levels needed today, and stuck it into the 2010-2013, and newer, chassis that mimicked the fine 250F chassis?  Would they have had a class-winner on their hands?  Would it be fast enough?  Would it have sold better?  What do you guys think?
