  1. New Trailer Setup- Weight and Balance

    Now that wouldn't be the first time we did that I'm not a trailer expert by any chance, so do go by PitBull & you father-in-law recommends. I switched from open trailer (~7', only had bikes on it) to a closed van in '05 which made any concerns pretty moot for me.
  2. New Trailer Setup- Weight and Balance

    Jaybird, I trust you've seen this demo of right vs wrong weight distribution on a trailer (it's been widely copied around on sites): From this, I'd put the bikes as close to the front as possible.
  3. Outgrow stock suspension???

    My first question: what's the mileage on that shock? - It appears that most OEM shocks are not designed to last much longer than 20-25K miles, before the damping oil has deteriorated so much that there is no damping left. One option is to get a used aftermarket shock that can be renovated (and tuned to your weight/riding style). If it was an old bike this might have been your only option for upgrading the shock, as many aftermarket companies stop producing for older generations. Most aftermarket shocks (Öhlins, Penske, WP etc) can be renovated for USD100-150. I'm not in the US, so I'm not sure of the cost.
  4. New Schuberth lid

    The SR2 is only getting 3 out of 5 stars https://sharp.dft.gov.uk/helmets/schuberth-sr2/ The highest scoring Schuberth's are the C2 and SR1 with 4/5 stars.
  5. It must have been quite an down & up weekend for Joe. He qualified at the very back of the grid. The race was red-flagged after 7 laps due to track conditions and restarted for 6 laps as a wet race. That was ... a bit chaotic. Joe did very well in the wet race to score a 10th place and racking up 6 points in the championship.
  6. Brembo stuff

    The riders use the rear brake to limit the wheelieing. Having 270bhp 'on tap' does that to you.
  7. New from DC/ AZ

    Book your plance at CodeRACE early - the spots tend to sell out very quickly.
  8. AGR Moto2 is replacing Columbian Yonny Hernandez with Joe Roberts. Full story at: http://www.crash.net/motogp/news/283316/1/yonny-hernandez-out-at-agr-roberts-in.html
  9. Can Quick Turn Be Overdone?

    Dave Moss posted a discussion on his facebook profile of Maverick's crash along with 4 pictures. On one of them, it looks like the rear wheel has come off the ground. The asphalt is crowned right there (as normal roads are) and going over the crowning and changing direction at the same time could have caused the crash.

    Dang, sorry to hear that for Elena.
  11. Women In Wsbk Racing

    No. Maria Herrera is competing in the Moto3 class (the smallest). In 2015, Ana Carrasco competed in Moto3 as well.
  12. Old Timer back to forum

    Welcome back, Fossil. There are still some of the old (other) fossils hanging out here, although I'm not as active as I used to be.
  13. Accidents like this one, were a busted engine leaks oil across a large piece of the track is pretty rare. They said during the broadcast that this has been discussed before and was likely to be brought up again due to this incident. For me, it doesn't make sense to make a pretty sweeping rule change which only helps once in a blue moon. As an example, a "down and you're out for the race" rule wouldn't have stopped the carnage at last year's Moto3 race at Philip Island, where John McPhee got run over by another rider and punctured his lungs (I think it was both).
  14. Maverick's riding style disected

    I went back and found the scene in Faster - Scene 15, "Rossi & Biaggi Pt 2". Doctor Costa says that Rossi's max HR is 125bpm and the max for Biaggi is 170bpm.
