Diablo Mx Ranch with my OTHG race friends.

There were probably a hundred bikes in my practice...good times! My friend Roland had a high-side and hit pretty hard.

Howdy SimHQ folks!

I'm curious and wanted to ask a question.

I've noticed my thread here is closing in on 57,000 views. I know this isn't really the type of site where a motocross thread belongs, but I've been keeping it updated as a sort of "diary" of my attempt at riding/racing motocross. So I would venture a guess that 99% of the 57k views are from search spiders or bots of some kind?

If any SimHQ members have been following this thread...can you reply with a simple "S!" or something? I would guess there's probably 5 or less...lol

Thanks! salute

No interest in motorcycles (although I've ridden, street and dirt...assuming it's still 1 down and 4 up with a left-handled clutch?), but I follow your thread. If for any reason, just to see what an old man my age will risk and can accomplish (same with Dart's thread). smile



The rusty wire that holds the cork that keeps the anger in
Gives way and suddenly it’s day again
The sun is in the east
Even though the day is done
Two suns in the sunset, hmph
Could be the human race is run

Ah Ha! So you're the one! lol

I guess "old man" is pretty subjective to the sport you're talking about. I'm 52 and for motocross...I'm friggin old. Not sure how long my body will take it before it says "no more". Now...if I was taking up golf...I'd probably be the new young whipper snapper on the course.

Thanks for responding Mark!

I really applaud you for doing this. It is important to have passions throughout your life.


I watched that 3 times and missed the yellow flag every time.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

I appreciate that a lot OG...thank you!

I might have been misleading with the text in the vid...the flag comes after the text I put in. You can kinda see the stick in the far left of the thumbnail.

My wife isn't a fan of the hobby unfortunately, not something many 52 year old husbands decide they're gonna do out of the blue I guess...lol. My body has been preserved pretty good cause I've
never really done anything remotely as punishing as this...I've been lucky and feel pretty alive out there for sure!

Cheers!

My buddy Kelly shattered both his heels in a crash 2 days after this ride. We had a good time on this day though.

Took my 05 Husky to the motocross track...kickstand and all! Sure...she's 16lbs heavier than my Honda...but she makes up for it by having 8 less horsepower. thumbsup
