I Wanna Ride

A lot of water has passed under the bridge since my last post.  So many things have happened on this planet... huge events have occurred over the last few months, incidents of such magnitude that the goings-on of our tiny world of professional motocross absolutely pale in comparison.   Races were held, trophies were won, points were gathered and internet arguments sputtered on, and I could not be bothered to write one word about nor cut and paste a single photograph of any of it.  Perhaps I was suffering from an oversupply of perspective, or maybe a lack of same.

Thankfully, I happened across this change-up from Transworld Motocross:  the 2011 KTM two-stroke lineup.  Racing motorcycles on dirt is supposed to be fun, even therapeutic in its own way, and lightweight, lightly-powered two-stroke motorcycles are the funnest of all.  While there may be a decent argument to be made against carbon-based fuel-burning forms of entertainment, you won't hear it at any motocross track.
