The AMA don't give the penalties it is a World Champs so the FIM referee does.  My guess is they probably had a word to him.  Just because you don't see or hear about a penalty doesn't mean it was ignored.  Really you can't expect the riders to treat any rider differently.  If a footballer goes into a game carrying an injury the opposition will target that player.

I think also Webb's actions will be noted by fans.  Respect is something that is earned.

Do these items give you an unfair advantage or is it just looks, I was going to put a alloy swingarm  on the TT500 is that forbidden as well, first thing I noticed riding a Suzuki 500 2 stroke was a terrible lack of engine braking, very scary on the first corner cheers

If you are using engine braking to slow you down you are risking head shake.  Big 2 strokes have got engine braking just not as much as a 4 stroke trail bike.  The modern 4 stroke MX bikes haven't got a lot of engine braking too.

Where is the problem?  84 model WP USD forks are legal for pre 85 VMX

I dont know about rear disc but if the 84 model  KTM came factory fitted with rear disc then i would naturally think its legal in pre 85. Check MOMS to be sure.

The 84 model KTMs had TLS drum brakes front and rear standard.  The funny thing is the 83 model had a front disc brake.  To my knowledge the first rear disc brake was the Kawasakis in 1986.

Does anyone hire them, it might be more cost effective to hire.  Also how long does a bag of blast sand last?

I want to sandblast and paint the start gates that belong to the Qld MX Subcommittee.

Rocket Rex Staten and Mike "Too Tall" Bell. My first introduction to Supercross at the Brisbane Ekka.

If you are refering to the first Supercross in Australia in 79, it was at Archerfield Speedway and promoted by Blair Sheppard.

Doesn't part of who we get depend on the sponsor brand?

Yes I think whoever the bike sponsor is, is the brand the star attraction/s raced for eg Yamaha Heikki Mikkola and Broc Glover.  Husqvarna Chuck Sun.

So for Roger to be brought out right now it would probably have to be KTM as the sponsor.

The idea has merit, but is unlikely to be adopted by MA.  They do the administration for all Australian Motorcycle Sport, so they are unlikely to set a precedent that they would have to carry over to all disciplines.  Really it is something individual SCBs or even clubs should consider.  I know WA arrange a container every year etc.

Also just because a championship is in your State doesn't mean you aren't travelling a long way to a Championship.  E.g. A rider travelling from Cairns to Brisbane is doing the same distance as Brisbane to Melbourne.

I suggest do some fund raising and maybe ask your SCB to contribute.  MQ will often give a MA Licence as a raffle prize.
