10535633_10152319683592087_4359389991834915554_oThis year was my first year being sponsored by Spider Graphix. I’ve come a long ways from a couple of well-placed stickers on my 250R plastics and have tried many different companies. I didn’t know what to expect from Spider, but they have a lot of riders back East as well as a few names out West.

Firstly, their staff is super friendly. It’s nice to be greeted pleasantly on the phone, instead of some shops that are always “too busy” to be pleasant to you. You won’t find that here.

Secondly, I sent a sponsor list and some general requirements over to them, and the turnaround on my proof was SUPER fast. It was so nice to have something to look at so quickly! It made the process that much easier.

Powermadd Handguards

Posted by Q75 admin on Thursday Aug 28, 2014 Under 2014, News, Review

If you’ve never tried a set of Powermadd handguards I recommend that you do. I’ve used them for years because of their great coverage, great accessories, and great features, plus they look good on every machine. That’s a combination that is tough if not impossible to beat.

Lots of colors to choose.

My setup has pretty typically been a set of Powermadd Star series handguards with the wrap around kit. The wrap around kit helps ensure that your handguards are in place no matter what happens or what hits them. A useful addition to any type of riding, even though they are designed for XC in the woods. Additionally, Powermadd has some great color combos on their Star series. I’ve usually had a set of black/blue or black/orange handguards because my current bikes and longest running color scheme has been orange and blue. They do have black and white, red and white, Suzuki Yellow, Honda red, etc. You have plenty of options to choose from to match your current bike. Read More

First Race Back!

Posted by Q75 admin on Friday Feb 28, 2014 Under 2014, News, Other Racing

EWDRA_14Spring80It has been over a year since I’ve raced. Being completely overwhelmed at work, getting married, then finding out we’re expecting a baby, and still being completely overwhelmed at work made it nearly impossible to race last year. Combine that with some circumstances outside my control and it made for a tough 2013! I spent a lot of time mountain biking with my wife when I could, but it just isn’t the same! So, needless to say, I felt so much better on Sunday finally being able to get to pound out some laps on some rough terrain at the Eastern Washington Dirt Riders’ Spring Hare Scramble.

I am very grateful to my longtime sponsors and a few new ones that have offered support this year! It made getting back into racing much easier for me. This winter I took my motor to Arlan Lehrman of LED Performance for a tune-up. Arlan was my longtime motor guy when I was racing WORCS. He does an incredible job on everything from vintage motorcycles to ATVs. He has been building motors since the early days of ATV racing and if you spend just a few minutes talking to him you’ll know more than you ever wanted to about the intricacies, art and science of getting power out of a motor! He’s part of the reason I never had a DNF the entire time I raced WORCS (from 2003-2008). When I got the motor back I was confident in it and upon firing it up and riding it around the yard a little I was not disappointed. I use Wiseco pistons, HMF exhaust, Sunstar sprockets, K&N Filters and a Rekluse EXP Core manual clutch to get the power out as well. I have always had great results with this products and Rekluse has some new MX clutches coming out this year that will amaze you. Read More
