    MHSC B Class Champ - TEAM BETA
    One of our local riders has had a ton of success this year on his Beta! Below, Jared Cheatham talks about his stellar year. "Hello, I’m Jared Cheatham, I’m 25 years old and been riding dirt bikes since I was 7, but just started racing in 2016. I generally rode Yamaha’s all my life.  I started from the little ole PW80 to a trusty little (Honda) XR80, to a mean zippy little yz 85. That thing was a rocket, kudos to all you little kids that race them bad boys! I then made a huge step to a yz250

    Gobbler Getter National Enduro
    Final round of NEPG took place in Stanton, AL. I have never ridden in Alabama but had heard it to be sandy, big whoops, and be aware of wet red clay in corners. A little over an inch of rain earlier in the week made conditions AMAZING! I mean, the dirt was PRIMO!!!! The first two tests were 8 miles each and brutal! 3 ft whoops to very tight trees was very demanding and kept my heart rate high. I could not find a flow through the whoops. I was really hoping all the tests would not be this bad.

    Hillbilly GP - Lu's Place
    My dad and I raced the last round of NEPG last weekend but Wyatt decided to hit up the opening round of the HBGP. Sunday was a cool, cloudy day and overnight rain made conditions wet. The field had standing water and scoring lane got a little soupy. Late fall-winter racing requires riders to “Hillbilly Up”! Wyatt’s Race Report: “14 Pros on the starting line. I was about mid pack off the line. The trail was muddy but still fast and fun as always. My favorite section was the creek, I could blast

    Wrench Tip Wednesday: Dirt Bike Diary
    Do you write a diary about your dirt bike? If not, you should and not just write about how much you love your bike. You need to track stuff, regarding hours, conditions of what you are riding, work done to the bike, etc..? Some riders tend to wait until something fails on their bike before fixing it. Wouldn’t it suck to pull up to the start and all of sudden your clutch does not work… Something to ponder on How many legitimate hours are on your bike? The only accurate way to know is to use a

    Alabama or Bust
    I musta got on Tech Tip Tayler's last nerve Wednesday.  I first thought I was going to get a bubble bath when she was waving the scrub brush at me. I got super excited & was doing my happy dance when it all unfolded.  The scrub brush hit the ground and she began saying Tech Tip words I did NOT understand. Words that Google probably couldn't even help me with.  Anyways, she had me all wrapped up before I even knew she was in reach.  Needless to say, I am banned from being in the vacinity

    Wrench Tip Wednesday: Dirty Bike = NO GOOD
    A clean bike is a happy bike. I get extremely bent out of shape if my bike is dirty for long. Washing bikes is tedious work and I personally do not enjoy it but I can’t stress the importance of it enough. When the dirt bike is clean, it is easier to inspect damage and work on. What is your opinion, is it a good idea to have dirt clumps falling inside the engine or reservoir's? How I wash my bike varies on the scenario. It depends on if it was a mudder, what needs worked on, or just needs

    Chillin' at the Body Shop
    Nobody has called to let me join them on vacation, so I hung out at the body shop all week.  I tried not to get in the way, but that's hard. Not only am I curious, but I am also vertically challenged.     I watched Dennis do some fabricating on a semi hood.  He tried getting me to help, but I told him these wings were not made for work.      Wyatt had a business trip this week, so of course when I figured out his repair shop was unattended, I helped myself.  He hasn't jumped on the

    Wrench Tip Wednesday: Spark Plugs
    Alright, lets show up to a race or play ride day with a bike not wanting to start. Kick and kick, no fire. By the time you start thinking about what is wrong with the bike, you are already physically exhausted. Majority of the time, it is the spark plug. How important is a spark plug to a dirt bike? A lot of people say they have never fouled one so they do not check or replace it. It all comes down to personal preference on preventative maintenance but realistically it is one of the cheapest

    Solo Ride
    Fantastic weekend! No racing for me meant the perfect time to get the 2018 dialed in for Alabama in a few weeks. Beautiful weather, primo dirt, and by far one of the most enjoyable times riding by myself. Once my breakfast settled Saturday, I geared up. I did not really have any plans to work on anything specific, just wanted to be on the bike. After I finished my AM ride, I took some time to reflect on what I could do better. The first thing that came to mind was FOCUS. I really needed to be
