    BFG T/A KM2 for Class 10

    Is anyone having success with the DOT version of the BFG T/A KM2 in Class 10 in a 33 x 10.5 x 15 versus the tried and true BFG Baja T/A. It's a little bit lighter at 50.7 lbs and obviously uses a different tread block. I suspect that the Baja T/A has a stronger sidewall, but you can buy the...

    Thumbnails won't open in Firefox

    I use the latest version of Firefox on my home and work computers (14.0.1) and thumbnails no longer open properly. Firefox asks you what program you want to use, and no matter what graphics program I choose seems to crash the page. Is there a work around for this?

    The quoted section below was posted today in Cycle News. I imagine KTM isn't going to be too happy about this considering their investment in this class and their domination for the last few years. This will really level the playing field as far as the bikes are concerned. I anxious to talk...
