Dave Clark Racing

Hi All,

For anyone in the UK I can recommend Dave Clark.

I'm new to mx and went along for a little advice and to buy some gear. Got there and found the place a hive of activity, mostly punters "shooting the breeze" I believe the phrase is
Chatted to one of the spanner boys and got a whole heap of tech info. and Dave was great. Good advice and cheap gear.
I like this mx thing already and Husaberg in particular.
Give the fella a look if you've got the time.

Tell Dave we'll pay a visit to him when he pays a visit to us, and not an employee like last time, we need the real deal

thanks,

I'm not sure if this is the right translation for "punters", but, over here in the colonies we call them "Posers"

hi dale

a punter used to be a person that betted on the horses and then became the slang for anyone there to buy the goods.

a poseur here as the same as over your way. i believe there is though a slight difference., a poseur here WAS someone who vainly tried to look good but i think a poseur nowadays is someone of no action so you would say "do you think he intends to buy that bike?", "no he's a poseur!".

the languase continues to evolve!

regards

Taffy

Hi Taffy,

First of all, thanks for the clarification. I find my motherlands' slang to be fascinating.

I believe the first time I saw poser in print over here was in Moto Cross Action (MXA) magazine. My take on it was someone who has the latest and greatest bike, with all the aftermarket stuff, but, either wasn't much of a competitor, or wasn't all. A Wannabe. Mostly one would find this type in and around moto cross tracks, "hanging out". I suppose that would be b/c there are way more girls at the tracks than say out in the desert.

MXA is an "interesting magazine" to say the least. IMHO, they are arrogant at the least, but, they do rally against the AMA and the promoters in favor of the privateers. In MXA, one can find advertised all of the latest gadgets and heavily biased "comparison" articles.

my mind is putty

heya Gix,

I can't remember the name of the gentleman, but a couple of years ago, a dealer in the UK was raising holy hell, posting under fake names, etc. about how crappy DCR was. before he got banned, he had posted about his perception on Dave and his crew. A gentleman registered under "IWorkForDaveClark" or something like that to defend Dave's honor.

If I could remember the weiner who registered to post the crap, I could find the thread, but it's really unimportant. The wanker in question later moved to Aus. and started selling WP suspension I believe.

Anyways, really long story short, that's been this site's only dealings with DCR, and if I remember correctly, the user didn't even post! Dave probably told him to cool it as this guy was a complete asshole, and nothing DCR said would have done anything other than drag a sad smear campaign out longer.

thanks,

dipsy doodle.

well, the guy was an asshole, and after that deal, I wouldn't blame DCR for not wanting to pop their heads up.

I ended up having to ban him, then he sent me about 10 emails a day stating censorchip issues, and telling me that he was going to go to all the motorcycle forums and post what a dictator I was.

So I blocked his email

thanks,
