Thanks for the assist of all we do right here and we’ll carry on preserving on in case you guys maintain caring.

Most Learn Tales on for 2022

As at all times, a caveat right here in that posts from years aside from the present ones at all times infiltrate the highest tales in a 12 months, it’s timeless stuff like Tony Blazier’s The Bikes That Modified Motocross Checklist or Worst Bikes Ever or the Historical past of Honda CR’s or his Maxxis Basic Metal on a motorbike that everybody loves, the 1996 CR250.

These “Historical past of” articles are at all times a few of the hottest ones I write they usually make it onto the highest ten yearly. A couple of years again, we began to give attention to “new” content material for this record, however they proceed to be a few of the most clicked articles on the location. I see the identical factor on my YouTube channel the place the “Historical past of” movies are perennially my most-watched content material as nicely. Whereas I might like to assume it is because of my enthralling prose, I imagine their enduring recognition is generally on account of how they rank in Google searches.

Many Pulp followers come to wanting particularly for Keefer’s perception on a motorbike or one in every of my Basic Steels articles, however I feel many others unfamiliar with our website discover their manner there as a result of they only occur to seek for one thing on Google and one in every of my articles pops up. No matter how they discovered us, I hope that they bookmark the location and are available again to learn all the opposite nice stuff we now have there. Historical past articles and massively widespread bikes just like the 1996 CR250R are simply the kinds of issues that tickle Google’s algorithm and I’m glad we profit with a number of additional clicks yearly.-Blazier

However we’re doing this JUST for 2022 and so away we go!

Not surprising {that a} two stroke article made the highest spot, however I’ll admit this bike deserves it! I dislike two strokes in comparison with most folk, however this bike is UNREAL! You may experience it like a 4 stroke and also you’re fantastic! WHAT?! I nonetheless have this bike and am using it this week, so two stroke lovers UNITE! – Keefer

I’m somewhat shocked {that a} story I put out this late within the 12 months ranked this excessive however individuals love lists they usually love a sneak peek behind the scenes like this. Is it an ideal record? Hell, no however I attempted the most effective I might and ran this by 6-8 shut trade individuals as nicely to get their ideas. I had some pushback for some individuals on this record and others thought that my excluding those who don’t solely work on SX/MX, like Todd Jendro at Feld, wasn’t proper as a result of finally, Todd has a ton of energy. I don’t know, like all lists it acquired the talk going and acquired it because the #2 story of the 12 months on so I did one thing proper!- Matthes

There isn’t quite a bit that must be carried out to this bike, however I really like going by way of the entire fashions and fascinated by the common client to discover a comfy baseline setting! Shocked this text is that far up on the record! – Keefer


I’m shocked that this isn’t quantity two! The 23 YZ450F is probably the most anticipated bike of the New 12 months so having this text quantity 4 is bizarre. You want 250s greater than 450s eh? The brand new Yamaha wants extra consideration than the older model however it is possible for you to to learn that article in 2023 proper right here on Pulp! – Keefer

WOW! Quantity 5?! STOP IT! This text wanted to be on the rostrum! There are some good nuggets on this sucker!- Keefer

By Tony Blazier

This was my 11th 12 months writing for PulpMX and I need to as soon as once more thank Steve for permitting me to be part of the PulpMX household and all of you on the market for studying the articles I write. Whereas it pains me that Keefer has one way or the other managed to smoke me as soon as once more, I’m proud to be a part of such an amazing group of fellow moto heads.  As to this explicit article, I used to be not shocked to see it on the record this 12 months. In many individuals’s minds (together with mine) the 1989 Hondas have been the epitome of Massive Purple’s eighties awesomeness and nonetheless rank as a few of the most lovely machines they’ve ever produced. The ’89 CR250R might have been cursed with the worst inventory forks in motocross historical past however rattling was she quick and other people nonetheless like to race and restore them to this present day. I feel each its enduring recognition as a traditional racer and the seemingly unquenchable curiosity individuals have in traditional Hondas simply account for its rating on this record. – Blazier

By Keefer

Randy Richardson and I did some testing on this stuff early of their life and to me they’re a greater Michelin tire. – Keefer

by Tony Blazier

One other instance of 80s awesomeness, the 1986 YZ250 was much like the 1989 CR250R in that each bikes have been quick as stink and each bikes had forks that will rattle your fillings out of your tooth. I at all times liked the appears of those bikes as nicely, however they aren’t fairly up there on the supermodel scale with the ’89 CRs. These bikes have been fairly widespread again in 1986, however I don’t assume there are as a lot of them operating round now because the extra ubiquitous Hondas. That makes them extra of a curiosity to many who keep in mind them however haven’t seen one in a very long time. These eighties bike articles at all times appear to do nicely and when you’ve gotten a motorbike that individuals keep in mind fondly like these YZs it appears to translate into extra clicks for the PulpMX empire.- Blazier

Daytime made it within the TOP TEN STEVE! SUCK IT! – Keefer

Prime Steve Matthes Exhibits of 2022

A caveat right here as nicely, the weekly race critiques that I do with JT and Weege (principally them) outrank a lot of the one on one exhibits I achieve this these aren’t ranked right here however individuals do actually like listening to us debate the weekly SX or MX. With that stated, listed here are probably the most listened to 1 on one exhibits of 2022.

#1- Jordan Burns Soundcheck
Depend me as shocked this one topped the charts, we talked about our favourite moto video songs so doing this was an actual flashback to the 90’s for certain. Jordan is aware of quite a bit about these things from being in his personal band and mates with nearly all of the bands we performed right here. Enjoyable present for certain, #1 within the 12 months although? Who knew!

A lot of individuals curious in regards to the new WSX sequence so having two of the primary guys behind the sequence months earlier than it kicked off acquired a whole lot of listens!

Individuals like Chad Reed, he’s a great interview and I hadn’t had him on a present shortly. And he was coming again to racing within the WSX! All of that added as much as a whole lot of curiosity from you guys.

Three in a single right here as I contact base with tremendous agent Mirtl to speak about, what else, the WSX, repping the Lawrence brothers and extra. The second a part of this present was my response to listening to about a few ex-racers actually struggling on the market. Two nice riders that “made it” are Broc Glover and Tallon Vohland. They found that life after racing is hard, studying new abilities is hard and I needed to search out out what they did to achieve success in “actual life” after the applause stops.

A Privateer Island Pod, I talked to Breece proper after A1 about the place the hell he’s been, racing horses round barrels, his previous rides w HEP and others. It was fairly humorous and an authentic interview. You guys appreciated it as nicely.

I used to be stoked this one made the record, perhaps my favourite podcast I did all 12 months. Kenny was a low-key tremendous influential man within the hey days of the 80’s and 90’s. A designer of some iconic merchandise working for AXO, Alpinestars and extra, Kenny was an amazing storyteller as nicely.

Frank was an excellent racer within the 80’s that was trapped within the days the place solely eight riders or no matter actually made cash. So he was privateering it for some time and getting some actual good outcomes earlier than hanging it as much as have a profession within the trade.

Tons of newness with this one the place Craig talks about his new experience on Husky and Brooks talks about his new job at HEP.

Why Marsh? I don’t know!

The proprietor of Stark Bikes talks about the way it’s going, the event of the bike and extra.


#1- Present 500
I man, duh. Wonderful present, wonderful time. I can’t imagine I acquired RC and MC to come back to Vegas and hang around with us.

#2- Present #504

Having Webb in-studio was fairly cool for certain and he acquired higher as we went on. Having Rarick and Phil right here as nicely made it even higher as all of them busted every others balls for hours.

#3- Present #494
