Grab on: The sewn-on strips provide
more traction, but they can also pull
your pants down.
SEAMS ON THE SADDLE Dear MXA, In a previous issue of MXA, I saw a KX450F seat cover that had stitching on the top for extra traction. I can’t seem to find it anywhere. That was a Guts Racing ribbed seat cover. It retails for $59.90 at www.gutsracing.com.
Yellow rose: The rules about yellow
flags differ with organizations.
SHE WORE A YELLOW RIBBON Dear MXA, I plan to start racing this summer. Can I pass another rider when the yellow flag is out? It depends. In AMA Pro racing, passing is allowed when the yellow flag is out. In road racing, passing is not allowed during a waving yellow flag, but passing is allowed under a stationary yellow flag. In motocross, there is no distinction between a waving and stationary flag. Most local tracks do not allow passing under a yellow flag, and the penalty is normally one lap. They will explain the flags at the riders’ meeting.
