The June 2014 issue of MXA includes a Broc Tickle interview, Mountain Horse snow machine test, a piece on Giuseppe Luongo’s Flyaway races, a YZ125 two-stroke project bike and a YZ250F four-stroke project bike and a cool shootout between the winner of the 2014 MXA 450 Shootout and the loser.
Jody has only ever allowed one of his columns to appear on the MXA website. It was the famous “My Father Never Saw Me Race.” This month he said we could run his June 2014 column, but only for a couple days. Why? Because he wanted his buddy Lars Larsson to be able to read it while he is Sweden.
Do you love your bike? Would you do anything for it? Is it spoiled? John Basher writes a love letter to his 2014 Yamaha YZ125.
What would happen if you did a special shootout between the winner of the 2014 MXA 450 Shootout, the KX450F, and the loser, the CRF450? Since MXA spent almost seven months living with all of the 450s (racing, testing, modifying, sound testing and running them on the dyno), we already know which one won—but what if we took a second look at both bikes with a more philosophical mind—and not just the analytical racer’s approach.
Why Flyaway? Who benefits from going to Qatar, Thailand, Brazil and Mexico? Do you know why the GP riders have to fly to places with very few, if any spectators, bad gas and scary food? Find out inside.
How cool looking can a motocross bike be? Although MXA’s YZ250F had beaucoup money spent on hopping it up, we could have just stopped at the yellow plastic.

What do MXA test riders do for fun? Daryl Ecklund demonstrates on his day off.
The MXA wrecking crew went to the ends of the Earth to ride at 12,000 feet in the mountains of Idaho. It’s not where we rode, but what we rode that really matters.
Not every product is a winner. The MXA wrecking crew looks at each one with a discerning eye. This month we test the Dunlop Geomax MX32, Triga iBoost throttle body, Galfer Tsumani brake, Nuetech Gen 2.0 Tubliss, AXO A2 boot and the Works Connection KTM stem nut.
