Just trying to make sense of it. I hope to test it out sometime this year lol.

By the way, finally watched race at southwick - dangit Tomac had them, but wasnt patient around worst corner to be impatient on lol...so bummed on that comeback.
I think that could be a key as well as the foam. Give it a try. Might work for you.
That tree had it in for the Honda Boys all right. Tomac was coming all right. Bagget was lucky this time I think.

We're working hard to keep our presence on the forums around the internet, but we've been pretty busy since the launch of the bike and many of our other new Metal Mulisha products. I just wanted to make everyone aware that we are always willing to help out and answer questions through our customer service team. You can reach them via our toll free number listed on our web sites. If you need specific questions answered about our bikes or any other Venom/Atomik product, that is the best way to get in touch with us. Thanks again for all the positive feedback on the new bike and all your support! Venom's got your back!

Thanks Simon good to know. Bike is great fun thanks. have been trying to get Andy Bolton to pull his finger out and import these bikes into Australia as I could sell heaps of these every time I go out. Any idea whats happening there as he says he will keep me informed and have heard nothing. Meanwhile no sales. could look at importing them myself if he's not interested.

The North American offices received the entire first shipment of bikes. I know that Andy is working on bringing them in, but beyond that, I know very little. I wish I could tell you that I know more, but unfortunately the Australian office operates completely separate from the U.S. office, so I really don't know where they're at in terms of bringing them in to your area. Andy will be the best person to get that info from but if I hear anything at all I'll be sure to post it here!

Atomik/Jeff, thanks for popping in to say hi. A lot of vmx owners are looking to purchase the upgrade egyro kit. Website has a 'late august' release, so is that still looking like good time? (Chris Nicastro would track the ship as it crosses over with his private submarine, then give us truck location as the boxes drive to your location. haha.)

I know the e-gyros will be here very soon. I'm planning on ordering 6 of them initially. I know there are lots out there with VMX's looking to upgrade!

You guys hogged the first load eh. Ha ha . Thanks for letting me know. I'll tell anyone wanting one now to buy from USA. And when the next lot come from the factory I guess Andy will be in touch. Hopefully it's not too late to sell more. I'll just have to hide my bike for now. Lol.

Our system shows that the eGyro will be in stock the first week of September. I never trust those dates 100% due to shipping variations and customs clearance, but I think that's a pretty realistic time line. I can't wait for you VMX guys to get your hands on the eGyro! It's a game changing device!

Please feel free to pose your questions to me. I'll take them to my customer service team and we'll get you an answer. I do not claim to be any expert on the bike, but my customer service team has a wealth of knowledge and given some time to consult them, I'm sure I can get you guys an answer on most anything concerning the bike.

Not sure if this has been asked yet or not but does the e-gyro lessen run-times?
