Comment on the posts you like or don’t like so that we know what kinds of things you’d like to see!

    I love everything you guys are doing! Seeing behind the scenes and inside the sport is awesome! I’d be super pumped to win Eli’s helmet. Keep up the great work 👍

  2. Brett Bergstrom May 28, 2019

    Great to have a new media outlet, makes it a lot easier especially when you outside the USA trying to follow news, stories and more behind the scenes stuff, that you don’t get to see on mav or NBC gold here in South Africa. Plus see some of the lasresr products and reviews from a new aspect. You never know maybe one day I’ll be working for swap moto just an idea. Thanks for the new great media outlet wish you all great success

  3. Brett Bergstrom May 28, 2019

    Would be awesome to have a piece of history like ET3 HELMET here in South Africa.

  4. Danny Fisher May 28, 2019

  9. Sam May 28, 2019

  11. Jeff Peters May 28, 2019

    So far I’m loving the site, the style is badass and the content is what is expected from the legendary swap crew. Glad to have more more outlet to feed my moto addiction.

  12. Ivan Balderas May 28, 2019

  13. Dominik Wywrot May 28, 2019

    This is very awesome that you guys are giving doing this giveaway.

  14. Phil Lambert May 28, 2019

    Been here since the inception of TW and love what SWML is now!! Don’t change a thing!

  15. Phil Lambert May 28, 2019

    Been here since the inception of TW and love what SWML is now!! I would like to see a digital version of SCAN!, Other than that…Don’t change a thing.

  16. David May 28, 2019

    First off you guys are doing great I love all the interviews you guys do…best in my books! I love to see behind the scenes or interviews with pros on their tips and tricks. Or even reviews on different gear and what’s best for price! Would love the helmet just as much as anybody else and keep up the videos your doing AWESOME!!

  17. paul Dapello May 28, 2019

    Great way to amp some people up and get more to come pitch in. Keep it up guys, thank you.

  18. Axlehorse May 28, 2019

    Great job Swap!!!

  19. Alex Flake May 28, 2019

    I met Eli last year at the Atlanta supercross and he is a stand up guy, he was bummed that he didn’t win the triple crown that night but still took the time to stop and take some pictures. This would be a cool piece to win to add to my wall of moto.

  20. Chris May 28, 2019

    Thank you swap moto for posting all the inside scoops and giving the spotlight to those that don’t see it often

  21. HughJassle May 28, 2019

    You guys aren’t going to sell our information are you?!? Because that’s something I would complain about!

  22. Patrick Farrell May 28, 2019

    Swap puts out the best content of all the different media outlets!

  23. Drew Morris May 28, 2019

    Loved the Coty Schock videos. Local kid super humble from a great family.

  24. Caitlin May 28, 2019

    This is such a cool giveaway… hoping to see Eli 3-peat this year! I think it’s great that you are doing this! The videos have always been my favorites because you keep it real when interviewing the riders like in the video above. If possible, it would be cool to see a How Was Your Weekend with the mechanics to know what they went through during the day and thoughts on their rider’s performance. Two years ago there was a video with Cole Seely called Clothes Make The Man, I thought that was a great video and would be awesome to see more of that with both 250 and 450 riders.

  25. Anthony Rodriguez May 28, 2019

    Badass site, I don’t follow people to easy and I wanted to follow this page after I heard about it! You guys post rad shit and to give away a helmet from ET3 that’s just even more badass! Haha hope you guys keep on doing stuff like this is all I got to say my guy 🤟🏻

  26. Dylan Torrez May 28, 2019

    I love everything about swapmoto live. There’s nothing bad I can say about it. One thing I think would be cool to add is the old “ask me a question” videos those always were pretty good. Or you know the old “20 questions” video. Videos maybe more behind the scenes. I love the pit videos. Those are always good. And maybe later in the future swapmoto magazines. I had asked donn about that at Hangtown as I was showing him my signed transworld magazine by Bogle back when he won slam. That would be sick. But anyways great content I love the site. So much potential possibly could be better then what transworld once was !!!

  27. Bryan Kawakami May 28, 2019

    Love everything on swapmotolive! Especially the interviews, behind the scene and inside scoop everything moto related. Keep up the great job!

  28. Melissa Conner May 29, 2019

    I love reading about all things moto… Keep up the good work….

  29. Cody Turk May 29, 2019

    Love the interviews and vids!! Great insight on the races and Moto industry

  30. Ron fay May 30, 2019

    Can you do more vids of the bikes and that helmet would be great!!!

  31. Cody May 30, 2019

    Would love this. Tomac is one tough dude! Love you guys and just keep doing what you’re doing!

  32. Mikey T May 30, 2019

    Absolutely love the content as is but would really appreciate more support to the riders being compensated monetarily. These guys need to be paid appropriately for risking their lives for the sport and our viewing pleasure. Life as a privateer shouldnt be so rough. 🤘👊

  33. Corey May 30, 2019

    I’d love to see some more fan art! I’m obviously an artist and into the supercross/motocross scene but I thoroughly enjoy seeing any type of moto art coming through!!!

  34. Kirsten Boggs May 30, 2019

    Winning Eli’s helmet would be the second best thing in the world.. meeting him would be first! Everybody at Motoswap Live keeps us all in the know with the riders & we love it! Thanks for everything! Ready to see Eli take on more wins for this year. 💚🏁 #teamgreen #ET3

  35. Thomas Rees May 30, 2019

    Garage finds are my favorite right now! Seen some really cool stuff so far and very unique concept!
    Keep it up swap!

  36. Bryan Steere May 30, 2019

    I only have some of my old helmets in mine would be totally awesome to get his helmet. Eli is such a fast dude and hate seeing him loose to guys I know he could whoop.

  37. Sara Darr May 30, 2019

    I think you should branch out and show some stuff about Supermoto racing.

  38. Nathan May 30, 2019

    You guys are great. Behind the scene stuff is always awesome to watch.

  39. Blake May 30, 2019

    Swap love what you are doing here at swapmoto live!
    As for what I would like to see more of… You seem to be a lot of the racers favorite media guy because of how light you keep the interviews during the intense stress of race day. From a fans perspective I would like to see a segment where you discuss non moto related items to riders on race day inorder to lighten the mood. Be a topic of the day or a special segment I believe it would be a cool idea. Keep it the good work🤙🏻

  40. Chris May 30, 2019

    Swap moto is my go to for moto news. Keep it up you make us laugh and give us the inside scoop

  41. Shadd May 30, 2019

    Man would this be awesome it’s so hard too come by Eli’s autographed stuff, what I would like too see more of is interaction with your fans like live call ins, or replies too voicemails or call in questions which put you and your fans closer too there hero’s/ riders and also more bench racing for the average guy or girl… thank you, true fan shadd

  42. Konner croushorn May 30, 2019

    Try to get some mechanics and get the lowdown on all the hard work they do to see riders succeed.

  43. Wes May 30, 2019

    Absolutely love the content and coverage, and no doubt my favorite Moto account on Instagram. What would I love to see more of ? Gnarly banded cone pipes, Q&As, Interviews, and obbiously the return of Broc ✊🏼

  44. Nic May 30, 2019

    Swap is super good, news and insight with top riders. Don and everyone work hard and thank you. My dad is the biggest Et3 fan

  45. Ricky West May 30, 2019

    Tomac is my top pic for outdoors this year. That helmet is super nice!! I could really use it had a bad get off at LACR 4 weeks ago broke my arm & hit my head so now my helmet is trash, bikes demolished too and out of work for atleast 4 more weeks so money is gonna be super tight would be a blessing if I won it.

  46. Jordan May 30, 2019

    I’d die. This would be a mantle piece of a life time!

  47. Jenn May 30, 2019

    I’d love to win this for my hubby. He’s always doing and giving and this would make him so happy! He’d die to have this! Good luck everyone! Thanks @swapmoto for doing cool stuff like this for your fans!

  48. David patterson May 30, 2019

    You guys are doing an awesome job. Just keep doing what you are doing.

  49. DJ May 30, 2019

    More privateer stuff! I think everyone loves underdog stories and it definitely helps the privateer guys get some much needed exposure.

  50. Scott Bergeson May 30, 2019

    Lets get more “how was your weekend” interviews! Love what you guys did as Transworld motocross. Keep it up!
    I want that helmet!;)

  51. Connor May 30, 2019

    Wow! Tomac is my idol and I have loved him as soon as I started watching to pro AMA series and Lucas oil promotocross! I would love to see more of him. This helmet would be amazing to have and would be my first thing of a United states pro!

  52. Jason Zimmerman May 30, 2019

    The Dale Earnhardt helmet is the bees knees!!

  53. Matt Gelgand May 30, 2019

    I have to say I am really enjoying everything on the Swap Moto live page and updates. If there was anything I would suggest adding it would be more on training and nutrition for amature riders. My son runs the Swap Moto Race series and your team does a great job making it a competitive yet low stress racing. Keep up the awesome work and we will see you for the finally at Glen Helen.

  54. Ryan Knott May 30, 2019

    Love what you are doing here, pretty good all around media outlet! But my favorite articles are always rider interviews so the more of those I get to see the better

  55. Dylan Gray May 30, 2019

    Love everything you guys do for the sport. It’s growing everyday and your investments are only helping it move forward and progress, thank you!

  56. Riley May 30, 2019

    I would love to see a interview with CHAD REED and i would like to see behind the scenes in the pits

  57. Riley May 30, 2019

  58. Riley May 30, 2019

  59. Riley May 30, 2019

  60. Leo May 30, 2019

    Would like to see the privateer life how the environment goes and if guys could put a GoPro at Eli’s helmet please

  61. Ryan Tuppen May 30, 2019

    Would like to see more behind the secne of the mechanics work on the bikes👍

  62. Ryan Tuppen May 30, 2019

    Would like to see more behind the secne of the mechanic work on the bikes 2ould be awesome👍

  63. Will May 31, 2019

    This media outlet has already become the top motocross outlet there is. The only thing I would recommend is to keep doing what you’re doing and make a print version soon. My mailbox is awfully boring now. Love what you’re doing!!

  64. Rian Wurzer May 31, 2019

    I really like the kickstart articles. Let’s us see all the cool stuff on the factory bikes and you give inside information regarding the sport.

  65. Jesse E Williamson May 31, 2019

    First off, really sucks some Jack Asses had to go&shut down TW but, glad to see what Donn is doing w/ SML(sorry to TW crew if involved also)the only con(which really isn’t a con) I have on contents is Live Podcast could be longer, ecspeicially when there’s Old school dudes like RJ that could probably tell stories for a week! Otherwise keep on keeping on w/ all that is put out!

  66. Marion Camus May 31, 2019

    Would be so cool for me. I’m very fond of El since his debut in 250. I live in France, Eli is my favorite driver. I can not afford to come to the United States to see. I always dreamed of that. I always revoked my autographed race son, a helmet that’s great too. This would be a great gift for a French fan of US Sx and Mx 🙏😍

  67. Marion Camus May 31, 2019

    Eli is my favorite pilot since his debut in 450, I have always dreamed of meeting him. But I can’t afford to come to the States. That would be cool for a big fan like me. I’ve always dreamed of having his signed racing jersey, so his helmet is cool too. It would be nice for a big international fan who can’t afford to meet her idol 😍🙏

  68. Simon Kemp May 31, 2019

    Swap and the crew do an awesome job at getting us the info we want to know about and interviewing rider we want to know about keep it up guys and gals!

  69. Corly Jones May 31, 2019

    I love your website more than the twmx for sure. I’m excited to read more of the “garage finds” and I love the podcast as well. Thanks for all of the hard work you guys put in for us fans to see sides of professional mx/sx that we would not otherwise get to see.

  70. Connor May 31, 2019

    Best moto content out there! Would love to see more podcast produced!

  71. Bobby May 31, 2019

    SwapMotoLive is awesome. Would like to see behind the scenes tech tips and mods from some of the team mechanics, maybe some more riding tips, training, and lessons from the pros, and some “Where are they now” type interviews of some of the past riders like Stepane Roncada, Nathan Ramsey, Shae Bentley, Darcy Lange, etc.

  72. Thomas Kapaun May 31, 2019

    I would like to see more training/riding tips as well as more insight into the training programs of the pros. Also, I think it would be cool to see more behind the scenes stuff, like bike prep before and in between motos. Keep up the good work!

  73. Brandon Cadorette May 31, 2019

    love the content ! Would love to see an interview with coorslightkurry!!! Guys an animal!

  74. Eric May 31, 2019

    You guys are a great company and I’d like to see more giveaways

  75. Alexis Vitale May 31, 2019

    I am a huge fan of the GoPro videos and interviews with the riders!! It gives a different perspective for the fans!

  76. Scott Roberts May 31, 2019

    This is by far the best Instagram account that I follow. I suppose the only two things I would like to see more of is rider interviews and newly released products. 🤔 Keep Up the great work guys!

  77. Trevor P. May 31, 2019

    On a personal level, I’m so thankful for swapmoto live and the continued effort to help grow the sport. Thanks for all of the media content, it’s so awesome that someone stepped the game up and raised the bar. As a big fan, I’ve seen Eli’s career evolve from his scene in mini warriors to where he is now and it’s truly awesome! But my nephew puts me to shame when it comes to enthusiasm when cheering for Tomac. This is for him. Either way both Eli and this site are #1!

  78. Kyle Bell June 7, 2019

    Would be freaking amazing to win that helmet. So far I have no constructive criticism to give SWML they’ve done great with news and photos and video of the riders most of us want to see! Keep up the good work!

  79. Jamie June 8, 2019

    Love that the racers in our sport interact with the fans so much…I hope it goes to a deserving fan

  80. HandicapMX June 20, 2019

    Everything you guys are doing is badass so keep it up! I love seeing the older stuff, so like a cool throwback Thursday post each week would be dope.
