Re: Motocross?

Nice one mate,
im gonna give it a go in the summer over at Geoff May's place on the A11 near red lodge. I need a new hobby like a hole in the head but seeing as I cant play rugby anymore I thought of motocross, im on the lookout for a YZ125.

Re: Motocross?

Motocross is great, I use to race YZ250, I had many years of fun and spent lots of money on my bikes.

Actually the AMA Supercross will be here in Vegas in May.

Re: Motocross?

I did race a little. My last bike was a KX250. Now, I bang bars on "mini bikes" or pit bikes with friends. Slower speeds, lower to the ground, still competitive.
