ideal tmgp sprint bike

if you were to get a sprint bike, what would be your ideal sprint bike.
what are the reasons that bike is your selection?

KLX110. Cause they can make 25 horsepower with the right mods. Also, the aftermarket is endless for them, 12" tires stick like glue, and they are just the right size for old knees.

Do you want a gp frame or a motard?
What class do you want the bike legal for?
Do you want 4 stroke or 2 stroke?

I have rode a ysr50, nsr50, nsf100, xr/xrf100, klx110, ttr125, xr/crf150f and the kx65, personally I like the 4 strokes over the 2 strokes and I like the motards over the gp bikes...but thatís just personal preference

I like the klx as it fits me and itís what Iím most comfortable on, not to mention it has a ton of aftermarket parts available for itÖbut now that F7 has a 115cc limit its allittle harder to be competitive as there is no bore kit you can buy and keep it under 115, unlike the xr/crf100 where there are kits available but you are limited on options for things like a rear shock



Why not just get another xr/crf100 and have your sprint bike and your endurance bike built to be identical

Yes well, it is not exactly "legal" but then again, how many times has a bike been protested in the last few years?

sounds more like compensating for rider ability
