I'm gonna run 250's and (finally) Sid's old 600 in the novice class. On the cheap. Hoping for a top 3 for the year.

There is no better way to learn a track than to run it fast on a slow bike.

I'll be bringing my 250 BRAWP track (everybody rides her) out to MSRH for the fastline mini-only short track session in a few weeks. Yee haa!! If anyone wants a turn, just look for the white #48 BRAWP bike.

Look over there <<<<< that's me having a blast on my 250!
I want a go!

I looked for you at MSRH on 11/2 but I didn't see you. I was the guy texting you about the 250 team.

Something tells me if you find the white #48 plastics... you are not looking at the BRAWP bike...

Well as of about an hour and a half ago... that bike has a problem. The previous owner either crossthreaded or overtorqued one of the spark plugs.. so I need to get in there with a time cert or helicoil or something.

Now you just need to go try out a TMGP bike and find out how much fun it is.

I never got that out of ours. After tucking the front over and over trying to out brake the 16 year olds and blowing up motors, plus adding suspension, chain conversions, rear sets, bodywork, clip ons etc, I think we had $5k in our 09 that we picked up for like $1800. Lost a couple grand when we sold it.

They only thing we saved on was tires and the initial investment was a little less considering you can buy a nicely sorted 600 for about $6k. Everything else was about the same as a big bike.

We must've been doing it wrong.
