What makes a good mini-moto?

What bikes are you guys with mini-motos using?
I think it would be fun to have a one and run it on a mini track
If you were going to do a mini-moto, what would you use?
and if it matters I'm pretty heavy, 6'3" 215lbs

well it depends on if your trying to just have fun or run a specific class. TMGP has different classes with different requirements. I see alot of 80 CC dirt bikes, especially the KX80. Some of the best examples i have seen were the 80's actually

I've been lurking on some other sites
there are some guys putting 12" wheels on xr100s
is that a common thing to do? and is it benifitial?
the stock size wheel is 17" right? I would think there are more tire options for that size

the more I read about it the more I'm really jones'n to get on one

I don't have the "official" calendar in front of me (and I'm too lazy to look) but I have 8/11 penciled in on my work calendar as a TMGP race day in Katy. Might be a good opportunity to head over, talk to folks, look at bikes, etc.
