I'm curious as to what I could do to her NSR to be competitive in Formula 7 sprints.

while you guys are talking about nsr's are they street legal in the states , are they fairly easy to find like the old ysr 50's?

Next year I was looking at getting something along those lines for my g/f to learn to ride on,

it would be used around are area no highway use.

not real safe for roadway driving as the top speed isn't too high and the low end would prolly get you run over after taking off from a green light.

not really street legal unless you build it up to be, or import one from Japan. But I don't know how much trouble all that would entail.

check the aprilia or derbi 50s if you are wanting street legal. but I'd probably not want to ride one on the streets either. Cars would run ya over!

Yeah it will be for tulling around the nieghborhood, i think it would be far better than geting her a n 250 and turning her loose on 1960

i wouldn't really feel safe riding either a nsr or the ysr on the street. they are too low to the ground, and would be hard to see over the hood of a car.

like I said, if I were to tool around on a 50 on the roadways, it would be on a derbi or aprilia, based on the seat height. but you are better off with something a bit more powerful to get out of the way of someone's busy schedule.

anyhow
