there are a lot of classes come out an watch some time. If you want the bike first check out for sale here or at the tmgp site
http://phillipskids.com/phpBB2/viewf...bea8af3e3c6a29

like any race bike buying a used one that a racer has set up is always best.

Go to the tmgp website.
50cc 2 smoke and up to 110cc air cooled 4 smoke (stroke).
Los is probalby talking endurance unless you are capable of 4 hours alone.

P.S. pocketbikes don't make the show much any more from what I understand. Might want to find something more user friendly.

Think arturo has a nsr50 on here. Dig through for sale. And persistance is the key. Try other forums as well.

yep, just the 60, but I still have the NSR.

But duck, you can ride the katy track (non-race day) if you are a member, or go as a guest of a member. Even practice days are a lot of fun.
