The TMGP stuff looks like fun. How in the world do you find a bike capable of copeting in those though? I've never seen a street bike smaller than 125cc.

I have an NSR50 for sale that is already race wired and prepped for TMGP / CRMA.

The only down is that I need a bottom end :/:

Of all the racing I have done, which includes motorcross, supercross, arena cross, and club level road racing, TMGP is teh most fun I've ever had on two wheels. Just buy a KX65 and start having some fun!

But Aprilia makes a 50, but it's POS though

I know they make one, but I've only ever seen the 125 and 250 stateside.

I have a must better grasp on that stuff now!- and dont worry, like i said before, and ill say again... im not trying to race. I dont have a hot head and im not going to "sign up" or do something i know im uncapable of doing! Ive only done 3 track days, and 2 half days!. Heck, I was even told I could move to intermediate and said no...bc i didnt want to slow anyone else down! Gotta start slow to get fast...im in no hurry. I just wanted to learn all this stuff i kept hearing so much about...but knowone would take the time out and tell me...so, thank you again Tom!

Notice to etc. dots? there was more to it, you only quote half-truths.

Didn't crash last time though. Didn't have the money to pay for the leathers I was borrowing. I was told to crash in the ones i did crash in.
