looks good Tony....if anyone is interested in hitting up the SHNF the weekend after Christmas, hit me up. 3 or 4 of us are already plan on heading out there.

Tony, which did you prefer more, the MX or the trails? I was clowning on my friends for the whole trailriding thing before I got to actually tried it b/c I thought the MX scene was pretty cool. What I found was, that I became familiar with the MX track and would push it more and more. More times than not, it landed me on my . I think I'm preferring the trail scene over the MX stuff b/c I maintain more focus since I don't know what lies ahead.

that's one of the most badass feelings...and I'm comfortable doing it on the dirt. Sitting at the bottom of the Red River over Thanksgiving weekend...5 or 6" of sand and DBuck was doing circles, roosting everything....I thought I was riding a waverunner for a minute.

Yea dirtbiking is fun as , I use to live on those things, but now they are just too tall for me, I got the Cannondale 440X, but its just a roosting monster and about a foot too tall, I kinda want something a little smaller, shorter, I was thinking about a crf 150, 200, or 230, I,m thinking 4 stroke with electric start would be great?? anyone interested in some sorta trade??, problem is this 440 is a high end bike, so it would have to be something badass or +$$
