Fair enough, but still very strange. My son doesn t seem to be worried about the look though

Hi guys, thanks for all the replies, very interesting. I have just sold my A-10. Was bothering me with my leatt neck brace. Never felt confortable when using both. When I did not wear the brace it was absolutely fine and never felt it to be bulky. I ... more »

No no, I still have my trusted 2015 Honda CRF250R. This thing is pretty good but I just wanted a new bike. I feel for me there was no point buying a 450 and wanted something light/nimble. Not sure about you or the USA, but bikes are pretty expensive ... more »

Nothing. Missed out on all great 18 deals. There s a few interstate but by the time you pay the freight it s not worth it. I literally walked in to get a 125sx 2018 and the guy was wheeling it out strainght onto his trailer. Next best option was a TC125 ... more »

M in Brisbane mate. Crap, no more 18 yz 125 available for such a good price. Dealer being a ktm and Yamaha, told me I could have a 18 125 six for $9000. $500 more than the 18 yz. Might be worth. New question: how s the 125sx?? Easy to ride? Air fork? ... more »

I don t use a GoPro as I don t like looking at the footage. It s doesn’t really do justice. What I have now, is a drone. Much better, I film my son from any angle I want, keeps everything in proportion and when I want to film myself, I just use the follow ... more »

Nice one. I m about to pull the trigger on a 2 stroke after I rode a mates one last week end. Had never ridden one before and was blown away by the difference and the lightness of it. When I was looking at your photos I thought that the scenery looked ... more »

On the topic of throttles, is there a standard throttle assembly that limits travel/twist. I have a look at the g2 and motion pro but at $300 aud, it s a bit more than I want to spend considering I wil be selling the bike. All the above have interchangeable ... more »
