I ride a 125 for the same reason, for how it makes me ride. On a good day, all out, on the power band, in the right gear, keeping momentum and choosing good lines. I love it!

I agree, but that's what he says is the plan. Evidently, he was supposed to move up for SX in 2022, but is staying down this coming year. We'll see what happens.

If Forkner is moving up next year for outdoors, then it's a good move for Kawi. He's already said that he's racing 250 for SX 2022. Forkner + Cianciarulo is a good team. A change of scenery is probably good for Tomac too.

To me it seemed from the start that Kenny was not as smooth as usual. Shortly after Webb bumped him out of the way, Kenny started missing jumps. I don't know if it was the bike or him. After that he backed off. Probably the smart move. Kenny's a racer. ... more »

Added reply in a thread "If you could change SX's bikes..." 4/30/2021 1:33 AM

A few thoughts: Just like Nascar and F1 do, every few years we need to control the speed. When the cars get too fast, they change the max displacement. Changing max displacement allows EVERYONE to innovate, and make money. If we went with stock engines, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Will Roczen ever win a SX Championship? 4/23/2021 4:12 PM

Since when does a series end 2 races before it's over? My understanding, and I might be wrong, is that it ain't over until it's over. A 16 point lead can disappear in a second, or another 16 points added. I hope Roczen fights to the end, and expect he ... more »

We mostly ride Fox Raceway, sometimes Cahuilla. Come on down and hang out with us! We have a blast! I'd love to ride Perris again (been a while), and Glen Helen. We'll be riding at Fox on Saturday. Look for 2 or 3 YZ125's between the Pro track and the ... more »

I'm 59, and race a 2005 YZ125 upgraded to SSS suspension. I race 3 classes when possible. 50+ beg/novice, 250f beginner, and 125 beginner when they it. When I start winning, I'll move myself up (hopefully this year). I ​ride a 125 because of how it makes ... more »

Added reply in a thread Headaches after a day of riding 4/7/2021 12:31 AM

Headaches are going to have multiple causes. Strengthening the neck muscles helps if the cause is tension or simply stress on the neck. If it's sinus related from all of the fumes and dirt, try wearing a bandana over your mouth and nose while riding. ... more »

Upgraded my 2005 YZ125 to SSS forks and a 2009 shock. Bought them both used. Once dialed in it made a big difference. Also, the Vforce4 reeds are an absolutely incredible investment for a YZ125. The pull is amazing after the upgrade. Best $100 I've spent ... more »

Alright, I stand corrected. In the highlights reel it Anderson's take out of Mookie doesn't look that harsh. In the live event, it looked worse, as Mookie's bike took a jolt. I'd love to hear the 2 riders comment on the events.

Media day should be open to all racers or no racers. It's not fair to privateers when only the factory racers get to preview the track.
