Its cool you have learnt this stuff so young, impressive- guess your Pops taught you alot. Wish when I was a youngster I had the skill and desire to do the same but I only did basic stuff and let me Dad do the rest (and pay for things!) Credit to you ... more »

Possibly you are answering your own question. Given what you have said I would agree that a 125 maybe the way to go. Sounds like you have some mechanical skills already which is very cool and as said 125 in theory cheaper to maintain. You can probably

It is entertaining and also very well done! Big credit to the make up guy- Deano really did look old! As to whether its 'marketing' himself- who cares really? Damn good rider and a funny personality- I think its great to see a slant on things, as many

Cool find if it is a 23" front, reduced price also- bet they maybe snapped up quick- if I had a 23" FW Honda, would buy 6 of them!

Amazing- what a line up! Think my favourite is the KX, then the CR then the YZ- not sure actually they are all incredibl;e- how nice to see the old bikes we grew up with. Bikes look amazing.

Added reply in a thread TPS sensor gone bad? 10/25/2018 6:56 AM

Yes- had this also on my TPS on car, it lowered abit when turning but wasn't low enough as per specs. Wasn't too far off though so I left it. May get another though.

Yes I remember Terry House and his brother Stuart House- Team Suzuki- as quick as hell, those two. Also do you remember Alan Ranger- think he did Ringwood- was fast. Also the Bryant brothers, Aaron Bryant and his older brother- forgot his name. Both ... more »

Well you were probably correct- pretty much! I.e- Jones/ Ammex...Horse Head Emblem etc. What with Cooper/ Jones/ Islo all being a similar thing and using the bought up Islo parts which as you say were stamped with the Horse head- so yes=- Cooper/ Jones

^^ Yes no worries, I understand- joking or not- thought you may have been serious- to me does look quite like a prancing horse symbol- as Ferrari used! As said, one may have thought Ferrari could have even made bikes; like Maserati did which were rare. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Horse Head Frame Number 10/17/2018 1:15 PM

It does sort of look like it, Ferrari symbol/ logo but they never make bikes... think I am correct in saying somewhat. Maserati did I think in maybe the 1950's, being another interesting car manufacturer, that maybe one wouldn't have thought ever made ... more »

May as well make EMX250 and MX2 just one class really - if the age limit in both is 23! May make for a full grid also, in MX2 that is, EMX250 had more than a full grid! Many good riders with nowhere to go- other than this new 2T Championship, may even ... more »
