YZ250F. Great bike. More capabilities than 90% of can ever use. While being easy to ride. Unless you put the air cleaner in incorrectly (and suck dirt) or neglect the oil changes, it will last forever. (For these reasons there is some risk in buying ... more »

Where did they end up? It gets harder to pass riders as you get closer to the lead. It is a lot more impressive to go from 20th to 6th, than 40th to 15th

My fault for resurrecting last weeks thread. But the title and sentiment still fitted. Jett is going like a, Jet!
