In the Plus 50 class ridden by new comer to the over 50 class, Michael Keating from Texas. Major props to him as he finished 3rd behind Griewe and Carsten and ahead of Earl May.

I also qualified for that class on my 125, but unfortunately fractured my arm 10 days ago and could not make it. While I was able to start in front of Michael each moto at the regional, he ended up ahead of me all 3 moto's. I really pumped on his finish at the Ranch in his first moto and wish him well the rest of the week.

Gives you a good idea of how much bikes have actually progressed, or not.

But that is very cool, congrats to him!

Sweet! The 03-04 yz models are amazing bikes with just a few tweaks on suspension. I love my 04!

I had '97, '99. '00, '01, '03 and '05 YZ125s and the '03 was my least favorite of the bunch. That 5-speed was just not quite close enough between gears for me. Great bike otherwise, though. All of them are killer machines.

Once again, it shows the 2 stroke can be competitive among the sea of four strokes.
Awesome that a 50+ rider proved it also.

me and my dad recently had a 2003 and a 2017 yz250.

wanna know what was different?
aluminum frame and suspension components. beyond those its all the same

as far as how they rode?

almost couldnt tell beyond how we each set them up. the older forks werent as smooth but i got them working pretty well to where the sss forks were marginally better feel wise.
