I can't believe I didn't post up to brag about this sooner. We went to Lake Elsinore on Saturday to turn some laps and the LitPro guys were there to demo their products. They hooked up a transponder to my daughter's helmet and she went out on the Vet track for a while.
Now, there wasn't a huge contingent of fast dudes on the Vet track, but there was the usual spread of riders - 450s, 250s and some kids on 85s. My little girl rides an RM85 and she straight up waxed a lot of people that day, including dudes on full-sized motorcycles. I am so proud. smile

Nice. Just curious how old she is? I was watching the LL girls, something like 12-16, on superminis. They just seemed a lot smoother and more in control of the bikes than the ladies riding 250s. My daughter has a supermini and she's asking for a bigger bike, but I just don't think she has the strength for it even though she is too tall for the bike.

Couple weeks ago, I pitted next to a girl who got 2nd in the ladies class. She was on a 250. I had to help her off the bike, put it on the stand, and load it up for her. Not that I minded at all. She was gnarly and super cool. But I just couldn't help but think that 250 wasn't quite right for her. Seemed like a supermini or 125 would've been plenty and a lot easier for her to handle on her own.

For the one dude that disliked the original post? How good did that smoke smell as she went past?

Hard to believe someone would down vote a proud father. Maybe he grew up in an orphanage? Sad. Photo

She's 14. Like your friend on the 250, she is too big for the 85. I think a big wheel would be perfect for her, but she wants a 125. She's barely 5'3" though, and I can imagine it being too much for her. I'm thinking we might be looking at an SX85 or TC85 big wheel and big-bore it or something.

I'd get the 125 and have the suspension lowered. My wife is around 5'5 and with the suspension lowered 50mm she can touch both sides. You could even shave the seat if needed and then as she grows just get the suspension raised back up

My wife is also barely 5'3 and has ridden a 125 with lowered suspension for years, really likes it, and is nowhere near as fast/skilled as your daughter.

I'm thinking in terms of her being able to pick it up after she crashes. Then again a 125 is only a little heavier than her 85. Hmmm. I do love 125s... maybe I'll get one for myself and let her ride it!

Sold my 16 yo stepdaughters sx85 big wheel last year. She has ridden my 125 a few times recently and loves it. It’s a totally rebuilt 2000 and she is 5’3”. May have to get myself a newer one now...
