Soon I've been enjoying this rig for the past 3 seasons, I bought it with the intent of becoming a better rider and learning how to corner and utilize my momentum.



It's been fun, but I was ready to try something new - first new bike! And I am so excited - skid plate, numbers and few other essentials are in the mail! Can't wait - Feel like I am going from a Civic hatch to a BMW m3 Grinning









Had a few opportunities on Japanese brands, but held off - glad I did, the attention to detail on this thing is incredible!

Ha it sold rather quick - sad to see it go but I'm sure the Husky will distract me. Although I am sure I will build up another 125 in the future, nothing like it and learned a lot from my first build I'd change on the second.

Thanks guys!

Slosh - I like your taste! Ha I see you're still a 2 stroke line up, I've never had any time on a modern 4 stroke - looking forward to the experience.

If you don't like that 4CS fork, I wouldn't spend a ton of money "fixing" it. AER swap would be better money spent.

But you might like it. Nice bike btw!

Thanks guys!
Rode for the first time last night it was an unbelievable riding experience !

Corners before jumps I was railing the outside to barely make On my 125, I was making last minute line decisions - take the inside and over jumping.

Just so easy to ride, I kept riding it a gear higher and had great track momentum but it was effortless.

I've progressed the most ever last night, taking lines and hitting jumps I've never done before - but it was all bike Laughing

I've read a lot about the forks, but they are a drastic improvement over my 125 so for now they're feeling quite plush and comfortable - yet I am probably not fast enough to truly notice. I come from a bicycle background - Dirt jump, pumptrack, bmx and I bought my first real dirt bike at 23, now I'm 27 and just banging elbows with my buddies and young guys Tongue

Time to go wash and get ready for round 2! Cheers.
