I got a chance to ride the 250F last weekend and I guess I'm just spoiled by the 426 power 'cuz the 250 did not impress me with it's motor. It handles great and susp. felt real good but I need the motor to make up for my mistakes and the 250 won't do that. It was good enough that 2 friends went out and bought them this week.
All I can say is the holeshots are all mine now! (unless g-man shows up)

I rode my bud's on Death Trail last Sun. and said the EXACT SAME THING! LOL If your not in the right gear it coughs and sputters. I'lll take the just grab a handfull and GO POWER of the 426 anyday. :D

Hey I was at SpeedWorld today and your buddy Tim #89 was there, we had a duel of Death!
Went back and forth but I was doing Marathon 55 Min. Motos and wore him out, (I think) hehehe :)


btw did you race at Canyon, how did you guys do?
Does he go there every Thurs? If so, no wonder he goes so fast!

Glad someone else think so, Tim #89 and
Brad #56 both bought 250f's. Brad had his there Thurs. and Tim just called and is picking his up right now. He says he's gonna race the 400 Sunday but I bet he rides the 250. Man, I hope it doesn't rain alot tomorrow and ruin the track like last time.
I did race after they moved Tim up to Master B and the races didn't start till about noon. The track wasn't too bad then but was really one lined. I won the Expert (3-1) and Tim won the Master B (1-1).
Tim said you were haulin' at Speedworld I guess your getting dialed with the thumper. 55 min? you'll whip all of us if your in that kind of shape!
Yeah, they both go almost every Thurs. but I can't make it.
Are you racing Sunday at Canyon? Tri-State Series 1st round.

Did u guys race today? I was kinda "under the weather" :)

Good job on the last race!

I saw Tim riding a new bike, didn't realize it was a 250. He must have really liked it huh? They go every Thurs? jeez no wonder he's fast! I just recently got laid off from Motorola, so maybe I'll join him....
