Thanks for the article. Very accurate Desc.

especially about the frame. I broke mine in 1/2 going over a jump one day. Frame stuck in the ground. Which nearly killed my boys. :)

it was almost impossible to keep the front end on the ground.

Here's the 'hopper list:

-Solid-Framed Briggs/Stratton Minibike

-Briggs/Stratt Go-cart (2 seater to haul the local chicks)

-88 RM125 'Full Floater'

-92 KX125 'FULL' floater..rear shock was blown

-92 EX500 (First Crotch Rocket...bad accident)

-97 CBR900RR

---Still Have From Here Down---

-99 ZX9R

-00 Triumph Sprint St 955

-99 ZX9R

-00 ZX12R

-01 GSXR1300R Haybusa

-97 Triumph Daytona 955i

-00 Honda RSV1000 RC51

-01 YZ426F (Tires and crashes are cheaper on this one)

mostly been on 'Crotch Rockets' for the last 8 years, going back to my roots...tickets are getting expensive in Ks (50mph over is over $600...got 2 last year) and rear tires cost close to $200 ea (go through one in about 5 weeks :D ). The 426 is more fun, at a slower speed, and my wife can watch and participate at the track, rather than just sit at home....
