That could be. He did have a hard time keeping the front tire on the dirt. I am certainly no racer myself. I would like to see two guys who know what they are doing go at it. None the less, I was surprised that he didnt blow right past me. Nice to see you get on here with such positive posts . Must be nice to be 16 and already know it all. I was merely thinking out loud. If you think about, a bike with at least 65 hp should be able to take a bike that weighs the same and has 50hp. I mean 450's are really fast, but 500's are in a league of their own. I am not bad mouthing you or anything, I am just talking bad about the guy on the 500 that let a guy on a 450 beat him.
