How do you like it? I'm partial to Hondas myself.. I'm getting a CR125R, and my dad and brother are each getting moto X bikes too. then I may possibly get an F4i in a year or two.
I really like the ZX6RR but it is just not good for rides more than 70 miles or so. Just to cramped up in my legs but man does she run. I'm not a wild rider by any means but the ZX6RR can lay it down if you want to. I'm actually waiting for some nicer weather as I think I'm going to get a new 04 Yamaha FZ6. Alot more comfortable an still has 100hp (98 actually). Alot more upright but still will have plenty of go.

A CR125 that should rip. I'm really a Yamaha guy and bought the Zx6RR cause I got a steal on it. It is really the only bike I would have bought other than Yamaha R6, YZF600, or FZ6. That CR125 should rip. I would like to get a YZ125 or a YZ250 2 stroke. Would be fun but I think where I ride at TowerCity a 4 stroke is actaully more practical for trail riding. I also like the KTM stuff for dirtbikes as well. They make some pretty hot bikes and are really starting to get some good finishes in stuff other than enduro racing.

I don't own a sportbike, I know they can be kind of uncomfortable for longer ride but we do own a 98 Harley Sportster 883, I ride it sometimes, I don't really like it that much, it's comfortable though. we're selling it to help buy the dirtbikes/trailer/gear/etc.

I'll tell you why! He said he was getting out of the hobby.
It's mine now!

not sure, what/where is it? My dad and my brother mainly want to do trail riding, but I want to do some moto X, and maybe race-cross. Have you ever heard of the Flying Dutchman? I was talking to some people at school who race there sometimes.

Not sure why the Ofna 12th scale arbor sucks, but I have read on several forums where people had issues with them.

I wonder if the guy that you borrow the ofna truer from is the same guy that you forgot to get 40's for!
hahah...oops! blame it on LEE, hes the one that told me what to get!

I heard of the Flying Dutchman. TowerCity is off Interstate 81 going north. It is before you would get to Wilkesbarre/Scranton going up north. It is a great place to trail ride and their is also a small motocross track.

Sounds awesome, we'll have to check it out in a few months when we get the bikes. Do you have AIM? PM with your screen name, I want to talk to you about Doc and RCO.

Rob: Where did you get your Hudy Universal from? Is it the automatic or the manual feed?

I bought mine from MUFFIN here on rctech, I had been searching for months. There's one on ebay now, 110V, with 2 arbors, http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=34063 that's what I bought, the manual crank one, I don't really need an auto, I'm not that lazy but theres 2 auto ones up on ebay too.

instead of buying a tire truer, could i just use a wood or metal lathe, i have much easier acsess to them, and can get it done during school, a big plus.

Yeah, we have those at my school too. We have a 2 plane mill and a metal lathe and 2 wood lathes, but I figured it would be worthwhile to have my own little lathe to carry around and use whenever I need it. You could probably use them, as long as an arbor would fit onto the shaft, and some kind of cutting tool went along the X axis.
