Peter,

I can get out early, but I need to be at the car by 2pm, if that works. Shoot me a PM.

Dan

Crf 150f

It is red and 150 CCs for a while. Going to be calling BBR for some help going
from mild to not quite so mild. Will see how it works.

Maybe a BBK? 230cc perhaps? Should be a good mount. Don't discredit the air fooled!

Ah...it is cooled by air[150F]. I had a 150R very fun but not much different than my YZ 125 for root and log hopping[with short legs].

Who is this BBK you speak of?

I think he means BBR

I think it's in your neighborhood.

I'm looking forward to checking out the new toy. I remember the 150r. Did you get the big wheel version (I assume there is both a big and small wheel version of the aircooled bike, too, could be wrong).

I would love to know how a 150R works for a (smaller) adult size rider. I've seriously considered getting one.

Same size wheels as the 150RB I had. I don't think they have a big an small 150F. BBR is in Auburn, BBRP in Bellingham.

I'm 5' 6" with a 28" inseam. The 150RB I had was very fun a bit more on the bottom than my 06 YZ 125. I wanted to get a f this time. Called BBR[Brown Brothers Racing] this morning about a pipe and 195CC kit. The 150RB was a hoot where you could let it go

BBRP is in Bellingham, good guy.

Got another dent in my expansion chamber, to add character. Split Rock hasn't been moved. That is all.

My Husky is about 4 oz lighter. I lost turn signal to a tree?

Nah, more generically - a Big Bore Kit or not.

I had a TTR250. It was air cooled and wonderful.
