    So, Mr P, do you want the '14 250f or hold out for a blowout sale on '13s and throw a big bore kit in it? :freaky

    I'm going for a 13, about $5500 vs $7500. A 2007 is better than anyone of us here on the site so a 13 is WAY better then me, $2000 is a lot of money.
    Hopefully next week...

    I had found this picture the other day and didn't think much about it until Flug posted elsewhere about a Hodaka, so I took a picture of it to post. I then saw the date on it....FORTY FRIGGEN YEARS AGO :eek1

    [​IMG]

    I can not believe that I have been so lucky and am still riding and racing FORTY FRIGGEN YEARS LATER :eek1

    In honor of that I am going to do what any racer would do and that is cut out of work early and go ride my new bike!

    I forgot how easy a 250f was to ride!

    What a Great bike, after not riding a 4 stroke for 3-4 years I was amazed at how quickly I adjusted to it. So easy to get over the doubles that are right after a corner where I would have to rail the corner on the 125 and make sure I was 100% on it the 250f will just launch you off the lip. I did feel the weight of it in the breaking bumps and was not as easy to correct in mid flight but all in all I was very happy with it.

    Of course I could not get it started when we got to the track which was no fun, just didn't have the drill down but once going it started first kick every time.

    Now I want to ride again:D:D:D:D!

    Fast is relative.... I feel good while riding and in most case confident.
    They just keep adding these new friggen jumps. step ups freak me out! There is a wall of dirt in front of you and you are supposed to jump and clear over it....wtf? well I pulled up my big girl panties and cleared it...magic.
    I have to remind myself that all these obstacles are made to complete not kill you, when I muster up the testosterone to do it they are easy....I just don't have that much testosterone anymore...lets face it the Manzieer is right around the corner for me :D

    Kenny, I rode out West and was out of my element x 10, so uncomfortable...felt like I had never ridden a dirtbike before.
    I watched your video when you fell in the rock ledge and I must have done it 50 times that week. As well as hit every god dammmm cactus that was within 20 feet of the trail :D I'll take a double jump any time on a mx track over the six miles of hell. (only triples I do are at Wendys)

    I haven't ridden my 125 since getting the 250f, I had a chance on Monday as I lent my 250 to a friend for the day. Took awhile to get used to but I forgot how much fun a 125 is! Had a blast on it, went through 2 tanks of gas!:D:D:D
