    Rocky Hill Ct. it is in the CT river basin so is all river silt and aside from being under water all spring the conditions can be awesome in late spring and fall. tends to be dusty in the middle of the summer.

    what class is he riding the 04 in? 05 they went to the aluminum frames on both 125/250 and there seems to be conflicting opinions on the 2. imagine that..

    has he/you ridden the aluminum frames compared to the 04 steel frame?

    My friend with the 04 bought a 10 aluminum frame and he says he can't tell the difference and if anything he pefered the older bike because it had Factory Conn suspension. Both are great bikes but what a hanful compared to a 125, Those things have some hit to them, there is no pinning it around the whole track!

    Ive got this thing sitting in my ft room,Id like to race it at Catalina if they have it again.
    Seems like the perfect bike for that except its scratchless and blemish free.

    I was at Hangtown every year I could be when they had it up by Placerville/georgetown.
    Great memories of Hannah doing stuff nobody else could quite do.
    Magoo doing things that seemed impossible.
    Camping in some farmers field with who knows how many other maniacs,huge bonfires,station wagon races,general craziness all night.
    That WAS fun!!!!!!!!!!!
