Yeah mate, Dillion's a fast kid mate! Especially on an 85, he's just won the lateset arena cross I think!

Sadly not anymore mate not rode mx properly for about 2 years but I was last on an mx bike on a track in April last year was on a kx125 and loved every minute of it! Up until the throttle cable stuck flat out in 4th on a rhythm section haha! Apparently I was still begging to get on the bike even with completely smashed helmet and everything haha

Why have you stopped? From some of your posts here and there and even from your profile pic with your elbows up chin over the bar obviously know the correct stance for mx i get the feeling your quite good, and to be top end on a rhythm section in 4th on a 125 means you must have the skill to do it that fast!!†

Money mate sadly, at the time is just blew my crf 250, second one in 6 months! Plus the van had broke so couldn't get the bike anymore, when I rode it was me and my nephew who rode and sadly I bit the bullet and decided to sell the bike and everything so my sister could get a cheap van to keep my nephew riding :( now he's stopped I hate not having a bike! Gonna get another 125 some time soon! Thanks mate I've never seen me self to know what I'm like riding but on the weekend I crashed my friend pulled me of the track to give the bike a rest as he could smell it getting hot as I shot past him haha, as for my pic on the DT that is one my favorite bike pictures I don't know how I managed to lean that lump over like I have on that picture haha! Get some pics up of you riding mate! Here's one of me on the 125

Yeah I really do need to stick with the 2 stroke! Haha will be getting one soon don't you worry! Pretty sweet photos man will get some of me getting some good air at Preston docks from when I was racing, you've got a nice style on the bike! Got my old shoei helmet on there! Do miss that helmet sadly smashed on a high side on the face of a jump! Woke up thinking I was still in bed! What neck brace you got mate? I never got one until I had that crash that ruined my shoei

Whoah thats a big tabletop!! Is that someones bike upside down on the far left lol
Yeh see im 6'3 with long legs and i feel cramped on the kawi, might change to a ktm next i hear their more roomy
Its not actually a neck brace its a evs rc3 race collar, bout £30 attaches to your armour, i haven't really had any bad crashes yet (touch wood) but i did smash into the barriers on a straight/dragon back in top end of 4th, oh and when i went into a burm flat out but exited to early before the straight and bounced on my shoulder, done my ribs but on both occasions my neck felt fine :), its more for little falls rather than actually stopping your neck from breaking it serious crashes
What neck brace you got? And what 125 you getting

Yeah it is mate! Haha Preston docks mate have a look on YouTube! Great track it is!!, ah see I'm only 5'8 so I'm short as on the bikes! Had a 350 Ktm and I looked tiny on the thing but I look like that on every bike! Haha ouch bet that hurt mate! Haha I've had a good few crashes but only broke a few bones luckily! Mostly concision! I've got a leatt gp 2! Amazing bit of kit! Really comfy! And not to sure thinking a yz or something!

Here's me on the 350 look small! And me nephew on his 50 back in the days

ktm was the cairolli replica! Loved that bike!†

Yes mate that bike looks the utter boll*cks!!
Damn i want a ktm now! Haha ive worn the leatt i should definately buy one but im abit tight wont pay the money! Ha was really comfy and reassuring, either that or the alpinestar neck brace
Ive got the feeling you are very good, much better than me! You dont need skill to open it up abit to do a jump like what i do!

Getting a van soon, so think ill trade the DT in for a MX bike†smilesmilesmilesmile

My track was full up with some trials event today(got bored of watching after 20 mins), so i had to go rip some waterlogged green-lanes instead†

p.s 13-57 is mad, get about 10mph in first lol and about 60mph out of 6th but i can finally roost off in 2nd gear ††

Yes vic thought you would enjoy the new gearing, finally got that 2nd gear pull away! Once you start mx you will wish you started sooner
Thats what everyone says liam, i should really get a decent neckbrace, and decent boots, cased a triple yesterday and it felt like my ankles exploded! Where abouts did you race?

You ever heard of canada heights?

how long have you been doing it liam? Ive been doing it for about a year now

I weren't trying to clear the triple i just got abit too exited on the first run and over cleared the double!! Not good enough to be clearing triples yet mate, happy to do the doubles atm

4 years! Yeh you've got allot more experience on me, i try get out every weekend though, no doubt you will when you get your 125? If i was you i would get the ktm 150

Oh haha I'd be trying to clear it! I've done tripples but they're sketchy! Gotta have a lot of commitment! Haha

Not that much mate I haven't rode properly for about 2 years but I had about 2 proper years of motocross, yeah I'll be out all the time on the 125! Used to ride a private track all the time near mine! I might do mate, never rode one tho so need to have a go and see what they're like!

This has just killed me, my 450's still rotting away in a police compound somewhere :(

Funny you say you had a kx125 with a dodgy throttle, rode my mates one, once, got to the first jump throttle stuck open overshot it by miles 15ft in the air lol.

Scary stuff when that happens, i somehow got the throttle cable wires tangled or something on the weekend, was going into a corner it went wide open! Luckily werent going for a jump or anything so just clutched it and hit the kill switch

Ah man thats bad, should have stuck to the tracks!! But then i cant say anything because i used to do it lol

get another one!! :D

Nah man, the ktm turned out to be a bit dodgy in the end, don't want to say too much but the paperwork deffo wasn't genuine...had no other choice other than to break it for spares, done over a treat on that :(

It's my KLX450 again can't give too much away being a public forum and all, but was in the woods doing something very stupid...gotta go back to the police station on weds, see if I get charged, if I can get my bike back, if I'm gonna keep my licence and my job...

Aye the dt isn't the best for jumps, and then there's the landing f**k!!

Nice bike for ground work though, the seat forces you into sitting forward in the rutts, i could imagine the dt would be fun for enduro's :)
