JohnnyB gets Dirty

Just bought this:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...245394721&rd=1

A few moments ago. Let the mini-moto fun begin.

Anyone else have one? Any tips, tricks etc. I already have a CR80 front end for it, will be getting a BBR rear spring.

Cornerspin awaits...

Congrats on the new ride JohnnyB, I'm sure it will yield miles of smiles, and hopefully some trophies.

You have excellent taste in Mini Bikes JohnnyB!
I have a Brand-new-in-the-box Pro Circuit T-4 exhaust system that will bolt right on to that little beauty!

PM me if you are interested.

Hey, I gotta have a little time to learn to ride it first

Yep I got some buddies already wanting me to go to Cornerspin with them.

The back yard track is just about ready ( about a 300 yard TT style course), and about 1 mile of trails.

Already have some slicks and rains (RS125 race take offs), gotta get some spare wheels built first. Get the CR80 front end swap sorted out.

I'll appreciate any advice from any mini-moto-motard riders here.

Jet...great thread on your 150. Exactly the type of stuff I want to do. And more than one of your reasons for going to a 150 are the same as mine. I gotta slew of ex-roadracer buddies doing the dirt, and motard...and even some RR with their 150's now.

Your mod thread will be very handy, and I'll have questions for you.

I pick the bike up at Noon today.

H-ryder.... give me a week or so, I have one last race on Labor day, and a few things to take care of that week...so after that. You have a dirt bike?

Here's some pic's of my little toy. Sad to say it's going on the auction block soon. It's a blast to ride though!

The dog is still a pup...he's easily impessed.

Nice bike Mr. Squidly!

If you want to give it a true durability test ... just let me know. I can break just about anything!
