I may be able to get a baby sitter for May 8th if anyone is interested in the supermoto class :)

I'll give the class a try to see if I enjoy the smaller gokart track before jumping in :)

Lol!  That's Shane!

One of the things I loved about racing with the mini crowd was how ego-free everyone was when compared to the big-bike crowd.  It made everything so much better.

Ride on,

Sounds like fun! Apex is only 30 minutes from me, I might try it.

Cool!  Mini's on the charge! 

Still looking for a KX65.  One lead at the moment but not sure if he'll bite at my offer :)

Thanks man!  The 85 races in a different class though; opens up a lot more options. 

That said, found a rm65!!  Picking up later this week!  :44: Well,  :45: really LOL

it's actually pretty impressive how those bikes put down 14hp or so in 0.65 liter stock motors...all the nsr's and xr100's are roughly 8hp

get the cylinder ported n hoollllllllld on!!

Yea, everyone keeps telling me how fast these little bikes are!  I guess it must be the torque of the single cyl that makes them feel quick?  And still under 300lbs with me on it.

OK, so my OCD was going off hard on that... And hell ya that's A LOT of power from only 65cc's. For example, if you got that same power ratio from a small block 350ci Chevy (a 5.7 liter engine), it would be a 1,227hp engine! Damn! (5.7/0.065=87.6923077 x 14hp=1,227). You would have to blow or turbo that Chevy to get that kinda power to cubic inch ratio out of it.
