I did call Chris and said said Chris your definately out riding your bike and you should sell to me.

Johnny Branson is lying and I didn't buy no such thing.

man, now that sounds like an outright lie right there. i emailed tex and told him to keep an eye out for one for you. i'll see him sunday and mention it again. i dont know what to actually think of you on an rs125. it might be kind of disturbing. oh yeah, jb, ive been told youre too fat and too tall to ride an rs125. apparently if youre over 5'4", or more then 105 lbs, youre too big. now mary on the other hand....

JC,
Your momma doesn't think I'm too tall or fat!

They make "big man" parts for the RS. Zack is probably only a couple inches shorter than me and maybe 20 lbs lighter and he goes pretty good.

I wanna see the next incarnation of the RS125, supposedly Honda is dumping the 125 two stroke for a 250cc four valve single. Should be interesting.

Aaron,
Along with the steady move away from two strokes by the entire industry rumor has it that Honda plans a water cooled, 4 stroke, four or five valve 250cc single. Probably in the area of 40hp, probably a bit heavier than the RS. Think 1 cylinder MotoGP bike. I'm guessing a RR version of their CRF250R dirt bike engine.
Lap times might be on par with the RS considering the more usable powerband it's bound to have. I'd guess the price on new examples might be more than the RS due to the complexity of a four stroke.

I think they would have been better served to perfect 2 stroke direct injection. That's probably things are headed in the next ten years if anyone can truly perfect the system on something larger than a 50cc. Although Honda is not usually behind in any kind of technology so if they are going with four strokes it may be because they just don't think direct injection if feasible.

If MotoGP bikes are any indication, with 240hp/litre then you could see maybe 50-60 hp out of a 250 single four stroke. In a 180 lb package that would be some fun.
JohnnyB

PS. Just did a little research. The CRF250R dirt bike makes 42 rear wheel hp...figure if they used it in the RR bike they would give up some low end and probably get an easy 45hp. Most well tuned RS125 (2000 and later) make 44-48 hp. So it's a little heavier, about the same hp, but I figure with 4 stroke torque is a wash on the track.

I know you can't see anything around you cause your head is stuck in Chris's sphincter, but you might want to look in to the different years and what size clipons each used.

I will let you know what it comes with after tomorrow, I know it comes with rains and spares but that's all I know.

Damn I gotta get one. If your woman saw how huge I was she'd buy me two of them.

I could fit one inside each one of my giant balls.
