i gotta throw a prop out to aaron. man, i love this little bike. i did my clutch yesterday and finally got the rev box in. im lazy, what can i say. i set up chris' bike with a new brake perch and throttle cable and tuned it. the thing runs great. and talk about revvy. anyway, this thing is so fun. i would have never bought one if it hadnt been for the barn party a couple of years ago. everyone should buy one. so much fun stuff you can do with them.

any of you guys have the bbr cradle?? other than rob? ive been reading i should have it for the motor. since the frame gets tweaked. god this little bike is fun.

Yeah, XR100's rule. We got my son's for him when he was 11, for $700. We did the top end on it, added an XR's Only exhaust and a 16" front wheel, and proceeded to flog it through two full seasons of flattracking, plus another five seasons of pitbike, yard racing, ice racing and occasional flattrack racing.
Then we put the original front wheel back on and we've been racing around the yard at just about every opportunity we can.
We've also had more people take their first ride on a motorcycle ever, on this bike, than I can count.
It's pretty worn out.

I've been inspired by Aaron and some other peeps that have backyard tracks, to extend my own backyard track some more. It used to be literally just in the grass yard. Now I've cleared some of the woods on either side of the yard, still on my property, and I've added some obstacles, (logs) into the mix. It's about 3/10ths of a mile according to my bike computer. Woods, grass, dirt, logs, mud, leaves, climbs and descents. Sort of a mini enduro track.
It's pretty cool, I can rip around for as long as I want. The neighbors can't complain as long as it's during the day, we sometimes have to listen to their dogs bark all day, but I just smile.

i just found out they run indoors at the local indoor gocart track. its the same kind of place as that place that used to be near boston. the f1boston place. 4 hours in the morning for like 40 bucks. i dunno if im ever actually going to do it, as its kind of a pain the ass to get there, but just something for you boston locals to think about.

my arms and neck are pretty sore today. i think from having all those branches smacking into my helmet and face. i think going up that steep hill works your arms.
