bring it. we can watch you crash into the trees and stream with it. think the max speed was about 25mph, 2nd and 3rd gear was plenty fast around aarons place on the xr100s. i rode the 200 around. you really couldnt jump it over the jump too well because of its size. i mean youd fly over, but it was soo big you couldnt get it spun easy enough for the next corner whihc is pretty close. i see alof of cr125's, i think theyd be too big to be honest with ya. itd be all first gear.

but buy it and bring it.

Actually I like the looks of that new CRF150 Expert...too big? I got my size to take into account. Or I could go for a regular CRF150, or a modded XR100...with some bigger wheels and shit.

My brothers crf150 would suit you just fine. Hes a bigger boy and it rips him around no problem. Much bigger and roomier nike then the 100.

the 150r is a hotrod. ive been looking at them but theyre a bit on the pricey side for just bombing around the trails in my opinion. 4200 for the r and 4400 for the expert msrp. itd be cool to have dual disks though. they are waay bigger then the 100's. im trying to find something around an 03 or so 100. they can be had for about 1200. the 150 seems heavier and the suspension is alot softer (wheelie problems??) so its a nicer bike bike for the trails. i think if you stiffened up the rear shock, theyd wheelie as easily as the 100's do. it might not be that they are heavier, just the shock sucks up so much that its had to tell.

Those TTR-125-L's are nice bikes too. I know you're a honda guy, but Yami makes a pretty keen playbike too. I feel like the TTR is a bit lighter than the CRF150. Maybe?

I got nothing against Yama's, my first two bikes were Yamahas. Quality easily equal to Honda in most cases I think.

I noticed the Honda website listed the CRF150 Expert at 165 lbs !
Man...that seems light.
What small bikes do you fit on well enough to ride in the dirt?

PS. Make that the 07 CRF150R I was looking at...wow, mean little bike, big flat flat slide carb, four valves etc. Also about $4,200.

And yeah..the Yama is about 40+ lbs lighter than the regular CRF150.

I was suprised that I fit on the TTR125 reasonably well. It was still small, but was bigger than the XR100. And had a decent motor.

the yamaha also has less power. according to what ive read. they say a mildly hopped up xr100 will outrun a ttr. you can get the suzuki in black.

Johnny,
I would say you would fit on either a TTR-125 or a CRF-150. I think the CRF is a little more spacious, but as mentioned before, a little heavier. The TTR seemed like it had higher pegs, and was a little more nimble. I think if Unga fits on the TTR then you probably would; you're not much taller, if at all, are you?

Joe,
What Suzuki?

The TTR 125 is a little heavier then an xr100, the crf150 (trail bike) is exactly a Donald heavier then my hundred. The TTR is also much roomier then the xr100 but I assumed for developement reasons the 150 has more to gain and Branson would be all over that instead. I love the TTRs but they come a little lean on jetting, the front ends are a bit soft, and right fron the factory come geared to quick. The 150 has a weak front end but not quite as week as the ttr, the power delivery feels smooth but doesn't feel likek it has any low end uuumph, but everyone that drove it seemed to go pretty well on it.

just went up to woodys to look at the yammys.

the 125 is either disk front or drum front. (both are drum rears)

What do you think about the drum fronts?

Scott,
Just so you know. I'm trying to get a go kart track for next year in Maine to start a mini motard series.
