Lucky for me, it took only about 40 Open races to make Expert, and after that, nobody enforced it for different sized bikes, so I just transferred to 125 and 250.
Vet is safe racing, OldTimers safer, at 55.
Lee I got to talk to Broc Glover and he said I should take a test ride on a 2013 KX450F before buying the KX500AF since I never rode a 4 stroke. I will test ride the new 450f but I kinda have my heart set on a torque monster. 57hp @ 11500rpm vs 70hp @6000rpm plus 18 pounds lighter. I just love the smell and sound of a 2 stroke.
