MX!

Postby pingvin » Fri Mar 30, 2012 9:56 am

Need to do some moto cross riding if ever going to be any good in off road. Problem with Norway is it's illegal riding outside roads and it's strictly enforced and VERY expensive getting caught :( So mostly gravel roads with 530, which is fun, but don't help my offroad abilities very much.

We do have som enduro tracks but none very close and they're very technical...just to difficult for me :oops: MX on the other hand is normal, closest track is 5min from my house and have another one 20min away. Could use the 530 for mx and have tried it. But it's an expensive bike with lights and plates so trying to look after it a bit.

So me and a buddy bought a Suki 250 4T mx bike today. 2006 model but only done 5hrs..looks like new! Still OE tyres and chain, only paid 2.350 euros :shock: Hope next post won't be from hospital bed...

Stop posting pics like this! [-X

You're making me want to get another dirt bike (after more years than I care to admit to).

Been riding twice in a week (and plan on going saturday as well), lucky to have 2 mx tracks close, one 30min and one in my town just 5min from my house. Not the quickest out there but good fun...haven't crashed...yet :)
