Awesome! That place is about a mile from my work. I stopped over there to talk to them once at lunch, but they don't open until 4pm.

I noticed a CRF50 with slicks on it through the window, so I figured there might be some hope.

This is not good. It's already a challenge to make it through the winter without getting hurt ice riding and now I'm going to have to mix a little bar banging 'fiddy action in there too...

Dirtbiker may be interested in this, most likely in the winter.




I have a 05 klx110 on the chopping block if anyone's interested.

If it was reasonably priced I'd do this. league once a week at night in the winter would be awesome. I'd totally buy another fiddy for it

If this turns out I think we should all try to run stock 50's with the only mods being for adult setup, handlebar, front and rear springs and rear hand brake. Oh and of course no knobbies. TTR-50 or CRF/XR/Z50s. We gotta make it cheap but fun and I think a spec class would be the best way to go.

Might be safer too, but 88cc kits would be way more fun.

Too bad I sold my fiddy last week. It was all set up and ready to go for this

No big deal you can just pick another up in the fall. I may have to try a TTR-50 maybe work on getting a sponsor.

Right back at ya.
Have you been to an indoor go kart track? I think I would hurt myself with an XR100. Plus a lot of people outside of Supermoto already have 50's as pitbikes or playbikes so it would increase our numbers.

I got tied up yesterday so I couldn't call
I could use the +50cc's to catch up to you guys anyway
if the place is really tight the little wheel bikes do better.

I just got off the phone with them.
sounds like they are still in the planning stages.
they have existing go-karting and are looking to branch out to indoor mini's or an indoor dirt bike place.

I spoke with Oscar, and left my number. Seemed like a nice guy

Hope something comes of this.

While I would be more than happy to build another pitbike. I think it would start taking away some of the fun. I would prefer for all of us to, especially for the first year, to be out on equal machines with very few mods. That way the racing is tight, fun and cheap.

Indoor mini moto with a dirt section that would be the bomb! D give the guys my number and tell them to get in contact with me. I wouldn't mind setting up a winter league.

i like the almost stock idea. when I was done with my fiddy it would wheelie like mad in all 3 gears and did close to 50mph. Really was a handful and took some of the fun out of it. Stockers rule, basic 88 big bore at most.
