Tell me Emig was on a '99 KX 250

He does have a Susp line for the KX now so I am sure he has to rip a 450 at press day

One of my top 5 favs Racers and how can you NOT love Fresno Smooth?

I was trying to get out there in January for a SX race and a day of riding but it fell through. We might do the outdoor opener weekend at Glen Helen instead and rent a bike for a day of riding. I would like to go somewhere this winter. Brad might be taking Club57to Georgia this winter. If he does, I might head down there for a few days.

Take care and ride safe,
Brian
