250 I am a YZ Whore-der

I love all of it. Street, MX, single track goat trail, Jeep trail.. if I’m on 2 wheels I’m happy.

That tree is bigger than it looks!
 
I'm really just all about the jumps. I've always been in love with air time, whether it was bmx/freestryle as a kid, pole-vaulting on the track team, dive team, trampolines, downhill skiing...I love getting off the ground.
I love the timing of it all, it requires you to be perfect. And that fits nicely with my perfectionist attitude.
 
Mine has always been speed, but now I am to old for air time or speed. Don't think I could do the Kamikaze downhill at Mammoth in less than 6 minutes like I did 20+ years ago on a MTB. Back then the pros we're pulling 5:36, and I did it in 5:53 as my best.
 
I dont know that I ever could have done that.
As an aside, just watched a video of Jeremy McGrath at Mammoth last month, tearing it up on a KX500 and a 450, maybe a 125 too. I bet he cant do the Kamikaze in less than 6 either, but he sure ripped it up good.
 
Still have not fixed my issues.

Had the Honda since new but did the CR USD forks conversion, and a Works rear shock. Fun bike for the kids transition from all the CRF 80/100/150’s as they grew up to handle 2 strokes. KX60 came with a YZ125/250 purchase for free, no title. But it’s fully rebuilt now and a little canyon ripper for those days you just wanted to piss off the neighbors on a bike you can carry under your arm and over fences.
