I also have a bike similar to your "Monster Kawasaki" (sry to make fun of you but as a racer we have to make fun of gooners that say things like that ). I have a Suzuki RMZ 250, been racing since I was 8 (1999)

Fair enough lol. Either way I'd try not to do that too terribly often.

Exhaust is a 4" MBRP Turbo back, I installed it myself, has a AFE Stage 2 Intake, ARP head studs, and the head was cleaned up at 100k. Edge chip with all thte gages and tuner.

LOL the bike. I've been riding since I was young, and I have no idea why I called it that I know what you mean, its a poser thing to say. Maybe because we're on a landscape forum so I was trying to relate to those who don't have a riding background. I don't race but there is a track we used to ride at every now and again. The KX-F was a trade in on a quad we had. That KX-F had a full Hindle exhaust and race-tuned suspension along with a 270 bore kit. Most of the bike was aftermarket and it was super fun to ride. I started on 86' Honda 50 and have had a DS80, YZ and Cr 85, a KX100, KTM 125, 2001 CR 250! Its a great hobby, but it came with injuries so I opted out of it for 4 wheels. What class do you race in? We're going to the AMA Supercross in Toronto in March!

Lol now I understand your reasoning. My bike is bone stock besides bars and sprockets & chains. Spending the money for exhaust and everything isn't worth it kuz you don't use the power unless your top 3 @ Lorretas speed, nor is it in my budget right now lol. I race C class, top 5 usually when I do race, which isn't too often nowadays. Me and my family would do 20+ races a year when I was 11-17 yrs old as well as my younger bros that are 3 & 4 yrs younger than me. Still have all our bikes and toy hauler tho!

I've had my fair share of injuries also. Dislocated my right shoulder into my back, cracked the humerous, and got knocked out all in the same crash back in 2004. Shoulder hasn't been the same since. Then in 2007 I broke my right thumb. As well as a few concussions.

I've had a 1999 LEM LX2 Super 50 (Italian brand), that was my first bike. Then a KX 60 in 2000-2001 then a KX 65, 2002-2003 then multiple Suzuki RM 85s (from 03-07) and now my current, Suzuki RMZ 250.

That should be sick, we have arenacross in Minneapolis at the end of February. Nothing compared to sx but at least its racing you can watch in person. I go to millville for the week every year for the pro national, hands down the best week/wknd of the year!

Wow, sounds like quite the background. I always wanted to race when I was younger, the atmosphere at the track always seemed like such a cool thing. I'm more for having fun than competition though so I never got serious about it.

My brother crashed while we were riding a few years back and had 3 broken ribs, punctured lung and spleen, and the vertebrates in his back broken and that kinda scared me away

I'd love to see your toy hauler though! If you have any pictures?

Back again in my Landscape Design course, I must say that I do like what I'm learning so far. It gives me a new perspective on design, from my peers and instructor.

Please delete previous post, I edited that one but took too long.

I love my classes (landscape) at the school I'm going to. I look forward to school every day, no joke lol.
Big injuries like that are the only thing that can scare me into quitting. Did you hear what happened to Trey Canard this wknd @ L.A. supercross?

And yeah the atmosphere at the track is awesome, especially back when I was younger, hanging out on Saturday evening into the night after Saturday morn-afternoon practice, it was practically heaven, just chill as ****. And I'm competitive as hell so the more bikes and faster guys the better. Nothing gets your blood pumping more than being on the starting line waiting for the previous race to get done, then the white checkers comes out for the winner, red light turns on (or 2 min board depending on what track your at), bikes get fired up, a minute or so later, yellow light (30 second board), green light (board sideways), then 30-40 4 strokes wide open and the gate drops. There isn't a better sound in the world either. Sry for the rant but its pretty frickin awesome haha.

Yeah I got some of it. ill PM em to ya when I go on my computer, out plowing now. I got a couple on my fbook page too if ya wanna see some there too.

JContracting- I'd love to have that feeling, the races are cool I'll agree with you. Yeah and shoot me up a PM. What did happen to Trey Canard?


Glenn Lawn Care- My mom's a bus driver, it stays at the house...

Quick quote from one of the notes we got in class, I thought it was cool: "One of the goals of effective landscaping is to draw attention to the house (or building) in much the same way that an attractive frame enhances a picture."
