a group of friends and I are lookin to get some bikes to have fun on at the local kart track. the idea is something to ride on the weekends at the local kart track. We are trying to decide between "big" bikes or minis. we are trying to wiegh the cost, vs the fun.

does anyone have both full size and mini bikes?

Yup... My friend and I ride/race road bikes, dirt bikes and supermoto. We both, and all of our friends, LOVE to ride the CRF 50's with street tires. We put on our suits and gear and have at it for hours.. TONS of fun!!! And we have been using the same tires for years. LoL. Best part is a couple of cones or a cool parking lot, and you have a instant track!! :bannana:

My CRF100 cost a total of $1200 (bike, 16" wheel, tires) and it's some of the most fun I've had on a motorcycle.

I race a scooter in the F1 class at a local track, but just picked DRZ125L to run the F2 class. The XR100's are incredibly popular & extremely competitive in the F1 class.
I'd go that route if I had the cash.

I've road raced, mini raced, and just started on a big SM bike. I've been racing minis since 2004, and it's the most fun you can have on 2 wheels. If I'd started racing minis and graduated to a big road racer, I would've fared much better. You can learn soooooo much about carrying momentum, and corner speed. And don't think these little bikes don't pack enough wallop to get you in trouble, cuz they do!

since you're doing this with your buddies, evenly matched bikes are the way to go. i wouldn't go smaller than a crf150, otherwise sometimes it just feels like you're sitting around waiting to finally get to the next corner, but maybe that's because i'm coming from bigger bikes.

the most fun bike i've ridden at the track I think was a yz125sm, super tiny feeling but pushed hard you can take down plenty of drz riders.

the obvious advantage of a bike like wr250x or drz is that you also have a very fun/capable street bike, so take that into consideration.

edit: hell i don't know, they're all fun!

A fast mini. A built KLX110 will get the job done.....& I've seen those things hound the shit out of anything on the track! A built CR85 will do the same thing on 17" wheels.
