hello people

i was wondering why so many of you supermoto mini riders go with a ttr125? The kx, yz, and cr are all reeeealy fast bikes and you can run them almost compleatly stock. a rider in the supertt circuit who placed second runing was 1.12 lap times on a husky 450cc and gess what that was the average lap time for the 85cc two stroke class. plus most of you ttr riders use are supension so why not just use the whole bike?

thanks for your help

i have a ttr125le that's done up. i can only speak for myself and why i 'mini street tarded it. i have absolutely no racing aspirations (but the local series allows me to run up to a 160cc engine ( ) in the mini-class). this is the seventh bike that i've owned. turns out i like to tinker with engines and wheels and i really don't ride farther than the local coffee shop or mall. i wanted a super light bike to play in traffic, be able to use all the gears to redline (unlike a sport bike where redline in third is in the 'loss your licence' catagory on just about any road), and it is easier to make a 4 stroke street electric start street legal then a 2 stroke. i also wanted a street bike that i was pretty sure i wouldn't see another of in a parking lot (i hate getting lost in the mass of sport bikes and cruisers with racing pipes for individuality). the bike may be slow, but i'm grinning silly big every time i bounce a shift off the rev limiter. this bike is the most fun i've ever had riding on the street.

:D :D :D
