I rode motocross plus, trials for qiute a few years got pretty good could have went some where with it. But I'm with the others 2 strokes make sick power that's the reason Carmicheal never rode a 4 stroke he was one of the nastiest riders in history! Mike Larrocco best I ever seen on a 500. That guy was isane fast on one almost super human! 500 2 stroke there is'nt a human on earth that can take an advantage of the full power they produce. I rode one once draged a 600 4 stroke by third gear he was sucking chunks.OH YES thay are !!! My son has a CRF 250R and it doesn't even seem to be half as fast as my 450 ?? I can jump on it, twist the grip and give it hell from 1st to 5th gear.. Then jump on my 450 twist the grip and about kill myself by 3rd !!
Honestly I can't believe how fast my 450 is and it's pretty much stock too.... SJ
Yeah I think I know what you mean sometimes. No doubt its a kick ass sport I miss it and hope to one day ride again. I may get my son one and chose to get one for myself as well.Oh trust me the pain hasnt been temporary its been getting worse as i get older lol, but i just cant give it up yet!
Pretty much what I did at one time. I mean rode in the intermediate classes. When and if I do decide to ride again I will ride woods and trails with a few jumps in the mix. Motocross takes great skill and endurance that some people don't have. And last but certianly not least balls another thing some people don't have.I raced motocross seriously (Intermediate class) until 4 yrs ago
(I am 37 now) I have had 2 neck surgeries and two shoulder surgeries trying to repair the damage I did from my last race. I would love to get back on a bike (don't think I will ever be able to). I still have a practice track on 11 acres and coaching my son now who is riding the 85 class.

Its funny people that have never raced do not understand how physical it is and how much endurance it take to go 5,6,7 laps at a mx race wide open. I have had people think its easy and say here ya go try it, let see you do it lol
He also raced a CRF450 for a year or 2 before he left honda. He is the best and could win on anything but every interview I have ever seen him in he has said that the 4 stroke has way to much of an advantage of two strokes to not ride one against two strokes.But he did'nt want to Suzuki pushing him to. Because back when the 4 stroke movement started he was still on a 2 stroke and the goat was beating everyone like a drum.
