General Two Stroke Talk / Re: New Project 04 RM 125 Barn find
« Last post by eprovenzano on August 22, 2017, 09:20:10 AM »
In an effort to move out of dad's basements...  my son decided he really needed the cash vs. an extra bike.  He listed the RM and was able to sell it rather quickly. The new owner was happy to see where we dismantled the engine and other vital bits so he could see the condition of the engine.  He was also happy to see the all parts were bagged and tagged...  Where we could, all fasteners were put back where they came from...  that's my standard rule... if possible put the nuts and bolts back where they came from...  less chance of something coming up missing... 

Sad to see the bike go, but happy to know that it's going to someone who will get it going again, and also my son will put the money towards the required deposits to rent a little house...  he preferred to rent something with a basement so he can wrench on his bike during his down time... 

YES DREAMS DO COME TRUE... He may actually move out some day....  ;D

Hopefully it happens, that would be really cool to see. Though I don't live close to a track here. in PA there were no SX's close, but I was close to 2 before Steel City got cut. Here in TX I am close to an SX but not an outdoor.

cool parts: kept it short (under 3min), variety of clips and the amazing sound. Not cool parts: The pissing scene (Gay)
Overall very good, I would throw in some bikini clad babes before and at ending credits (make it a happy ending)

I agree with RacerX I enjoyed it... although I thought he pissing scene was pretty funny...  and as we all know RacerX is always looking for a happy ending...   ::)

On a side note... My buddy's  who rode the KX125...  could be heard laughing his butt off while piloting the KX around the track...  He's a staunch 4 stroke rider... he grew up on smokers, but drank the koolaid and was hooked... he was having a ball trying to get the 125 to do what he wanted it to do...  he's had several bikes over the years, mostly strokers... He mentioned yes he needs to get a bike, but this time he's thinking a 250 smoker...   :o  I was in shock...  he's gone from 250's to 450's back to 250 strokers, had 125's and 250 smokers...  but to hear him even consider a smoker... I almost fell down. 

Not to mention... he's an MX'er... really doesn't like the woods...  At my riding club, they held a Full Gas Sprint Enduro a month ago..  they made a lot of changes / additions to the trail system... When I took him out to the trails, He loved it.. we were able to ride at a very quick pace through the woods.  He was amazed as to what they did, how tight some parts were, while others were wide open...  he loves the big jumps, but really enjoyed clipping the bars of the trees... 

It was a good day for everyone.  8)

I finally got one of my buddies out after a 2 year hiatus... He normally rides a KX125, but his some was coming along (he's currently bikeless).  So I had his son ride the KX, and had my buddy ride my 91 KDX.  Not riding for two years will really put you out of bike shape, so it was slow going... My son followed us into the woods, he quickly realized it was going to be a a slow pace so he passed us and continued on his merry way... 

In the beginning he commented that the KDX doesn't have the kick of his KX and it seems a bit slowl... yep that's right... but it tackled every obstacle without fail.  The one long hill climb he was unable to clear, he was able to get the bike into an place where he could start it, point it up the hill, let the bike find traction and it tractored up the hill.  He was amazed how the bike could find traction in some very slippery conditions... places where the KX125 would have been screaming and spinning, the KDX calmly motored along...  I believe he's thinking a good winter project may be to find and build a KDX...  He told one of his buddies we need to go riding and I have the perfect bike for you...  This is exactly why I built this bike...  as a buddy bike to get friends and family onto two wheels and enjoy a day in the dirt.

I love to take it out as to me (I'm used to big bores) I keep thinking OK were's the rest of the power... oh that's all there is  ;D  After riding a 300 and now a 380 when I get on a small bore bike, I have a full grin...  Nothing like twisting the throttle and using everything you have to get the bike to do what you want... 

As for my buddy on the 150, when we were looking for a 150, we were also looking for a KTM 200...  He loves the 150 though...  he's very happy he listened to this old mans advice for once...  :o  He's such a smooth rider, that he makes it look effortless...  When I'm sucking for air, or have arm pump, he's continues to just cruise by just enjoying life on the 150...
