I remember when I took my grandson racing way back on the 50's (he is on 85/105 now) but he was nervous as heck, butterflies etc), and once the gate dropped, all felt good and he has been racing ever since. I hear some kids get so nervous, they get sick. Glad had fun, good family event. :smirk:

We were at a friends house and his son (6) was riding in front of my son on a 50 MA. The 6 yr old was hitting the jumps full tilt which gave my son the confidence to fall right in. hehe I guess he figured if he could do it so can I. :smirk:

My youngest does get nervous, till he is out there riding.

Nice to see the young generation out there enjoying the sport!

LOL, I do enjoy watching him ride almost as much as I enjoy riding...almost. hehe

IDK what it is about jumping that kids like so much, but he was hooked after only a few laps.

Better buy stock in a fork seal company. When my youngest started racing / jumping it became a monthly ritual to replace seals, but thinking back, he was riding green then so that might have been part of the problem :smirk:

Great pic Gmoss. You must be shooting with a decent camera to be able to count the holes in the sprocket and see the chain slack up like that. I don't think I've really noticed that in many DIY action shots.

HAHA, I wish. I missed lots of good shots. This is the only one I could time right. I took it with my phone, an Incredible. :smirk:

You are right. I enjoyed jumping cut banks as a kid. didn't have access to a moto track. Actually broke my wrist jumping an XL100 back in the day. :smirk:

As far as fork seals go, both were leaking when I bought it. I took a seal saver to them and they stopped. One was leaking again before this ride, cleaned it and it stopped again. They seem susceptible to getting trash in there.

Thanks nobrakes!
