    Pre race anxiety

    How do you guys get over pre-race anxiety? Every time a race is coming up about a week before hand I start to get anxious. I start thinking about everything that could go wrong. Like what if i case a jump in front of everybody that i know or i get a bad start and finish last. I am comfortable riding in front of people but when it comes to a race i feel like im going to look like a goon. I really want to go to this race but i keep trying to talk myself out of going at the same time. Its the local county fair mx race and Im a C class rider and dont want to make a fool out of myself

    First "bad" wreck

    The only reason i haven't gone yet is because from what ive read it doesn't seem to be severley bad. I never threw up, and made myself stay up for 8 hours after. I had jelly legs for the rest of the night but my legs and knees are also covered in bruises. It's been 2 days now and i'm still finding bruises i didn't know i had

    First "bad" wreck

    Heres some background, im 18, ride a cr250r, and am a c class rider. I was riding at a private track yesterday, one i am very comfortable on. It was freshly tilled, packed, and the track was just drying from a light rain.. It was good and tacky. I was riding and came around the last corner before the finish lline jump, (nothing big, its kinda built like a wedge with the down slope for a landing) i came at it fifth gear wide open like i normally do, As i came into the air i noticed i was starting to nose dive and gave it some gas but it was too late. I endod and went over the bars and face planted. From this point on for a solid 2 or 3 minutes i dont remember anything but from what everybody tells me i didnt know where i was or what was happening but i never actually completely knocked myself out. I got it all on go pro which made for one hell of a video!! I didn't go to the hospital but from what ive read on google ive got a concussion. Walked away with one hell of a headache and alot of bruises. When i hit the groud and faceplanted head first i honestly think the only thing that save me was my neckbrace. Without it i think it would have been alot worse. The worst ive ever ate it is just laying it over.. this one was bad and kinda shook me up a little.. but i figured, why quit, shit happens, i need new bars now but atleast thats the only thing i need to fix. Tried to get on the bike today but i was too sore to even get it started.. Let's hear your guys first "bad" wrecks!

    Buying a bike to flip

    I think thats a great idea. I've been doing it for the last year. I've owned atleast 60 bikes in the last year. my most recent purchases were a 08 crf250r that i bought for 1300 and sold few days later for 2000. and last week i bought a kx500 for 1400 and sold it this weekend for 1800. I'm 17 and this is my main source of income. i just scrub the crap out of em, change the oil, tighten the spokes, somtimes adjust the chain and then sell them. I search craigslist and find a screaming deal then buy it and repost it a couple days later. So far i haven't lost any money yet

    2 stroke no power

    Im not sure i dont have the tools to test it. But it feels like has quite a bit of compression

    2 stroke no power

    Have a 06 suzuki rm125 with 25hrs on a full rebuild. It starts first kick and idles great but when i ride it it has absolutely no power. It revs up just fine all the way through the gear but i cant even feel the powerband. It cant even get the front tire off the ground in 1st gear. I have a cr125 and this has maybe half of the power my cr does. Does it need a new top end already? What causes it to do this?
