    Any mx schools?

    it's going to be well worth it for you to drive alittle further for quality instruction.i just got back from garys april class(i live in michigan)and i have no doubts that i'll go next year.i'm sure after his class you'll not be so concerned about the 6 hours.
  7. i just got back from garys moto cross school. when i first signed up i had my doubts about going,becouse it's been 25 years since i had a dirt bike. i was concerned about my lack of riding time and if peer pressure would come into play,when it came to riding. all i have to say is regardless of your ability, this is a great school to attend.(even though we got rained out on sat.) gary is a great instructor and a great rider. never demanding more than what your willing to attempt. there were some very good riders,all seemed more than willing to help if you needed anything.if anyone is even thinking about going to a school to sharpen and hone there skills,or to learn the proper technique i highly recommend this class.
  8. could anyone help me with a source that would have a chain and sprocket set for a 2002 426.i cecked rocky mountain and there sold out,along with motosport outlet.i'm just looking for stock sprockets and an X chain.thanks.
