    Newbie to mx

    Hey all....I got a 2004 yzf 250 last yesterday and took it to a practice track today and man am I hooked! , I started off pretty slow but towards the end of the day I could pin it off the tabletops and clear some of the doubles, but I got lapped by most of the riders on the track but I wasnt the slowest! , but i ran into a few problems after about 3/4 laps my fingers ache really badly and its gets really hard to keep hold of it! I tryed to grip the bike with my legs and lossen my grip on the handlebars but it doesnt seem to help much, any tips for stoping this maybe there are some exersies I can to to built my finger mucles up? and is it me or can the gear leaver be really hard to find when you need it?

    Newbie question (sorry!)

    Hi....This might sound like a real newbie question but I have the chance to buy a brand new 2005 yz450 out of a crate for £2800 ($5,150). I just wondered how will it compare to a 2001 wr426 with all the yz mods? and im intrested in starting motocross and I know that a 125/250f is probley a good bike to start out on but this deal is too good to miss! btw im 18 years old and weigh 11 and a half stone if that makes any differnce! Thanks in advance!
