Re: Western North Carolina Riders!

sorry, did not get it, seems there were a few extra characters added to my link, wasn't paying attention when i posted it,
anyhow, it gave me a little time to do some more research and decided to buy a new GP-MX3 as my first, then make any mods over time

Ok sounds like a plan. I have my x7 still with the stock motor. If you want to do some practicing.Also if you have a good size lot around your area. I can take the ride to your neck of the woods also.

I'm a young man trapped in a old man's body.But i guess some people would call that immature.

Re: Western North Carolina Riders!

I might try to get out for some practice this up coming weekend. As far as the other guys they gave up a while ago. One guy moved back to texas, the other guy lived in Va. I haven't spoken to him in years which is a shame. Because we always would travel to the races in Ga together.He would drive down to my house the we'd take my van and go. We were like teammates. Then the last guy which lives down the road from the lot we practice at. His bike wouldn't start and he didn't have the funds to fix it. Till this day I haven't heard from him either.
So I was thee last man standing and still racing these China mids.lol everybody else have fell to the way side.
Here's a vid of one of the lots I practice at.

Re: Western North Carolina Riders!

swheels...Just wanted to say THANKS for letting me come out and check out your bikes. I was pretty impressed with what you showed me and answered a lot of unanswered questions I had. While I still have my heart set on getting a 2 stroke cag, I'm hoping that sometime in future I'll be able to get my hands on one of those 110's. Anyways, I had a lot of fun and hope to get out there again vary soon.

Hey no problem bro! Pleasure was all minds... gave me a reason to get out of the house. I'm always willing to ride when scheduling allows me to.

Re: Western North Carolina Riders!

Sorry everyone but I need to vent, MINIPOCKETROCKET.COM just screwed me. Ordered a fairing kit from them and apparently they changed the design so the new fairing doesn't fit the way it's supposed to and only half of the original hardware will work . I could send it back but shipping fees are NOT REFUNDABLE which would be a whopping $12.95 refund which won't even cover the return shipping. My only other option it to start cutting and try to make it fit.
Again sorry about the rant, time to file a complaint with the BBB (not that anything will come of it)
