I was going to attend the Ridesmart Track Day at Texas Motor Speedway on July 11. Well somehow I cut my rear tire on something and had to sit it out.

I was totally amazed by this guy riding a RS125 just carrying so Much corner speed. He would pass 2-3 people on the straits and they would finally catch up before the corners and he would zip off. I just could not believe he was on a 125 he carried speed like he was on a 250.

I was schooled and didn't even ride. :spank

Aprilia 125 or Honda 125? It's crazy how fast those Hondas are, their 125's run with my Aprilia RS250 because they've got about 40hp and weigh in the sub-200lb range if I remember correctly. Yeah, can't wait to get my 250 GP bike next year! WOOT!

If the track is more technical with shorter straights, put a good rider on a 125 and he/she will be passing the b***** bikes with no problem.
Had a track day this past Sunday and there was a RS125 there spanking some of the litre bikes. Everyone was trying to keep up with him, caused a Ducati 996 to go down cause the rider was trying to catch up to the 125.

Good God yes, I recall reading a article on Hondas 250 GP bike Rossi won on and it was simply mind boggling. well over 100HP with 198lbs..... and people wonder why the 2 strokes are not competive these days.... no one can handle the power delivery Quote from Kenny Roberts circa aprox 1980... The Yamaha TZ 750 is such a brutal bike no human can even come closse to using even 1/2 of its power...... OMG a 4 cylinder stroker 750 works bike Geeeeezus help us... son of a bitch musta changed the earths rotation when wicked on like the old Saturn 5 rockets they actualy affected the rotation of the planet when lifting off.....
