I usually go to Croom.

I've heard of that place in Holopaw but I've never been there.

There's an area near the 4 corners off of 27 that I've been to but it's not as fun as Croom.

MX, eh Randy? Never hit a dedicated MX track with a bike before.

I'd like to try out the YZ at Croom before I hit a MX track with it. I'm thinking the YZ is set up for woods instead of MX.

Bithlo is a lot like crooms with the sand except they water it down for dust. The track is really easy and safe, all the jumps are table tops so no need to worry about coming up short. As for bike set up I can help you with that. You mainly just need to set up the rear sag which you should do anyways and that takes 10mins or less. For the rest of the suspension you will probably just come out a couple of clicks on the rebound. The one good thing about Bithlo, the practices are broken up between the fast riders and everyone else. I'll be on the crf450x anyways since I sold the KTM and you had jumped on Johno bike before I could even open my wallet. You got a sweet deal.
