Haha, no problem, send them my way. I'm more than happy to share my vast knowledge and experience. It should take only about 3 minutes to teach him everything I think I know.

No "B" class for me just yet. I doubt I'll do a thread this year anyway. Time for another old noob to take up the mantle.

The 2010 "C" Class was a heck of a ride! Thanks for taking us along, I wish we had some sort of circuit over here, instead it's three "Must Do" events on three different islands with lots of local trail rides in between.

Thanks, Southeast. It was a great experience, very challenging, and a lot of fun.

Thanks for the bump Tbone,I read this thread (and yours) front to back the other day.Went out in the garage and just stared at my lowly busted up CR250R.

I've started to tear into the motor,it needs alot!

Maybe a couple bucks at a time and I can hit the trails next summer and see if I feel up to a race in the real old guys class (i'm 55)
