    I was thinking the same thing. Is that a kiddie bike?

  6. the KX-85 has an 85cc motor. Its not your average sized dirtbike. It's really rather small compared to the ones you see running the super cross and arena cross events.
     
  7. That still doesn't explain why they sell such big helmets. :D
     
  8. Maybe its not really large helmets they sell...maybe its really small riders :eek:

    Most of the time you see 125cc in supercross. A 125cc bike is just a little bigger. But dont be fooled by this bikes size, i popped a wheelie in 3rd gear on accident. And yes that kid is 9 and way to small for the bike. He has to stand on a picnic bench to get on it. :D

    I'd love a dirt bike to ride around on my land. It's great terrain for dirt bike riding. Currently I drive 4-wheelers or my Xterra out there but it's kind of hard to do jumps and stuff in either of those...although I did get some nice air once in my aunt's Cadillac CTS.

    EDIT: just kiddin' about the Caddie...it wouldn't survive on that terrain.

    Why's it hard to jump a 4 wheeler? Or your Xterra for that matter? I've jumped many a 4 wheeler, in very recent memory. And I went airborne a few times in my '84 Ford Bronco II 4x4. Now that was excitement :D
     
  17. is he eating a bag of jellybeans? And whats that all over his face. ...stupid kid...

    It's not hard to jump and I usually do like to hit jumps on our smaller 4-wheeler (Kawasaki Bayou 220) however it's not exactly a dirt bike as far as speed and maneuverability go. It will jump but it's not really made to and I think if I did it constantly it would cause mechanical problems. The one that I usually drive though, for comfort and power reasons is our Kawasaki Prairie 300, which is a much bigger bulkier thing that usually nose-dives when you go airborne. Also it has an automatic transmission so you don't have the ability to drop down into a lower gear right before jumps for that little burst of speed. The suspension on both of these 4 wheelers is not made for jumping. We could buy one that has that sort of suspension but I don't think I would use it often enough for that to be practical. I think I'll probably get a dirt bike down the line some day.
