Ok, I just got a KX250, picked up some awesome Gaerne SG-10s, got an Acerbis Kotera compression suit, and now just need pants, jersey, and dirt helmet/goggles. I went over budget on the boots (still a good deal), but I think they are what is most important, got a great deal on the compression suit too!

Sooooo....It's actually been about 15 years since I've been on a dirt bike, so I need to start slow and put-put around. I'm very open to pointers and lessons from anyone. I know the KX is a lot of bike, but I do road race, and I think I do have some good throttle control skills, so that should help. Anyone wanna help out a dirt newbie?

Have fun, and I wouldn't worry too much about throttle control, I would concentrate on clutch control. Try to get in to the habit of using it make the power delivery smother.

LOL, the tail is fine, i'm just too fat! I sitting around 210, however, I have a goal of 170 by spring, so the tail will be good after!

Its a 2000, and when all was said and done with a tonne of work, thanks to Bill and Cherie at 5th gear, it came to $3500 including Bill's work. Bike is freakin brand new again!

When you reach your goal, I'll buy your compression suit.

Sweet ride, momentum is your friend. Lets see your throttle control in the Whoops!
