    Clean, used YZ as they havenít changed in years and lots of parts available as well as the great forks. Or 150SX cuz itís fast and who doesnít love a new bike. Oh well thereís my useless suggestion. Nothing like watching a you tube of villipoto on a 125 or any other pro who only knows the throttle as an on/off switch.

    Not yet... next month I have to pick a day to go poke at them. Should I instead plan for multiple people to come with me and drool?

    Did you get your 200RR from After Hours? He found me on Thumpertalk, seems like a nice guy, mentioned he could get a EN144 demo...

    In the mean time Clinton found https://www.facebook.com/groups/1468...93513130879149

    Only 200mi away... I should dig up the year to year changes to see what the 2017 might be 'lacking'.

    Steve at After Hours did my fork tube anodizing and rear shock work ... also have purchased parts through him over the years ... great guy, glad you could connect.

    i bought the 200RR through Dave at Motoworx who has now partnered with Monty's for Beta sales. (Rob at Motoworx decided to not renew his building lease and will only do suspension out of his garage.)

    wish i knew more about the TMs to help, but i do not.

    The 2020 Beta 250/300 get counter balanced engines and the RR racing model get KYB suspenders. I have the itch to buy something lately, and the riding i've been doing lately is a lot less trails and way more MX. I was leaning towards a 250 husky or another KTM, but an XC, but this has me thinking.

    Re: Kool-aide flavor fight

    Went with more Team Orange in the garage, picked up a new 2019 KTM 150SX today. Interesting to see all the goodies KTM bundles with the bike that I never got with my used katooooms: Loads of jets and an alternate needle, a tiny allen wrench that I need to find what it's used for, a full KTM notepad and pen, spoke wrench, air pump for the forks, etc. Not sure I'll make it through the suggested break in, 5 hours before I can go WOT?!
