Maybe thats why I post here, so other people can make more sense than I am. I tend to get an idea in my head to do something and its hard to put on the brakes and see if its worth doing in the long run. UFRC, your right it sounds like my wife would say something like that. Maybe she's been subliminaly sending me those thoughts dang her lol. Im gonna keep the bike for now! I got a lot of stuff to do with the other bike in the mean time. Considering this is my main hobby, it makes more sense to have both a 1/5 and 1/4 bike for tracks just like rskip is talking about, where maybe a bigger 1/4 bike is less suited than 1/5. Yay me.

JohnnyMc, you've got a potential buyer for your bike here in Texas if/when you decide to let it go. I, too, would like to narrow it down to just 1 dirt bike that will hold up (if there is such a thing).

Dam, we are near mikes hobby shop in Porter Texas Ne of Houston about 30 mintues. We are talking about going to mikes for a F1 race in feb and bringing some bikes to play with. Do they have a large outdoor on road track besides the Indoor carpet? Also is it smooth like glass? A few of us are working on motard bikes to start racing, you should make it down here for next years schedule.

DFW Mike's has fun indoor dirt track, a nice outdoor dirt track, and a carpet track, they don't have a standard onroad track that I saw anyway, maybe out back, I didn't look behind the building. But that was about 7 months ago that I was last over there. May try and get over there when I am up for Christmas.

Figured you would like seeing your bike there. I told you with a crop and zoom that shot would be pretty good.

I can tell you guys that the next generation of the VMX will be stable enough you can race on typical indoor warehouse concrete its just a matter of a little more time. So hang in there and racing on tight tracks will become a reality very soon I can assure you.

Thats my little X_Mas gift...a little piece of mind that we have not forgotten our loyal customers and supporters and that we are working on the next evolution of the VMX to make it even better.
