Dirt Bike’s Test Report

Been a busy week, testing, testing and more testing. Our days have been filled with loading and unloading off road 450’s, eight of them to be exact. Adam’s Sprinter has been pumping black smoke, pulling around six motorcycles while Tom’s big beast of Nissan has been busting at the tailgate with a minimum of three big beasts. Spent Thursday at Glen Helen where their staff is busy getting ready for the GP and it looks like they are going to build a track that might scare the euros right out of the States.  We picked up our new YZ125 from the crew at Yamaha, slapped an FMF pipe on it and did some laps in preparation for the two stroke nationals coming up Sunday. Mark Tilley came out with a DRD pipe for our RM-Z250 so we spun even more laps on our little 250F before heading out into the hills to do more 450 off road testing for our comparison. Saw the KTM crew out testing on the new KTM’s, which had linkage and looked pretty trick. Here’s a photo report showcasing our endeavors.
