    What'd you do? break a bone or tear a ligament? That looks like it hurt a little.

    My friend broke his heel, heel bone and had about the same amount of screws in it, they have to stay in there.

    yea we dont get all the smog crap that cali and some other states get but i opened up the air box a little bit and took the baffle out of the exhaust. it makes a lil louder but not like the big bores. ive riddin a lot of bikes and its by far the most nimble and best handling stock bike i have owned. plus i got a smokin deal on it ($2500) when my bro inlaw went to iraq in 04 right after he bought it brand new.

    Not bad, my good friend that I ride with all the time has an 06 KTM SX250F, Ive rode it and in the tight woods its hard to ride, its like a 125 two-stroke, you have to really keep it in the power band to stay moving, I prefer the tractor like motor on big bores, put it in third and go. :D

    i definatly like it to but once you ride a bike like this with a rekluse clutch with the clutch converted to the rear brake and the compression release converted to the clutch...your in heaven and you never go back. its fuckin amazing

    Never rode a bike with the auto clutch, they do seem to be the ticket though.

    It would be weird not having an engine brake though, would take some getting used to.
