RMX #moto86 Winter Series Round 2 - 1/1/2021

This was my first race with my new bike, a 2021 YAMAHA YZ250F Monster Edition.  This has been a huge change from my other bikes, the 2005 HONDA CRF450R and the 2017 HONDA CRF450R. I'm trying to sell the 2017 if you're interested. It is "SCARY" Fast!!!😈💪💩

I felt really comfortable on the new bike but still need to practice more on it before making a difference.  I guarantee that you'll see a huge improvement on my lap times in the next race. My biggest problem was taking the wrong lines and was a little hesitant on the jumps not really knowing how to handle the difference in power from the 450 to the 250.


I used the 450 moto to just practice so I really didn't push myself.  My best lap time was in my second 250 moto which ended up with a 02:04.370.  I was also running 5th through 2 laps but picked some terrible lines with ruts that were really deep.  One rut my bike actually touched the front fender.  There were 4 big time sandbaggers in the 250 Beginners Class so if you take the cheaters out I feel like I had a great race this weekend. I ended up finishing 12th overall out of 32 riders; not bad for 1st Yamaha ride.
