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.

PIVOTRAX MX TIRES

 WOW! I just received my first PIVOTRAX MX tire today and should be getting the other tire sometime tomorrow when I get home from school.  I'm going to try to get them mounted before this weekend.  I'm totally excited to try these out.  They sound amazing!  ...and they sent them to me just to try them out; okay, I can do that.😏



THE PIVOTRAX TIRE STORY
PIVOTRAX is born from Apexway Products Corp., a Taiwanese company with more than 40 years of experience on the tire industry.

This year we have decided to go a step further and design motocross tires especially for you. It is our enthusiasm and passion what drives us to do what we are good at.

THE PIVOTRAX PROMISE TO EVERY DIRT BIKE RIDER
We’re determined to bring you across all tracks you choose to tread. We don't plan on changing the way you ride. Rather, we are giving you a better way to conquer unknown terrains every time you start your engine.

Our tires have been designed to endure the uncertainty and harshness of dirt bike racing. Grip, traction, balance, even tire tread noise have been optimized for support, better handling, and ultimately your safety.

Each is tested to perform impeccably on mile-long trails, be it on mountains, deserts, beaches, and forests even smoothly paved routes. We see to it that they are ready for both motocross and endurance tracks.

We continue to explore tires with different patterns, strength, and hardness made of different compounds suitable for various tracks and terrains.


As soon as I get the second tire and mount them I'll post a review on how they handled on my 2017 Honda CRF450R at the track.  

Here are the tires mounted.  They were great on the track.  I really felt the difference with the new Pivotrax MX Tires and I love them.  



The guys from ProAction really helped me out at the Mesquite race.  I had no way of mounting the tires at the track so right before practice and my first moto ProAction mounted the tires.  Thanks guys.


AND HOW DID THEY HOLD UP ON THE TRACK?



WON THE HOLESHOT WITH THE PIVOTRAX MX TIRES SO I WOULD SAY PRETTY DARN GOOD PLUS HOLDING THROUGH THE CORNERS AND DEEP RUTS; AMAZING!
