Misunderstood what i meant. they wont let any bigger 4t on the track but will let 85's. Arnt 125 4t in same category as in size/capacity wise when it comes to riding on a track which would allow him to ride on the kids track on it

Ride park maybe, TTR125 shouldn't be on a race track.

Think CRF150R when talking about 85's and 105's.

Im not talking about racing. The bloke wants to putt around with his kid on a kids track where the bigger 230/250 4t arnt aloud which is why i suggested the ttr125 as it should be accepted with 85's on a track and it will stop start and ride al day hassle free with e-start as well.

I agree.

I just couldn't liken a TTR125 to an 85.


Shitters like TTR's hurt adults, soft suspension with limited travel, don't take any notice of the rear guard height, that's styling.

Wasnt liking it to an 85 just saying there in the same class when it comes to riding together at ride parks ect not racing. We have one for my eldest daughter so know what there like and have happily followed my 7yr old twin girls and 3yr old boy around on it while they ride there bikes. Which is why i suggested it.

I think riding with kids is best with a kid-sized bike, 50-110.

In racing terms: MX and enduro

In MA eyes if you are endorsed to ride a 65 (2 banger) it covers you for a 125 (4 banger) as well.
An 85 (2 banger) = Honda 150 (4 stroke).

At most ride parks for advanced junior mx tracks, the max capacity is small wheel 85's and 125 ( 4 stroke), but in saying that they must be ridden by juniors ( under 16). If trail riding it is pretty much what you want.
Adults no matter what size bike should not be on beginner/junior mx track with kids on 50/65/80's.
