I'm considering getting back into riding again after a 5 year lay-off, I am now 41 and way out of shape, but know riding again will take care of that. When I used to race I was slow because of endurance but was able to run mid-pack in a Vet B race for a few laps, after that I faded pretty quick. I have rode both 125 and 250, I was fastest on a YZ 125, mostly because of cornering speed. I was also a so called Byronite, and will be probably be again if I start riding again, along with the ocassional LGR and Aztalan race. So what are the 30B & 40B Vet riders in district 16 and 17 running these days? Are the 250 four strokes as flickable as the 125 two-strokes? Are any vet riders riding the 250 four strokes or 125 two-strokes? I race for fun and am not concered with the holeshot, but would still like to run in the upper 50%, I realize most of this is rider ability and not the bike, but I would still like to hear what other Vet riders are racing on and thoughts about the 250 fourstrokes and 125 twostrokes running in these classes.
