Ok I just want to think everyone for your replies when I was trying to decide between a 125 and 250. To let you all know, I decided to go with a YZ125. I told you all that I wasn't going to race but then I changed my mind so I will go with the 125 and also not as much money. My question is that I have heard alot of you guys say (I TOOK MY DIRT BIKE OUT TO MY LOCAL TRACKS AND RACED IT) So I am wondering where you guys go. There is a local motocross track about 20 to 25 minutes from my parents house where I can go and practice but I don't think they race there. So where do I go to race other 16 year olds that ride a 125 like me? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks Matt:scream:

Go to your local bike shop and ask them. They should be able to provide you with all of the proper information for your area. most Race organizations have a "schoolboy" class that will probably be exactly what you are looking for.
Most important though .... Practice a great deal and get completely comfortable with your new bike and enroll in a MX School at a local track, before you start racing. This will give you the greatest chance at avoiding serious injury.

Good Luck and keep us posted.:)
