Bwaaahaaahaaahaaa!!! This will be good for all you guys out there who insist on dogging Suzuki and Kawasaki. :silly:

Okay, okay. It was James Bubba Stewart :p on his Pro Circuit prepared KX 125, but he truly spanked some reasonably good pro rider (maybe Sean Palmer??? Don't quote me on that).

I read it last night in either Dirt Rider or Racer X, I don't recall which. Get both of this month's issues if you want to read it yourself. Needless to say, this guy's got some serious talent. Can you say, "the next Carmichael?" :eek:

This was with the KX125 having a 2 lap head start correct? I doubt it!

CRGuy, I don't remember the details, but I think he may have even come from behind to win it. It was a little "snippet" in the mag, don't know if it's total BS or not. But the way that guy rides, maybe not.

I see that all the time

I can take 50 % of you here 125 and 250s ...to a kid on an 80 that will spank you worse then your dad wish he could. Maybe 75% or more ...50% was being nice.

Ya, A 125 can easily beat a 250.. it's all about rider skill!!

A stock 125 can beat a modded 426 no prob.. it's all about rider skill.

i read that in racer x magazine too, stewart is very impressive. his riding skills, not the bike though. i got 80's passing me and my 125 alot, one kid who passed me had to slow down and stop by his dad to get off the bike, and have his dad hold his yz80 while he started it. :( his dad had a very proud smile on his face when he was watching him practice.:)

Both are pro's on hopped up bike's. That sound's alittle strange to me?
I have been passed by a guy on a RM80 one day. The day my suspension was sucky, my bike was stock And I couldn't ride well

When RC was racing the outdoors on 125's he was turning faster lap times and motos than the 250 class. Sounds about the same deal here. Palmer I wouldnt consider a top 250 rider, and the only thing holding Stewart back now is his age.

I will promise you this; there are people on THIS forum thank will spank you badly with them riding a stock XR-100 on your best day, even with your suspension working.

Bubba beating anyone on any bike means nothing about the bike. He'll beat a lot of people, no matter what he's riding.

On a tight track, both riders being equal, the 125 has the advantage. On a high-speed track the 250 has the advantage. Put a very talented 125 rider on a very tight track with a bunch of 250s' and he'll snuff 'em all.(IMHO)

For some of the nationals and SX races, you can watch the lap times being posted (close to) live on the internet, with each rider's best lap also tracked.

On some outdoor tracks (Budd's Creek, RC lap time about 2:40) RC laps 5 seconds faster than the fastest guy on a 125 (Brown last week), but about 10-15 seconds a lap faster than 20th place 250 cc and 20 seconds faster than the guys at the back of the 250 field. Think you can make a 250 national? If not, RC will beat you by at least 20 seconds a lap (more like 30-40 seconds).

RC and Bubba will still beat you if they are riding 80s and you're on a #4 Kawie. If you are a novice, it would not be close.
