I'm not a whinner but I have a problem. I have bought all my bikes and I know have a CR80RB. Fifty minutes away from our house every other Friday night is a fun little motocross race. It is not serious at all there are not even any woops just a few tabletops but mostly just a fun little flat track. It is not very serious racing at all, they're just guys (and girls) out there on Friday nights that just want to have fun. I want to get good and have fun so I want to go race. It improves my skill and I have fun. But dad thinks it is way too dangerous and in a few weeks I'll have a bike (he says that every year) and we're gonna go take our bikes fishing and on trails, your not good enough to race. Sure trail riding gets time on the bike but you don't get as good. And yes I would probably come in last the first race, so what! He says I crash to much on the trails anyway, now you want to race? I crash on the trails because I don't have anyone to ride with and I can only go so far and I get bored and start doing stupid stuff. I really want to race and I want to build skill. And most of all I want to go out there with the rest of the dirt bikes and have fun. If I sound like a whinner I apoligize, but if there is any advice on how I could greaten my chance to race I would love to hear it.
