90% rider, 10% bike. You'll be fine - unless your buddies are better riders than you are. In which case you could always sabotage their bikes........just kidding. :)

Thats all i needed to hear. Thanks for the input. I have read that the suspenion is the think that holds the kx back, but i am sure its nothing that some aftermarket parts can't improve.

Honda hasnt exactly been known for the best 2-stroke MX bikes in recent years and who wins depends much more on rider than on bike, so I wouldnt worry.

Just to be different get the kaw,and blow their doors off! Have fun and post pics! And quit reading db mags,just look at them!

there ya' go. youll be a beacon on that green bike, but RR might think different ;) . the suspension on the KX is a little softer than the YZ or KTM( not sure about RM or CR) which can be good and bad, but it usually suits the beginner/intermediate better than the experts.
