Velcro is absolutely styling, so much so that the YZ has needed some maintenance because he's on it every weekend.
Hje was kind enough to donate Danie an old DT125 to ride with Velcro, so the two of them go out together to practice. He's still loving the bike and is much more confident on it now. He's also had his first proper off but survived without too much damage to him and the bike  :thumleft:

Also popped in by Danie this afternoon, as Buff said Velcro's absolutely loving it.  :ricky: :ricky: :ricky:  Sounds like the kickstarter gear/spring is gonna need some attention soon though, if time permits I'm gonna try and help him in the next week or three as I'm only in CT over weekends. Danie is looking for a XL helmet now for himself so if anyone has one lying around that's not in use please let me know, I'm willing to buy it off you.  :thumleft:

Thanx to @Franky3  Danie is now also sorted with a helmet, the one he had he could almost spin around on his head.
