Baaik vir 12-jarige
« on: November 24, 2019, 04:52:55 pm »
....... ons is gatvol vir Chnineese baaiks! Laaitie het 'n 125 cc pitbike waarvoor ek R5000 betaal het (as ek reg onthou). Nie lank nie toe breek die crank ....ja .... reg gehoor ........ die cranck. Nog 'n duidend of twee later vervang ons die motor met 'n BigBoy 125. In die week begin die motor olie rondom 'n breather pyp uitgooi. Ons laat sak die motor en die hele casing het rondom 'n engine mount uitgebreek.

So, nou is ons klaar met Bruce Lee se baaiks.

My laaitie het nou-net 12 geword en is langerig vir sy ouderdom. Totale petrol-kop maar ry taamlik versigtig. Budget is nie te wyd nie ........ wat koop ek?

Ek het op daai ouderdom vir myne 'n DR 200 gekoop, hier van die forum af.

R6k betaal en weer verkoop vir dieselfde prys na 2 of 3 jaar.

Of selfs die DRZ125.  As hy lank is kyk ook na die 230 mark, maar hulle is al duur.  Die 85 2 strokes mag dalk intimiderend wees as hy tans versigtig is.

Kobus, jy is eintlik 'n smart ou.

Lyk my die Suzuki is 'n gewilde keuse. Ons is op 'n plaas so hier is baie ry-plek en heelwat DRs wat as plaas-baaiks gebruik word. Sy versigtigheid stop by spoed so iets stadigers is glad nie 'n slegte idee nie.

Dankie vir die raad.

+1, fantastic bikes them!  :thumleft:
No lowering needed, they're quite low as they are - but still quite capable, not that fast and very reliable!

Will hopefully be looking at some Suzukis over the weekend ...... scarce they are and fetching quite high prices even for older bikes. Spoke to a guy who sold his "old" DR 200 for R19 000 a few weeks ago. Appreciate the advice here.

Now be a HERO dad and get the boy a 2 stroke, lets stop pi$$ing around with the lazy 4T stuff on offer... we want to keep the boy biking into adulthood.... not bore him to sleep before he even really starts.... :lol8:

He will learn to really ride on a 2t... get a good 125 Jap bike and remember the smile on his face till the day you die.. :thumleft:

I was 15 and my dad came home with a XR500 for my birthday (I had been riding since 5 so was reasonably adept by then)... my mother had a stroke just there and then and had my dad take it back and I eventually ended up with a shitty 4T 250 Kawa that my 50 could out accelerate WITHOUT MUCH FUSS... still hate that 250 to this day :o

LOL, my old man used to say that the smaller bikes did not have a throttle, ... only volume control.

You gotta love a dad who buys you a XR500 on 15 ..........  :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft:

RMX250 , older bike , power valves have a tendency to destroy themselves and piston and cylinder in the process , quite a few spares discontinued including the power valves .
RMZ250 is a four stroke motocross , I wouldn’t go for one unless new .
TS125 , reliable and mmmmm , nothing else really .

What about something like a KDX 200 or KTM200 , on the 125 side the YZ125 is a good package and reliable
