I very much appreciate people who read my reviews and I know that they often try to learn some new tricks by reading the “Test Drive” section. Because of that, I would like to help them (that is you) to get as much online information as they can before starting to ride.
Because I have recently done some previews (no test drive, that is) as the bikes are 2009 model years and become available this october, I invite you do do your own skill deeloping by attending a profesional riding school.
Rich Lafferty Racing and Riding School is a nice start as you can evolve fast and get to racing. That is the interesting part, isn’ it?
This is the first school that brings immediate enjoyment and the best is that it addresses to both children and adults, so parents, if you feel like being worry-free, this is one good solution.
They also have a “Tips and Tricks” on their section on their website from which you can download free information in order to gather skills faster.

This couple has done a video in which they present the three methods of starting a bike. Gas down, choke up, ignition key on and put it on “run”. Then use the clutch and make sure the bike is in neutral and bang. That’s the first method.
If you don’t have enough strength, use the kickstand, get on the footpegs and use your body weight to start it. That is supposed to come naturally. But the next one if for the ones with a little bit of experience. Do the same things as before only that put the bike in second gear, hold the clutch and run next to it. Suddenly jump on the seat, release the clutch and accelerate.
But even though you’ve understood the procedure, it is recommended that you see it happening on your bike and do it yourself next. For those most experienced of you out there, this video can be inspiring and determine you to do similar thinks. Remember that you’ve also been thought one day and if not, start doing it anyway.
The new distance jumping world record was established by the rider referred to as “Bird”. He manages to go nearly 395 feet and easily succeeds to become the new record holder. But will he try it again? We shall see very soon!
Kawasaki offers its own, unique solution to the translation from mini bikes to full-sized motocross machines: the KX100! With its 99cc engine and larger wheels, it is the purest blend of both worlds and it is not afraid showing it out on the track. Performance, handling and balance is what Kawasaki aimed at when created the new mid-sized motocross ride so it should receive great recognition for it.
Kawasaki has made quite an entry with the all-new KX250F two years ago, but with the stiff competition encountered on the motocross track, a radical new approach had to be made towards this bike. The recipe is the same as in the case of its bigger sibling, the KX450F: a lightened engine that pulls stronger finds its place on the refined chassis. The look is also refreshed so Kawasaki’s out with the best against its competitors.
On July 11, freestyle motocross superstar Ronnie Renner will attempt to establish the Guinness World Record for highest air ever attained on a motorcycle - the Step-Up world record currently stands at 35 feet.
He’ll use the crazy quarter pipe in this video to do it. And he’ll make the attempt at the Santa Monica Pier in California.
Kawasaki carefully planned the radical revision that implies all of its motocross models, with the KX450F being a top priority. It is the first new model to be launched after the bike’s introduction and it is definitely the best of Kawasaki so far. Especially redesigned to better deal with the track’s demands and the continuously advancing competition, the 2009 Kawasaki KX450F reaches the highest levels of performance and refinement, leaving us craving for one.
