Default 350 & 150

Yeah, the 350 seems pretty sweet. IMO, the best bike in their line up is the 150SX. This is probably the best bike there is (if I had teh money I would get this bike just to have it).

As far as Cairoli, he needs a 450. The 350 would romp in SX though, but the 450s are easy enough to ride outdoors, that average riders are staying closer to him. Outdoors, I don't think the weight of the 450 matters. Indoors is another story.

Sorry Mainjet, I'm not too young. I may look 18, but I'm just a hair past 40 so the docs would give me some crappy fake knees. They don't have any good bionics yet so I'm considering those replacement meniscus that just got approved by the FDA. We'll see.

THREAD HIJACK---->>

Well mxerhale....
My wife has recently gotten 2 titanium knees and went thru it with almost no problems and is doing great and she is 73. My son has bad knees and probably for the same reason you have bad knees, from dirt bike racing. He made a living out of it for a bit but it took its toll.
Point is he is 52 and the same surgeon who did my wifeís knees told him he was to young for the replacement process because at this point in time, it doesnít last forever. He also got another opinion and received the same advice.
Thus my remark about being too young.
Having said that, please understand my family and my self have access to best doctors and surgeons on the west coast and from them and the man above we have been very lucky over the long haul. If it were not for them I (we) would not be here.
Didnít know about the meniscus part and will tell my son but he also has a ACL problem.
You race any desert Hale?

Yes that's why I said I could get some "crappy" fake knees right now, one of the big downfalls being that I'd be getting them re-replaced in 15-20 years. Most doctors around here (and I have a pretty good one that does a couple of Utah college sports teams and the U.S. Ski Team) will replace knees after you're 40 with the caveat that they'll need to be done again during your lifetime. That's why I'm looking into this new Menaflex meniscus replacement so that I won't need to get the titanium knees. The way I understand it the Menaflex is mostly pig tissue that they implant on your cartilage and it's supposed to stimulate your body into growing back some new meniscus of it's own. And Woody as much as I'd love to be coming back, don't get your hopes up!

As for racing any desert, I did a WORCS race in 2003 (and really loved it) but other than that I raced MX and AX exclusively.

Ahh well, so long as you're still game for some MX, SX and the occasional Des Nation Road trip I guess I'm fine

Sooooo... Hangtown has come and gone... the 350SX seems to have held it's own pretty well.

I know it's only one race, but so far so good.
