So after lowering and sorting the first CR for Joe , young Will realised he could ride it easy so the kx 65 went on the market and sold pretty much straight away.
I got onto another 07 CR 85 and it is a great score . 1 owner came with the original spares kit and manual



So all this equals to one happy Kid

so I have found a Castrol sticker kit for the CR 85 so its going to be like my old cr 250

Well its finally happened , its taken 7 years but I suppose its every parents nightmare but young Will has broken his leg on his bike.
It was the second lap on his first ride of the season on his new (old ) CR 85 .
I told him its got a new piston in it .... Take it Easy
I told him he hasn't rode since November ..... Take it easy
I told him this your first ride on a 85 ............ Take it easy
HE done exactly what he was told ....all the above and he stalled it ....taking it easy and a kid come around the corner out of control and run into him .
Nothing more scarier than running up the track to ........ how bad is it and seeing your young fella in real pain and knowing this bad and even worse making the phone call to MUM !
The upside though is going to the proper tracks with professional trained people on site he was in good hands straight away and I must say the ambulance trip to the hospital was pretty funny with Will on the Green whistle ( a flute like thing that they breath on of Nitrous that just takes the pain away) thinking his first time in an ambulance was "AWSOME "
its a couple of weeks down the track now and he is recovering fine , he is sick of the cast and has no pins or screws in the break to take out so we feel he is lucky.
So the major question was is he going to get back on the bike and to be quite honest I was nervous asking it but the reply was
Dad : So ...should I be selling the bike
Will : remember that guy you told me about that had all them broken bones
Dad: Who Kevin Swhantz
Will: Yeah he had 100 didn't he ? ive only had one

Definitely scary seeing your kid like that. Ours has multiple breaks but only a couple from dirt bikes. On the bikes he broke his foot, wrist, and leg. The worst being the leg. The wrist he rode the rest of the day and then complained later that it hurt. The same with his foot. Every time he got back on the bike but his leg took him a year and switching to a different bike to get back to his old pace. He was nervous on the old bike waiting for it to happen again. He's 20 now and almost a year to the day he lost half of his foot to a grain bin auger. He got back on the bike for 3 races and a few practices before winter this last year. You'll find the fun of riding will motivate him to get better faster. So I bet he'll be going stir crazy until he gets to ride again.

Looks like your boyz live a fantastic life. Good job mate. "Livin the dream" .

I had a new 83 model CR80. It cost $973.00 brand new


You told him about Swantz, but not Evel Knievel .
Swantzy was my favourite rider back in the day. I had 2 x Swantz RGV 250 replica's. Pepsi and then the Lucky Strike.
You know Swantzy was a coke head don't you

A mate of mine has 4 RGV 500's . Out of around 70 bikes total.

When I had my 250's I used to ride with a Cop on a 500 as well. That was always fun.

I liked Swantzy for his riding style. He always rode the best lines. He was a master of straightening a track through the corners.
Don't think I'd use him for a role model for my young bloke though .

Gets worse. My favourite all time GP rider was/is Anthony Gobbert. "The Go Show" .

not really using him as a role model just showed my son a picture once of him and it showed which and how many bones he had broken it must have stuck in his head.I don't believe any sport stars should be role models I think me as a parent just has to lead by example especially at this age 11 and 13 but if I did though heres 2 that would be high on the list



As for Gobert he could be used as an example on "how to throw your career away" he could have been anything that bloke
