Ok since moving to West Texas I have found that there are no good back roads to ride around here with out making an overnighter out of it, but there is an alternative. Mini bike racing on go-kart tracks is a pretty big thing out here. There is a go-kart track about 10 minutes from my house that will let you ride up to a 50cc bike on their track. The way it works is you pay a $100 a year membership fee and they give you a key to the gate. The track is a little less than 1/2 mile long and has 11 turns. Its pretty tight so I am looking to get a 50cc bike that has 12inch wheels. I have looked and the Honda NSR50 and I also have done some reading on the Metrakit 50. does anyone have any info or experience with either or both of these bikes?? Or know of any other race bike like this?? Right now I am leaning towards the Metrakit just because it looks better.
