Bikes/Equipment

2000 RS125R
“The 125″

  • HP: ~40hp Water-Cooled
  • Transmission: 6-speed Manual
  • Wheels: 17 inch

This is the Biggest and Fastest Bike Anthony has ever ridden. It is a TRUE GP Race bike and Anthony loves it. But like a true racebike, it expects the outmost respect, or it’s quick to put you on your head.

As all GP bikes, maintenance is very high and expensive. The bike requires top-end rebuilds (piston and ring) every 300 miles, or every 2 to 3 trackdays. Full rebuilds every 1200 miles, or about every 12 to 15 trackdays.

2004 NSR65R
“The 65″

  • HP: 11hp Water-Cooled
  • Transmission: 6-speed Manual
  • Wheels: 12 inch

It is a Stock NSR 50 with a Big-Bore 65cc kit. The kit includes a Pipe and Carburetor.

In 2009 we used this bike in conjunction with the NSR50. However, since the arrival of the RS125, this bike is now a training bike. Because it uses small wheels, it has a propensity to tuck the front, which is good at teaching Anthony how to control front-end tucks.

2004 KTM65 SX
“The Training Bike”

  • HP: 15hp Water-Cooled
  • Transmission: 6-speed Manual
  • Wheels: F: 14 inch, R:12 inch

Anthony’s Dirt and Training bike. This is the most powerful bike Anthony had ridden until the RS125. We got this bike for him not very long ago and he’s already having too much fun on it.

Since Anthony began riding on asphalt, the transition to dirt was odd and long. He started on a KTM 50SX Senior Pro as his first dirt-bike, and after he out-grew it, he got this one.

Polini 911 4.2hp Dreambike
“The Evil Bike (Retired)”

  • HP: 4.2hp Air-Cooled
  • Transmission: Automatic-1 Gear Centrifugal Clutch
  • Wheels: 6.5 inch

This is Anthony’s “Evil Bike”. This bike has taught him the most. The bike has no suspension, so any mistakes in body-positioning or input the bike will make him pay for them.

In 2007 and the end of 2006 he raced this bike in the 4.2hp PocketBike classes and dominated. We also entered it in the SuperProduction and Open PocketBike classes and he did very well, finishing on the podium. Not bad, considering those bikes can make up to 4x the horsepower of his.
