Clayton I don't know where you are located but look into Dade City Motocross. They have race classes for everyone/bike and MX School every Saturday.

That bike is a big problem, being the suspension which is way to soft for MX, get the right bike for the right job & it will save you a lot of self induced injuries.

Clayton,

Dirtyfoot MX is a great Place for you to get started into MX, it's in Bartow. You can take any bike around that track. You may not be a super star, but who cares, your learning. Start out slow and see what your bike can do. Don't get crazy with it. If your new too MX, roll the track a few times. After a while you will feel it coming to ya. Don't zigzag all over the the track, try to stay firm on your lines, so you don't get run over. A PW80 can ride at this place, and they do. All the jumps are super easy, and the track is so long, that it is fairly open compared to most tracks.
