It seems (I am guilty also) that we spend all this time and money adding larger bores to our 50. Increasing the swingarm length. Putting longer forks on it. or a longer taller frame. And now putting xr70 12" wheels on the 50.



Wouldnt it be a whole lot eaiser to just buy an xr70 and put 50 plastics on it?

if there were no aftermarket parts, for these... that would lose about half of the fun.



who remebers when you are soo stoked to have this new part, and you cant wait to have it installed.



its kinda the feeling of that swaying boat ride at ghetto carnivles.

If it wasn't for the upgrading it wouldn't be nearly as fun especcialy when you tearing around the neighborhood on something at 30+ mph that looks like it shouldn't go more then 10mph.



The aftermarket parts keep it interesting everytime i put something on wether it be functional or cosmetic it feels like completely different bike. I love it, i'm so caught up in the sickness! I spend probably $80-$100 a week on this thing now and i'm no wheee near having it finished.

yea, most of the fun of a fiddy is modding it in my opinion, although it still doesnt beat riding it :D but most oft he fun of riding it comes from the mods so im undecided as to which is more fun
