Flying BRP

Just a few low altitude passes....






BRP certainly isn't an MX bike, but it held its own out there!

Thanks - this was on the vet track at Cauhilla Creek MX track in Temecula/Anza area CA.

Honestly, I'd advise against bringing your XRR to an MX track; mine was on the track as part of work sponsored skills training event.

Reason I advise against bringing an XRR on an MX track, is it's not really sprung for it and the weight of the XRR causes you to take lines a lot different than the MX bikes.

On this day, they knew we'd (there was also a CRF250L) be on the track and let the other riders know.

If it was any other day, it would've been potentially sketchy...but hey you never know so give it a shot!

I've see some of video on Youtube, great track.

Your XR and you were sponsorised for make MX that's it ?

Ok the XR had a important weight and she's not developped for this.
We're agree.
I think you're right when you said the lines are different than 450 and other MX bikes.
But what's wrong ?

I wouldn't make results and competition.
I would just make some training for have fun and for have experience for supermotard ... only that. So if it's hard, if I male bad times, if I can not take the same line than MX bike, .... it's not a problem !

My fear is brake the bike, suspension, frame, ...
(Not with a fall but just when we ride : just a important wear)
You think it's possible ?

The XRR can handle it for sure.

Just make sure the rest of the riders on the track know you're out there.

For what you've described, your intentions with the XRR on a MX track are all good.
