START SMALL AND WORK YOUR WAY UP Dear MXA, Just finished reading the August issue, and if Troy Lee wants to part with that Ferrari helmet, please let him know that he can send it to me. Oh, and if anyone wants to send me a Ferrari, they would go really well together. Justin Wilhite via motocrossactionmag.com
KILLED AT THE BOTTOM END Dear MXA, No wonder the minibike craze dried up and blew away if an overblown CRF50 goes for $25,000. Whatever hope there is for the ever- declining minibike market is not helped by ultra-expensive play bikes. John Souter via motocrossactionmag.com It may be true that $25,000 play bikes are at the extreme end, but it wasn’t expensive minibikes that killed the play-bike craze—it was cheap Chinese knockoffs that broke on the first ride, had no dealer network and were sold by Manny, Moe and Jack.
