The 125cc two-stroke is not only fun, but is not as intimidating as some of today's modern four-strokes. In this video we grabbed our 2017 Yamaha YZ125 and KTM 125 SX test bikes for a couple 85cc graduates, Carter Dubach and Logan McChesney. We wanted to see what they thought of riding each bike and how the transition from the small bike to the big bike really is. But we didn't stop there. We also thought it would be fun to grab 90's professional Supercross rider Dean Matson, current young professional Lane Shaw and our Associate Editor Sean Klinger to see what they thought about riding 125 two-strokes and if it's a viable choice for them as well.
