Got out for a ride finally
« on: October 22, 2018, 05:40:30 PM »
 
 I caught up with Bruce and went to our local park for a ride its been about 6 mths  ::)

  Ive been looking at getting a later rider , and saving  the IT , a mate gave me his WR450 (09) to try out ..
  I was pretty impressed with it,  the last time I rode a 450 was about 04  ;D so I wasnt sure how it would go , well how I would
  go really  :D here,s a vid for your amusement

Cool. What?s not to like about adding a later model YZ/WR to your collection - great engine, nice suspension, elec start, reliable etc etc.  I like having the choice of taking out either the old bikes or the modern one - albeit for preservation of the older machines (and me )...


Cheers

Looks good Muzz, a nice loop. I?m considering updating my 01 YZ250WR, I?ve thought about the 250fx, 250x or Sherco 250 ser and 300 sefr. I think I?ve talked myself into being a 4 stroke hater when I actually may be better off on a 4 Banga.

 Hey cooky, yeh it?s a good flowing track there

  The 250x I had is a good bike and I?ve heard good things about the fx models I don?t mind the 4t
  Had many a TT600-XR600 the later 4t seems to be more reliable now , I was looking at a later rider
  To benefit from the plush suspension after a few laps on the IT my shoulders start feeling it

 No need for a lottery  :). Theres always a bike here to ride and a room all you need is an airfare  :)
