Post subject:  Super cool WR250 of awesomeness

After a dreadful time off the bike BangHead crybaby2 :cussing, the boss said that I'm now allowed to go riding again hello2 :headbang

So, I got to take the bike out on its first REAL ride today with Dan and Mark. Cant quite reach the clutch and was told by everyone to stop back braking down hills so much, but other than that, after about 30 minutes got the hang of it. Although apparently its not good enough cos its not a Husaberg.

I now feel the pain of Naomi, Beau, Kylie and the other short girls out there. I can barely get my foot over the bike at the best of times and have had to learn the hard way how to take off now actually sitting on the bike.

Also, a super thanks to Andrew for the front tyre!! Your now part of my super cool awesomness bike.

Oh yeah, its an 08 WR 250, standard as far as I know, I have no idea bout bikes and things, ask Shane, lol.

Haha steve. Got myself stuck in the mud today too. Just as soon as dan got off his bike to help I made it out. Hehehehe. The ankle brace done really well, THE BEST $40 I've ever spent.

Very happy with it. A few tweaks and it'll be perfect for me.

Looks good. They are a great bike.
Regarding height issues, I have the opposite problem - I'm too bloody tall for mine tongue3

Shanes not cool enough for this thing!! Even when he had to give me a hand he wasn't allowed to sit on it! Did stack three times yesterday though.

The old TTR was great first bike, but whoa, what a difference this thing makes. I"m not being thrown around like I"m riding an electronic bull.

I'm 5'6, so I'm not the smallest person. The TTR felt about 30 cm lower.

NICE!!!!! :D :D

You will love it! And they are pretty much bullet-proof!

At the girls ride, if your keen, take my 350 for a ride and see what you think ;)

The leg/height factor is a huge downer, but I just fail to stop so I don't need to put the foot down hehe

I'm totally good at it when I'm taking off on the flat, couldn't push off the ground when going up hills...... also tricky when your not in the right gear, lol. I'll learn, just practice I guess.

Ohhhhhhh the KTM...... kinda maybe be really cool. Your more than welcome to part-take in my awesomeness of a bike too.

Very nice April :headbang

Thanks for the offer, I did actually ride a WR250 around Kenilworth on my last ride a couple of months ago.

The lack (well, less than the TracToR) of engine braking downhill scared the bejeesus outta me :o binkybaby crybaby2
