For tight single track it"s a perfect machine wish i was rich i"d order one t"morrow (no offence but for women it would be the bike to buy ) for kennilworth up the long hills it would struggel a lot but for the track they had today f#$% ing great there were a few big jumps i thought it handled it fine as good as any other bike did i mention the free ride was awesome :headbang pete i think it could handle anything you could give it :D cheers

Hi Zombie,

Did the freeride have trials tyres or nobbies on it ?

What was your opinion of the tyres on it?

Was torque delivery good at low RPM?

Cheers
Leanne

Actually was asking about how strong it looked as in how do you think it will take being thrown down the track, flipped on hills, slowly binned etc. Im blown away how resilient the WR is to that sort of abuse. Although managed to ride Saturday without falling off for a change.

Freeride had trails tyres on and they felt fine (might use em on my 350 next ) down low power steep hills at pace it will struggle . i think for a female it would be perfect .try and organise a ride on one if you can . pete there is nothing to them like my mate texas ranger said they are like riding your sons 80 around there is nothing to break on em :D cheers did i mention that the freeride is awesome :headbang
