2005 Yamaha TTR 250...

Well it was cheap and low miles...stock...not much power , but it handles tight single track trails great...and out in the wide open desert , with the 6 speed trans...it goes plenty fast . Electric start ... I found that my 09 Versys can't really go where this little small bore , air cooled thumper can go...like up and down the steep , rocky scairy stuff... Plush suspension...low maintanence...Good Times...A real gem in the rough...Thanks Craigslist ... Anybody else here enjoy buying and selling used bikes like me ? You know...just for fun ...to see if you can find a $1000 to say $2000 motorcycle...ride it for a while...enjoy it , then try something different, and many times you can sell them for what you payed for them...it's all about the chase ! Cheers

The pics are not of me...just some I found searching for Honda XR 400's ...that really is a great bike...in fact...my riding buddy just found one and bought it...now I'm really hooked on getting one someday...but my TTR250 is fun for now...the mud puddles I was splashing through were only a few inches deep...but this guy in the photos is really asking for trouble...looks like quicksand

My first dirtbike was a ttr-125, great little bikes... one thing i would warn against though is on trail bikes your rear suspension WILL go much much more quickly than normal if you get both wheels off the ground... Get yourself a yz450f for track days

Bikes:
65cc Benelli Dynamo
Yamaha ttr-125
Kawasaki KX-125
Yamaha Yz426-f (current)
2010 Kawasaki Versys! (very current and loving it!)

I'm considering buying a Suzuki DRZ400E for a second bike. Although there's not much in the way of areas for me to go off roading anymore (except if I put it on a trailer and drive about 100 miles to Donegal), I quite fancy having a pure trailie again to blat around on.

Good luck exploring the infinite abyss
