Re: 400EX or Yamaha Warrior
One note about reverse;
Its not just appreciated by women, I am sure.
"Get her in the gym so she can muscle her way out".
Sure, I COULD push my bike out of a situation if I had to, but why? That's not fun, and that's what riding's supposed to be about. It's not supposed to be something you HAVE to do.
Yesterday, I missed a shift going up blowsand, near the top, wound up in neutral, and found myself in a situation that I was not prepared for (especially considering it was just the secong time I had ridden). I am sure that in that situation, or worse, anyone could have appreciated the luxury of being able to back out of it, not have to hop off and push.
I LOVE my Warrior. It's fun. If I wanted to work out in the desert, I would have kept the CR 80.
And it's mostly stock. If I need more, I can always modify later, when I'm ready.
Just my opinion.
