Re: alright i cant get bikes outta my head now

I'm a four stroke guy myself. Something you'd want to take into consideration on your selection would be it's purpose. Would you plan on riding motocross, enduro/harescrambles, trail riding etc...? Arming your self with that information will make it easier to choose by ruling out others. I ride a DRZ E, which I love, but in my own opinion, it's not a motocross bike. But, anyway, give some thought to what you’re going to do, really do with it, your skill level, and what you want to spend. That will help you decide. Good luck.

Re: alright i cant get bikes outta my head now

I switched from a Banshee to a 99 YZ 250. I ride sand dunes only, so the powerband is what i need.

If i was gonna buy a 4 stroke, IT would be the CRF450. Runner up would be YZ450F.

I dont think a 4 stroke 250 will be enough power for you.

Re: alright i cant get bikes outta my head now

Speaking of perfect machines, this idea has been running through my head a lot lately. I visualize trying to escape a Nazi prison camp and having to ride over fields and jump over barbed wire fences. [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] Anyway, this machine should be powerful, fast, light, able to ride both street and offroad, be street legal, short seat height....I think I've broached this subject once or twice before. I talked to the State Patrol here and it's not possible to make my DRZ E, street legal. Maybe the DR 650. Maybe the duke, I don't know. But I do know, it's out there somewhere. It doesn't have to be tops in all classes, or any class, just do whatever you want to do, and not complain too much. [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: alright i cant get bikes outta my head now

u guys remember ian has never ridden a motocross bike before, i would say a 250mx fourstroke would be about tops for him....but then again...who knows? that crf is lookin nice, hoping for 04 honda has a crf450x maybe like they have the crf250x...but nehow, i don't think u could handle a two stroke 250, or fourstroke 450...especially w/your height u wouldn't be able to touch the ground...i'd say a yz250f would be like perfect....

Re: alright i cant get bikes outta my head now

What reason did they give Brian? I'm sure you've checked here,

http://www.bajadesigns.com/Merchant2...tegory_Code=50

And look here,

http://www.bajadesigns.com/Merchant2...ode=Street+Use

Not sure about down there but if the State Troopers are anything like the RCMP, I wouldn't take their complete knowledge of the rules and regualtions to be written in stone. I was ticketed once because my signal lights weren't working; but I was using hand signals faithfully. He said they weren't legal anymore....WTF??!! They called a tow truck laid my bike on it's side in the cradle....spilled gas down the side of the tank....an extra $35 for the impound yard....just because of a sexually frustrated pr!ck who was in a bad mood and took it out on me.

Re: alright i cant get bikes outta my head now

They told me a law had recently been changed that wouldn't allow a bike that wasn't originally made for the street, to be made street legal. The person I talked to told me that the law did allow for someone to build a bike, she gave this example, like a volkswagon rear end and a welded on kaw front end and a beer keg for a gas tank, said she had no choice but to pass it. She aggreed it made no sense and wanted to help, but couldn't.
