• Yamaha TTR 225

    I am a beginner rider that at my age wasn't ready to jump on a big bike. In fact I started a little over a year ago by purchasing a China made pit bike brand new for $300. It was a 110cc small sized bike that I cruised around with my son on his Honda CR50 on the property I live on in the Angeles National Forest in CA. It was fun but I wanted a "real" bike that I could trust to last so I bought a 2005 Yamaha TTR125 LE. This seemed more like a real bike and it was fun to trail ride but when I went riding with a friend I realized I had a kids bike so I went out and bought a 2004 TTR 225. I am 5'8" and weigh 150 so this bike is a nice size for me for now. I like the stability and ease of riding. It might still seem like a kids bike to some but not for the trail riding I do.

    Do they have vintage sidecar racing down your way, that would be an awesome way to waste some time with your kid :) and I think you even have a nice BSA 650 engine kicking around don't you?

    I was stunned at the place Kanuck Kathi managed to go on a XT225! The lower suspension doesn't allow the speed of my 500exc .. but she got to most of the same places.

    ... and this has got me...

    Kerosene can be used for cleaning chains (including O, X-ring chains.)
    There may be better things but #1 diesel is ok.
