• 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.

    I've not seen their study, but I heard about it over the years. I mention, if asked, that covering the brake helps you make a bad judgement more quickly. :)

    I've been to a couple of relevant presentations on braking for road riders. One was conducted by ADAC (Germany) in about 2005. They had riders travel around a large, closed circuit at average roadway...
