  • 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.

    • Learn to push start your bike!
      by Derick
      Push starting is like crashing a motorcycle, sooner or later you're going to do it. Like it or not, it might be function that may save you from the side of the road. Last week I helped a guy push start his bike, and it dawned on me how simple it is, but yet people don't know the basics. So first, this will likely not work on a bike that is super cold/been sitting. The starter does a few things to motorcycles along with turning the motor. So, now you know. * Turn on the choke if it's cold,...

    • In a Perfect World
      by RockyMtnRoadRash
      "In a Perfect World" by Todd W. Cox In a perfect world, we’d all have the built-in insulation to be the right temperature no matter where we were standing. While we’re at it, we’d all get to enjoy the rivers of chocolate that wound across the perfect land. Sadly our imperfect chocolate-river-free world likes to throw extremes of hot and cold at us. That’s where wearing the right clothing comes in, and wearing the right clothing means layering. It wasn’t too many years ago that lay...

    • Too Big Too Fast
      by Kat
      I have been riding for 2 seasons now. I wasn't sure when I started my journey as a biker whether or not this was the right thing for me to do. I was uncomfortable and felt scared every time I thought of getting on my bike. But that is all changed. This is the reason why. First off, I love classic cruisers!! I love the look of the big beefy bike. So, when a friend of ours decided they were selling their Honda ACE 750cc with all the trimmings for a great price, we jumped on it. My hubby (who ...
