Picked up my first dirt bike a couple of days ago, after doing much research the WR450 looked to be the one to fit me best. I've been riding street for over 30 years and road racing for 2 years I thought it was time to experience the dirt. Bike has been uncorked, did baseline maintenance on it including brake pads, still waiting on wheel bearings, do those on all my bikes.
First big ride coming up this Sunday, really looking forward to it, plan to take it easy with some trail riding and maybe a little sand work to get the feel, have an experienced friend going to show me the ropes.
Intent is to plate it in Georgia, looks to be pretty tough but I've got time to work through the BS they'll throw at me.
Did much of my research on this site and ADV, can't thank you guys enough for information provided, hope to be able to contribute once I get some experience on this beast.
