Hello everybody, I'm trying to find a fun little trail bike that I can use to just tool around with my friends and such. I was looking at smokers for awhile but they seem like a pain in the ass (maybe I've been lead astray). Anyways there is a 2002 wr426 for sail for $2000 and it seems like it would be a really fun bike. I have a KLR650 right now and as good of a commuter as it is, it absolutely sucks offroad. What I want to know about the wr426 are the following:
1. How reliable are they? I don't want to have to keep dumping money into it as I'm sixteen and my part time job can only get me so far.
2. How good are they for general woods riding, wide open fields, dirt roads, etc?
3. I would probably try to get it plated eventually (I live in Maine by the way). How are they on the road?
Wheelies are very important to me because It's the most fun you can have on two wheels
If you guys have any other recommendations for bikes that suit my needs, let me know, I'm open to anything.
Here's the bike: http://boston.craigs...3986379317.html
Oh and I've been riding for years, I'm 6'5" and 220 pounds so please spare me the stuff about it being to much for me.
