Hey guys. New guy here to the thumper forum. I've had a couple bikes. First one being when i was 17 i got an 01 yz125 that was a great bike to learn on for where i live. When i first rode i had never been on any kind of bike before. My mind was blown at how fast something could be. I rode that around for a summer here (black hills, SD). After not having ample power and always having to thrash up our steep hills i knew i was ready for more power. So i got a nice 02 honda 450 that i loved and it was a great bike but i ended up selling it after a summer on it also.
What i'm getting at is that i think i can ride pretty well when it come to tight woods and steep hills. But i just got an 04 yz450f for 700 buck's. Needless to say its kinda trashed so i wont be riding it till spring after it get work done to it.
I am a little weary because it is a 4 speed. Does this make riding this bike impossible up super steep hills? Thats all we have here pretty much. If your not going down then your going up. Lots of rocky trails and slow going sometimes where i like to ride. Would i find myself on the clutch alot with this bike?
Thanks for any input you guys can give. I used the search too just so you know. Not a newb to forums in general.
