a in case you missed the sarcasm...
besides, out here in the east if you have the 250cc mill under you it doesn't bung up the tree as much compared to bikes with heavier engines. "you people" who ride without fear out in the open need to get your big bikes thru some unyielding lumber once in a while-- it keeps your reflexes sharp plus continually reshapes your radiator guards, thus keeping the aftermarket parts industry alive, thereby employing others, which helps the economy. see, you *can* contribute to society, even though you have large engines.

My Dub R 400 sees nothing but tight woods here in the Pacific NW. I sort of miss my XR 250 but I've found in a short time that I can carve single track even better on the 400. I still don't understand why those in the east still think the west has no wooded single track? Remember, So. Cal is not the entire west. I'd love to have my 400 and wr 250 just to mix it up a bit. I suppose you guys out there won't ride with anyone who doensn't have the same bike?

naah, i was just poking fun. i know you guys have trees out there, where else would georgia-pacific get the lumber for all the new houses out here?
as for riding with "like" bikes, that just sucks. if you can't keep up with someone on the same model bike, everybody knows who the faster rider is. but if everybody's got different bikes, you can always blame your horse for your lack of speed, explaining that you've currently got it set up for water crossings
my brother-in-law is an A-class enduro rider, he has this '97 KDX200 which has about 100+ races on it and looks like it should be junked. of course he's got custom-tuned suspenders on it, and some aftermarket engine internals, but there's a crapload of stuff that is one endo short of breaking off. but i can't keep him in sight on the trail, i mean not even close. at the end of the day i just tell him his suspension and engine are more broken in than my new 250F's. but what will i say next summer?

i see an awful lot of big bore hardware behind that little blue 250F. pretty sad. maybe you guys who tow your overnight campers behind your 426F's should unhook the trailer *before* you go racin'...
