Henry,
The grass always looks greener on the other side. With greener grass, you'll have more yard work. Be happy with what you have, and stop looking for reasons to change. It is a lot like a divorce.
I read that a lot of divorcees, AFTER the 20/20 hindsight steps in, regretted their decision. It may be easier and less costly to MODIFY your bike, than to swap it out for a new one (and then modify that one).

Mixing expensive oil with already expensive fuel, poor future economy, and rebuilding the top-end twice a year sounds fun to me. :)

I'm sticking with Blue.

go back a week to the KTM v WR post & read again about the KTM.

how can you even think of going? would a turkey vote for christmas?

three 250's shagged. the owners falling over each other to sell them. the answer to a warranty claim is no-now what's the question?

Hey guys, thanks for the support of our blue monstor. Think I will stay with it from now on.
James, I don't have many thumper friends, mainly 2 smokers. But I'm the best rider among them. YEEEEEEEEeeeeeHHHHHHHHhAAAAaaaaaaa :D
I "smoke" most of the pumpkin with our mightly blue monstor. :)
I even outjump most of them in a MX track.
What I need is a rebuild on my suspension, what do you guys suggest??
Or should I get the 2000 WR400F?? :D

monseur henri

you know, when i first gawped me eyeballs on this website i was entranced by the raw enthusiasm you blokes had for your bikes & the fact that you were itching for the next years model to come on down.

who's talking, 12 months later about the next bike?

is it because the old buggers are on top of the pile? are we just too old to get enthusiastic about anything anymore.

next years bike is going to be brilliant, i'd love one! not one person has drooled about the 426cc, the new & improved something or other (which costs a lot of money!). jesus wept! the valves are made of unobtainium!!!!!the most expensive metal on the planet!!!

so don't buy that ktm equalling technology, buy the latest gizmo that makes you a man!

henri, 2001 is your year, how else could i have put it?
