Thanks to all the TT'rs that helped me get the 400 going after it sat in my garage for over a year! I bought it for my bro-in-law when he came back from his first tour in Iraq but it never ran right and was really more bike than he wanted so he bought something else. I bought it from him and it sat there. Finally it's running and the shake down cruise went successful.

Today after work I'm taking it out to the practice track with a buddy (my buddy rides a CR250). I've been through the manual and adjusted everything back to stock (suspension, chain, controls, tires etc). I haven't really ridden a motocross bike on a motocross track since I was a youngster. Looking forward to trying out the 400 on the track.

We are also planning a Hollister trip to see how the 400 does there.

Anyway - thanks everyone for all the help!

We will be there the 8th/9th (moved from the 1st/2nd). We always camp in Bee camp and will have three or four guys and various g/f's, wives, kids. My buddy rides a red CR250, I'll be on the YZ with probably a vintage Yamaha or Honda in tow, another buddy rides a YZ250WR and another guy rides a WR500 two stroke.

We always fly Old Glory from the truck.

Feel free to stop by and say hello. My name is Shane
