New toys!

Picked up two bikes yesterday... an '02 YZ426 for me and a '98 YZ400 for my brother. The 426 has a White Brothers R4, Excel Rims, and suspension work (BG3 or something like that), the 400 is pretty much stock. Got both for 5 grand, $2900/$2100... Good deal on the '02, average deal on the '98... but I didn't want to wait until next summer for the prices to hit bottom again so I jumped on the first reasonable bikes I could because prices are already climbing with desert season right around the corner.

Anyway, these are the first bikes I have ever owned and it will certainly take some time to get comfortable on 2 wheels (I've always ridden quads). I only crashed once today and I have a couple nice bumps on my knee and ankle to show for it. I did have some very close calls on top of the one crash though...

We'll be heading out next Sunday for round 2!

Right on sounds like you and your bro will be havin a blast. Do they have the auto decompression mod?

No auto-decompression... yet. Haven't had any trouble using the "routine". More often than not, they start on the 1st kick.

Sweet! Welcome to the party! :banghead: Keep it tuned right here for all the info you'll ever need on your new rides.
