Man this bike is flat awesome. Finally could not take it anymore, and drove three hours one way to be able to ride more then a few plowed roads. We went to a ORV park near Spokane. A lot of riders but not overcrowded. We had three YZF450's 2-04's, 1-06, 04-YZF250, and some TTR's. Area we were riding had some hill climbs around 200', and a lot of woops, trees and trail riding. Oh, man no one could come close for 98% of the day except the 06 450. Woops, and straight open area, was the only place they could lead and only barely. I have not even adjusted the suspension yet, so the woops will be a little better after I work on the suspension set up. Way more power then my XR400 DUH (I already knew that, but this was the first day of diversified riding). Nothing like freaking lifting the front from 1/2 way through a corner in 3rd, and finally it hits the ground as fourth is grabbed. S had too much power (more then I was used to) on a hill climb as it hopped up over the top of the ledge, wheelied out form under me, jammed my leg into the ground, and Hyper-extended my knee. Didn't wad it up, but my leg is not working real well. Oh well S happens when riding on the edge. Not hospitalization time, but man my freaking knee is killing me. That is a good days riding in my book, perfect if not for the knee thing. Guys with me were being Pu%&*@# and only running the known grooves. They all pussed out after three hours, and I had the screwed up leg. Wanking about first serious ride, being tired, sore A%&, etc.. FREAKING WANKERS!!!!!!!! 1.5 tanks of gas in only 35 miles of riding!!!! Guy with us was complaining about getting rid of his WR for a YZF, and I would guess the YZF will be gone for another WR before seasons end. Can you tell I'm a little stoked about this coming riding season. We need a icon that has WFO!!!!!!!!
