Well, I am now the proud owner of a 426. I picked it up on Friday. The thing still has the original tires, it fires on the first kick, and it is in beautiful condition. I got it for $2100 w/ a helmet, shop manual, and a ramp for my truck. I think I got a pretty good deal. I spent most of the weekend drooling on it and I finally took it to the track yesterday. Keep in mind I haven't ridden a dirt bike for 9 years and all I have ever ridden are two-strokes. All I have to say is this thing is a beast! The power on this thing is crazy. I am still getting used to it's behavior in the air as it seems very sensitive to throttle on the face of the jump, but that will come with time. I doubt I was getting more than a few inches under the wheels anyway, so I shouldn't have to worry about it! I took it on some pretty nasty trails and it behaved well. I would just chug along and it would always pull right through. I stalled quite a bit but I am sure that will go away with practice. After that I took her out on the track again and got a wild hair going into a set of whoops. I let 'er rip through a berm and before I knew it was sideways and in a wheelie (is that possible??) and by the time I straightened it out I was already swapping through the whoops and took a dirt nap right in front of a group of spectators. Super. But all was well- bike and body were in one piece. I am just glad to be back in action!
