Just wanted to say I LOvE this bike

I rode with a XR600R, DRZ-E, DRZ-SM, DRZ regular, KTM 990, DR650, WR450, DR650, WR250 today.
The Angry Tractor was the best woods bike there I think.

The WR450 had more power, but didn't go anywhere I didn't.
The KTM was to shiny to take up some of the really nasty stuff we did.
The DRZ are just totally 100% uninspiring to me
My big bro 600 was good to go. Faster in the fields, slower on the single.
The WR250 was underpowered and too shiny.
DR650 did ok, but man was he sweating a lot!

I would like the magic button, not gonna lie, but for a $1300 bike it'll do. The WR450 would be my second choice, but it's x3-4 as expensive and not as reliable.

The KTM and DR650 did ride 45min to the woods and I trailered 1:15 to the woods, but they missed out on the really good stuff when we were at out destination

For the middle class white guy 3 little kids weekend warrior excursion ole faithful beater 85% woods bike = XR400!!!!

:::isclaimer:::::

I'm sure some 990 and 650 riders have total disregard for the well being of their bikes, but they are rarer than the 400 rider

And I did not wish for their bikes yesterday

EPA approved

Anybody know if the XR4oo is EPA approved to be titled as a street bike?

No it was not. BUT, over the years many owners have gone thru their STATE processes to make them street legal. California is probably the most difficult...maybe impossible now, with adding a Baja Designs kit adding turn signals, battery, etc. Michigan (my state) has a well defined process...NY is a PITA like CA....there are some states where it is even easier than MI.

Saw mount revision:

If any of you have ever ridden northern ID single track (especially in the spring), you know that a chainsaw is almost mandatory. After a few trips out with the saw mounted on the handlebars, something had to change. 15 pounds of saw and mount hanging off the front of the bars is less than ideal.




I chopped up the mount I made and rigged it onto the rear. I haven't had a chance to take it out to try due to the cold torrential rains we have been having, but it HAS to be better!

Not really, but it seems to work and I really couldn't find anywhere else to put them. I don't really like the idea of putting fuel in a backpack. The mounts are $5 bend-o-matic drink holders from the bicycle place. Easily replaceable. The only time I have had any ground contact is sliding the bike back down a hill climb that I had no business trying to attempt in the first place, and while dragging it (upside down) over sidehill downfall, again, that I had no business being on (without a chainsaw, hence, the mount). With the cans alone up there, I don't notice the little extra weight. They work great for premix/bar & chain lube!
