You are implying that we once made sense. How do you support this position?

Good thing I'm not able to do this ride!

I'd be completely unprepared. I only speak english, my feet are not blue and my rack is inadequate.

I think we'd need pics of your rack to determine its adequacy.

Something like this:



I personally don't think rack size is so important. Too big a rack just puts extra stress on the subframe and can get hung up in the woods.

Based on that pic I'd say she's a gas

I think the real issue is dealing with limited tank capacity. A small tank is usually what you get on this sort of model, and you have to take steps to deal with it. It usually means stopping more often.

If Anton is rockin' a 400 now, that makes mine the smallest bike. An XT225 would help to enhance my stature in the pack. Aw hell, can anyone scrounge up a Honda 50? Please?

The mighty Honda 50 would do the job and give you massive cred at the same time!

I've ridden the XT 225, and I'm more than certain that it would do the job also.

Now quit yer whining and ride yer 250. If you're really suffering displacement anxiety, I'll bring the KDX200.

Wanting to ride that bike would only give me a bad case of priapism.
