I hate to take away from your bike BUT, The camera man deserves a big hand for job well done!

New bikes are fun heh Leon? I took my first ride yesterday as well.


See you at the loop soon. And camp and rides.

That's kinda what I was waiting for, but then again, those drain plugs don't take big rocks well without some armor in front of them.

Good on you for getting out and starting to get the bike dirty. Repeat as needed...

The camera made the rock look bigger than it was....probably the size of a football in real life......

First race on my WR250f

I took it to the RORR dual sport and the Hammer Run Dual Sport and played with the suspension a bit. I think I got it close so I decided to give it a true work out and ran it in the last race of the season at the Stumpjumper Enduro and give the KDX a much needed rest.
It worked great! Ran perfectly and smoothly all day long.

Hi John!
