Finally part of the Orange Crush family!

Just picked up this beauty last night! Couldn't resist taking her out for a quick joy ride, I was giggling the while time.

Just getting home



First ride

Congradulations, that is beautiful! I've always liked those.

Sweet bike! Leave yourself plenty of room to stop, it'll accelerate much better than it'll stop.

Luckily the guy gave me a new rear tire with the bike!

NICE!!!! I came close to buying a left over model new several years ago but was scared I might kill myself. So I ended up with my 950 Adventure figuring I could get out of trying to treat it like a real dirt bike (had to buy a 530 for that) You prove you are manly just by pushing the beast up in the back of your 4x!!! Congrats and enjoy the most powerful dirtbike sold

Thanks! I actually had a close call yesterday, got it on camera too. She's a beast al'right! So much fun to ride.

Here's the first part of the video I took.
