I love the bike so far. I actually picked up a 05 250sx for the suspension but I decided to keep with what the 200 already has. Just works great everywhere. The thing is amazing in the single tracks at mossyhead. I used to hate the pds on the mx bikes on the trail. But this works great!

I have to raise the float some though. I'm getting a bog pretty bad holding it wide open like that on the track after a long stretch. Running out of fuel in the carb. I don't always like to ride like that video though. Just something I do every now and then.

I understand about being a lead guy on the trails. I grew up snowmobiling and fourwheeling in the woods of michigan. I wasn't much of a "racer" til the last few years since there are mostly tracks around here or you need a dual sport. So I figure its time to get into the dual sport things and slow it down. Everytime we go out trail riding back home it seems like I'm always in the lead. I learned the hard way about 9 years ago about flying down the trail while being up front. I was on a quad and met another one coming around a corner. We both walked away but both quads were unrideable. Ever since then I will never ride that way. To dangerous! I just like being on abike. back home we could take trails to one bar/pub/resturant to the next. Eat breakfast at one and lunch at the next. I miss that kind of riding thats for sure.

Skid mark...when we go out riding you have to take a spin on the 200... I tweaked the jetting some
Nice riding on the MX track mike.. Bummer your leaving in Dec, only have about a month or so of riding with us.

WE saw you!

[QUOTE=Woods Rider;19694514]Today Vic and I mapped out a nice route for a local dualsport ride which included some Blackwater roads and some nice dirt roads in Alabama that I found Sunday.



We spotted Yellow and Blue DS bikes at the Munson store on HW4... We were already past when we spotted them so we didnt stop (late also and it was getting hot), Anyway should have stopped but didnt.

Anyone ???

And yes it was first time on very tame dirt roads but still an adventure on the 1000.
