I've noticed that the 350 Freeride is quite heavy compared to similar powered bikes (4 strokes) :(
And the 30 hp that it delivers are available since 1994, the year that my Suzuki DR 350 was born, the only difference is the tank/seat configuration, more of a trial bike configuration.

I wish I had 1/10th of that skill.

Hell, if I could only ride a wheelie.

This rider is in the same category as the Cirque du Soleil performers

Just trying to bunny hop the bike over those logs would probably put me in the emergency room

100kg is to heavy for you?

Good luck finding a bike you think is light.

And if you think the FR is no better than your DR, I strongly suggest sticking with the more basic bikes like the DR, XT etc

Wow that Superduke...

One of my favorite hooligan videos. For some reason the quality looked much lower than I remember, maybe because of html5?

I looked up the weight, and yes it's indeed 100kg, but it felt heavier to me than my DR 350, at the time... anyway I don't see the reason why you took it so personal...

make no mistake ladies and gentlemen. the FR 350 is an awesome wee bike. take it from a chap who has one. it is the easiest bike in the world to ride and will give you the confidence to do things you would not normally go anywhere near
