The title is lowercase because i'm not going to take the time to describe the twisty bliss to warrant a full RR. If you retrace the route i posted previously see if you notice peg scrapes through the Sequoia's! Here a shot looking down on Big Sur near one of my camps.

Phil....a TTR 125 has bigger wheels than a KLX110. If you're going for a KLX, I would go for the newer ones that came with electric start, otherwise I would look for a TTR 110. When Yamaha stopped making the TTR90, they switched it to a TTR110. The Yamaha's have always had electric start and it was great for the little kids.

Pushing the happy button makes for a happy child riding in my experience. The several TTR 90's I owned were the best bikes my boys ever rode.....they beat the crap out of them and they just kept going.

Ok Mike, that helps.

So I need something for little mama to eventually move from the OSET. Electric start is preferred. The specs on the TTR110 look similar to the KLX110. Anyone know if there are important differences between the two?

Fri - Sat Big Bike Dirt

I'm thinking about taking the big bike up to Bear lake about 4 on Fri and working my way south to Strawberry or further depending on how far I get on sat. Camp somewhere along the way. I try to keep a pretty good pace. Let me know if anyone is interested.

I rode the GTL to Utah. I rode a lot of twisty roads. I hooked up with Ryman for some Kokopelli sightings. Now I am riding back to Texas. I am going to ride a lot of twisty roads. RR done.

Hey y'all
Anybody around salt lake have the knowledge and tools to put new seals in a leaky fork tube from a 92' XT225 Yamaha.
I'd love to learn from somebody and would happily buy drinks and dinner.
We can work at your place or mine.

I'd also be willing to pay somebody to do it but would much rather learn how to do it alongside :)
Thanks

Christianbenzon,

Bring it by my place and we'll get the forks squared away. PM me and we'll work out the details.

-Phil

Anyone want to do a multi-day ride sometime this October? Maybe a big west desert loop? I'll be back in town early October for a couple weeks with no schedule before we head to Arizona for the winter.

I'm riding an ancient XR600R, so I'd like a non-techy west dez loop, maybe three days, two nights, blah, blah.

Then, if anyone wants to do an Arizona loop mid winter, let me know. I'll either be in the Phoenix area, or Palm Springs area all winter.
