I want a more powerful bike with decent suspension travel, for running around in the desert with my son. I currently ride my TW200 but it's suspension is set up for trail riding, not hammering thru sand washes. A local has a '87 Yamaha XT350 for $1000 on craigslist. Is this a reliable, just put oil and gas in it and run it type of bike. I am 48 years old and not a motocross racer. I'd truck it to the desert to ride - I have a DR650 for the adventure riding stuff... Let me know your thoughts.
