    I had the chance to ride Christini's latest bikes--their 450 four-stroke and their GasGas-powered 300 two-stroke. It was really interesting to ride a AWD bike--the front end felt alive, and wouldn't wash out in corners. I've only ridden in 2 enduros, so I'm a newish rider, and so I do have some trouble in deep sand, which the Christinis loved.

    I wrote it up for Popular Mechanics, but they didn't include all the pictures, so here are the pics and the article... And a video (if I can work out how to embed it)!

    Here's the Popular Mechanics story, and here are the pictures.
