    I saw the blue bike in the videos and the aluminum frame and just assumed that TM was a model of a two-stroke Yamaha they only sold in Europe. Didn't realize it was a manufacturer until your post above. EFI on a two-stroke...cool.

    Up in the air right now...depends on how much of the snow melts today.

    I think Punxsutawney Al jinxed us with his official declaration of spring on the big bike drop-o-rama thread. :boid

    Hey, I had a TM in 1975 (Suzuki that is)

    Thanks for that video Turnersville. That's the most realistic representation I've seen to date, that makes it feel like the old days. So cool to only hear 2 strokes. Like 1975 again.

    Well here's my video from the Snow Run. I had to cut a LOT of cool single track out of the video to get it under 15 minutes. I had to keep it to a few interesting clips. The video has a way of making it look easy too. It's a different story when the trees are inches from your head going by.

    I'm glad I got the 450 instead of a 530. The 450 has far more power than is really needed. I have a friend that won a lot of enduro trophies riding an XR250.

    Nice video Rob. You're right about them trees. I have bad shoulders and was planning on getting a wider set of bars to get a little more leverage. Each time I brushed a tree I thought I was glad I didnt have that extra inch stickin out cause it would have put me on my ass.

    and that is because an xr was gifted with the best suspension to run through rocks and snot, box stock! :ricky

    some of the enduro gods out our way swear by the wr250f's. 3500 barely used and bullit proof, almost...

    If anyone wants to ride around by my house today, give me a call or send me a PM. I was thinking just going out for a couple hours this afternoon for some fun.

    I had a nice little ride today, changed the oil, cleaned the air filter and polished it up. Ready for next time.

    I'm doing the final NETRA report and FYI, out of 17 riders in the C Senior class: Brain 5th, Rob 7th, Thad 9th, Ed 10th.
    There was a guy in this class that dropped 291 points :eek1 Either he thought the point was to get as many points as possible (High Point) or he was riding a mountain bike, or maybe his bike was stuck in first gear....but hey, he finished! Not everybody did. BTW, Brian dropped 59.
