    Received my new bike a few weeks ago, waited for some protective parts and some bling to get sorted, then decided to go for a first ride last Sunday.

    Mates told me they'll sort my an easy break-in day... Of course I knew that was not gonna happen... Ended up being hard enduro, and in the rain to make things even harder as they already are!!!

    Considering it says "300 TPI 2-stroke" right in the title, that's an interesting question.

    I did the break-in of my 500 recently, and immediately followed with some trails and hard climbs. The manual says to not use more than 75% of the engine power during the first three hours, which is a fair warning because I can't really handle that much yet anyway :D

    Yes 300 cc 2 stroke bike. Most of the (best) enduro bikes are 2 strokes.

    Yeah tbh those bikes have more power than 99% of riders will ever be able to use, it's not gonna make us faster, but still fun that it's there when opening the throttle wide open :D

    My first tpi was a 250 because it was all I could find. My second was a 300 I sold to my good friend because of a knee injury. My third one is a 300. I went in and put a deposit on a bike July expecting it to show up this fall. Then I got a call about 5 days later that it was here lol
