    Bill-----(Billgo77) I'm so sorry I wasn't there for you---we made such good riding partners last time.:jack:jack
    But the good part----you didn't blow up the same bike twice this year.
    Hope you get it going soon Bill-----what a bummer.

    Here's the only woes I had at the Loosenut------Hard Road helped me fix it---------funny thing---it takes me 12 minutes to fix a flat on the trail in a mudhole----and 2 hours in my well equipped shop ????

    I hit this in a river in Arkansas this spring.

    These guys pick me and the bike up---but the motor was full of water.
    Didn't hurt it tho.

    Silver Shadow, your first picture is actually of our group figuring out how to get BillGo77's Blue Versys (featured in Loose Nut's Meme) home as it just snapped a rod on the riverfront.

    Can't go wrong with a WR and some other options would be a Yamaha XT 250 or a Honda CRF 250 L, both have a lower seat height. Lots of knowledge around here and awesome people to ride with!
    So you're gonna be ready by Loosenut 2016 right?!

    if you are new a wr may be a lil large. they are tall and kinda heavy. maybe an xt225, tw200 or super sherpa would be a better choice. and they would be cheaper.

    I agree with both.....If you are taller WRR may not be too bad because mild power, if you are shorter like my wife I'd say TW200. My wife does way better on TW over XT just because she can touch better and has more confidence. Also take one of the ABATE rider courses.
