    Watched this last night. Impressed with the tech available on a 250 (me ignorant of these tings).

    Nice bike. It's twice the price of a new Beryl the Yellow Peril but quite possibly is twice as good.

    So would you have that as well as your current WR?? Or instead of?

    I'm looking at a lot cheaper <5k. It would be as well as, different tool for a different job. Probably going to be a 450, it's got to be different to the WR. The WR is heavier than all the 450 enduro/motorcross tackle with half the go...

    There's a few used 250F's out there but they often look pretty scruffy and I'm not sure if I want to take on a very high revving 250 that may or may not have been looked after. I figure that 450's perhaps don't get worked as hard all the time and there appear to be quite a few nice ones around that have "only been trail ridden."

    I like it that he did not drown out the braap braap with music, that made that clip so much more interesting.

    OUCH!

    just watched ep2

    i thought they were a bit exuberant racing through those muddy puddles
    99% of the time muddy puddles are fine but if you are expecting to ride through hundreds....

    One for you @Box'a'bits although you have probably seen it. A piece of video artistry. How are you doing?
