    Yep, it's my go-to tyre on my 300 with Tubliss. Works great.

    From the old Onga to the new bore pump. The Onga just would not pump any more. Went over everything but could not get it to pump. Dropped a 2hp bore pump in and geez does it rip!

    what memories, the wonderful blue IT from the 80's. I had an 81 465 and it was the best trail bike ever, mainly due to its unstoppable motor.

    That looks brilliant!
    I'm taking the little WR out to Big River Wed, Thurs, Fri to climb Mt Duffy, Mt Terrible and a loop north to Lake Eildon.

    I can't wait, this pic has me excited

    A good mate I regularly ride enduro with has the 350exc, Ive the 450 six days.
    It does feel lighter and smaller somehow (in reality no smaller, maybe 1.5kgs lighter) , but also like you have to get up it constantly to make it go. Yes, it does go, but I prefer the wider grunt of the 450.

    It's the flywheel weight and reciprocating mass that does it.
    My old 72 and 74 Husky CR's were vitually the same bike but so different to throw around corners. The 400 was an immovable force while the 250 was flickable and maneuverable.

    I rode one that was opened up to breath and it went well. Chalk and cheese against the likes of the Husky 300 of recent past. The young bloke (14) who owns this only weighs about 55/60kg. An awesome step up from the CRF150.

    Personally id go for a 300 2T.

    I rode a current KTM300, yeah it was bloody nice in all things but the expected kick in the goolies as it came on the pipe. Actually there was no kick at all, not saying it was a slug by any means just, umm, “dumbed down”? That’s probably why I like my 525 more than a current 500, that old banger is nowhere near the power of the newbie but when it hits the sweet spot it stretches your arms.

    I’m interested in a 2-stroke as well for that unruly kind of ride experience that has been tamed out of the modern bikes. Had a look at 2nd 2-stroke - heaps of great bikes less than 20yrs old for under $4k. I was heading towards a vintage but you can end up paying way over than for a more recent model. Need to be full road registrable though so I can fang it into work every now and then. Do any 2-strokes come standard with all the ADR stuff for full reg?
