Default break in..and havin a blast

     

took the YZ250 out today for the first time....WOW!!!! iv forgotten what power they have...its been too long...lol

after i got used to the throttel again and twisting and turning the bike...elbows up..foot out...all the good stuff..descided to get wild and jumped a ravine about 40 feet across..landed just fine...(mental note...adjust rebound)

did a few turns on the track with the local pro boys...i think i did pretty good considering the time away from bikes...after 10 laps i was only 2 laps down. i didnt really get a feel for the bike on the track till about 6th lap or so...was a bit too late by then.hehe...but all in the YZ250 performed flawlessly other then a few minor adjustmants i need to make on the suspension...very impressed with the 04 YZ this year

Very nice to hear you had such a great ride. I too had a nice ride today, but i kept falling is the lamest ways. I was in a turn, front end got out of the rut and i fell, then i lost the back end, did a 180, and fell! Lame crashes i tell, but i didn't get hurt any!

any tumble you walk away from is ok by me...hehe...i layed her down once today as well...maybe 20 mph at best and up a very very small slope..damn right hand mashed the throttel on the creast of the hill...bad idea as she walked out from under me and descide to sight see around town on her own for 30 feet or so..haha we all had a good laugh at my expense
