Default First ride of the year FINALLY

     

Went out for my first ride this year. Went to a practice track here in western PA. Overall I have to say it was a good day. 450 started first kick and ran awsome. Started out pretty slow for the first hour or so...shaking off some rust and it was only my second ride on my 450. I am still learning to jump a 4 stroke but I can honestly say I am faster on this bike than on any bike I have ever ridden. I rode ah665's 05 YZ125..man I love that bike. first lap or 2 I hate it b/c of the power difference, but once I get used to it man that is a fun and awsome bike. It is sooo lite and easy to throw around and the motor is awsome for a 125. I would like to see what my lap times are on it compared to my 450 I bet they are really close. He got a sproket 2 teeth larger and it seemed to make that thing pull really good out of corners.

I saw a guy with a 05 YZ250 that had PC Plat 2 , shorty, and V-force. I talked to him for a while and he asked if he could ride my bike and he said i could ride his. I have been wanting to ride one of those for a while. I got on and it felt a lot different than my 450...like I was to big for it (I am 6'1"). But I got used to that after a lap or 2. Man that is an awsome bike, felt good to ride a 2 stroke 250 again. Bike had awsome power and handles very well. I am a fan. At first I was taking it easy then that guy was threatening to pass on my bike so I steped it up a notch or 2. That is when i realized this is an awsome MX machine. Overall I think I still like my 450 better but that bike was flat out awsome. He got off my bike (his first ride on a new 450) and wouldnt quit talking about how awsome the motor is. He loved how it came out of corners and the overall power. He also said it handles awsome and he felt really good on it. So overall a good day of riding and I got to ride a bike I have been wanting to ride in a while.

That's always Awesome to ride a bike you've wanted to ride, and then getting confirmation that the one you chose is the right one.

Great report and glad you had fun and didn't get hurt

Ya it was awsome to ride that thing. I will say for a 250 2 stroke it is the best one i have ever ridden. Yamaha did a great job on it.
