i am so glad you guys don't ride quads!(4 wheelers)
Ohh come now, you can't belittle the quads. I love my dirt bikes but my LTR-450 quad has every bit as much fun factor. And I can turn faster lap times on my quad than I can the bike. The quad will suck your eyeballs to the sides in the tight turns.

Anyone using the Asterisk Cell knee braces? I can get a script from my ortho for a custom fit DonJoy knee brace for my bad knee, but I have to be honest, the Asterisks looks to be a much better product, AND you get a pair.

Just dropped the teeth front and rear as the bike was geared for the road when I got it, shortened the chain and the bike came alive. It was geared way too tall for the dirt. Ran it along side the cornfield next door and in the blink of an eye was doing 60 . . . in the dirt - woohooo, adrenaline rush. Doesn't drop into a corner like the smaller cc two-stroke bikes I was used to, but the consistent low end torque is phenomenal. Pros and cons . . . love it.

The hardest thing for me is which one to ride on the weekends. My ideal weekend consist of riding my 450X down in Baja Saturday and go for a 200 mile ride on my Thruxton on Sunday 😃

Started in the dirt at 10 (late starter!) and been on bikes ever since.

Recently bought the boys Yamahas for Christmas. It is great to see their enthusiasm and bravado.
