UPDATE : I dont know what i would do without you guys !!!
here goes, well finally after forever and a vacation i got around to playing with the bike yesterday, set everything back to stock and added a new stock expansion pipe i picked up from ebay in mint condition for $21 and it was a ton better but not great, got a new plug cuz i noticed the wrong one was in there and made another 1/2 turn out on the air/gas and presto a stupidly fast honda dirt bike !!! amazingly clean power throughout the rev range and the powerband i have heard stories of but never felt, well lets just say it doesnt want my 170lb ass on the seat when it hits....
this morning i went out with a neighbor kid (yz125 but this kid can ride, i cant, lol) and he took me out on a whole variety of terrain from wide open flats (OMFG!!!) and jumps (uhh, we have to work on this one), to trails (bike sucks here unless it screaming), to mud (woohoo unless ya faceplant in one like i did
) anyway long story short i have alot of learning to do but i have this strange feeling this can make me a better street rider (any input on this ?) i for the first time ever jumped a dirtbike and its a great feeling as well as working on mastering the controlled power slide, this thing is amazing... if i sound ampped up its because i am, that was 3hrs of super intense fun... i cant believe i waited 27 years to experience this..
all thru my childhood i have ridden quads but they just dont compare.. i never realised how much of a workout these things are, the guys on tv make it look sooo easy, its not.... i have a ton of practicing to do to even be semi decent but im willing and ready to learn... id currently describe my riding style as semi controlled sloppy drunkin off roading.... with a touch of scardis hillieitis....
oh ya did i metion we have hills here that i bearly make up on quads and i was nailing them on the bike fishtailing the whole way !!!!!
DAMN AM I EXCITED !!!!!!! WOO HOO !!!!! I think im going to run around the block now and chew on a cinder block to come down, lol !!!!!
