Yes I am tall 6'1'', but I have no choice as dad (Uniflow) is also very tall. I am aware this is a yz250f and I do apologise, (it is the first 4stroke in the family since the TT500). I did used to ride dad's yz250 which was such exciting fun! But that was until I had a bad crash into an open culvert at a trail ride (now called Meagan's Culvert apparently). The robust yz250 was left unscathed except for a dent in the exhuast...sorry dad haha. I'm not allowed the yz250 anymore... But it sounds like I have no engine in the 250f so you?re a bit brave letting me back on the 250 dad haha just make sure the dented exhaust is back on for when I come home coz the last thing we want is a mark on the fancy shiny exhaust!

Welcome aboard. Is the TT500 when you had some issues with the drum brakes? Not much chop are they? :D I know how you feel. I almost took out my old man cos I was used to the rotor and caliper on my CR125. Got back on my XR100R and it just wouldn't stop.

I think the combination of the TT being sooo heavy (for me anyway) and having drum brakes which yeah aren't as bite-y made it so i was over shooting corners a bit (especially in that radical overtaking maneuver). it now has no kick start (it was taken out to lessen weight for a race) but as you can well imagine it didn't do much, it's still heavy as s***. All in good fun tho!!

Radical overtaking maneuver is one way of putting it. I would describe it more as a kamakazi but thats just me :D

I was sitting in the lounge with a few of my flatmates discussing whether or not darts is a real sport and a motocross add popped up which, i was stoked to watch (of course). The convo suddenly changed to whether motox is a sport or not...WTF! I looked at them all in disgust and proceeded to explain how motocross (/trail riding) is so very physically demanding and in every way shape and form a sport and then quickly left the room before i got angry if they even tried to disagree with me.

its better to agree and bash mx, then intern bash the things these people are into. i find it amusing to make something up about them, you now like look at them and say " what the?", make a weird concerned face. when they ask what, say some thing like " your head is misshapend" or " your ears are pointed". just make them self consious about themselves. more affective on women than men but no one wants to be ugly. put them on the defensive.HA!

Motocross is the second most demanding sport on this planet. I recall reading an article once where Mike Bell's level of fitness was compared to an average professional American football player. Bell was off the charts in all categories, he was even stronger in physical strength then footballers 50/60 lbs heavier then him.

You know Meagan, your old dad can't walk for a week after a decent VMX or trail ride. I was told the motorbike does all the work for you      apparently!! :D
I crawl or roll to work. Best part is the wife puts my boots on for me, beat that !!!
