Show us your trail bike
« on: January 11, 2010, 02:59:56 PM »
Just to help this section get up and running, show us what you trail ride on.  :)

I'm using this fat thing at the moment.............


But I've just picked up this little beauty and it will take over trail duties once I get it over from yumastepside's place.  ;D

Yes, they make some of the so called 'pro bikes' look very sad sometimes.
A well ridden one will take you almost anywhere you want to point it-just don't ley it fall on you!!/ :)

We're getting a good variety here! From big fat twins, to weapons like the KTM and WR.
Anyone got more vintage stuff to share?

My 1982 PE175Z just after i semi restored it. I have it in bits again at the moment cleaning it up and checking out the top end. I wanted a 250 but this came up cheap and I'm more than happy with it. Definitely need to take it out more though.

Not the prettiest bike around but oh so easy to ride.



Honda XR200 powered 1990 KTM. It actually looks a lot better now with a tidy up, I'll try and get a better pic.

This is my trusty XR400, it will go anywhere the modern bikes go and it just loves the hills.
