Got myself one of those bloody orange bikes recently, always said nah... But folded, got a KTM 450 EXC.. WTF...
The 450's have some serious grunt. My RM was worked and set up as a Supermotard when I got it. On soft Shinkos it was an absolute weapon on tar. Now Ive set it up for dirt with knobbies it's acres of fun and pretty friggin wild!
Mate, in the olden days, re my era, my RT1 Yamaha 360 was my choice weapon in the dirt. Had the XL250 Honda Motosport when they came out, new for $674.00 In house diuscount. The Suzuki dirties were 250 the went the 400 red and whites, and the 400 was a long bike remember, wheelstanding ya had to wait a minute for the front wheel to get back to the ground it was long. Seriously there are some serious dirt bikes out there now.These 450s, be it Yam Honda or Suzuki, even the chinese are in there, etc, are bloody quick, and maybe I'm just getting old
Lol Bal....were all getting old. I remember my mates brother buying a DT 400 and allowing me to ride it..i can still remember it today.
PB had two of those DT400's.The first one, in err. 77,bought in Qld Townville.Road it around Finch Hatton, was good fun, to keep my hand in dirty stuff. They were good fun, compared to the RT1360 they were bit more civilised. Sure you woulda heard of the guys breaking their feet area kicking over a large single 2 and 4 strokers .They were the limping cool surf crew, as was I maybe not that cool, cause didn't wear thongs on them, mostly..
Seems to be a Theme of Pomie bike lovers , here`s my two
That is ugly.
Listen up number 260.
