Default Lets see your dirt bikes!

I just got back into dirt riding, after a 25 year hiatus.
I have 2 Yamaha Banshee atv's, but I was never able to ride with my dirt bike buds on some of the single track trails.
The Banshees really don't do well in the woods anyways.

So I bought a Kawasaki KLX300R for a great price from a buddy that got a new WR450R.
Great bike, but wanted a street legal dual sport for riding on some of the gravel roads near me, that lead to the fun trails.

I found a good deal on a Suzuki DR Z400S. What a nice, stable bike off road.
Here are a few pics from riding near my home, on the minimum maintenance roads, and trails. Took it easy, as it's been a long time...

Don't have a pic of it but I have an '81 suzuki rm250. Alot heavier than my new cbr and the torque is nowhere near as civilized as my cbr. Made taking my license test easy because I was used to such a heavy beast. Old school 2 stroke, little torque then ALL torque! Wheeeee

I actually sold my dirt bike to buy a CBR250R. Hope to own another one some day. Would probably choose a dual sport also.

BBR, that last one immediately made me think of that song "Tree Top Flyer"

Haha, I can see that. I actually had a MX race today. First time i've ridden in months. Took a first in masters plus 25A in my heat, second moto I had the hole shot then wrecked hard and ended my day. It was a gnarley crash but I was un thoughed. The bike on the other hand.....not so lucky
