My 2-fiddy love affair / another new member from Aus.
Permalink  
 


Hi from the often most liveable city Melbourne! Well I finally got around to joining the forum, not because I finally bought a TTR250, I’ve owned mine since June 2003! But I thought I better write up some stuff before it dies (do TTRs ever die?) or before I sell it. Wait, what sell it? Maybe might just have to due to finances/storage and maybe it’s time to, it’s not like I haven’t given her a good run (60,000+Kms). Anyway time to join this forum while I’m still a Yammy owner and well essential join the family that loves to celebrate all things TTR  

Why a Yamaha TTR250? 

1. I am a Yamaha fan at heart. Who can remember heroes like Steven Gall & Craig Dack? And more recently Chad Reed & Valentino Rossi. My first bike was a Yamaha and so were my dad’s farm bikes & 1 ATV and even my brother's YZ80 so Yamaha was well and truly in the blood. 

2. Budget. It was much cheaper than many other options.

3. But still a very capable dirt bike & reliable. (It had to be a trail bike that I could ride legally around town.) And they still look good too (not something like a Kawasaki Sherpa – sorry Sherpa fans but just a little gross)

4. It had to be a 250 – at the time Victoria was restricting learner riders to a maximum 250cc.

I could keep going but they would have to be main reasons. Now I could write lots more about my TTR250 story but the missus is giving me the word. 

Oh just quickly where do I ride? Bush: Around Aberfeldy, Baw Baw National Forest. Work: 20 mins to Rowville, Victoria and back. Odd weekend club rides: Classic bikes organised by DMCC (other bikes welcome – thus how I get to tag along).

Keep riding, Cheers Will

PS. I don’t have many photos – our Nokia mobiles were useless 13 years ago, but here is one interesting pic I took some time within the 12 months of owning her. Taken at Aberfeldy on a trail riding weekend, the KDX was either my brothers or his friends, I can’t remember/who cares.
PPS. See my profile to read more about my TTR250 valentine. (Well I did post this on Valentines Day - now to finally get of this pc, the wife is tapping her foot. LOL!)

Thanks for the welcomes. Yes it was like biggrin after gettin off the PC.

Yes she (the TTR that is) will scrub up nicely even for 60K+

I just handed in the rego, in the process of getting a new bike.

(The pics below are the TTR in current condition, not the avatar & attachment above from 2004, just to clarify).

Ride on!
