We had 3 green machines with us up in the Flinders, 2 x KLX250's one with the 300cc barrel & a KLX450, the 450 was a nice unit, 250 got every where we went....we had 3 x TTR this year.

I've had, yellow, Blue, Red but no green as yet, just get to get the best bike for the money LOL

Its great riding with your kids.

I'm actually off for a ride this morning with my young bloke. Yehaa.

Hope he can keep up. If I can get him out of bed!!!

Hey as long as its not plated ... mine wants a street bike but my credit card says no. Start em on dirt bikes they'll have some respect for speed and pain. Local Rory Sullivan rides the 250 BTW: www.youtube.com/watch

Ex missus had a klx 250. She bought it brand new. Bottom end failure at 530km.

I don't trust klx 250s / kawasakis.
