Hello From York

Hi All,

So having wanted a trail bike for some time I convinced myself I should try a few taster days before committing to my own bike. Then a 2004 TTR came up for sale in another forum, strange things happened in my mind and its getting delivered tomorrow. I really cannot wait. Ironically I had committed to buy this one from Wales when i spotted the recent Raid that was for sale in here from Wakefield but it was too late. I have yet to research where I'm going to ride this bike locally but that will come i guess.

You will soon understand that I'm rather clueless with the mechanical side of things but very wiling to learn. So much so that I have not long since finished building a good size mancave in my garden and I'm cutting my teeth on the mechanical learning curve by helping a mate restore a Ducati Paso 906.

My riding experience is about 11 years now, all road riding and the bikes I have owned in that time are DT125RE, Kawasaki KLE500, Vstrom 650. My current bike is a 2017 Africa Twin which I took around Spain, Portugal and Gibraltar in May this year. 2772 miles in the saddle over two weeks. I wish I still had that DT though.

Hopefully I don't annoy you too much with too many stupid questions and looking forward to the sound advice of you good members.

Tony

Welcome to the world of TTR250s. My "other bike" is an Africa Twin too. I find that the two bikes compliment each other well. There is certainly a lot of tracks that the TTR will breeze through that I wouldn't even consider taking the AT.

Cool. I doubt you will regret it. I am stoked with my purchase. All things considered. I'm the same, i'm an average rider really, but pretty clueless anything mechanical. But like you ,happy to learn.

You can't go too far wrong with a TTR, I'm sure you will work out where the tracks / trails are around the area. Study Google maps then go find the track. I tend to ride the TTR or WRR 80% of the time, not sure about the UK but here in South Australia there are radars & hidden cameras everywhere in the hills & it's just too easy to get pinged on my Triumphs to I ride the dirt.

so post photos & or video of the rides so we can have a look

Cheers Terry
