Hi from another Newbie
Permalink  
 


Hi,

After much deliberation I decided a TTR was the best bet for me with its unique combination of attributes - 6th gear and leccy start in particular.

Just spent a few days in Devon with a few other old gits trying to relive their youth - and in the company of a CRF450L, XR400 and DRZ400E, the TTR gave away little on the road and was easily the most nimble up the rocky climbs.

Now I have a few miles under my belt, I think there are a couple of issues with the carburation - but will post separately on that

Anyway, would be great to meet any other forum members in the same neck of the the woods (East Sussex) although off road opportunities are a bit sparse here - unless yo know better?

Cheers, Del

Welcome to the forum Derek.

You really can't go wrong with a TTR250 when you think about it - how many other trail bikes have such a helpful web presence?

Welcome Del, great choice of bike as you have already experienced by the sound of it.

This is a great forum too, everyone plays nicely and there is a wealth of knowledge freely shared, I've learned loads from the experts on here which adds so much to the fun of TTR ownership :)

Hi Steve, Stayed 3 nights in Dalwood, then 2 near Tavistock. Trails were mostly on the TET, numerous rocky climbs were the highlight. Weather wasn't great - got drowned a couple of times and we didn't cover the miles we thought we might - but what the hell, good riding and good pubs, what more do you need! Del.
