Hello All.

Just recently did my first bit of trail riding with AdventureRide over in Shropshire and am still buzzing, so should probably get a bike. Bob at AdventureRide recommended the TTR250 and from what I've been able to gather so far, he's on the money. One question I have is whether there were any major upgrades to the bike during its production run, or whether a good early bike is much the same as a good late bike? Also, being a beginner and likely to do lots of falling off, is a kickstart standard kit, or was that an optional extra?

My other bikes are a Yam TDM900, and a Honda Dominator, though the Yam will sadly need to go, to make room for the TTR - there's only so much room in the shed.

All the best

Mike

Welcome to the forum Mike!

The FAQ page is the best place to start - up at the top left hand corner of the web page. Loads of stuff there to go through.

The more you fall off, the more you'll want electric start. Easier to spin over a flooded engine, and less exhausting.

Happy shopping!

Many thanks Mossproof - looking forward to lots of reading. Totally agree about the electric start, but back-up kickstart might be handy if I don't work out to stay upright before the battery runs out of juice.
