Yeah, I bought that Suzuki DR-Z400S

In the shop getting spruced up. Previous Owner had stripped it for dirt-only use and I'm replacing/repairing the lights and wiring and waiting on a new set of sneakers for it.

Too damn cold to ride anyway.

Younger grandson bought a Kawasaki KX250, which is a full blown race bike.

I think he's in for some rude surprises as it's his first dirt bike. Lot of bike for an experienced rider.

He's a BIG boy, 6-2 and 220+ so that'll calm it down some, but he'll have a pretty steep learning curve.

does it run? have you driven it yet? can't imagine that if it runs you haven't at least run it around the block.

Oh yeah, starts and runs good. I rode it up and down the road at the place where I bought it.

A few years ago, I'da put on my Eckskimo Suit and rode it. Not quite so fierce about it these days.

New sneakers came in today, but the toobs are back ordered and I'm still waiting on 'lectrical stuff anyway. I'm a little surprised at the tires, I specifically ordered street-legal DOT approved tires (which these are) but they're seriously gnarly and look better than a lot of straight knobbies I ran back in the day.

Also waiting on a carb rebuild kit and a choke plunger for the grandson's 2-smoke. I got an idea the perimeter of my fields are gonna take a serious ass-whipping when that one is running.

The boys are building a path out through the woods around the perimeter of their Mom's 7 acres which will be a much more appropriate place to ride it both from a noise and tearing shit up aspect.

That's gonna be a while tho.

I had a group of friends back in the 70's that passed a Husqvarna dirt bike around. The original buyer broke his wrist riding it. the next guy broke something else, and the third guy broke a bone also. Then it left my group. Not sure what happened to it....It was a 500, I think....
