Funny its got the super motto drags on the front and rear axles, if you do lots of tight riding in the bush you might want to take those off, especially the front ones, hit a rock or branch and it will snap your bars to one side and you will be ass over tea kettle, dont worry I keep mine clean also, makes it a hell of a lot easier to work on it and check things, cheer`s

I picked up a used YamaLink for $40 and the guy gave me the sliders at no charge. Since almost all my riding right now is pavement I decided to toss them on. For sure if I hit any bush I'll take them off to keep them from hooking anything.

Just took a look at the page and looks like a lot of fun! Maybe next year. I need better protection gear and to be honest.. don't think I'm ready for that just yet unfortunately. I'm a complete novice and admittedly a bit timid of the bike now. I opened it up the other day a bit letting the mud fly and bouncing off some ruts.. found out quickly that I really have no idea how to ride yet! lol

Ride within your limit`s you dont want to crash and burn, too discouraging, I try and keep up to my son on his 310 Husky, after a few dirt naps I take it easy now, and he stop`s and wait`s, he calls me Captain slow hahaha but he is 30 years younger than me, and Im way more use to road bikes.

Pretty much what I plan on doing. I'm not even looking to test limits right now just getting my feel for the bike and how it moves and reacts. Doing some parking lot turning drills trying to tighten them up a bit, downshifting while also braking using both front and rear brakes, better clutch control, standing on the pegs keeping a controlled throttle, etc. I've got just over 100 road miles in going through some small towns, stop signs and red lights, etc. I've only stalled it once and no one was around to see it. Very happy

Had it racing around the house today against my 5yo on his TTR50. He absolutely had a blast of a time. We hope to hit the peewee track at one of the mx tracks soon for our first dirt experience. I'll ride it along with him but hope to get at least a could laps on the main track to see how I feel. Below he is tired from a long day, the excitement of riding with daddy and then being told he needs to get ready to go for a hair cut for school pics tomorrow.. He turned on the Grumpus face and refused to smile lol  beater

THIS is the reason I bought the WRR! Bought him the TTR50 several months ago and he has been asking me when I'm buying a bike to ride with him. I'm looking for a used TTR110 over the winter to give me something a bit smaller to ride around the house, something the wife can have fun on with us, something he'll grow into AND.. it'll still fit in the back of the Explorer  thumb

Pretty sure the TTR110 will be his before she can say "Where'd my bike go?"

Lol true on the not seeing him until out of gas bit. I've really considered GPS chipping him just for this purpose poser2

The TTR110 is still just a bit heavy for him but you are right it's not far off. At just 5yo he is able to pickup the bike if it's fallen over and part of every ride I make him push the bike around the yard in neutral with the bike off. It's his bike and he needs to be able to handle it I tell him. He is able to push it from the back of the house to the corner, along the side and around to the front of the house (with a small uphill on the side) to the garage. It would be about 160 feet grassed I'd say. He loves being able to go a bit further each time he does it. Very happy

Transformations... Blue to Black! Full OEM Black plastics minus the front fork guards which I still have to order. Flatlands skid plate, radiator guard and new Primary Drive 13/47 (also a 14) sprockets all powder coated flat black. Sprockets along with gold x-ring 112 link chain get installed in a few days. Also added Zeta hand guards, flashers, guard mount for triple mount, running lights/fixed rate adapters, Scaggs Big rear rack, Pro Taper pillow top lite grips, Sandman Case Saver kit in flat black and a Trail Tach Vapor for a working tachometer.

Adding a Corbin or Sargent seat in the spring which will be all black. Looking for a used Exhaust Shroud to refinish in black. Several other small parts will be refinished in flat black over the winter. Still deciding what I want to do with the rear plate holder..

I tore something in my right hand FFS so only have about 500 miles on it and of course it's starting to get cold outside now. Absolutely loving the bike though and the little guy has enjoyed riding with daddy instead of by himself.
