tee hee, i get goofy when i get to run free out here. it nice cause there's no speed limit (cept on the beach-25mph, and they will ticket you!) and the only other thing is to stay out of the noise buffer zone.

it's so much fun. imagine having a power to weight ratio of a mclaren F1. that's what my banshee has, approximately 70 horse and 350lbs.

Sweeeeeeet dooooood

Way huge difference from the riding ovver here. It's all tight deep woods trail stuff with maybe a couple high speed spots down logging roads and stuff. Way fun, and can't wait to get back on the trails. Ice is almost gone, won't be long 8) been taking to slow-wheeler (4 wheeler) out regulrarly to check the trail status :D

My other 'spensive toy:


And the family herd:

and i thought i was the only one :eek:

first bike was a Honda 70 :wtf:
then upgrade that to a Yamaha 250 Cross bike(like the one nate has pictured)...slammed that into a wall and hurt myself.Mine was painted caribbean yellow with sunset orange.

now i have a Yamaha Jet Ski that i take water racing.No more bikes after that one.
If anything ill buy a Hibusa :slap: ring it out to speed limit and feel free :bump:

that whole wall thing will happen a lot quicker on a hiyabusa man. then we won't have anymore wizzizms' :(

nice bike you got nate, the 4 strokes are good for the trails, bring it out to the sand though and you'll cry. another friend of mine bought a 02 ktm sx and for the first summer (02) when we went riding, no one would race him up the hills, except me, and of course he won. after last summer and my engine work, now i beat him up the hills and we're about dead even in acceleration out on the highway there.

good stuff :D

No doubt, more like "ring it out to multiples of the speed limit"

Depends on the bike, I've got a friend that we ride with with an uber silly (modded) honda CR 450F 4 thumper. That thing will pull on anything I've seen, and you do NOT want to be behind him if he twists the "whee" grip. Entire trees and small viliges are dislodged from terra firma.

Mine would be small for wide open ranges like that, but for the trails we have here I wouldn't want anything bigger/faster, I'd never be able to use it. And the 4 strokes have a much nicer powerband for the more technical trails than the 2 strokes. I do love the smell of a good 2 stroke mix though :D

hoooo hooooo oooooohh, nice sled skiddmark. i know a couple of guys who have newer arctic cats.....like 140 horse stock. if i need more power in the future, that where's i'm headed, 900cc twin transplant from one of those badboys 8) . oh yeah, and for those of you who don't know, that 140 horse is easily upgradeable like every other 2stroke with a pipe and porting and whatnot. i can only imagine, and i thought pullin wheelies in 5th gear at 50mph is crazy!!!

and yes, four strokes will do the job on the sand, but not nearly as much fun to shoot up the hills with. as brutily powerful as my banshee is, it's not even fun to think about taking it in the dirt or gravel, just spin city on the tires, and then trying to keep the tail in line.

the sand is where twostrokes shine.it's pretty amazing to launch and then get all the way to the top of 4th gear on a 500ft long hill climb then have to slam on the brakes while still traveling up hill to avoid "death air" off the top and into a nearby razorback :D

Cool bikes guys. I started out tuning bikes before I got interested in cars...I mean before I was old enough to drive. I have a 94 KTM 440. Stock 62 HP, but mine is modded and at 250 lbs---you get the point. Now if I could only get my 5ktq to accelerate like that thing.... :eek:
