Just starting over

Post by Mike40motorsport on Sun Jan 01, 2017 7:41 pm

Just joined this site and I am coming back to off road after a long lay off. Last bike I used off road was A Yamaha 465it 2 stroke. Been on the road and circuit racing in the mean time.
Am now looking at what Enduro to get. I am 14 st weight and would call myself an beginner to intermediate. Thinking about getting a Honda 450 Enduro  but going on some Enduro days with shops or manufacturers or any way I can to try out a few different bikes. I want to get something that will suit my weight and be a robust reliable bike. Any advise will be appreciated.

Hi and welcome

To be honest asking here or any other forum what bike, tyres, tubes v tubliss etc are best might be a bit pointless as everyone has a different opinion on every thing, but it make's life interesting

But (and only in my opinion Very Happy ) if you're 14st and used to ride a Yamaha 465 which is a notorious handful, you can probably handle any modern bike that you happen to like the look of!

Japanese if you're not a fashion victim, European if you're a keen mechanic with deep pockets  lol!

15st and a Honda CRF 250x here, and it drags me around fine  cheers

Thanks for the info, really nice of you all to give an opinion. My previous bike to the Yamaha was a Honda red rocket, which was like riding a chain saw HA HA!!
