Michigan MI Husqvarna or Yamaha 2 stroke riders

Recommended Posts

Just curious on where you've bought your bikes from and if you liked the experience, no close Husky dealers by me, there are some Yamaha dealers but haven't seen an smokers yet, and i know that down state has some.

Would be looking possibly at a WR300 or a YZ250

Thanks

Well if Kzoo's Husky 250 smoker can survive being repeatedly thrown to the ground then I guess that speaks of there durability.

I dig my Husky WR250. You should also consider a Gas Gas. The Gas Gas dealer is one of my accounts, and is a good guy. He will be up at the ROS with a 250 2t.

nuudles Has a yz250.. 09 I think. Check with him.

I"m almost done with mine. Well let me rephrase that. Its in the going back together stage. Motor is just about done. New crank, bearings, and seals all around,piston, fibers, chain slider, rebuild rear shock, one new linkage bearing and a few more little gizmoes. The only thing it will need is a decent rider.Much easier than a 4 stroke and cheaper. I just need a full day. I'm getting the itch bad.. Just hope I can afford the gas to get to the trails.

Skid plates, GPS units, you name it, if you look close enough, its laying in the trail!!!

Maybe thats why I'm so slow, too much time looking down at the trail, for eBay foder?

X2 on the cool aid, I had fun, following Don Marsh's FB page, as he hammed it up all winter, about his new orange scoot, only to come clean with the new 4 stroke Yammie!

I been riding 4 strokes for so long, (red ones) that I don't think I could start a two smoker?

But to your original question, I can not recommend a dealer. I use service honda for parts, and a local guy for my cylinder head work. Sorry.

Yep definitely miss my YZ, that was by far the best bike i've had

Sounds like you'll have a new bike when its all said and done

A 300 is definitely the way i liked to go, just not sure which flavor, and the yz's have Eric Gorr making a 295 kit so thats 1 more option, just gotta see how it all pans out

Gassers come in a 300 too!

I saw that and that doesn't help my thinking, not to mention the Gassers also look bad:moon:

      From everyone else's experience have you ridden anything in Michigan that compares to riding the Tomahawk B and C loops in Wolverine?  I'm finding myself becoming a Tomahawk snob because I can't seem to find any other trails that compare to the Tomahawk.  The elevation changes/hills, the woops, the tight twisty trails, the rocks the roots just the all out flow of the trail is amazing.  Everything we have tried this year to me doesn't have that wow factor and just seems flat and twisty.   
       
      Anyone have any other recommendations to try before the season is done?
       
      Thank you

      got lots of high resolution small area maps,  jeremies VVV maps are great,  but I'm looking for a single map that shows the trail,  and the roads and highways and the cities and towns -  trying to plan my next assault on the MCCCT,  trying to do it "modular"  with a series of Home bases,   so a map showing both would really speed up my process

      I was thinking that there are a few riders from out of state that might not be as familiar with our trail system/DNR websites. I received an email from the DNR today with some great links that I thought I'd share for anyone who is interested. Note, all can be accessed by the first page, but since it's hard to navigate on a phone sometimes, I added individual links as well.

      I just joined the dual sport club as well as this forum.  Grabbed an ‘06 KLX250 and am looking for fellow locals to ride with (have plates and ORV)..  Also have a truck and free time for getting north.  I’ve been riding a road bike for many years (Magna 750 currently), but the off road aspect is new to me.  Since getting the bike, I’ve been logging miles on local dirt roads, but there’s nowhere to really get off road in Washtenaw county.  Planning a trip with a bunch of quad riders near Gladwin at the end of the month, but hoping to hook up with some other bike riders specifically sooner and/or later.  Being new to off road (albeit fairly confident), my better judgement is telling me to avoid heading out solo right away.  Any friendly folks willing to ride?  Or even, any other advice?
