Bikes too?

Recommended Posts

Guest Fox300exchic

So I was thinking of getting a bike. Im not getting rid of my quad, I just want to learn how to ride both. Anyone have a bike and if so what do you recommend? My husband has a 2002 yamaha 426. I rode that the other day but I have a hard time reaching the ground. I went to turn around on it and it stalled on me, I fell over and it landed on my leg. I had to wait for my husband to come and get it off me. I dont know if I just need to LEARN to ride something that size or if I need something smaller. Any ideas?

I rode a Yamaha 80 a few times, but it wasn't fun, too many things to remember! (it was my 1st time on anything I had to shift gears on that wasn't a car) so I'm sticking with 4 wheels now... :o

I am about the same height as you. my brother had a Honda XL350 that he let me drive and I found that it wasn't to big for me and my feet could touch the ground. hope this helps:)

Maybe its just that im so use to something with four wheels. His bike might have been set up a little different too. My husband is kind of a big man so his suspension might be a little stiffer. We just recently bought a vehicle so we havent really been looking for a bike for me but I will start again in a few months.

      Being confined to the farm with the corona virus pandemic, I have started working on long abandoned projects.  I have a 95 Yamaha Moto 4 350 and the CDI box went bad (I think).  Finally broke down and spent the money for a new one.  It had the same part number as the old one, but the old box as 2 extra wires on the pig tail and not all the wire colors with the new box match the old box, so I'm not sure how to hook it up.  Have searched the internet on and off for some time but can't seem to find anyone who can help.  Does anyone out there know enough that they would try to help me?
