After I purchased the WR250F last year, I quickly found that the stock handguards tend to produce very curly brake and clutch levers if you dropped the bike. This prompted me to fit some UFO MX style handguards.

I've been very happy with these guards, they've been bent, bashed, squished, mushed, all the while protecting my fingers from all but the hardest hits, which they also reduced significantly.

Hot Minibikes

Posted by simon

Since our current poll is about minibikes, I thought that the time was right to write a little bit about them.

If you want a cool 50cc minibike, is there anything out there other than the Honda XR50? The Yamaha PW50 just doesn't cut it, and Suzuki & Kawasaki just have PW50 clones.

Honda seem to have cornered this market. simply by being the only one there. They must be looking at the increasing popularity of these bikes, and rubbing their hands together! After all, that 50cc engine has got to be 15 years old!

Iron Maiden - DVD Review!

Posted by simon

No that its realted to dirtbikes at all, but I was in a shop the other day, and saw a DVD on special. Now there is nothing great about that, they've always got the latest hit movie on special, I picked up Spiderman from the same place.

Anyway, this DVD was "Iron Maiden - Visions of the Beast". Now, I cant say i'm an Iron Maiden fan as such, but I have somehow over the years acquired a copy of the "Number of the Beast" album, and its one of my favorite casettes (yes, still on casettes) for the ute that I tow the dirtbikes around behind, so perhaps it qualifies as being dirtbike related.

Your next bike?

Posted by simon

The recent poll on dirtbike.ws was about what your next bike purchase will be. The results are very interesting, as most people will stick with the same brand If they are very happy with the bike. Brand loyalty also counted highly for people who would stick with the same brand.
