This bike feels like a 125 with a bigger motor
Ok peeps, virgin no more. After about 35 miles of southern ohio technical single track, rocks, roots, hills, ruts, whoops and water crossings and being old and out of shape I have the following to report. First, never, never, never ride without handguards in this stuff. I haven’t got mine yet. My hands hurt!!! This bike feels like a 125 with a bigger motor. Ergonomics felt good to me. I was immediately comfortable on this bike. Plenty of motor on this bike when needed and I could run third gear in places that I would have been in 1st or 2nd on my kdx. Did I mention it has brakes? I found out how good the front brake is, and it hurt. In the tight stuff this thing went where it was supposed to go with little effort. Keep in mind that I never messed with the suspension settings and I am 5′ 8″ 145 lbs. Will be playing with the settings soon. Some people may want to raise the handlebars. Overall I am completely satisfied and am looking forward to actually setting the suspension up for me. As I am writing this on my phone I will cut this off now and continue later.
