This sounds exciting!

What an oppurtunity!! Best of luck and enjoy!
Tip; will the bike not handle better if you ride standing up? Just asking, lot of people who claim better handling when standing over sitting. :pot:
Of course that is silly, please remain seated :mwink:

Got it all figured out today... well sort off!

First, a size 48 leather suit is just small enough that I can't stand straight.... Heheheheeee, but I think I managed to stretch it a bit!
Second, sit on tar, stand on dirt!  All good there.
Third, slipper clutches MAKE you use rear brakes... big time... 'cos the front brakes are not heathy on dirt!
Fourth, you need to seriously lean forward on acceleration, cos even those slick tyres find traction on dirt and those little bikes like standing up!
Fifth, always roll on the power...

So I got some dirt training in today on the 450.. what a machine!  Real fun!
I'll be riding the 250, so putting everything I learnt today on the 450 into practice, I should be ok!

;D 

Let Saturday come now!

Awsome Judes. You smoke them tyres and make us WDs proud. I'll come root for you, all things being equal.  :thumleft:
