I am exxcited for you James. After I get my roof done (Dec 2/3) I will be looking at my finances. I also want a fair comparison between the TTR and DRZ. I would almost be tempted to buy the Yamaha just so we can compare.

Thanks Mike. I would tend to agree with the comparison between the two since they are nearly identical besides the mfr. I love that black on the DR-Z, but I am impatient, and the dealer has two yellow ones sitting on the floor.

This is about fun, not performance. These are play bikes.

If you look at my Avatar, I am cruising around on a 50.
Ridges avatar was a near mishap on a CRF100F.

I can honestly say the CRF100F is pretty close to the most fun I have had on a motorycle. My experience on 2strokers is all bad. Painful crashes that have results in hitting so hard, I was left weezing on the ground. I wrecked on the four stroke plenty, but nothing too serious.

I have no intentions of moto-cross. However, some metro areas have 4 stroke 125 indoor racing. Slap a set of slicks on the bike, get leathered up and race on indoor go cart tracks!

I've rode my nephew's crf100f and it was a tremendous amount of fun i rode it to the point that i was ether going to get flung off or brake it so i quit while i was ahead about 30 mins of play, I got to jumping and trying to pull wheelies and sliding the rear out and while it did do a little of it is seemed to me that a little more power like a 250 would've been the trick... but prolly to much more me being newbie and similar results to your 2stroker experience. My brother has since then has messed up his rotator cup in shoulder while playing with the 100cc honda.... His kid don't ride it any more if you like i'll ask by the time your ready to buy one, well let me rephase I'll ask him again after he has thought about it. I'm not sure what year it is but i'll find out.

the ttr is electric start... means it's a little heavier with the battery, but no kicking required. also $200 pricier... there is some cash back on the yamaha and i think $150 accessory credit on the 'zuk. that black drz looks really good in person mike.

The yellow DR-Z looks better in my garage.

Just got word that my uncle in Augusta has a dismantled RM-Z 125 (dunno what year) that he wants me to come and pickup to reassemble it. Wants me to sell it afterwards, but I don't know what the final out come will be if I get it running right.

Mike...keep us posted on your inquiries and feedback. Pending finances our anniversary gifts just may be little dirt bikes.

There is also a kart track about an hour away that does Supermoto racing. I went on an open practice day on an XR100 and had a blast. Thinking 125, 150 or 250. You can do all the work for me!!

BTW...you can get into the track about any day for $15 a person.
