After careful deliberation I finally threw common sense out of the window and opted for a smoker.   EEK!

New to the family is a 2000 Kawasaki KDX200. From everything I have read, they are very durable and make excellent trail ridng bikes. Perfect for herding my 2 boys on their little TTR's, and having some extra fun on my own too.

It didn't happen without pictures, so here is the first official picture (crappy phone jobbie). My youngest (who won't be riding for another few years) insisted I take a picture of him with the new bike. I hadn't even had chance to unload it off the trailer.  Lol

Nice. Those are great trail bikes.

I was riding single track with a couple smokers (KTM 300 XC-W) on Sunday and they were going on about how light their bikes are and how much more I must be working with my pig of a bike (KTM 530). They offered to swap bikes, but I suffer from GAS (gear acquisition syndrome), so I didn't put yet another expensive toy on the list :-)

Always wanted one of those. Thought they could be a perfect trail bike. I got sidetracked by that 4 stroke thing...

The KDX is street legal in many countries Smile  They're pretty low output for a 200 2-stroke, but that's a good thing: they last longer between top-ends than motocross bikes and still build power, well, like 2-stroke.

Very fun bike, the KDX, of course I'd only ridden one once :/

Congrats!
