Well I finally got to go riding today after nearly a year recovering from injury, and I finally got to ride my new to me KDX200. Although I have bought a few different parts to go on the bike I decided to keep it stock for my first ride. I must say that allround I was quite impressed, and the motor has a bit more go than I thought it would. Now I see why people love them so much. It has enough power to get you out of trouble, but not enough to get you in trouble, what a great mix. However I discovered that the tires that come standard on this bike are not too flash for anything other than hard pack, a little wet clay and oh where did the traction go. I can see I will have to do some suspension work and dialing in to make the suspension better as I seem to feel every little bump, and I am used to my last bike (KLX450R) soaking up major bumps effortlessly. I assume the shim stack mod will stop every little bump being sent to me as a gift from the front end. All in all I had a great day riding a great bike that I think will keep me well entertained for quite some time. I know this is a bit of a nothing post but I am just so happy to be riding again, however I think I was the slowest guy there, oh well. Go the KDX.
