Hey everybody! I just got home from picking up my new (well, almost new) 2002 KDX 220! It was barely used and looks practically brand new. I took it for a short spin around Napper's yard...totally awesome! Thanks to my dad and Napper for helping me out with the new ride!

I sure hope Spring comes around REAL SOON! :aj: :yeehaw:

The "Cabbage Patch" is alive in the Thompson camp once again. Anybody looking for an XR 200?

Ummm, Smit-Dog's bike?

Congratulations Nathan! You'll love the bike, and you'll be fast on it I'm certain!

No, actually. This bike only had a few hours of use on it...the engine's probably just barely broken in. It's still completely stock. She sure is a sweet bike, though! I'm going to have a LOT of fun!

Yep, so it looks like I'm going to be spending a lot of time out in the garage in the near future!

I hope so! But if not, at least I'll be out having fun! :yeehaw:

Welcome to the big leagues! You'll have a blast on your new green bike! Tell use more about it? Does it still have the stock tires? If so, pick up a set of S-12's or 773's, that stock 695 isn’t much help in Michigan sand.

We got handlebars, handguards, new front tire and stiffer fork springs all lined up for it. I still remember what to jet it at I think. Compared to his XR 200, this thing rips!

(turn on Hemi commercial voice) SWEET!

That's to cool Nate. If you progress as fast as you did on the XR, you will be quite the rider at the end of the year!

Congrats on the new ride Nathan! Now aren't you glad you weren't "FenderXR-200Guy".

That's it, I'm keeping mine. The tide is turning..... a sea of GREEN MACHINES (well, maybe a Husaberg or 2)!

Seriously, you'll become a better, more confident rider coming off that XR. And you've got one of the best KDX minds at your disposal for wrenching tips and tricks. (Fred - Make him do it all!).

How about some pics of your new ride?

No Magoo, it' still available. I can meet you with the bike at the bridge if that money order is ready.

Thanks everybody!

I rode it down to crb's house to show him today (he lives 3 houses away)...that front tire really likes to lift off the ground in 2nd gear! I'm so used to having to dump the clutch, seat bounce, and pull up on the bars to get that front end up just a little bit...this is a bit easier ;) I gotta' get used to the INSTANT power of a 2-stroke!

Hmm...lemme go see if I can find my dad's digital camera so I can get some pics up here...
