Naaaahhhh. I'll be 42 next month, and I still play in the dirt. I need to find something smaller that this YZ-490 though. I weigh about a buck thirty and change, and you know how it is with a large 2-stroke bike. When you hit the power band in third gear, even at half throttle, you best be sitting on the gas tank or it's end over time. That usually ends very badly......LOL

Been there and done that! I, too, love the two strokes. At 42 you are a mere child; I will be 66 in three months. I don't recover quite as quickly as I did 40 years ago!

By the way, have you ever had the opportunity to ride one of those diesel trail bikes? I would love to have one.

I drive a little 1400cc Vauxhall Corsa diesel, it's small and underpowered but the running costs are very very low.

I operate mining equipment, all diesel.
Guess not quite the same as cars or 4 x 4's.

Nope. The last thing I rode like that was a Polaris 500cc quad, when I lived in Vegas last winter. I like two wheels MUCH better.

I would NEVER buy a four wheeler. I like grabbing lots of air jumping, and I don't feel safe doing that on a four wheeler. Besides, you can't go sideways in the air [tabletop] like you can with a two wheeler. Two wheelers are just lots more fun. Plus, considering how much four wheelers cost, you can get two dirt bikes for the same price, or even cheaper. Man, I wish I never would have traded my Honda CR-250 for this Yamaha YZ-490. It's just too much bike. Plus, I'm only 5'6 so I have to run along side the bike in first gear, then hop up on the seat....LOL - There's no way to damper the mono-shock to get it to sit low enough for my feet to reach the ground when I'm on it. The CR-250 needed a wrist pin though, and I didn't feel like tearing the engine down. In hindsight, I wish I would have just done that.

We had a four wheel Bush Hog utilty vechicle where I used to work. It would get through a lot of bad places where my 4X4 Silverardo would not make it. It was great for carrying drip torches and the fuel for them to the remote locations where we were control burnning. But for personal use, give me two wheels.
