Well that's it. After 4.5 years of fun my trusty Yamaha TTR600RE has just flown the nest 10 minutes ago. That bike I credit with really getting me into biking after a brief stint with a Chinese 300 previously.

The TTR was a faithful companion on many trips including Snowdonia, Brecon Beacons, Yorkshire Dales, Lakes and Pennines, several Safaris in Norfolk as well as most significantly taking me to the French Alps in 2012 with just a punctured rear tyre to report.

Sad to see it go but I wish Ferdie all the very best with it and know that the simple, old school technology is well proven and hope that he gets as much fun and as little grief with it as I have enjoyed.

So thanks to Ferdie for coming down and parting with the hard earned and also thanks to The Doctor for bringing him (seems he spends a lot of time transporting Ferdie around......but I rewarded him with my last but one ATR sticker for his troubles!)

Bye TTR, you will be missed

Bye bye.......
Sometimes you're flush and sometimes you're bust, and when you're up, it's never as good as it seems, and when you're down, you never think you're gonna be up again. But life goes on.

Jusr remember Ferdie, the TTR will do 20mph more than the DRZ, this means it'll hurt a hell of a lot more when/if you fall off....

Enjoy the new toy!
Steve

Thanks Steve. I won't be going any quicker only when on roads. It's about the same as drz in the dirt as my suspension was shot. Off to clean to and fix the side stand this afternoon. Well pleased a she sit at 70 mph easier. See you in spain, if not before

nice looking bike, looking forward to seeing it in a few weeks. I still fancy a big air cooled single but I have my little TTR250 real workhorse. I find big trail bikes use a different technique, best to bounce through a bit quicker sometimes. As my son said after riding mine, " what is it about big trail bikes that are more fun than smaller bikes that are built for trails?"
