Bit hard for a 250. I'm from the day of the old 480 CR's and it was tough on them. ( I assume you mean and two-stroke? )

Many years they ran CR500s ( Two-strokes ) and they were the only thing. But the bigger 4 strokes cope with it. ( anything above 450 )

I used to was always was gunna do it ..... life gets in the way ... never did .... and now I'd die if I tried LOL.

Yeah 250 stroker. Geared properly and tickle ports a little. Ultimate enduro weapon for me. I'm not in it to set records. I just want to run it.

Price rolled his ute (this is Oz, it aint a bloody truck) in practice, patched it together and I have heard he finished top 5 on day 1 whilst leading the bloody bikes

Great online coverage. Tuned in just in time to see the cars cross the line.

He drove straight from the fin7sh line to the chopper to get back to the start for the bikes.

Mate of mine did the Finke years and years back. Pretty sure it was on an XR400. He bought a KTM 200 EXC (?) but life (kiddo) got in the way of him competing again. Now he just sponsors riders
