Great read here fermic. Good on you for getting her into the sport, and glad you're both having a blast with it all. Cool bike too.

playing with bmidds old gopro. She has started to get more comfortable standing, riding WOT, baby wheelies, and mild hill climbs... which means she wants more power. So a big more kits on its way from the UK, its an athena kit made for the yamahas so its only $140 shipped.

couple more clips from yesterday, operation big bore kit was a success. She looped it and broke the whole rear fender and license plate assembly trying wheelies in 2nd, BUT she is riding pretty much any trail we take her on, and this thing has zero issues doing 3rd gear hill climbs now.

Braap! Look out for that tree

Looks like she is coming along nicely. You guys are riding some rocky trails, not easy stuff for a new rider.

She keeps saying she wants more challenging trails so we keep going!

Its funny where she rode around the first two times out and was afraid to go over the bumps she doesnt even slow down for them anymore. Progressing nicely she is. I think ill be focusing on the suspension next since that will be the next weak point as she gets better.

Ended up pulling the forks and stem. Repacked everything and added 100ml of fluid to the forks. Really improved the front feel. She is freaking getting it now. Up to 250 dirt miles already.

Getting quicker! a few falls this time out as she was pushing herself a little more and the acerbis bark busters are taking a beating. Might have to upgrade them shortly
