yes and the 650 is also approved in WA, most learners would need to strap on a few nappies to ride a 650

8 horsepower? They'd have to be antiques!

The RXV is currently unregistered, so dirt only. It belongs to my guy, who inherited it from his brother's estate. When we go riding together that's his bike.

It's a bit of a weird one to begin with, but it gets even more complicated... His brother didn't find the Marzocchi Shiver 45 forks to be up to scratch so he replaced the whole front end with one off a 2006 CRF450R. He was an advanced trail rider who loved doing big jumps so he tuned the suspension to suit.

I took it for a ride the other day thinking I would hate it, but I loved it. The front was really loose with a wandering feel and the rear broke traction without too much throttle. I was dreading finding sand but when I hit sand it was really stable. The rear spun up a bit but that's all. It was much better handling than my Yamaha, even if it doesn't feel as user-friendly.
