No I don't find them twitchy. Because I dont ride'm no mo But when I used to race I road 250 Kawasaki 2 strokes. I just said Honda for some reason... being general actually. Today I have 350 yamaha enduro (or whatever enduros are called today). I just ride the jeep trails out here now... putt putt along.. but I love the ride of the cycle far more than an atv.. have you ridden those? they jar the begeezuz out of you!Originally posted by OperaTenor:
Hi Abecedarian, welcome to the Pti!
Hi Camper, you were an MX rider, eh? Honda? What was the last bike you rode? Where did you ride?
Don't you find Hondas to be twitchy to handle compared to Yamahas?
WoW! great! and you didn have to wait? wher do you live?Originally posted by Marye:
Well folks, I bought a 2005 Prius... on Saturday. Loads of money, insurance costs, etc. I could not bring myself to buy another car without some sort of effort on my part not to add to pollution. I realize that maybe I am just plain dimwitted about this and I will hear that all Toyota claims about this car are wrong, but I wanted to try.
If it is turns out I am an idiot, I will report back my findings...
Congratulations! Welcome to the club. I don't have a Prius myself, but my SO got one in January, and I ride in it and drive it fairly frequently. We both love it. We drove from NH to CT and back (and around CT quite a bit) for the Easter weekend and got an average of 53 miles per gallon for the trip--it was about evenly split between highway and back roads. I love driving it, and it can hold a surprising amount of stuff. The only two slight problems I have with it are the weird visibility out the back and the positioning of the headrests--but then, I'm quite short, which could account for both of those.Originally posted by Marye:

Actaully I haven't ridden cycles or ATVs in the desert around here either. Mostly because there is no desert around here. Although we are quite arid we are far above the deserts. For example my house is a mile high (5200)I and ride my enduro up to the *real* high county behind me which gets near 9000 ft.Originally posted by OperaTenor:

Another honorable mention to Yamaha for "Virago"; per Webster "a loud and abusive woman."Originally posted by OperaTenor:

I live on the Utah side of the border with Arizona.. the nearest Navajo res is 80 miles away but we have a small Ute Res just outside of town. I do run into carb problems becasue I can ride as high as 10,000 right on down to the Colorado river which is 1200. So I adjust or re-jet.Originally posted by OperaTenor:
Hi Analog, I forgot about the Virago, good catch.
Hi Camper, are you in Navajo country? If so, lucky you, that's God's country, IMNSHO. Great area to ride in.
Do you run into carburetor trouble when you go up to 9,000 ft?
