Nice, I hope you find it as good as Geoff's review claims.

Thanks, as do I.

I have wondered if Geoff was paid by Yamaha to promote the product due to ktm sales catching up behind "Australias highest selling motorcycle"

Quite a turn around from being an advocate of the 350cc machine to a Wr450.
Although, I have always been partial to a good conspiracy theory myself.

I got all excited 12 months ago but still havenít seen one on the trail.... ended up with a low hour second hand 450EXC for a good price. Still keen to know which way to jump next time around so keep us posted Hindenburg.

The answer is a huge NO.

He currently rides both a new 2020 350EXC and a WR450 among other things.

GB is enjoying life.

Im glad to hear that,

Out of all the Youtube vids I have seen, Geoffs seem alomost like a mates opinion. No sales type gimicks ect, just a straight down the line, "this is how it is".
His bike set up tutorial are also great to watch.
