I'm maybe asking the wrong people for an objective and unbiased opinion, but here goes anyway ?
I'm looking for a second bike, as a local run around and for a bit of green lane / trial stuff.
The extremes considered so far vary between a Montessa 4Ride and a BSA B44 or 50
I may end up with fiddling with the beeza more than riding it, and I know the Montessa is only good for short on road distances.
So, been looking at the SR40.
There are a couple for sale on line, but have not laid hands on one yet.
What do the folks here think, are they OK off road?
Well I've done it now, bought the CCM ?
Looks they biz, and runs beautifully!
One little issue (easily sorted); the gearing is very much road orientated. The thing will get up to the national speed limit very, very easily, (?), but is not happy pottering about a field.
Sprockets fitted are 15\38, which is far too tall for what I need (a bit of green laneing and the ability to get there ). So a reasonably comfortable 60mph as top would be just fine.
Some US forums suggest 15\47 sprockets for a DRZ400 (same engine), what do folks here think?
