Member Info: When I was about 14 I had my first ride with a 50cc two-stroke moped. My dad used to ride a Piaggio Vespa from his early 20''s, so I guess his influence on my brother and I came as no surprise. I got my first proper bike at about 16, as a replacement for my bicycle. When I was 20, living in Athens, I got a Yamaha DT 125R, a real motorcycle, with real brakes and sufficient turning abilities. I kept my DT for almost 3 years, riding on every kind of surface, from off-road trails to go kart tracks. I changed the DT for a WR 450F. What a bike that was! Great power delivery for a good wheelying machine and probably the best everyday enduro bike. My WR got me to my first proper off-road mini-adventures and welcomed me to the fantastic world of enduro riding. Last year I sold my WR 450F and got a KTM 125 EXC. In 2007 I decided to take part in all the races of the Greek Enduro Championship, getting 9th place in the Enduro1 category. In 2008 I''ll be racing in the Greek enduro championship with my new Husqvarna TE 250ie, hopefully competing in the ISDE 08 that''ll take part in Serres, Greece. Story ends ... the story continues. July 2010. I did not compete at the ISDE 2008, but I did race the WEC 2009 and the Red Bull Romaniacs 2010. I''m racing a Beta RR 520 this year, sponsored by the Greek Beta improter, The Fuoristrada Co. Things have changed a lot, you see...

Info: My dear little DT125. Iīve literally done everything with it. From off-road riding to everyday commuting and short trips to greek islands. A perfect bike for the city but the soft and quick suspension and the lack of power set its limits.

Info: Καλώς το... What a beauty! I just came back from my very first ride with my new Husky TE 250 ie. What a bike that is! Lookswise it''s just poetry in motorcycles and as for handling and power delivery, the bike is awesome. This morning I woke up at 5:30 am, waiting for the sun to come out so I could ride it. I think I''ve fallen in love with this bike.

Info: I liked this bike a lot. It may not have enough power, but this together with the great chassis and suspension make it so much fun. It looks great and you don''t have to spend a fortune in maintenance or repairs.
2006 Husqvarna TE 250

Photos: 6
Info: Actually it''s a 2007 model. My favourite enduro bike! I rode it during a Test-Ride Day organised by the Greek Husqvarna and KTM importer. The bike handles amazingly, offering loads of safety and feedback to the rider and its power is delivered so sweetly you can turn the gas on while still being mid-corner. Plus it''s a beauty in that white and red livery.

Info: Although it almost looks the same as the 06 model, the 07 125 EXC has got better suspension settings and better power delivery in both low and high rpms. The photoshoot took place in an amazingly beautiful place called Limni Evoias in central Greece.
2007 Yamaha YZ 125

Info: I had a really great time on its saddle. Too bad they no loger make enduro versions of these bikes. Its suspension is nearly perfect, and the power delivery is linear. Not bad for a two-stroke 125!

Info: The ''07 WR250F sounds like a sheep but in the right hands it can bite like a fierce dog. A great bike that''s simply too expensive to buy (9.000euros in Greece). For more info on the bike .... you should buy 0300 magazine, or log on to www.0300.gr.

Info: That''s during the annual KTM off-road test ride held in mout Ziria, in Greece. This year the guys there prepared a nice track with a 15mt long tabletop and some nice turns. The new 450 EXC-R is a great bike. New chassis, new engine and a great overall feeling.
