THE WEEKLY FEED: WARREN REID, A COMPETITIVE DIRT BIKE UNDER $5000?

BLAST FROM THE PAST: Warren Reid

Warren Reid grew up in Southern California and rose to stardom during the 1970s and the dawn of motocross. He honed his racing prowess in the hot bed of So Cal tracks, worked for FMF welding pipes and earned a factory ride with Honda in 1977 where he won Trans-AM Support title. He went on to race for Kawasaki, Suzuki, Yamaha and after retiring, actually started racing flat track, speedway and represented ATK in off-road events and the Austrian GP! This shot came from Mark Kiel frozen at the 1976 Saddleback Trans AMA race.

Their goal is to introduce new riders to the fun and excitement of off-road riding and for 2020 they are introducing several dirt bikes to their lineup. This is the Kayo K6-R 250 and if looks are any measuring device, we’re impressed. The $4499.00 retail price is pretty tasty too!

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

The 1984 Husqvarna WR400 was a gem, and in my mind the last of the great Swedish off-road machines. They’d water-cooled it, the power was transparent and useable, the weight was still manageable and the rear suspension was the latest generation canted Ohlins shocks. When things started going to a single shock, all of the Husky’s gained tonnage and they ditched the mid-sized 400 powerplant for the big pistoned 500 and the fun off-road woods machine was replaced with a bruiser that worked for Baja but not in my little mecca.
