Baja vs TTR
Hello - first post on the forums! I've enjoyed reading and learning, hopefully you can offer some help...
I work in Northern Uganda. A few friends and I are purchasing bikes locally and planning a tour around East Africa (Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Burundi, Rwanda - then back to Uganda).
My budget and location restrict me to the following two choices:
98-2001 Honda 250cc Baja
95-2000 Yamaha 250cc TTR Raid
I am wondering if any of you can give me advice regarding these two bikes? (I realize this is a quite subjective question...)
From what I can tell - the Raid has an electric start, bigger tank. While the Baja is known for it's reliability and simplicity.
Any advice, insight would be appreciated.
