I like your lateral thinking on this subject!
makes me wish I had bought the cherry dirt dr350 I passed on to avoid dealing with the plating issues here in TN
time to start making a rack for my little dr250

1. Awesome job on the rebuild. Ingenuity, thriftiness, style.
2. Getting over on the DMV is a special kind of victory you break out the good cigars for.
3. I've always been partial to the DR350. Amazing little bike, and a shame Suzuki didn't put more R&D into it.

Well done.

Got my ADV stickers in and on the bike yesterday...


Also my Bell bicycle speedometer is still hanging on. Over 4k miles later, through the highway, dirt roads and desert adventures. I verified the speed with GPS and its spot on up to 70mph. I'm impressed with its durability for being $12.
