Yeah, OK, Grasstracker. I live here in Japan and I'm not quite sure what the draw is. Perhaps just that fact that you can't get one in the states makes you want it more?

Just think that it looks like a fun bike to ride plus what MoBill said

Ahh, the secret lives we lead.
Actually, the KLR 2fiddy started it for me.
These smaller displacement bikes have too high a grin factor to ignore.

Honda 250 AX 1 Adventure bike

Does anybody have info or actual experience with the DOHC 250 AX 1 as a minimalist adventure bike? There's one for sale and I'm considering it.

I had a TW200.... but moved up to a XT350, can I still be in the club?

I'm a minimalist at heart

What year XT?
Some people on the TW forum wish we had a TW/XT350 hybrid.
We're all jealous.

I got the last year they were made a 2000... I really liked the TW, but it just couldnt keep up with my riding buddies on the highways. The xt350 is perfect, small, light, nimble, can do 75mph (barely ).

I have owned it for about a year and I love it!

Only bad thing about it is the shim adjusted valves and the week front forks But I just put some new progressive springs in the forks so hopefully that solves the suspension problem

You can be a minimalist on a 350 just start your own club 200cc up to 350cc only, and it must be a dual sport, no loud pipes allowed. I have a TW200 and a DR350sex.
We have our own club here in the bay area and those are the requirements.
XT 350's are nice..
