Mostly because of this thread I sold the big 640E and got a 2001 xt225.

The screen looks big in the pic, optical illusion or something. I hope to get it out on some camping trips this summer.

And the Wasatch National Forest is right out your back door. I'm jealous!

Time to start some real adventure!

Mike , really enjoy your posts here and in CBR 125/250. rode as you did this weekend, really anxious to start the riding season. Your 2011 CBR 125/150 is great , love the color scheme. On my ride this weekend [TU 250X] I checked out a 2013 CBR [Repsol] 250 , thats all thats ava in the smaller CBR in the US. Yours looks better [IMHO ]. Keep up the posts really enjoy your trips and group rides. In younger days [family vacations ] we were in the Guelph/Kitchner areas. Really loved those trips and days. We stayed at a resort on Devils lake. I 'm told its renamed now. looking forward to your next trip. CMS [Terry]

Thanks for the kind words Terry! Did you take any photos of your first ride? I was able to take the CBR150R out on 3 consecutive days last week. Really loving this bike. The new chassis just fits me like a glove.

I'm really enjoying touring and camping on my bikes (CBR150R, WR250R, CBR250R) and reporting on it afterwards. It's fun not knowing what the day will bring and then seeing the story unfold in front of you as you go. I hope to do more minimalist touring and report writing this summer. I have a ride planned to Wawa already, and anticipate riding to Bon Echo park near Belleville, ON this June too. Should be lots of fun. I was actually planning on taking my CBR150R out to California in August as well - but a friend now wants to come with me - and won't be able to make it until next year - so I've delayed those plans until then.

Terry - have you done any touring/camping on the TU 250X? Love the look of that bike too. If you have the opportunity - I would suggest doing the circle route of Lake Superior. Incredibly spectacular scenery.

Mike

My dad had a cabin near the border on Memory Rd on Pine Bay. Beautiful area to ride. I'm still pissed that he sold the cabin.... I sure miss the pancakes from Hoitos in the Finnish Club.

Nice Bike by the way

Byron - that's a nice area out there on Lake Superior. Beautiful scenery. At some point I'll take a photo of the bike out in front of the Hoito for you!

Not sure if 'minimalist' refers to the bike or gear, but here's my wr250r packed up for her first road trip. 10 days & 1,800m of riding in/to death valley. Now I just need to figure out a way to bring less stuff, cause riding with less is definitely more fun

My J.C. Whitney Travel Trunk has taken a lot of abuse for several years. I like it so much, I bought a spare when they were on sale for $48, delivered. At a price of $40.46, delivered, this travel trunk is an exceptional bargain!



These travel trunks come supplied with a very strong, metal mounting plate. The plastic mounting plates on some other trunks will fail.



You can pack a lot of stuff in the large travel trunks, and they are very easy to remove for the evening, or for hiding in the brush while taking an impromptu, off road excursion.



These travel trunks are very handy when taking a multi-day trip.



These travel trunks are also quite handy for grocery shopping, or running other errands around town.

Mine just came today. I thought it looked a little large, but then discovered that my DS helmet won't fit in there. The supplied bolts were too long, and hit on my fender, so rather than cut them, I got shorter ones. I needed to take the rack right off also, but it didn't take long. Looks like it will come in handy, though I may not have it mounted all the time. The price was right!

What's involved in lowering a motorcycle? I have an old dr250 that I started turning into a dual sport and gave up and bought a tu250. I thought about selling the dr but if I can lower it a couple inches my gf could maybe ride it to learn how to ride. My mind changes every 10 seconds on what I want to do. Thought about using it as a down payment on a dr650 of that terra 650 thanks to all who mentioned it. But I don't really know if I need that big of a bike. But sometimes it would be nice.

The price was so good, I bought another spare trunk, myself. The trunk arrived this morning, but I haven't had a chance to unpack it. My travel trunk spends most of its time unmounted to my motorcycles. However, I still use the trunk a lot for buying groceries and running errands around town.
