Never been there, but this is the highest rated Mexican restaurant in Gahanna on Urban Spoon:

Abuelo's at Easton is a good place but its a chain type, El Rayo on Stygler just north of the airport is the best authentic Mexican food, but warning, its a hole in the wall and looks like its in Mexico.

Dang! Impressive turn out.


Hey Meef, just FYI, some folks had spokes come loose on there S10's in the first 1000 miles or so (before they were seated). Mine didn't have any issues, but it might be worth tapping them with a screw driver to test yours now that it's broken in.

I like Los Jalapenos on Hamilton near Morse. El Rayo has been hit or miss with me.

Thanks. Yeah I've been reading up on some stuff, that's on my list of stuff to do.

In other "bikes in common" news, today after breakfast I finally changed out the chain and sprockets on my WR, went to 14/50 gearing with a 114 link chain; and I replaced the swingarm guard and some buggered up screws on the chain adjusters too. The swingarm guard was the original, as far as I know, and was worn about halfway through. Swingarm was intact. This after the original owner ran a 12 front for who knows how long... so that was good news.

Hi all,

I originally posted this in the Yamaha WR250R Mega Thread, but I'm re-posting here for more input. My birthday and Christmas is coming up and I'm looking for gift ideas under $100 to give my wife.

The only mods I've made to the bike are a lowering link and a Powerlet outlet on the handlebars for my GPS. I have a Fly Trekker helmet, but no other moto/DS clothes. I have Harbor Freight stand, but no other motorcycle-specific tools.

Here's what's been recommended so far:

radiator guard
skid plate
body armor
boots
shin guards
msr chain breaker
air filters
hook & pick set
snap ring pliers
bearing grease

What's do you guys carry for trail-side maintenance?

You really want a skid plate and some barkbusters for even mild off road stuff. Those two items are pretty much the only mods to my current WR. The radiator guard is nice but I've had a WR with one, and a WR without one, crashed a million times, and neither radiator got damaged.

Boots, shin guards, body armor / pressure suit; all good ideas but personal preferences play into those so you'd need to try some stuff on and make up your own mind there.

Grease would be a pretty shitty gift, no?

Might also consider some bags, maybe a Wolfman Enduro tank bag, a spare tube fenderbag (with a spare tube), a small tailbag for tools and such. You probably have a Camelbak already from the Army, that's a good idea too.

Trail side maintenance... I hate working on my bike and I hate it even more in the middle of nowhere. Thats why I ride with guys who know more than me, I defer to their expertise. Nonetheless, I carry at a minimum, 12VDC electric air pump, 2 tire irons, a spare 21" tube and some patches, hand tools to fit all exposed fasteners on your bike, a good multitool, zip ties, little bits of wire, a few spare bolts, chain press tool, spare master links, spare fuses, a few electrical connectors, electrical tape. Probably some other little stuff I'm forgetting. On a dual sport ride I also carry a first aid kit and a folding saw. Not related to each other...

Skip generic clothes names unless she knows exactly what size make and model you want. Skid plates are almost a must have. Barkbusters too, but some factory bars bend no matter if they're on or not. Check with current owners and see if yours will go south easy with a single drop,if so add aftermarket ones and risers if you want them too.

Bags sound good too if you don't have any. I like my Chase Harper super deluxe hideaway. Personal preference comes into play there too.

Tail rack? New tires?
