With the dry weather I had to make a choice. Get out and ride or do work? Well....




All this to put power into the barn

How was the ride today?
That bike used to be a younger kid's that is on the forum. I am pretty sure he traded it in on a WR450 that he plated and started a thread about in Thumpers.

Found it http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...ighlight=Wr450

From the looks of that kids thread,it looks like he worked his tail off for his bike.

You NE guys get all the great stuff! I need some of these pathways in SW Ohio!

No problem. Seems like a pretty good responsible kid. I may not have shared if he was posting pics of it upside down in a ditch.

Always better to buy bikes from adults that way you know the maintenance history.

Thanks I spent a few hours today going over it. Changed the oil and the air filter ajusted the chain took all the pollution crap and safty switchs off. It seems pretty clean over all. Went for a ride but it got cut short when the fuel light came on. Might try again tmw.
