You are welcome. I spent some time at Wright Patterson AFB with the Ohio FEMA USAR Team that was Stationed there for a while.

Ohio does have some nice places to ride.

780 miles traveled in three days on a Yamaha XT-250.


The Hills Bridge built in 1878…




MEDIC: Thanks for great pictures of the Ohio countryside and bridges. I just found your post and it brought back fond memories. My last USAF assignment was at Wright Patterson AFB from 2003-2007. I loved riding my KLR 650 on those backroads all over Ohio. It is a beautiful state with some great riding. I used to ride south to the Ohio River and up the river on a Sunday afternoon or over to the Wayne National Forest or when I had the time all the way to the foothills of the Appalachians in eastern Ohio. I'm back home in Montana but every fall I get the urge to go back and ride those back roads--maybe this year.

Hello!

Just wanting to say hello. it's good to see more XT250 riders out riding and reporting their adventures. I am usually on A.R.R.S.E forum on the southeast regional forums. i will be posting some pictures and a small report of a 6 day ride that myself and 9 other guys are going on around Georgia. our route will start from Augusta to Okeefenokee swamp to Tallahassee, Fl to Dothan, Al to Talledaga, Al to Bryson City, NC to Clayton, Ga back to Augusta. I hope to share some good things like you all have shared. I hope this forum keeps going.

Hi AlinUtah,

well after covering over 75,000 miles in 3 1/2 years and it only needing consumable parts, (apart from accident damage), then I reckon my XT250 was one of the greatest bikes I've ever owned.

I have an XT225 now and that's covered 18,000 in a year and is proving to be equally reliable.

These bikes really are the Swiss Army Knife of bikes.

The only people that don't give them respect are the ones that haven't ridden them.

Regards

Reggie

Heading out tomorrow to the back roads of Carter and Lewis counties in Kentucky.
I hope to take lots photos and maybe some video.

Im in the middle of getting ready for a trip to Alaska on my Wee.
Leaving 1st of June.
I'm real excited so a little gravel and dirt roads on the XT seems to be on order.

Fred

AL, curious as to which racks those are. I ended up getting a Coyote, but those Wolfman Expeditions looks really good on your bike.

My DS Ride around Georgia

Well i am back from a trip around Georgia. The ride consisted of dirt roads, forest service roads, old stage coach roads, gravel roads and pavement. It was 1850 miles round trip. It took 10 of us 6 days to complete the journey. I really put my XT250 to the test. It is a great machine. I had no problems at all other than getting a flat tire and a clogged air filter. Wasn't able to bring along another paper air filter so I fixed it by back spraying it out with carb cleaner.

The Journey

Just before my trip around Georgia. I had 1,850 miles of dirt roads, gravel roads, forest service roads, and pavement to go. The cleanest the XT is until I get to some creek crossings in Tennessee, North Carolina and N. Georgia

Hi CajunE,

I'm looking forward to reading your report.

Why not post it over on www.xt225.com (where XT250's are part of the community?

Regards

Reggie
