Off today, since I have to work on Monday.

tossing smoe warm work clothes in a bag, and headed north.
trying to decide if I want to drag the trailer and bring the XR80, Z50 and DR350 home to work on them. that might be a bit ambitious right now though.

it will be for sale soon.

daughter has outgrown it, she has moved up to the XR80

Ive got to fix an exhaust leak, and swap rear tires on the Z50

or you can.

lets get together and talk about it next week, Ill take some pictures and videos of it this weekend though if you really are interested in it. great bike for kids, geared low like a tractor, stupid easy to start and operate, and I ride it all the time, often with a kid on the back.. haha

I hope my wife realizes there is more than one kind of motorcycle for different purposes. Now I'm itching for a dirt bike!

Hey, I have a 2004 Yamaha TTR225 that hasn't been road in a couple of three years. I cleaned the carb and put a new battery on it last spring. Started it up once last summer and road it around the place for a bit. Drained the gas out of the carb, put it on a trickle charger and been sitting there since.

It need to be rode - Any of you wanting to get a bigger bike for the kids or wife for off road, let me know - it can be had cheap to one of you locals for a good cause.
