Probably way too much since I immediately had to order $100s worth of shit to get the dual sport kit sorted out. I was doing some craigslist crisis shopping\motorbike therapy purchasing.

I am on my way to pick it up in just a moment.

Nice Looking XR

Well just for something to think about. I paid 13 franklins for the 95. It is used well but not abused. Put a timing chain in it, pulled the front end and adjusted everything. installed a new (used) front rotor and now she purrs as it should.

It did come with soft bag and rear tail racks, new rear tire and a large Clark tank, a full XR only exhaust, bark busters and skid plate. So I don`t feel too bad about the price.

Lets get together and hammer them on some single track in the local area.

Dan

Hmmmm indeed. So, the weather has flip-flopped and Sunday (possible sun breaks betwene showers) is now looking infinitely better than Saturday (very wet). I would be happy to come out riding with Matloik & buddy. OHV sounds good (which one?). I see 'Eddyville' (sp) down near Eugene, that is a heck of a trek, is that where you are planning?

I was thinking Kingsley / Post Canyon OHV or Eddieville out 40 miles east of Hood River, on the WA side a few miles north of Maryhill, toward Goldendale. Kinsley is at 3000' or so, so it will be cold. Out east it might be drier. Another option is Pinemont OHV in HR. I might also go check out the Trials event on Sunday, if there's no riding on Sun. I could accommodate a Sat overnighter, if you were so inclined.

So, yeah, I'm flexible.

Sunday is actually a better day for me anyway - But, I think I will just wind up tooling around closer to home and getting used to the bike.

If anyone is interested in THAT kind of riding\exploring, let me know.

It's sure hard to plan around the weather right now. Every day brings on a new forecast! I ain't committing to nuthin for another day or so. Short of a driving rain I'd be up for riding someplace this weekend - maybe even both days.

It's been changing all week, I feel like I can never rely on the weather forecast more than 24-48hrs in advance! I'm game though! The lady of the house prefers sunday but can do either. Hoping that you guys won't mind riding with a bigger bike...

Anybody???

Weekend Weather Report
Portland = Sat Sun
Hood River = Sat Sun
The Dalles = Sat Sun

Damnit

Put a new exhaust on the WRR the last few days, and want to get er out someplace on Saturday - at least for a couple of hours. Kinda hard to get excited with that forecast though, any other fools planning on getting out?

Saturday

Hey Scott,

I have been wanting to get out and try out the XR250R. If I remember your from the West side.

If you end up over on the East side give me a shout.

If anyone wants to take advantage of today's dry weather with an on-pavement ride, let me know. I'm in Portland today--Versys is here, KTM is in Hood River. Gonna swing by BMWOR and Bob's Beaverton mid-day, and then ...

My plans were cancelled and I want to get out and ride for a couple hours-was hoping someone was in the mood too. Went up Washougal River Rd this past week. Bleh, I'll probably just work on some crap in the garage or maybe try to work at my second job....
