    Here's a few shots of the Kootenays on our way to an HU meeting in Nakusp, British Columbia in Western Canada. Amiga's on the XT225 and I'm on my well-loved XR250R. Perfect bikes for this type of remote riding. Bulletproof, maneuverable, and easy to extricate if you get into a bind.

    These are taken on a ridge-top off the north end of Kootenay Lake in in the province of BC, Canada.

    The trail snakes along the ridge for several km. Dotted with, creeks, waterfalls and meadows the whole way.

    That's the Purcell range in the background with the Four Squatters ice field on the right.

    And then ride down into the valley for a soak in a remote natural hot spring that has been "improved" by the locals.

    This whole region is riddled with old mining and logging roads that go into some of the most spectacular country you can imagine.

    Here's mine. It's a 1982 Suzuki DR250.

    It needs work. I orders a service manual, so that's the first step. Second step will be putting the carb back on.

    G'day Goanna,

    well, just to let you know, I replaced my trusty Team Serow with another Yamaha, this time called Team Cabra! She's a 2003 build XT225 from Brazil and was unused but had been used as a parts doner for another bike. So I got her an absolute bargain, sourced parts from all over the place (thanks to the guys n gals over at www.xt225.com) and she's running like a train.

    Anyway here's a couple of shots for you, starting off with her as I'd just got her on the road (and no that isn't the driveway to my home)

    [​IMG]

    And the next once fitted with a pannier set designed for a Suzuki Bandit, en route to the HUBB meeting at Ripley.

    So far she's covered 15k, of trouble free riding over the last 7 months.

    All this for the price of a Chinese bike!

    Regards

    Reggie

    They are Acerbis hand guards, work really well and protect the levers from breaking, I have "tried" them already.
