    Central NS here, Toy's for Big boys the Honda dealer there still? Haven't ever been there but thinking of heading up that way to Atlantic Motoplex to see what they got for riding gear. Congrats and I'm sure you'll love it for commuting round Moncton!! (such a well layed out area, compared to Halifax for a DS bike IMHO)

    So nice to hear from other Maritimers! :-) Yes toys for big boys is where I am buying my Crf250l. Atlantic motoplex I haven't been there since last summer but they have lots of gear there. That is where I bought my Yamaha scooter. I agree about Halifax, not to dis on the city but I would find it very scary riding around there. Just have to be that much more aware. Pedestrians are getting run over quite a bit over there so drivers and walkers aren't being careful. Anyways I really like it around Moncton. I can't wait to head out to Albert County and Funny National Park. There is a nice trail that brings you down to Martin's head right on the beach for a bit of playing in the sand. :-)

    I am running the Cycra hand guards with an Easton bar and risers. The guards require a bit of tweaking but will fit. Plan to use your bench vise for some old school bending of the Cycras. Be strong and be patient. Don't overdo it. A slight bend goes a long way. When it is all said and done, the guards are in a perfect position for hand protection.

    I recently relocated to Virginia, so not a lot of time to dedicate to my lrp... After the dust settled, I saw that Scott had released their stabilizer, anyone install yet? I've heard they are awesome, wondering if they work with the stock bars. Quite a bit of cash, but I've heard the handling improvements make it worth it.

    I just got the big gun evo r exhaust system, and I have two problems. One, it doesnt fit the factory header (at least without an exhaust gasket it doesn't fit, which I ruined trying to pry out of the factory pipe) and also, it does not retain the factory heat shield as far as I can work out. Am I the only one with this problem, or is this a common issue? I'm wondering if they sent me the wrong pipe.

    I have the full system so I can't say if the exhaust fits onto the stock header, but as for the heat shield/white plate it will not fit. Only the fmf system comes with a bracket to fit the stock muffler shield. However if you purchase the big gun header you can use the stock header heat shield.

    Just finished a 500km trip where I rode down to do some recon work on a sheep/beef station behind National Park (north island, NZ). Bike is stock with the exception of a 13t front sprocket. To summarize: the crf250l ( aka "Recon 1") handled twisty back country gravel roads, tight/steep single sheep tracks and everything else without a hitch. The IRC stock tires are fantastic in the drought conditions we are having. 750km's so far, I will change the oil and filter very shortly..... Can't wait to post some photos once I figure how to do the URL thing from my pix on photobucket.....:clap
