    Thanks. Actually, I am a member there too. It's just hard for me to find stuff there. Plus, my boyfriend keeps bragging about this place.....

    One of the drawbacks of a plastic tank is no magnetic tank bag. Someone of the XT225 forum posted about a $8 tank bag from Rocky Mountain that goes over the gas cap and hangs off each side. I ordered one... hopefully it holds enough. I will post a photo with both Clarke tank and Tusk tank bag when they show up.

    If anyone else plans to order the $8 bag (or anything else from that site - rockymountain atv) I found a coupon code for 10% off.

    I just ordered and it worked. The coupon code is: 96639

    It's right in my post. The coupon code is - 96639 - just copy and paste that number into the promo code box when you check out.

    edit: HERE IS THE LINK TO THE TANK BAG

    But shorts and flip-flops? I guess she has never experienced roadrash or engine burns....(NONE of plans are going down, but if we are challenging ourselves or some cager-turkey pulls out in front of us...)

    I have bought a couple of bags like that, the one problem with them is they have nothing to attach them on the bottom. You need to add something or they blow around in the wind, they were designed to sit on an ATV.
    Some have velcro on the back to attach to the tank, again, works on an ATV, not on a bike going 50 MPH.
    Sewing a loop for a bungee cord on the bottom should work.

    oh i've preached to her many a times about safety gear. normally when she goes on a real ride, she's pretty good. she was just testing the bike.....100 yards in 2nd gear.

    How did you do the wheels and tires like that? Rims, spokes tires? That is sweet.

    Either I'll put some pebbles to drop when someone is riding up my a**, or your bungee cord idea sounds good...but where could you affix the bungee cord...of course I have a slightly different make - XT250, I wonder if a bungee would bend the plastics.

    Does the velcro hook the sides of the bag together underneath the center of the tank? I can't tell from the pictures...

    no, the Velcro is sewn in the center, tank side of the bags. It barely holds them to the tank, but it does hold them, at least to 60mph or so. They don't flop about anyway.

    I've tried searching ADV for XT footpegs and its futile. Tried the XT225.com site and the original vendor on the footpeg thread doesn't have a current email. Checked E-bay, nada

    SO......... Does anyone know where to purchase some decent size footpegs to replace the OEM mini pegs? Need them for my wife's bike.

    Thanks in advance

    Finally found an XT here in 'Bama.
    2001 XT 225 for $2000 seems like a good price to me.
    Picking it up tomorrow morning. Already planning the mods lol !
