That XT is designed to give many miles of dependable service. It looks like B8 is giving the bike a new lease on life with all the servicing it's finally getting. (I still think the swingarm pivot bolt is serviceable.) I'd likely slather it in a layer of boat trailer wheel bearing grease though. (It sheds water the best.) I also think you'll come to the conclusion that the more you ride this bike, the more you'll like it. And you'll find that it ticks a lot of boxes that new bikes just don't. (Reasonable seat height and total weight being 2 of the biggest.) Looking forward to seeing your adventures on the little XT, and ride safe! If you see some fat guy on a Husky 701, or Triumph Tiger, shoot him the bird, as it's likely me!
