I've got a new project on the go. The idea is to modify a little traily to do some very remote, long distance touring. At first I though the WR250R would be a perfect bike for the job but I reckon its best to keep thing simple ( ie - not fuel injected ). I had a look at at some second hand 400cc bikes but didn't find anything I liked. I decided it was best to go for a brand new bike, but which one? I had a chat to the local MC dealer in town ( Honda & Yamaha ) about the bikes the cattle stations use. They have the CRF 230 or the TTR250R and the dealer reckons the Yami puts up with the abuse from the ringers better than the Honda. So, today I picked up my new TTR project bike. First mod was the bash plate then a seat cover, its a loose fit and sould be perfect for stuffing a bit of extra foam in there.
