Put a deposit on a new one at Lanes. Picking it up Saturday.
I had purchased a couple of new XT bikes earlier in the season from Lanes Yamaha as well. I was pleasantly surprised to see a photo of Lanes Yamaha (and of course the new XT in front). Been dealing with them for a few years and they are wonderful people to work with when purchasing a bike. All my bikes have been Yamaha's because of the price, reliability, great staff support and their dealership being close by. Enjoy your bikes!
Southwest of Ithaca.
Excellent! I bought both mine new from Lanes. I’ll buy two more from them in the spring.
I think you bought yours the same week I picked my first one up.
I Raced for Lane’s in the 1970’s. Great family.
I'd like to make a visit to your garage. And thanks for leaving one of the XT's for me.
Lanes mentioned another one was bought when purchasing mine. Wondered if it was local to see if I could hook up with a ride buddy. Didn't know it was Ithaca though. I keep to the goat trails and backroads of the National Forest's around my area. Enjoy your ride with your family next season, sounds like a great adventure. Oh, great photo btw, pretty cool you raced for Lanes. Here's a blast from the past of my DT250 in the early 70s.
Nice DT! I’m actually in Newfield, we ride all the time, mostly seasonal and dirt roads.
She's loaded and ready to head home.
Congrats! Nice to see another XT out the door. Remembering when mine shined like that. Try to keep em' clean but they're attracted to dirt and mud.
Made some Front lower fender risers
Fall rides are the best... after the heat of Summer.
And, after a few Seasons, will confirm:
- Lower Front Fender riser plates
- SunStar 16-Tooth Countershaft sprocket
- IRC TR8/Dunlop D606 tires
- Progressive Suspension 11-1114 fork/Eibach (800.225) 550 pound shock spring
- Tusk Lithium Battery
Pavement of dirt... what a machine.
Very nice XT250L.
it was spring time...
Exploring Zars Ranch in Floresville, TX. Maybe taking a nap in the dirt on a hill climb.
Another nap in the dirt and eventually the bike AND I needed a break. It was hot! I was huffing and puffing so bad and eventually the clutch started slipping, so I had to stop and let the bike cool some.
That's a great idea, but my lower fender is already busted, the mud I got into causing the bolt holes to break, so instead of replacing it with another low fender and adapting it, I'm going to replace the whole fender with a one-piece high fender.
