    Nice one mate ! Bike looks awesome. Is the plate covering the right indicator ? Actually, dam that's a big plate. Vic motorcycle number plates are half that size.

    Just had my first on road pillion experience on the FZR.
    It went well, very smooth and the passenger had a good idea of what to do as well.
    I reckon my 10yo son will be the next passenger once i find him some decent riding gear.

    Tried to get the Across started for someone to view it to buy. It didn't start, but they're going to buy it.

    The only 'pet' I want to leave home is the friggin' dog that 'someone-not-me' bought back in 2011 - "coz the kids'll love her"! Could have bought a couple more 2fiddy's to play with for what she costs per day - and I'd rather clean up oil spills than dog turds and vomit!
    Agree with Murdo - Mymia, enjoy your new 'baby'. :thumb_ups:

    Latest additions to my Teazy: She has mirrors (so I can see the blur behind me - my eyes are shot, so I see blur in front too), and Headlight Protector. I had a mate cut these for me from a template I drew up in Adobe Illustrator, then I moulded them using al-foil, an oven, and some swearing! I'm fussy - it took me a couple of goes to get the fit the way I wanted it. EXACT.

    Mirrors.jpg

    Light_Protector.jpg

    I'm also making a Headlight Cover with Red Vinyl over it - so it makes the cowl look like a 'race-fairing' - why? Why not! Just fer fun and coz I'm all creative and ****.

    Fired her up and revved her little guts out on the weekend - 'smokin'!' Sounds and smells so sweet. She needs a good run. Proper road test not far off as I managed to clean the leaking fork seals with the old '35mm Negative Film' tool and fitted a new oil cap due to the old one being a touch cross-threaded.

    Also managed to get the FZR going - to the point I could ride her around the block (much to the joy, amazement and awe of all my neighbours in the court). Mind you, no seat, so the oversized and protruding battery I was sitting on really hurt my 'mangina' (that one's for you Ruckusman :lolsign:).

    Have a top day fellow 250 nutters!

    Looks like plenty of clean parts on it - most of that chrome appears to be in good nick too!

    I took the front disc off the XT250 today to clean it up, had baked on dirt etc, gave it a bead blast, etch primed then painted with caliper paint, also did the caliper and caliper mount at the same time and replaced a couple of bolt's for the cable bracket and disc protector.

    Today i went out for my first offroad ride on the XT.
    I met up with another 3 rider's (Husky 510 motard, DRZ400 motard, and a WR250F) and we went down to some track's down south, including a few hill climb's, a few soft sand track's, some down hill run's with massive channel's where 4wd's rip up the dirt road's etc.
    I came off through the sand after having to stop for another rider that went down, took a bit to get my bike started again but it did, then i got the back wheel stuck on a root and dug it into the sand up to the axle.
    It was pretty hard to get it out again, and i was so worn out i had to cut my ride short.
    To give you an idea on how hard it was, all up i did 35km's off road which took us 1.75 hour's to get through.

    The other 3 rider's kept going for another hour or so after i left.

    I'm really feeling it tonight, my right leg is the worst from all the kick starting

    Would the IT200 hundred have been more fun in the circumstances? and perhaps a little bit lighter...

    Yeah around 25kg lighter than the XT,
    but the Husky and DRZ both got through easy enough, the DRZ inc rider was around 240kg

    Today I picked up a ZZR250, well most of one. Another crazy idea project.

    I also did a count of bikes, I have 12 and 3 quads that that belong to others. Of the 12, I've marked 7-8 as keeping, 1 as sold and only 2 that are going to be fixed up. This all sounds expensive and time consuming. And I've ran out of space for them.
    (PS. This was yesterday, I fell asleep typing it).
