I Ride:
Xr250!

Sold this 16-17 years ago to my godson, asked him earlier this year what had happened to it and he said he thought it was in a town called Ludlow not so far from me. His dad said did I want it back?
"You can basically have it but its a bit of a mess now"
Spent 5 years parked outside.
I won a championship on the XR, she was bored out to 280cc and a trail bike really but would always get you home, boring really!
Rear wheel rebuilt, carb refurb, brakes rebuilt front and back, evict the mice out of the air box, full service. Still needs a front disc and the rear shock is more bounce than damp but nearly there!

I have a 94 with the 280 kit. Probably my favorite bike, and super comfortable on the trail.

I Ride:
Yeh, she's a RJ 1988, 30 years old!
Forgot to say tyres, tubes, chain, sprockets, fork gaitors, hand grips..... the list goes on!
I remember buying her from a lad from Aberystywth, we agreed on 1200, he invited me in for a cup of tea telling his wife 800 was a good price! He'd stuck 400 in his top pocket!
The XR was probably the easiest bike to ride, last lap of a 4 hour 'hare and hound' no matter how tired you were the XR would get you home.
