Got an email saying my Big Gun Evo Eco was on back order from the other company posted earlier. I emailed Tom at tom@biohazardcycles.com and he sold me one for $175 shipped. Tom was great to work with over email and sent me an invoice within 10 minutes of requesting one. Figured I would pass this on as its the cheapest slip on by a long shot I have seen.

Sorry Dave this thread moves fast..


That's Lippencott Pass going down into Saline Valley coming from the Race Track. Awesome road, though tricky in a few places and cold as hell this time of year.

The LRP was just perfect for Nancy though, and easy to pick up. ;)

How does the bike hold up after a lot of drops?

I've got a sweet price lined up at a dealer in Toledo, but I need to know I'm not buying a $4500 pig-in-a-poke. Send me a PM...I'll kick in $$ if it'll help.
Hey man, sorry I can't help you out I'm down in VA. I will tell you that I got rid of my Honda Shadow to get the CRF 250l and am very happy I did that. My cousin sold his street bike and got a WZ 250. His bike is a lot quicker then mine but for the price the Honda is definately the best deal out there. It doesn't wheelie well but Honda's aren't really known for that. It is a solid bike and I wouldn't trade it for any other dual sport. I've heard of people just doing some minor adjustments to increase the HP but I am a little more reserved because I can't afford to get hurt on it. Good luck and be safe!

You need to use an external photo hosting site, I use Smugmug. The trial is free and basic service is cheap.... NO ads, no spam, no nothing but pro quality service. The main reason I promote using SM instead of one of the free services out there is the founder and owner of ADVrider.com is also the owner of Smugmug. We have a FREE, Ad Free good thing going here on ADV thanks to him and a little support is the right thing to do IMO.

Once you upload the photos to SM or some other free and Ad ridden BS hosting site, copy the "share" code, then click the little box when your in the "post a reply" window that looks like mountains with a postage stamp. Then hit OK, then post away.

We like photos here on ADV.

Good luck and if you have any questions feel free to ask, though searching around the the site will help you get your ADVrider.com groove on better and ask the questions in the right place.

When in doubt, type this code in Google, substituting "posting photos" with anything you're looking for:


site:advrider.com, posting photos



Start here and read all the stickies, then read the stickies at the top of each forum your in. Will help you understand what's going on here, maybe even help understand why some guy is sounding like a douchebag, but in reality he's talking to you like you're an old friend standing around a campfire....

Welcome to ADVrider!

Well... it did very good with no major issues except one of the many falls was right onto the perfect sized big rock that bent the shit out of the radiator. Normal wear and tear for a team Lost Rider Adventure.
Luckily no leaks on the radiator, and I'll be taking it in to a local auto shop to straighten it out.
I'm hoping for a more stout radiator guard to become available, I'm not convinced the ones made from pressed aluminum sheets will provide enough lateral strength to survive a sideways hit as well as could be. I'm sure it would help though and I haven't seen one in person.
Luckily Honda made the radiators out of some pretty flexible metal and it wasn't a ride killer.
Hopefully these guys will make one for the LRP:

https://www.bulletproofdesigns.com/p...or-guards.html










Honda also made the shift lever nice and flexible and while it did get bent up a few times, it was easy to straighten out to keep on riding, no foldable one going on this LRP, would rather bend the lever than break the shaft instead when we hit just the right rock and there's no give.




We were able to run heated grips and heated socks with no issues of running out the battery, so it seems the charging system is stout enough for comfortable cold weather riding.





The tool tube and fender bag carrying essential spare tubes and tools for trailside repairs in places that didn't interfere with the packing of camping gear and extra fuel worked out great too.






The Highway Dirt Bike handgaurds took the punishment as usual in stride, transferring the hits directly to the top clamp and not breaking or bending the Protaper bars. The Flatlands tail rack was essential for securely holding a gas can with ROK straps and providing tie off points for the camping gear.
Overall the LRP took the first of many beatings (rides) to come... Most of the way I set this bike up comes from lots of experience riding in demanding conditions, Honda has a well earned reputation for being bullet proof.... It's proving to be a perfect DS bike for the less aggressive rider and we hope to see many miles of good dirty fun out of it.
So far it's Nancy Proof.




Here's another short video of the latest LRP ride.

Hey is the 250L a full sized frame? I have an 04 crf230f and it is about 80% full sized. I wonder where the 250L is?
