My son and I ride plated TTR230s as our single track bikes. Good bike for the cost.

Soon after dualsporting my 2005 Yamaha TT-R250, I sold it. Ever since doing that I have regretted that move. I'm currently looking for another one. I may have to buy two of them.

My TTRtwofiddy, wearing its adventure clothes.



It's an unstoppable little tank, even my horrendous riding cannot stop it.

As I've now had my TTR600RE for a few months I have changed the following bits.... first was the number plate holder As its the RE (electric boot), it had the cheaper Sach's rear shock, soon replaced with an Ohlin, good old eBay -





Does sit rather high now though... and a less restrictive exhaust......



Next was the poxy 2 gallon tank .. so eBay again -



Changed the fork protectors for some gaitors, a set of UFO "bark-busters" and all thats left is a decent set of proper KNOBBLIES...

Do you have any more pix of the bags hanging off the tank? Who makes them and how well do they stay on in aggressive riding...what do you carry in them?
Thanks

No pics of them on the bike, but here's what they are...

Tusk ATV tank bag


http://www.rockymountainatv.com/prod...dFamilyId=3143

I use two straps made from the $1.89 webbing/quick snaps from wally world, had the local shoe repair/alterations place double-stitch them to the bottom so they buckle around the front of the bike and over the tank/under the seat. Only cost $8 to have them sewed....and it helps the bags stay put. They don't move at all when strapped down, even on aggressive trails but they need the straps to be that secure. They come with velcro-double stick, but that's worthless.

They work great for a cheap solution, and don't interfere with me much at all. My knees hit them, but not enough to limit my movement they really don't stick out far. I also have a tank bag, which is just a Cortech tank bag with straps...nothing fancy. Tail & fender bags are Tusk too...both very good for the meager price.

As for what I keep in the saddle bags I keep a pack rainjacket, first aid and some energy bars in one side, and tire pump, patch kit, homemade jumper cables, fuses, clutch cable, and other odd bits in the other side. Tools and tubes go in the tank bag & fender/tail bags. Works pretty well, I don't camp off the bike but I can do long rides with all the stuff I need, and it's all cheap and easily sourced.
