Go to the Thumper forum, there's a show us your thumper thread, but if you want one with 250 cc or less, I'll send this there and you can see if you get any interest.

Sweet XT Where are you located?

I have a pair of 250cc dual sports myself. I hope to setup the DR somewhat like your XT is setup and the CR will stay a bit more focused:)

DR250SE recently purchased, almost totally stock at the moment.

Hopefully will have heated grips and a big tank before long.

Then I've got a CR250R that's nominally street legal, but is not really suited for extended street riding. Still, how many bikes with legit tags do this?





I also have a husqvarna WXC250 that's for sale, see sig

Does this count or is it only dirt riders?




I just got a better rack and I'm fabbing up side cases. Got waterproof lockable tool boxes from Mcmaster-Carr and will be making brackets.

Nice setup. Can you post a picture of the drink holder?

I would like to see you set out on an adventure with the sole goal of not spilling a drop of a drink placed in that holder for the duration of the trip! It would also make for a good trip report

the idea of not spilling the drink could be a little tricky.. see how what i can do,
the tank is the acerbis 23lt (6.075)gallon, for the Honda xr600 or 650..

I've heard of him, bought all my parts from him. I'm just waiting for him to get the magneto setups in from Germany, then the my twingle will have all the juice I could want. Did 1000 miles this summer on it in short trips. Shakedown for next year....
