Mine is brand spankin’ new, got it last month, it's an XT225. So far I mounted a tail rack and a GPS, I have brush guards on the way and some luggage. I’m getting ready to do my first short trip on this bike in a few weeks and a longer trip at the end of the year.

If you ride it everywhere why is that not adventure?

Have you noticed all the views on this thread... hmmm....looks like there is interest in other bikes besides big singles and twins.

This was my "adventure bike" nearly 30 yrs ago, still have. Only have slides of past trips, should have them put on disk. Was plated and went everywhere with this one too. Currently retired except for a few vintage appearances now and then; much prefer 4 strokes for the public roads.

I cannot tell what bike this is. I thought maybe a CRF150F but that bike in the picture has a removable subframe, what is it?

See post title- it's a CR80R "expert" or "big wheel" (19/16 F/R)

Dave Miller did the early conversions; BBR does 'em now.

Added a Baja Designs kit to ride anywhere in Calif. (at least up to 55 mph).

What size is the old sweet IT? Very nice. I use to ride a 1978 IT175 a freind had and loved it. As fast as the IT250 and handled like a 125! The ITs were actually all great off road as long as the road didn't include a radical MX track. Those things are way fun on a vintage MX track though! Nice bike!

Thanks.

Like what you rode this is a 78 IT175 that I bought new in 78 from a small mom and pop dealer long since gone. Had it certified road legal and rode it everywhere. Somehow it survived my youth. Have not really ridden it much since 89 but always cared for, sort of like an old friend. Will start and run fine but it was/is too loud to run on public roads without the detuning kit. A simple and to the point type of bike, just like the bikes people are posting on this thread.

No offense my friend but that bike and comments about it at most belong on the scooter threads, or better yet Pocketbike Planet or Cycle Forum's pocketbike section, (all good). The only adventure you have with one of those things is either when you run off the track or something breaks while you are riding the thing.



AND WHERE'S YOUR PROTECTIVE GEAR; Show us your real bike.

I have every right to say this because I have 4 here at home; from a Polini 911/6.2, to a Chink 911 rep, a C2, and a 110cc mini motard.



C'mon let's get back to the biz at hand;


SHOW US YOUR 250cc OR LESS ADVENTURE BIKES.



I know you are out there; are you afraid that one of your KTM or BMW buddies might see your post. The whistle has already been blown on me, join in on the fun.




I'm planning to make a solo run from SE Michigan to James Bay in Sept 07 (leave labor day or the next day) on my DR200SE(as long as nothing goes wrong with bike before then, otherwise I'll take my DR350SE). Will cross into Canada at Sarnia, Ont; pass by Barrie, North Bay, onward and upward into Quebec. The Bay is reachable by road on the Quebec side. If interested in joining in check out www.jamesbayroad.com to get feel for what may be coming and if still interested pm me. With my DR200 I "cruise" at 42-45mph and intend to avoid the superslab routes. To the beginning of James Bay Rd from my home it is about 760 miles, then 360 miles on James Bay rd, then 54 miles on Chisasibi Rd to Chisasibi, then a final 10 miles to James Bay. I'm looking at 2-2 1/2 wks to cover the nearly 2400 miles for me. If there is any interest I'll start a new thread.
