What do you think? PM me if you got any ideas :)
Kinda looks like the rocks behind our shop, but I doubt it. What is it you're searching for? Points of reference, or reason may help significantly.

Looks like a great place for a geocache. Probably only a few hundred places that look like that!

My advice would be run 50:1 or even 40:1 of a good premix and pull the dust covers down, clean seals real good, pack some wheel bearing grease in behind dust covers, and go. Should be good. Looked at that bike ad myself earlier. Good bike.

A fan kit for a 250 2 stroke???? What? Are you sure you know what you're talking about? That bike will run fine on pump gas.

a fan kit is cheaper than a cooked top-end

A cooked top end? WTF are you doing? Holding it wide open with the clutch pulled in for forever? Do you even know how to ride?
