Yeah. That brings back memories. When I was a young Adventure Rider in the foothills of Tennessee, my friend had one of these. He and I would switch bikes often, I had a Honda XL185. We would "Ride the World"......As we knew it.

That was the first motorcycle that I ever rode. I was about eleven years old and I rode on the back with my cousin down their grass airstrip.

That IS a pretty bike. Oh well, I just bought that Harley ...

funny thing happened tonight. I went to start the beast to further diagnose the "cough" I experienced while riding it home. I turned the key and the lights etc. flicked on for a second but then nothing. No start. Bad battery, damn! Got to wiggling the terminals that I thought were tight and sonnaofbitch one was just BARELY wiggly. So I held it while turning the key and the bike fired right up. I'm hoping that the "carb problem" I was experiencing on the ride home was nothing more than a loose battery connection vibrating on/off while I rode. I've got my fingers crossed ...

Xr

That motor is super clean. Hardly any wear on the side cases. It has a Mikuni TM40 pumper carb (supposed to be the best aftermarked carb you can get. Don't know anything about tuning that one but we'll get that Pig fired up.
