Thanks Brah! She has been a great bike, well over 30K miles and has never let us down or been in the shop. Still runs like a scalded cat. Bought her as a "Leftover crate "deal for $7.5K new. And got the Bags and windscreen for free with a Moto Guzzi coupon out of a cycle mag 2 weeks later. Best damn money we ever spent.

Thanks again.

I built a jig with a rod that a hole saw rides on. The same jig is used with a different insert to locate the new pivots for welding.

The mighty Hyosung GT250, got me from Melbourne to Perth in 7 days. Despite me not oiling the chain once the entire trip .


My favorite photo of the trip. I swear the sky is bigger out there.


And just to show i fit on the bike as well. Didn't have the shoulder bag full of crap or my sleeping bag bag strapped to the top on my test pack.

I am curious!
How do you put the bike on the stand? Do you just pick the bike up an put there or do you need two people to pick up the bike?

Those xc-w 500 only weigh 238 lbs. pretty easy to move around.

I just pick it up and set it on the stand..........The bike is fairly light!
I have to-there is usually no one around to help.

Just picked this up last week. Fairly well sorted already for my type of touring also.



It goes well with the other. I just wish I could keep both.
