Changed the headlight assembly w/ steel bracket for an UFO Stealth headlight plate

Does not change the look too much, but thats still 2lbs less.

Despite it was a pain to adapt/install, im now happy with it

I'll still be more than a year until I move again, if everything goes according to plan at least. No need to start packing yet
Was actually on the phone earlier today, and there is an interest in sending me to one of our factories in the US once I am done here. Will have a talk again in a month or two to discuss a bit more in detail what they would need and what I would want from my next assignment. But again, it'll still be more than a year.

Not sure how that is related to either his or my talk? He doesn't hope to move himself, and for me it's not really about hope. If my company got something for me that I would be interested in doing I go, if not, I won't. And if I go for my company, they pay all the shipping.

LOL ...... we all know that thing won't being doing a wheelie like that in its stock form.

Good looking bike but, a Super Moto should have a bigger engine. IMHO

Looking for some input...I have been checking out the 250L and other bikes in the same cc class.My concern is...will I get bored with the power or lack of it?
I would be using the bike off road most of it's life,I have a Sprint St for the road.(Luv the Triumph)



The reason for the 250 class:
  1. price (can't beat the Honda)
  2. weight (more fun throwing the bike around)
  3. getting back into the dirt (been awhile)
Any views input would be appreciated!

Thanks

Yes .. and more if you dont plan to use it as a dual-bike (where it is a good & economic compromise)

Sure !

As i said, adapting it was a pain ... went too high due to front fender, and the upper legs goes into the fork clamp, so i trimmed them. The remaiming part have to be fixed to the 3mm alu plate when it will be dark enough to adjust the headlight beam

You guys are really going to a lot of work to improve your new Honda's, I never thought that when I purchased mine that I would go through the bike like some of you have. I guess I've never been that much on performance and if I wanted more I just purchased a bike that had it already, that is I just rode what the factory produced, other then some farkles for comfort or convenience. I debated for two months on rather to buy the CRF250L or the WR250R and the $2300.00 difference never came into play. I knew that the WR would blow the Honda away in just about every pace you could put it through, but I still went with the Honda as this was the type of bike I wanted at this time. I guess what I really don't understand is why the little Honda, when you could buy a nice used DRZ400 and blow this bike away for even less money, I know, I have owned three of them in the past. So guys, what is it about the LRP that makes you do what you do?
