Where might I find a pix of "Jimbo"?

EDIT: Google found it!!!

EDIT: TRAINMAN: Way back when, a WR250R owner made brackets similar to the TCI ones and put a Wee-Strom windshield on it...looked very nice. I have one of my leftover homemade windshields I made for my WeeStrom as that motorcycle had some real aerodynamic noise issues. Guess I gotta buy the brackets and just putz some like other folks here

Some guy on the minimalist thread made a windshield from a Harbor Freight face shield and used Velcro to attach, though I think that was on a "Brand Y". Our wind deflector thingy above the headlight is angular, so it might not fit so great, but could be trimmed fairly easily to whatever shape you wanted.

No after market tail

I simply removed the funny lower fender and the license light and put a 1 inch strap on for a plate holder. No money and looks great.

yes it is. added a nomadic rack, replaced the dirt only tires with Dunlop D606 DOT legal tires and ordered a front sprocket guard. here's a larger pic. the muffler is the blue titanium with the carbon fiber end.

How did some of you manage to mount the white side plate with aftermarket exhaust? I assume its some sort of bracket, does anyone sell them?

I notice that your exhaust has no heat shield like the OEM. I have a Giant Loop Coyote bag and it drapes across the plastic cover and part of the aluminum heat shield. Do you carry any overnight gear?

Good for you! I also discovered that dealership on Craigslist.

I also found a local Honda dealership selling the bike for MSRP, without adding any bogus charges. A dealership in Orem, Utah is doing the same.

Monarch Honda, in Orem is where I got my bike. MSRP OTD, no other fees. It was totally worth the drive from Vegas.

According to Best Dual Sports, it's the only Q4 blue titanium with the carbon end cap that FMF makes. I also have the Powercore but it doesn't look as nice. ;) I'm in Walnut.

National Cycle Spitfire...cheap and works well. This is a carry over from my DR-Z. It sits a little high on the CRF, but still works well.
