Well, gonna most likely take a step down the road next week. I have been mulling over selling my bike for the last little while. While I enjoy riding, my lifestyle at the moment just doesn't let me ride the way I like to ride as much as I would. My bike sits lonely in the garage. So with me moving again this month I decided to put my bike up for sale. And I have an interested party.

So while ill most likely miss my bike, I'm sure it'll be happy being riden The way it should be. Sounds like bringing the dog to the farm eh?

Lol

Will still stick around the forum though. I enjoy reading all the interesting stories.

Pete,

It is nice to see you drop in for an update. Perhaps you will be back on a moto in the spring. In any event, I wish you and yours a Merry Christmas.

Safe Travels,
Richard

It's been over a year since you were last here. Are you married yet or are you still going back and forth between home and the USA?

Still unmarried in the technical term. Just too much red tape. I enjoy my work. So I'm still travelling back and forth. Not a bad drive, and after so many years in pretty used to it.

Abd I've been lurking. Lol.

Well, got the fever again. And if things go as planned, I'll be picking up a 1982 sr250 sometime this week. Am told it's running good. Steal of a deal for 4 bills. Thinking about putting some clubman bars on it and Cafe-ing it out a bit. I like the look and for the riding I do (short hops around town and to work) it should suit me.

I'll post some pics at some point. It'll be nice to get back at it.

Wasn't familiar with the SR250, searched for pictures, and many examples had either been cafe'd or made into a scrambler (scrambled? :mrgreen: ). Looks good either way.

Got the safety no problem. Gonna pick it up on Thursday since I left the day after getting it for the ole USA.

If anyone has a line on a r/h side cover I could use a new one. That's the only issue I have seen on the bike.
