New bike time… '63-plate CRF 250 M Supermoto (well Mildmoto more like)
Red mudguard replaced by black one for some reason and previous owner clearly never heard of chain lube or Muc-Off, but other than that it’s tidy, and at a price that won’t hurt much on depreciation. 1300 miles and main dealer bought, so should be a sweet little runner until I’m in a financial position next summer to upgrade. Is badly needed as the XT660 is ready to die so it’ll be nice to have a bike that’s not in need of constant maintenance. Pick it up next week.
Take the mickey if you want… obviously not a hardcore KTM or modded DRZ but I don’t care. Should be fun playing in traffic and not an embarrassment to be seen on like the multi-coloured, rusty, smokey, leaky XT. Speaking of which, where is the best place to get rid of a tired XT? Gumtree? Ebay? Breakers?
get the offroad tyres for it… that will be a hoot in the mud
put some piccies up
I bet that will be a lot of fun,
what’s wrong with the XT? I know a mechanical guy who wants a green lane toy.
I got myself a scooter aswell (honda s-wing 125) got it for a bargain.
Well here it is… The Beast :ermm:
My partner has already christened it as ‘The Ant’ because she says it looks like one
Only done 55 miles on it so far but it’s already proving better than the sum of its parts. Probably not a long-termer, but for the next 8 -10 months it’ll do me fine.
I have a CRF250L for the green-lanes, not sure how similar it is to the M, but it’s a very capable bike. If you need a a bit more oomf, you can probably do an air box mod and fit a tasty FMF pipe, but it’s a bit loud for the lanes, so I’m sticking with stock
How much do you want for the xt? I might be looking for a cheap project in start of September?!
Doubt much needs doing as it’s a 63 plate
Why does it have a black L on the plate?
Coz it goes about as fast as a learner :hehe:
Good question, and tbh I’m not really sure what it’s worth. A friend of a friend is coming to see it at the weekend and I’ll see if he wants to offer anything for it, but if he’s not interested then it’s open to offers. I got the bike near enough free so am not looking to make a huge profit on it. It’s an '06 plate with 50k miles. I had to do a fair bit to get it up and running when I got it and it’s been running fairly well up to 6 months ago, but is now smoking like a chimney and drinking oil like an alkie on Special-Brew. Needs quite a lot of time & money spent on it now to pass the MOT which is due in 2 weeks hence why I’m wanting rid. If the viewer this weekend doesn’t want it, I’ll post up details on here and it your for beer tokens.
congrats on new bike!
Get a pipe on it and BRAAPPPPP!
