Thanks bud, youíre not joking. R3500 :bueller:

I canít believe how expensive the soft luggage is. I will start a new thread and ask advice.

Flying Brick is selling a high quality copy of the Mojave - for about a third off the price...

Being Heritage day I thought I would take the older 250 out for a spin this morning.

+-15k km time for new teeth.
I am only a hundred or so short of the 15000km mark and my sprocket still looks brand new.

I dont want to mess around with the wireing harness and have issues with Honda at a later stage
That's why I just unplugged the plate lamp, and cut the connector off, I can easily solder it neatly back in place if need be. I used the blank from the front to keep the open plug in the rear nice an weatherproof.

Went past Honda today and got two pieces of electrical whires with the correct termenals on them off of a old bike harness. Connected them into the blank off  amd onto the GPS harness and bobs your uncle GPS in working order!

Yes thanks Teebag, I think the interest for this model has grown a lot since it's launch. There really is not 250 sized alternative to this bike with proper 18/21 dirt capabilities from the showroom floor. Really like my little Honda.

Being Heritage day I thought I would take the older 250 out for a spin this morning.

This reminds me when I was a young one, I had an XR200 and bugger all money. That little bike used to use so much oil, I'd keep topping it up with second hand car oil. It also slicked in the little screws from the carb butterfly and mashed them between the piston and the head....twice. Just filed the piston flat again and put it together and off it went again. It never let me down despite the abysmal abuse I gave the poor little thing. Fond memories.....

So the Mighty Rally is taking me to meet the cousins - Today we were introduced to the bikes, fitted some accessories, learnt about our fellow team mates and embarrassingly how little most of us know about Africa Tomorrow we ride the CRF1100L DTC at @HondaQuest boot camp, should be interesting.
