Thanks PW I really enjoyed my first outing on the bike. It is taking a bit of time getting used to not having engine braking, but time cures all  :ricky:

Ja the enjin braking is nice on the 4 t`s but seeing you ride and how that 250 jumps over every little bump on that sandy road makes me miss my old 300 so so much!! you must come and join us on our roof of africa spectator trips we do every year during the roof !! That 250 you have there will be like having the blond with the D`s at the varsity hostel year end party ........[THE RIDE OF THE WEEKEND] :mwink: :mwink:Enjoy

Can't see pics on cell so don't know what you had done. Few tips, Hyde pipe/bash plate for a KX250 fits my 03 model with a very simple mod at the back of the b/plate, had my fork done by Martin Paetzhold (spell?). PSP racing makes a weighted flywheel for +- R900, still need to get one. O ja, replace my farked rear rim with a 18".
Enjoy the 2t ;-)
