By the way, can the seat be made more comfy?  ARE there people who can help with that?

Just curious....



Sheepskin? Fake offcourse  :D
Lito is known to have drilled holes in the bottom of the seat  :D

Best advice? Just get used to it.

Change your diet - eat more starch, it'll help to increase the natural padding!  :twisted:  :twisted:

If you absolutely must get a Loncin, go for this model.
Stretch your buying power.

LX250PY




The LX250PY is China's latest offering as a truly high quality product, and this model has proved itself to be equal to its Japanese rivals in the same category.

It has an impressive list of features including:
Hi Torque 250 cc engine, air-cooled, 4 Stroke, efficient Japanese CV Carburetor, Electric Start, Heavy Duty Alloy Wheels and Suspension, Alloy Swing Arm, Silky Smooth 5 - Speed Manual Transmission, 890mm Seat Height, 18" & 21" Wheels, Ventilated Hydraulic Disc Brakes, Digital Speedo and Odometer, Head Light and Tail light.

Thanks to modern sports styling as well as excellent finishes, this model can easily be converted from a sedate trail bike to an aggressive trail blazer when the occasion arises. When it comes to good quality and value for money, Loncin has gone all out to make the LX250PY a worthy opponent for the likes of Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki & Yamaha.

I already eat like little Ms. Piggy - that's not gonna work.

Maybe fake sheepskin will help in the beginning stages.  You know what, if my butt could get used to a racing bicycle seat over 1000's of kays, I'm sure I'll get used to this eventually - just getting older you know and liking my fun to be comfortable too.  :D  :D  :D

such fun shopping for a bike and accessories  :D
EV, have you looked at a Yamaha TW200?
I spent a whole day riding around on one and my butt didnt hurt (not that I can remember anyway)
It is never too late or too early to be whoever you want to be.

Spike on his SkyGo 200 GY

....he rode some humps down at J.M.X.C

and this is only the second time he rode his bike

ok...so a 8 year old lapped him a few times...it was hard on Spikes 16 yr old ego.

Many pro riders at the track were rather surprised what the SkyGo could do. We will soon be testing the bike out at De Wildt. It will be SkyGo200, KLR650 and a couple of Wild Dogs.  

I think this is a excellent entry level bike for newbies, with full DS capabilities. Anyone interested in the SkyGo 200 GY can PM me and I will provide details of the dealer in Alberton.

Easy to sort out, buy a new bike and through the old one away, or buy KTM plastics, but thats double the value of the bike :lol:

Cono, bring tow rope. Tyre repair kits etc.

De Wildt is beeg and some places are very far from tar roads.
