xl100 rider, new to trails.
Permalink  
 


Hi all Dom here. 

New to green laning this year and doing it on a 78  Honda XL100s!

IMG_2520[1].JPGIMG_2438[1].PNG

 

the bike does well but struggles on the road work to hang on to the pack.

Missed a mint uk ttr a few months ago as it was the right bike, wrong time. A ttr is top of my wish-list closely followed by a crf250l. 

I need (promised Mrs no more bikes) to sell a bike first to fund a trail bike so hopefully be in a position to purchase Jan, feb so if your thinking of selling around then......!

Welcome to the fold. Came from an XL185 to my TTR, although did have a Sherco 450 for a couple of years. Really enjoying mine and the advice and information on here, combined with the TTR shop, adds to the experience.

If I had an xl185 I would have stuck with it! its the road work I struggled on.

The XL185 I had even tinted with rose glasses is not a patch on the TTR. Have fun

Still have the 185 family heirloom), it's now done over 100,000miles commuting, green laning, the odd enduro and even a trial. Now earned a quiet retirement and restoration as I have loads of original bits. Great little thing and would go anywhere (slowly). TTR feels plush though after twin shocks, the electric start is great and it is really easy to ride.

XL185 pictured after Vinduro event last year. Did me proud and reveled in the slippery conditions.

Careful, wonder how many (ace) Honda pics we can get away with on a Yam forum! Like the wrench storage location on downtube.

Hi guys!

Post as much Honda vintage bike porn as you like over at http://ttr250.activeboard.com/f628255/i-know-its-not-a-ttr-but/  winkwinkwink

Regarding tool storage, I wish I had photos of my mates' enduro bikes with tools strapped or zip tied everywhere - fork legs were a favourite location for tyre levers I recall biggrin
