Well OK not new to the forum, but I've a new one! the XR400 previously owned by TP Love it! Having tested it on Friday, it became clear that I had spend £00's fettling my DRZ and Husky to ride like the XR all along (after all, it was the first dirtbike I rode a few years back - see www.adventuretrailrider.com/forum/10-tra...3-on-any-sonday#6013 )





I've a list of things I want to do to it to make it my own, so I'll begin a thread soon as I did with my last two



This move sees TP once again aboard a DRZ400 - Look after her!

Well congratulations Ben, didn't see TP parting with that XR anytime soon - I guess it was the lure of the magic button on the DRZ? Anyway I'm sure that with them both being 'on the fleet' as it were you will both be able to chop and change if you fancy it.

Whats on the horizon for the Husky though?
If you only have one plug, it needs to be a good plug!
July 14 - still true, but now have two plugs!

It was the ease of starting that was the key thing on the DRZ. and I love the XR, so it makes sense, certainly easier for Dad, so he can keep on biking with us

The Husky, when I get time, fluids in and list it properly for sale I think. So far, I've been offered R6's GSXRs etc as swaps, but the funds from the Husky will be diverted to 4 wheels.

XR400 power, you know it makes sense Ben!

I know of a nice NX400 going cheap*, you can get the motor out and have an electric foot in yours...

I didn't want to part with it, but in my condition it proved to be bothersome.
I'll not be riding the XR again, as IMHO it's nicer than the DRZ, and I know that if I rode her I'd miss her, so best not.

I do like the XR. 230km covered yesterday on it. It is very good at going quickly and left more modern bikes behind in places. Fantastic!

I've a few mods lined up over winter. I'll begin a thread as I did with previous bikes

I did miss the magic button at times! Especially later in the day when I was absolutely shattered!!!

Glad you enjoyed it (the bike and the ride).

Talking of which where's the RR with pictures?

I didn't get any pics. We didn't really stop much! I'll put together a short RR though

I'm currently making some subtle changes to the DRZ, just to make it my own as it were.
I've only ridden it once, and that was up the road to the next village and back, so looking forward to getting her out on the trails for a proper shakedown and assessment sometime soon.

It is looking well XR was treated to a 13t front sprocket today, which has livened things up, and should give a bit more low down 'oomph' for the deep claggy winter mud
