nothing wrong with getting back to your earlier roots i'll admit for some green laneing, and you are more compact than i so even the "monstrous" 175 torque will go to good use.
my DT200 gets to extract a lotta giggles but the air and liquid cooled guises are chalk and brie in comparo. like an lc250 with the main jets divorced and an rz 350 missing a conrod. sold my 175 for 140 in fully shagged form so if you can get her cheap and in good nick then that should be cool.
Over here in Canada my 1985 (when I bought it) 750 Maxim X was saftied (inspected, M.O.T'd) and has been off the road for almost 7 years. I'm hoping to get it back on the road this year, when I do, all I have to do is take the ownership and proof of insurance to a Ministry office and get a new sticker (tag) that's it!
This is what it looked like a couple of weeks ago, and how it looks now.
I picked up a used KLR650 to add to my fleet and replace my old 93 DR650. I got a really good deal from the original owner up in San Francisco. I purchased this for a couple of reasons... First... Me and my son want to do some adventure riding. He's going to pick up a KLR himself and sort it...
just a quick hello my name is Steve and im a bikeaholic.
