took piggy out for the first ride of the year...beautiful day mid-sixties :p

it's been a long time since i last posted full pics...since then i did the battery relocation, FMF header, re-sprung w/forkskins, bar risers, R skidplate, a new white Clarke 4.0 tank to replace the yellowed one and a gold chain...yes i'm a poser :eek:

there's also an R carb hide'n up there :busted:

...and yes i have a new front tire on the way but i find "dualsport tires" a challange :mad:

Kenzo, can you provide a link to where you bought your fork skins from? My XRL came with a fork brace installed and as such the old fork boots were removed. In place of the older boots, I have fork protectors which look like two long plastic pieces in front of each fork tube to deflect rocks and such, but I'd rather go with the skins.

I took my piggy out for the first ride of the year as well today. Mid 20's! Bburrrr. Even with my new Oxford Hot Hands grip heaters, my hands were frozen. I need to figure out a solution to warm hands.


those r the Moose branded long Forkskins for large displacement bikes, may say for USD forks but they work fine with zip ties on the bottom, purchased from TT Store...time will tell how they hold up but they're cheap like me :smirk:

What a sweet looking bike!


thanks...if i mess up the rear fender i will replace it with a new white one...i think that wud really finnish the "look"... :thinking:

one more shot..

I can only assume that he filled his front tire with helium with all the wheelies he did, but a little slow speed turn is what wiped him out!!!:thinking:


You dont even imagine the hooligan this guy is...Im a baby compared to him..
But for the first time i saw him crash, we recorded it :smirk: banged is head all the afternoon :smirk:

I didn't know that the NX existed in the US market. For my longer trip, I let the XRs stay at home, and take the ´91 NX. Last year it did Copenhagen-Paris-Barcelona-Tarifa-Tangier-Casablanca-Marrakesh-and return witn no problems apart from a sore a** and a single puncture.

It's very stripped down, lightweight battery and free-flow Alu exhaust. Mikuni TM 40, oversize KN-filter, but stock engine. Goes like stink :-)

The Dommie didn't sell well here. It was only available in '88 and '89, but you can still find them around. It really becomes a much nicer bike when you start stipping all the extra crap off of it. It's also fun to work on and it seems to be interchangable with a lot of other Honda bike parts of that era. Mine has XR650L front forks and a CBR600 Hurricaine rear wheel and disk brakes (our NX had stock drums in the rear). I just put on a fully adjustable rear shock from a '95 XR250R (with the NX spring), but the remote reservoir interferes with the airbox so I'll have to modify it. Sorry about the dirty bike. I'm bad with cleaning.
