I've made my decision!

Recommended Posts

After much debate, I've finally figured out the bike I'm gonna get. I'm going to get the used 2005 KX250 that I have mentioned before here.

Long story short, it's a friends bike who bought it off of another friend of mine, been crashed a couple times, but all together only has about 10 rides on it. And I know this for a fact because I was there for half of them and heard about the others.

I was actually on my way home from work and was going to swing by the local Kawi shop to tell them to get me a new one when I called my friend just to see if he really wanted to get rid of the bike for cheap. Well he did, and now I'm getting a slightly used '05 KX250 for $1000 less than what I can get a new one for. :p

I went over his house tonight and checked it out and the only thing wrong with it is the plastic is a little beat up, and I'm gonna replace that anyways (gonna try to go white again). It already has a Regina gold chain on it and Pro Taper bars, so I'm saving on those expenses from the get-go.

By the end of this month (he has to come up with some $$$ to pay off his loan on the bike so I can get the title) I should have a "new" bike! :):):D

Already have a list of things I'm gonna put on it:

-Wider footpegs (damn size 13 feet!)

-pipe and silencer

-bars (Renthal Twinwall Windam bend more than likely)

-possibly getting some custom graphics made for me and my brother who just got an '05 KXF250

-plastic (hopefully white if they make it)

excellent Matt, can't wait to see you at buffalo riping up the track. A white KX should be cool :):p:) . Wedron is open on the weekends if you want to give it a go. I've been riding there when its in the 30's not too bad. Beats sitting at home look-in at your bike.

Why doesn't XRiowa buy the $9000 xr400 from Kevxr416. It is the most beautiful xr I have ever seen and it's gold plated to boot. :)
