This is too weird! I am from Arizona and now live in TN and I own a 1993 XT350 too. I used to have a XR 600 in AZ, but got the XT in TN due to the weight difference. The riding here is terrible. I'm moving back west next year. The funny thing is that I used to work with a dog rescue group here in TN called Grreat Dog Rescue and it is spelled with 2 r's also. You can see their website @ www.grreatdogrescue.com. Anyway, I just wanted to say I love your bike and I have been trying to come up with ideas for my bike, but haven't seen anyone else do anything to theirs until seeing yours. You have given me some good ideas. Glad to see I'm not the only one that thinks the XT 350 is a pretty decent little bike.
I wanted to ask you about painting a gas tank too. I painted mine with a high quality bedliner spray paint that gave it a unique textured look and then used a clear coat on top to keep it looking good, but now the bike looks kind of bland with a black seat and tank. I like your seat cover and I'm trying to come up with some ideas to make it look a little better without going tacky. Any thoughts.
