That's good then, any idea if they put in fresh crank seals ?

Even when it does stop running it would make a great ornament IMO, a talking point for sure

Yeah the crank was done/replaced, it had a hole in it At least I think that's what he said. He's taken the ad off now so I can't be more specific but it's had lots done.

In uk terms that's either an RD350 YPVS F1 or F2. I can't recall the difference but the F1 (and unfaired N1) was only made for a year and was I think the one to have.

According to Wikipedia, it's an F2 according to me, it's the one to have, as it's the one I've always wanted to replace My parents were not happy when I part ex'd my car and my TZR 125 and got some finance for it. Apparently I was mumbling in my sleep last night, I've had a stupid smile all day

Bike commuting season has started in southern Ontario, the washroom is full of men tearing off leathers. It's just like being back at Church and Gerrard.

Current bikes/ATV.

Regularly cover 100+kms off roading on local Crown Land. Day trips and longer (most of BC ridden and western Alberta) on the ZX10R. The Ducati is used for commuting and day trips mostly.

The Ossa trials bike was a local barn find, unused since 1975. I restored it and it now resides on display in a bike museum near Salmon Arm.

I know (or care) nothing about bikes, but nice Polaris ATV. It looks like the proper 2 seat version as opposed to one with an aftermarket seat on the luggage rack? I have the similar Arctic Cat model. (Plus a RZR UTV).

Question though, Do you wear a helmet when ATV'ing then?

Yes, it's the full 2 seat touring version. The rear seat can be removed and a storage box locked into place instead, which makes it pretty versatile for longer days out, carrying extra fuel/clothing/beer.

The pic is of a friend that was using the ATV, I think he popped a helmet on prior to setting off. I don't often bother if I'm just riding forestry trails, but if the route is more extreme then I put one on.

My current off road machine, it's as close to a bike I get here other than taking my neighbors virago out for a spin once in a while

2 stroke Rotax twin motor, smells divine running synthetic oil
