    Hi all, you’ll all be jealous to hear that I’ve picked up the bike that all hard-core adventure riders want. A little WR250R.

    It is very standard but I do want to set it for adventure riding as well as trail bashing. So I’m looking for all those choice bits that will take it from merely awesome to a fire-breathing, KTM eating, rock pounding monster:

    – bigger tank
    – alloy bash pad
    – racks for gear
    – better seat?

    So, if you’ve got anything that may help lying around the shed please let me know 🙂

    Ok, so this hasn’t worked so far. I might settle for some recommendations from other WR pilots…

    I’m not a WR owner, but as far as racks for gear goes, I really like the OS system by Kriega. With the OS Base it’s a versatile, add/subtract/rearrange to suit the situation and can do away with the weight of racks/pannier systems. I still have run a rack underneath to stiffen subframe for extra luggage and double as a sturdy place to pull on when the bike gets stuck, but not necessary with this system just add some some rack loops to the tail for more space.

    Nice bike BTW, if you feel like a challenge we should enter them into the NI1600 one year 😀

    Thanks for the reply Daniel.

    I actually wondered about doing the TT2000 on it…but then I remembered the S10 in the shed…

    So, gradually adding little bits and pieces to Mighty Mouse. My old 550 so I can get lost more effectively:

    A new, more sturdy bash-plate:

    Just got some cheap bags (brand new for $99 delivered). Still to make up a rack for them:

    And if anyone wants the standard bash bad & plastic “wings”, let me know….

    Next up is a major expense – more fuel capacity…

    Still haven’t got the tank yet, but I have made some progress:

    Tail tidy
