History does repeat itself.

A long, long time ago, like over 15 years ago, I was a member. Had a KDX200 but then got power hungry and moved to a YZ250.

Then the kids group up, at least the oldest son grew up, found girls, and I was left with 3 daughters who only wanted to ride horses. I still rode with my dad for a while until he crashed hard, and broke his shoulder and decided he was too old, and healing took too long. Sold all the bikes (YZ250/PW80/PW50) but for some reason kept the XR100R. I moved over to street bikes, sport-toured the country did a number of endurance rallies, etc.

Then the youngest son turned 10, and discovered the XR in the barn (oldest is 27 now). So... We got that running (today as a mater of fact), and I grabbed a well worn KDX200 of craigslist and here I am.

A lot older, a lot fatter too. Gonna need a heavier shock spring, and fork springs :D

But so far so good :D

Welcome back!

When I saw the website at the bottom, I thought I remembered that site. I went looking and found a page with a broken link. Any chance you might still have the pages I looked at so long ago?

Thanks.
Thank you, Julien D for all your hard work!

Jason, I'll have to take a look, it probably exists in a backup somewhere. When I moved web hosts years ago, I trimmed the fat and a lot of older peripheral data.

[s]I'll take a look later today.[/s] Actually, I found it :) I need to vet some of the info, clean it up but I'll put the files back where they were.

Wow, some really old really legacy shit right here: https://www.dishers.com/hobbies/ 15+ year old stuff.

But if there were links to pages or photos, they should all work again :)

Now who has some heavy-duty fat-guy fork springs and shock spring that they don't need and want to donate to a worthy cause? :D
