Street "legal" trail ride

Postby SquirrelCrusher » Sat May 31, 2014 9:52 pm

I picked up a 2001 XR400. I've missed riding a motorcycle and figured this would be fun for getting out and riding forest roads and trails. The previous owner got it licensed with a plate for on the road.

Plan is to get turn signals and a brake light on it and not get lost in the woods.

8) Very cool. I always wanted a XR400, even after the watercooled CRFs came out.
I was planning on selling my CR250 and getting one. Unfortunately, my dirt bike riding days came to a crashing halt before that happened. :cry:

The new rear look.

Much cleaner than the stock fender. Plus I now have a tail/brake light. Someday I might even add turn signals.

Anyone have experience with building or use of a hitch carrier for a dirt bike? I've been looking at them and they seem fairly simple. Plus way easier to use vs pushing the bike up into the bed of my truck. Or if I wanted to take my bike and quad at the same time.

This one is $200. I like the design but would change it a bit if I did it myself. Maybe add a support to each side to hook onto my truck and help stabilize the carrier.

Still cruising the mountains on the XR. These were taking within a day of each other. Table Rock was snowy and cold, Clearwater was sunny and almost T-shirt weather!
