The NW200 (North West) in Portrush Northern Ireland is about 2 weeks before the TT, usually used as a warm up/practice race. We used to head up for the weekend of partying and camping.Is another good circuit. I’m drawn to the Irish seen by how raw it is. The Isle of Man TT is on the bucket list. That is my favourite event of the year
Nice, XRs are great. My mate has a few (various sizes) and they are a lot of fun to borrow.I did a nice 300km day trip on the little XR yesterday. Out through Warburton, Reefton spur, Big River, Corn Hill, Mt Terrible and out on the Jamison-Eildon Rd and Black Spur.
What year is that @CHEWYI did a nice 300km day trip on the little XR yesterday. Out through Warburton, Reefton spur, Big River, Corn Hill, Mt Terrible and out on the Jamison-Eildon Rd and Black Spur.
Everywhere I stop on this thing someone comes over and tells me about the old XR they have/had. Love it.

But I can’t imagine Reefton and Black Spurs on those tyres.
I lived in Warburton for five years and rode Reefton endlessly.
You should take the XR out to A1 mine.
The road that goes from A1 to Kevington along the Goulburn River has some beautiful spots, and would be heaps of fun on an XR.A1 mine looks cool, I will definitely check that out.
When nephew was a sponsored mx rider he and another would take factory stock xrs and wrs out on the enduro tracks as prerun inspectors / checkers. They were faster on these doing a reccy than most on dedicated enduros.The road that goes from A1 to Kevington along the Goulburn River has some beautiful spots, and would be heaps of fun on an XR.
There are designated campgrounds these daze, but back in the day, we'd just pick a spot that we liked and were reasonably sure we could get out of and camp there. Ace.
Must be some vibrator if it uses a motorcycle battery.Fitted up the 65 deg Quick Turn Throttle to the KTM -
Also fitted a Motocell Lithium battery as well - Would probably bought the Noco battery if I had realised it existed before I bought the Motocell - Found it when researching a video.
I've been to the TT races once. Absolutely THE BEST week any motorcycle fan will have. Went with a bunch of mates on our sports bikes (ZXR750 for me) and had the greatest of times. Never will you feel the high of an adrenalin rush like it, whilst at the same time being totally scared to death (not literally hopefully). Totally bonkers ALL the time you're there. To give you an idea if you've not been there, it's like this for everyone who goes for the first time. Brilliant.
