Yamaha XT250


The above pic of the bike in its perfect form. No dents, scratches or scrapes. This is as we headed up towards Mt. Bolduc, a crash site near Lake Cowichan. Right before the first drop of many. I’ve learned lots since then, and drops are now fewer and farther between. Drops are always off road, slow speed, and over fairly tricky terrain.

I purchased this bike from Island BMW – I believe the previous owner worked at, and bought it from SG Power here in Victoria. It was a really good deal, as it had the Yamaha Genuine Accessories – bash plate and rear rack, Bark Busters hand guards, and a Givi top case. All for $4,500.
