Sold one, bought one...

Sold the 1975 KT250 Trials bike. Just can't do the kick start anymore even though it fires on the second kick.

So I had a hole in my stable and bought this little funky toy.

It is a 2017 Suzuki Van Van 200. Air Cooled, Fuel injection, fat tires, and an equally fat seat!

Only had a little over 1000 miles on it.

I will add riser so I can stand and do some slow riding at my friends trials course but will stay on the low technical areas. I think it will be a great bike to take on camping trips for light exploring and such.

Here are a couple pics with it on the lift getting inspected, cleaned and adjusted.

I saw one of those on Craigslist. They guy wanted $1500 and it is just kick start so not good for me. Cool Bike though.

I got a great price on a new Monkey bike but all of my buds said I wouldn't like it on the gravel roads we have here. The larger diameter wheels and fat tires are awesome on the gravel.

lol its so easy to kick start you can do it with your hand. or even bump start it at small slow scoot . this one was my husbands when he was a kid. its spent most of its life on gravel road and done fine ( even on its 45 year old tires )

Not when you have nerve damage in your leg.
