#japstyle - "Rusty" - Here

Lulu the seller of Rusty rode all the way up here from Sydney to drop the bike off. Huge big thanks to her for this.

Already started to change things. Went for a ride first. Changed mirrors, moved the seat back and fitted smaller tail light.


Small changes happen.

#japstyle - "Rusty" - New to the WnRn stable

So "Bender" goes bye bye tomorrow night and on Saturday" Rusty" the Yamaha Scorpio 225 arrives thanks to Lulu Lopez from Sydney Cafe Racers group.

 As much as I want the DR500 on the road ASAP I need a bike to get to and from work on so a down size to this is perfect.

Look a bike that needs very little done to it by me. Can i stand the shock? Time will tell.

DR500 - Speeding

Went to the local wreckers. Said a mate said they had wrecked an RG250. Owners says yeah 25 years ago. Ask if he had a speedo from it. He says he has two. Gets a drill with a bit of speedo cable in it. Both speedos work. I buy one.

The RG speedo matches the RG front wheel fitted to the DR500. Speed will be show correctly.

"Pizza Cutter" - Cutting up the tar

It starts.
It goes.
1 up and 3 down on a gear shift that is on the right side makes my brain hurt.
Rode it for about 2 kms today.
Saw 35 miles per hour on the speedo.
It cuts out in top gear. Back into the shed.
So stoked that it is rid-able.
I did not take my camera or phone to record this event. D!OH.
Here is a photo of it from the other day.
