Recently picked up this 1983 XL250R survivor and I'm having fun with it.

My first motorcycle.

What got me started in this whole thing. Since sold the bike, but it was the perfect bike to start with.
My first street-legal bike was a Yamaha XT350. I had so much fun back in my late teens and early 20s on that bike. It took me everywhere.
Fast forward 35 years and I have had a handful of KTMs (still have a few 525s) and even a 2021 Beta 500RR-S. Sometimes those bikes are just too much for exploring and trail-mapping.
These old XLs are great bikes to get back to when you want to slow things down and check out the scenery. :evil

Friend stated: I just rebuilt the motor but I can’t seem to get it going. I’m at a loss. Can you see what’s wrong?

I replied: Let me take a look at it.

After inspection: Houston we may have PROBLEMS! The engines on the titanic are closer to operational. The engine is thrashed and the rest of the bike is no better.
