I sold the Yamaha XT on May 5th, 2012. I'm glad it went to who it did, she is very excited to be getting into D/S riding. It was a great bike, but with the KLR, I've realized that I had seriously outgrown the 250. I may, or may not, get a 400cc class bike to supplement the KLR at some point in the future.
I bought my 2009 Yamaha XT250 from MidSouth Motoplex in Clarksville on August 14th of 2010. Kurt was my salesman, a very likeable guy who made the entire process very easy. Ed is the Owner of the shop, a nice large shop with many brands of both used and new bikes, and I worked with him on several things as well. Very cool guys, took good care of me.
I picked up the bike and started compiling a list of things that I wanted to do to it. Here is the modifications list, followed by a brief planned modifications list.
