Pics came out blurry, but here is my R. It is outfitted for Dumont with a headlight. If I don't need a light, I mount a maier scoop hood. I'm the 3rd owner of this 88 and I have had it since 95 or 96. It had a few minor engine mods when I got it, but mostly stock. Fenders and seat are still the originals. Hoping to get a quad tech seat someday soon.





Here is the top view showing the maier hood and the lobo II front end.

Thanks. It only sees sand and storage so it is easy to keep clean. I've been slacking on the wheels though. The sand just blasts the heck out of them.

man that quad looks sweet. i remember when i got mine it was way clean and polished now the frames cracked in more places than i can count and the plastics look like s**t and first gear and my left side case were left as broken pieces in the last mile of the race track [attachment=184:p2283473.JPG]

yea back when I first got mine I used to spend like 30 mins washing it and rubbing all over it trying to get all the mud and grease off that I could and make it look shiny all over. but now ive gave up on that idea, my R is mainly just a trail/woods bike and its never gonna stay lookin real pretty. so now when I wash mine I just spray it down with a water hose and get most of the mud off and thats it. here is about as clean as it gets right here

Isn't it strange that a gorgeous female makes us want to ride, with the goal of tearing it up, but a gorgeous 250R causes just the opposite emotion? Weird.
