Craig - Good luck scoring a bike. Might want to reach out to George (Az4x4) as he's located some sweet bikes. Gifted that way. smile

Thought of him, I'll wait and see if he responds.

All well on this end. Busy with projects and some work items. Leaves are just starting to turn in town. Much further along in the mountains now. The aspen are generating pretty colors. I'd say they'll peak in the next week.

Glad you're getting out, about and enjoying yourself. Good thing to do when yesterdays greatly exceed tomorrows. Be well and be safe.

Craig, it's not easy finding an excellent XT225 for sale, especially if you want it to be a local purchase, something you can drive to and take home with you if it measures up. You might stumble into one given enough time, or you might not. Be prepared to travel some distance if what looks to be the right bike shows up.

The last XT I bought I drove to New Mexico to pick up. And some years ago I bought a good looking XT225 off of Craigslist back on the east coast and had it picked up and transported to Arizona, which added a few hundred dollars to the purchase price. That bike turned out to be as nice as I was told it was, so that deal worked OK. But buying sight unseen is a crap shoot no matter how you look at it, so be prepared to do what you have to do if you're lucky and find what you're looking for some distance away.

I just stumbled into a cherry '08 Honda CRF230L while looking for an XT225 on our local Craigslist, and felt fortunate to find that bike. Haven't seen an XT225 of any sort listed for sale in this area in a long time now. Hopefully you'll find the Yamaha you want and you won't have to look any further. But if one doesn't show up the Honda CRF230L, the Kawasaki Super Sherpa, and the Yamaha XT225 are much the same in design and function, and as light weight dual-sport bikes any of these that show up for sale are worth looking closely at.

Good luck with your search. I wish you the best..

Wow the 230L you never see, I'm not in any rush just put this out there. I'm very seldom on this site. I have no problem driving for the right one. Thanks for you input. Here's my email if you find something I'd appreciate a message.
