Can't get the slideshow to play on this slow wifi, but I'll take the '90. You're giving them away, yeah?

Seriously, nice bikes all...I do really dig the old school colors on the 90. Kind of like the elusive KLR barbie.

You've got plenty to be proud of there. I hope this is the beginning of a lot more.

My Bikes... A little history

A little background:
02 Wing: Sold my 86 Suzuki Cavalcade in 2003 after getting the 2002 Wing (New Leftover)
Cavalcade had just under 95,000 miles on it and still running great.

Got the 1990 NX 250 in May 93 used with about 3500 miles on it. Now has 18,500 mi. Here in N.H. I've not seen or heard of another white/green one in all that time.

Just picked up the 1989 blue one last fall with 7500 mi's Had some minor plastic dings, but they cleaned up good. I'm just beginning to get it setup the way I like.
Someone put a rear Duro 130/90s-16 on it.
I'm getting around 80 - 85 mpg with the 1990 with stock Bridgestone's TW39 & TW40's.
The 89, with the Duro on rear, is getting a little less mpg.
Not sure if the tire is reason for difference or something else.

I love my Wing, but I like the NX better. More fun poking around our abandoned roads.

I've modified my 1990 for exploring. See... http://powers31.info/NX250_Instrumentation.htm
