Honda XL185S

Average User Rating:
  • Sort of bought this one by accident. It was on eBay and up to about $480 in the bidding but it was quite late. So I put $700 on it and went to bed thinking it would go to $900 to $1000. Nope, it didn't so I scored. It is not a bad little bike and I will use it to explore some trails around here and maybe my son will use it for a while when he gets his Learners...We'll see.
    I put new tyres on it, a brake lever a new battery and 12 months rego so it's a good spare when the biggy is in the shop or whatever too.
