  1. hey kids!
    Me and my chum are going to go touring around Australia.
    I remember a chap on netrider saying he toured Oz on a ttr250.
    Who is this chap?

    I have a yamaha ttr250 and my buddy has a yamaha wr250.
    yes, these are uncomfortable, yes, blah blah.

    Every sensible suggestion you can throw at us, advising us not to do this has already been dismissed with complete ignorance!

    I'm very keen to chat with the ttr250 tourer for advice on mods and what the bike's capable of, distance wise, in one ride etc.
    it's a 2002 model.

    Thanks for reading!

  5. Hey Jigme,

    Have you seen the Adventure Motorcycling Handbook? It may provide useful info. They also have a website: www.adventure-motorcycling.com
    It has route outlines for most of the continents of the world, including Australia.

    Do you like the movie 'holy man' too much, or is there another explanation of your name? :grin:
  7. Hey jigme,

    It's from a former career trajectory from which I needed to extricate myself.
