The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive.

Keep it. The value won’t drop, doesn’t cost much to run or take up garage/shed space.
As I’ve severely regretted selling my last 2 bikes, I don’t want anyone else to feel the same loss that I did.

Keep it and plan on doing a few more miles on it this year.

Just seen the photo now I'm on a different machine. Is that the Baja bug I can see in the background?

How can you only do 600 miles a year on it!!!! Even my barely used pushies manage more than that... Some people with boring cars fill their fuel tanks at greater mileage intervals.

Up your game wavey!  ;)

Guess you have to ask how much you enjoyed those 600 miles and how much value is in the bike.

It's always tricky with bikes you barely use but really like and if they are low value and don't owe you anything, it's not really gaining much by selling them.

Dr Djebel has another 12 months ticket today. So should it stay or should it go? I only do 600 miles a year on it.

Lots of small stuff has been happening to the XTZ. Mostly wiring, making brackets, and taking things off and putting them back on again. Generally it's been a lot of work for stuff that probably won't be noticed.  :-X

Here's a new braided front hose wrapped in shrink tubing and fitted MX style with some bespoke bracketry. I've also fitted the leccy speedo drive in with the brake hose.



Speedo drive fitted into caliper adapter.

Interesting - not seen dust seals with the guards made as one. The ones on my XTZ are from a Triumph (I think) and fix around the top of the lower but are the same appearance.

If you're off the edge of the tyre you might want to fit a taller profile next time around?
