Can someone tell me what the difference is between XT and TT Yamaha's?

I think the differences would vary depending on if you are talking about the 250, 350, 500 or 600 versions.

Some useless info about this event: Approx 30% of riders were on a Honda XR, 15% on a Yamaha IT, and 10% on Suzuki PE.  8)

In USA there is a group of guys who every year? do a big ride on old DT360's and similar Yamahas all fitted out with bigger tanks and touring accessories. You can read all about it on ADV rider forum

There's an annual dual sport event in the USA that started in 2015 called the Vintage 1000 for pre 1981(?) bikes that looks like fun. Some of the bikes are road bikes with dual sport tyres, and emphasis seems to be on having fun as much as covering the 1000 miles.

Getting a few mates together and doing something similar in Australia does sound cool.

Ugly but effective method is to cut some flexible sheet metal and pop rivet or screw it to the plastic guard on the underside. I'd also drill a small hole at the end of the split too.

I'd rather do this than remove guards completely.

That's great, now I can stop procrastinating

What's even greater is now I can tell everyone I was "gunna" do it but missed the boat!  ;D

Seriously though, it's great to see the vintage class take off like this.

so there is no loop on the property anymore?

Yes, but it won't be a separate item, it will be part of the entire course.

Is that the Sunday before Cup Day?

The Sunday of a long weekend?

In a word, no.

I had a pair on my DT125, and was happy enough with them. I would use them again for casual vinduro and trail riding use.
