    Thought I'd drop a few pics as I make my way around Wales (UK) this year.

    1. Odometer @ 100 miles - Aberavon Beach

    Vroom vroom has and bashed the thing to hell and back
    I've got his new plastics n decals waiting for him to collect
    He's got MX wheels on his but too cheap it seemed
    This would build into an ok dual sport if you spend a load of time n money on it but will take a long time to get the niggle bits right for a decent dual sport legal in china

    Qingqi makes a respectable product, that is a nice bike Mark.

    check in and offer updates as you go.

    I am not sure if Sinnis intends on continuing with the 250, they offer an EFI version of the 125 that has some revised parts.

    I've removed the rear pillion pegs/holders, the tool compartment, the mirrors and grab rails so far.
    I have a small tail tidy and small number plate on order.
    The Pirelli Angel CTS tyres replaced the standard factory rubber.

    I like the look of the 125 - nice plastics, but the 250 will be easier on the motorway each day on my commute to work

    Odometer @ 150 miles.

    Coffee break on The Bwlch mountain pass, looking down on a misty Cwm Parc, Rhondda Valley. Old coal mining area.
    The little 250 easily handled the uphill bends on the new Pirelli Angel tyres.

    Dropping down the valley, into the village of Nant-Y-Moel:
    The brakes were great in the damp conditions. No real speed due to the unpredictable sheep that cling to the mountains up here. This is biking country

    Odo @ 300 miles - Swansea Marina SA1

    No complaints to-date, just a squeaky wheel, blasted with WD40 spray

    Odo @ 350 miles - a thatched cottage at Merthyr Mawr village

    Wheels don't squeak and watch you don't put ANY oil on brake disc or parts
    350 miles wasn't a bad effect in an afternoon mate
    Do weekend n hit 1000 or more then all run in

    WD40 really? if it's to fix a squeak it'll be back in a day, proper grease on all the bearings will resolve the problem and protect them.
