To enter the raffle, do this:
- 1. Figure out if you are a current member by checking this list: http://www.r1150r.org/temp/renewals.html and make a note of your member # if you are on this list.
2. Figure out how many entries you want and what it will cost based on your membership status (see above). Note that once you are a member, you can purchase entries at the member level, so, for example, if you donated $85 and you were not previously a member, you'd get 6 entries.
3. Send the paypal donation to either: [email protected] if you are using a credit card during the paypal transaction, or use [email protected] if you are using a paypal balance or direct withdrawl from a checking account. The latter avoids an annoying 4% Paypal fee. If what I just wrote is confusing, just use [email protected] and that will work for all types of transactions BE SURE TO INCLUDE your MEMBER # (if you have one or know what it is (TIP: search for your Member welcome email) and USERNAME in your PAYPAL notes section.
4. Wait until the drawing is held, date TBD. Our best estimation at this time is July 4th. The winner will be contacted via email and it will be announced here in this thread.
I will compiling a list of donaters weekly and displaying them AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST! I will not be sending out confirmation emails, so please check the list and if you dont see your information on it, let me know.

XT225 Summary --- 2003 w/ 506 miles
Low Weight (dry 236 lbs), Low Power (17 hp), Low Seat (32"), Low maintenance.
High ground clearance (11"), high off-road bias (21" front/18" rear knobbies), High mileage performance (60-80 mpg).
1 season (when new) as a farm vehicle; 2 seasons (since winter 2006) as a dirt bike. Little highway mileage. Air filter, battery, oil, plug new in 2006. Service kit of air and oil filters, fluids, new plug will be delivered with bike or performed before delivery. Tires in good shape. Brakes in good condition. Chain cleaned, adjusted, and lubricated. Battery freshly charged.
This is an old design: CV carb, choke assist, petcock equipped model engine with electric start and provisions for a kick start kit. Hard starting when cold, warms up nicely. Adjustable idle screw readily accessible, re-jetting kits and on-line knowledge base easily obtained. Used as a trainer for my kids, each of whom has expressed a strong desire to never ride a 2 wheeler again! Best suited for young, short legged, and starting dirt bikers but can perform for older, wiser, heavier folks. Inexpensive to operate and insure.
