Can't come close to that scenery so here is my hog in front of the barn. Brought it out to see the light of day and get a breath of fresh air. Hope this last snow storm was THE LAST SNOW STORM! I'm getting an itchy throttle hand. :eek:

Mine's an 07, with 4K on it. Clark tank, Acerbis rear light, Pro Taper CR highs, FMF Q2, Dave's Mods, cleaned out air box with a K/N. Strictly street. Might go 17's by the end of summer. That is if I can convince the "Better Half" that I really, really, REALLY have to have them. :thumbsup: Later, OGB

Thanks, I have owned it since it was new and I did a ground up restoration twice. The white paint is a perl white and the blue is a darker matalic than original. The stainless pipe was off of my XR600 but with a little modification it fit. Here is another photo of me riding the Dragon, I only ride it on the street now, but when I first got it I put alot of hard trail miles on it.

Here is my main ride now. 02 XR650R I put the stock pipe back on after I had it ceramic coated (didnt like the Big Gun) and when I first got it I put the forks & wheel from a CRF450 and made it street legal. Now I am thinking of puting the stock carb back on.

Welcome to TT! :eek:

Where did you get the ceramic coating done and how much would something like that cost. If you don't mind me asking. Looks nice. :thumbsup:

Where was that first pic taken?

I had the pipe done at Jet-Hot and it was a lot of money and had more orange peel that it should have. If I hade a bigger oven I would have done it myself. the first picture was taken at an over look on the blueride parkway in NC. I had climed that looking glass rock many times as a kid.

Heres a few pics of my morning ride. There are some fun rock chutes and climbs in this loop and its great that I can ride out my door and loop totally around the backside of Vegas and rarely see another person. The last pic is of my Pickup and my bike. I know it needs a paint job but you cant beat a good ole Ford truck:thumbsup: 100_2292.jpg100_2294.jpg100_2296.jpg100_2290.jpg100_2305.jpg

      I have quite a few things I need to thin out of my shop. Prices are for items only. Shipping extra. Please Pay attention to my shipping policy:

      I ship twice per month. When you inquire about an item, I will tell you when the next ship date is. It takes a couple of hours out of my day to get things to the shipping outlet so I will ship as many items as possible at once. If you don't like this, don't buy my items or be willing to pay extra for special accommodations. I will be as reasonable as possible.

      I will combine/box multiple items to save you as much as possible on shipping. Prices are OBO, but I am not going to take the time to box something up for nearly nothing. I have a very demanding work load this fall.

      It will take me a few days to have pictures up on all this stuff.

      so today I was going to go out for a ride, almost got to my buddies house, when the bike died, thought it was maybe out of gas, so i pulled in the clutch and went on reserve. I was still rolling so i popped it up into 3rd to try to roll start it, but no luck. stopped and pulled of to the side to try and kick it. the engine was siezed. this had happened before once and it ran fine after i let it cool down. so i let it sit and got a cup of coffee. i came back out to start her up, but i couldnt find tdc. the kick start would turn and turn but no hard point. it was harder to kick through the cycles and it has a weird squeek sound from the cylinder. any ideas on what happened or what the problem is??? it was running just fine 2 weeks ago i took it out on a 6 hr ride no overheating nothing. i has just been out of service because i cracked the tank in a biff about 3 rides ago.

      Hi all, long time stalker first time poster.
      Had my xr600r a few years now brought it with everything done lucky. 
      Anyway it has sat in the shed for 3 or so years regoed and ready to 
      Roll just to lazy to get my Lience. Now have it and I'm riding it to work 
      Everyday saving ks on the car doing about 200 250 km a week, 
      Loving the bike hasn't missed a beat but doing 80% of that 
      Highway I want to set up for 100% road. 
      I have picked up a set of cbr600 rims done some maching on them
      Got them to start fitting and taking shape but gave up on the idea
      Now I have my Lience it's back on. 
       
      Has anyone on here done it? how much work is realy involved? Is the
      Juice worth the squeeze?? Ect ect. Send in your pics cbr rims or not
      show me your rigs!!  I will have plenty more questions to ask you all that have
       Cheers.
