Well I throw a pic up just so I can complement you on your bike. My dad had a silver one just like it when I was a wee lad. Very nice ride indeed!:thumbsup:

Thanks for the good words on the XL. :thumbsup:

I got the idea for this from the 400 forum. Its nice to see pics of the XR's instead of conversation.

Plus its a great way to get more cool pics outta you bums!:p:cry:

This belongs to a "Fat Bastard"...

These pics are almost a year old, from my trip to Bonneville Salt flats in 07. My bike is still scared from the salt.

I tried riding out to the "Island" but the salt was just to wet last year.

Broke my foot in April, so yesterday was the first day I had ridden it this year. :thumbsup:

Just bought it a month ago. 1995 XR650L with 4000 miles. Pristine condition with no damage other than a few scratches on the left handguard and tank shroud. Came with White Bro's exhust for $2300 locally in the Pittsbugh area. Didn't need a thing to pass inspection. The only thing I don't like is the purple on the side covers and the headlight shroud. The purple sticker peeled right off the headlight shroud, but the side covers look painted. Gonna try some Krylon paint before I buy white ones. What the hell was Honda thinking with that purple?

Well I put quite a few mods on since I posted here so I thought I'd post a new pic or 2.

It's an 07 XRL I bought new in Sep. 07.

      I have a 2000 xr650l and I bought it with a tm40 carb on it and the jetting is way off anybody trying to help? I am less then 1000ft above sea level if that helps any. Thanks in advance!

      My pig's about ten years old and has 12,000 miles on the clock. To my knowledge the shock's never been gone through. I assume it's due for some new oil and nitrogen by now? How much of a difference will I notice if I get it revalved while I'm at it? If I do get it revalved, should I try to do it myself, have a local shop do it, or send it to someone?
