I am looking for a nice dual sport that will be a worthy companion on road as well as off. The XR650L has caught my attention for it's bullet proof design. The other option would be to get a XR400 and dual sport it but I kind of have my heart set on the magic button. The first thing I would get rid off is the stock black pipe and muffler and replace it with a nice stainless or aluminum set up. This would greatly improve the look of the XR650L. When it comes to factory dual sports there is just not much to choose from these day. When I was a young boy I had a paper route and one of my customers was the local Yamaha dealer. I remember getting the brochures and just looking at them for hours. It was all a mute point since my parents would never allow me to have a trail bike anyways. In the early 70s every enduro bike came street legal. It's a real shame that our choices have become so limited today unlike Europe which still have many more options then we do.
