Well I have been thinking of getting one for my next bike. I was thinking maybe next fall I would get one. I am 6'3 and 250lbs. I currently ride a CRF450 but was thinking of getting something a little easier to work on and with a little more power. A CR500 was in the run, but I am beginning to lean towards the XR because I am a four stroke guy at heart. I ride mainly open fields/fire roads and sand pits, but do the occasional trail ride. Nothing too tight, so the XR shouldnt be a problem. Does it sound like a 650R would be a good bike for me?
