Went for a short ride yesterday (80 miles), near Terlingua Texas. The county dirt roads are a blast. Was wondering If any of you guys ever go down there? I have been out there quite a few times in my Jeep but never on a bike. The Xr650r is everything I hoped it would be. I hit top speed several times in the dirt and felt stable. The faster I went, the smoother the bike was. I also had a little fun in the corners. The bike feels more stable sliding sideways as opposed to trying to ride on the maintainer berms. Let me know If any of you guys come out to the Big Bend area, I will be glade to show you around.
