Keepth thine bike for all time for there will never again be a bike as thou have now. Really! though, it is a great bike IF used for it's intended purpose. MILD trail riding, loggin road etc. My lil XR250R will kick my 650L's butt off raod - just due to nimbleness and useable power. Having an XR650L is like owning an old Willy's Jeep, dated in design etc, but a blast off road and it goes on the highway too! I don't think there is a better all aruond bike thgan the 650L. It does kind of remind me of my old willys jeep.
