I forgot about this exact model and came to the conclusion that looks wise it's killer and I like it more (a lot more) then the 650 of today. I think the shape of the gas tank is so cool and the bike just has a compact look about it. It looks fairly light too. Anyone know the weight of it? How long did they produce this one? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Honda-XR500R-XR-500-R-84-exc-original-condition-not-CR_W0QQitemZ300020773885QQihZ020QQcategoryZ50012QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem#ebayphotohosting That is one sweet ride!
