i know its the age old question but, i'm looking for a bike that i can use for work (not that far 10 miles at the most), and take my girlfriend on some jeep trails with? i like the KTM but the honda is so much cheaper and i know the XR is a reliable old beast. is the only difference bettween the L and the R cosmetic? is it the same engine, frame and suspension? dose the R have an E-start? i never normally go with the road version because they can be a bit lame, but the L has rear foot pegs where as the R i would have to fabricate something.
