  1. Honda XR650L (2009) Updated

    Just picked this up a couple of weeks ago. I will begin my customization very soon. Looking to build a very aggressive adventure bike that is easy to ride on and off road with the ability to do single track at a moderately quick pace, as well as pack overnight gear to stay a week should I want to do some BDR rides. 
    UPDATE; Well I've put a little over 6k miles on it since the purchase, so about 12k showing now. It's a great bike for my intended use, with not as much single track capabilities as I had hoped, but single track capable at a more relaxed pace. LOL! It's adventure capabilities are excellent with highway speeds of 70 mph plus relatively easy and it's extreme 1st gear stuff just as capable! Excellent investment as far as my needs are concerned!

  2. Suzuki RM250 (2006) Updated

    Just got it a coupe weeks ago, and love it so far. It's not hard to understand why it won the 250 2 stroke shoot out in 06. Just re-jetted and added an IMS fuel tank and Scott's damper. Hope to get a Pro-Moto billet kick stand and Hyde Racing skid plate soon.

    Update: 6/23/2015
    Love this bike even more after 6 months. Looking forward to a JD jetting kit for 6k elevation, just to rid it of some exhaust spooge. The Hyde Racing plastic skid plate is doing an excellent job of protecting the frame and engine cases. It's gouged up pretty good and still working fine.
    Update 9/1/15
    Did a top end rebuild with all OEM parts about 4 engine hours ago. It was definitely due for one. Everything was good, just needed piston and rings, of course top end bearing and wrist pin. The replaced parts were OEM, don't know for sure but I'm thinking they were the original parts. Compression sure helps the bottom end power. lol. Changed from Motul 800 to Motul 710, what a difference in spooge. Same jetting went from plastered rear fender to a few drops here and there. Again more compression gets some credit here also.
    9 months in, I LOVE MY RM!
