I'm considering getting another Honda XR. (I had the Paris to Dakar XL600 in 85) I want to know if any of ya'll have put a ton of miles on them? When do the motors usually need a rebuild? I weigh 300 pounds and want to ride it on and off road. To Baja from Georgia and up and down and back...many times.
I had a BMW GS ADV and want more dirt, but can the little Honda handle the mega road miles on the way home? Will it overheat on long days of back roads? I know they are bullet proof desert bikes, but I'm hoping one of you has put some serious miles on one. (like 50K in a year) ???
Thanks in advance,
