I have thought seriously about the xr650r, but finding a newer model streel legal sems to be difficult. most seem to be early 2000 models and who knows how beat they are. I would buy one if it was avaiilable newer, know of any, if not there seem to be a low of ktm 525 exc's and 625 sxc's and 625 smc's available all street legal. with the ktm, which would be better for short street rides, hour or less. to get to decent riding from where i live, i would be better off throwing it in the truck and unloading someplace. sad fact of pinellas county, all built up.
