I see myself doing exactly what your DAD is doing; riding with my son(s). I plan on trailering our bikes to New Mexico, Colorado, Utah and Big Bend in Texas. Where we can ride and explore to our heart's content.

Those photos are exactly what I want to do on an XR650L. I don't have one yet, but that's what I plan to buy. I want to ride gravel/dirt roads, mountain passes, Jeep trails, etc. And, I plan to trailer it because there are long distances to cover to get to the mountains in Colorado and New Mexico.

The XRL gets a bad rap because the XRR is so much better in performance; but some people won't ride like a "bat out of hell". Some, like myself, plan to ride a little less aggressive than others. Just out exploring and enjoying. The XRL should easily get me there and back. That is such beautiful scenery in your photos.
