last weekend, I took my new (old) xr200r out for a 240mile dual sport ride with a good mix of street, fire roads and single tracks and railroad tunnels. it survived without troubles, so I feel confident that I now have an alternative ride, if needed.

picked up and transported all the way from indiana to california in the back of a rental....



up in the mountains



and through the tunnels



the xr200r is a blast to ride, although the stock front end is not very rigid. I'm planning a "fork" swap event soon. the xr350r will receive a xr400r front end, and the xr200r will receive the stiffer xr350 front end (and disc brake). or I might leave everything stock for that "vintage" bike riding experience...
