After a few years on the xr650r I ended up with a 08 wr450f at work. It was ok for a minute, but I found the xrr way more comfy (fun) to ride despite the 60-70lbs extra weight.
Then I got the wr suspension worked buy Fineline and it is a new machine; it feels like it should have from the get go; 60-70lbs lighter.
Then I got the wife a crf250 and I almost kept it for myself because it is so fun to ride in the tight stuff. It goes anywhere easily.
A guy really needs more than one bike.
