I got my current '95 XR600R (I've owned several) a few years back and I'm still nuts about it. It's like the Swiss Army knife of motorcycles, it'll do a little bit of everything and never leave you stranded. I've taken mine all over the Sierras, to Moab, and the deer trails in the Santa Cruz mountains. I really like how easily the bike lends itself to being modified and I've been sculping this one for a while. Here's a list of some of the mods:

Baja Designs DSK
Baja D. 250 watt stator
Two 55w halogen off road lights mounted on a custom light bar
Scott's damper w/h billet top clamp for oversized bars
Excell rims (black)
IMS 4 gallon tank
IMS ss pegs
Trail Tech endurance speedo
Custom bash plate
FMF Power Bomb header
FMF Ti4 titanium muffler
JE 100mm (630cc) 10.5:1 piston
Mega-Cycles full race cam
Mega-Cycles hard faced rockers
Kibblewhite Black Diamond valves
Kibblewhite double racing valve springs w/h titanium retainers
FCR41 Carb
The head has been ported, polished, and port matched

I did all the work myself but I still may have won the contest for the most money spent on a XR600. It goes like a raped ape! On dry pavement while sitting way up on the tank rolling on the throttle will cause the front tire to rise 2 feet in the air and stay there until you let off. It's fun!
