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!
XR650R Plated Supermoto
XR628R Plated and highly modified
CR500R Still rips after all these beers
RZ350L Kenny Roberts Special
BMW R1200GS Adv Kind of a space ship
