So everyone here has pointed out some 'things' with the XRL... ok
oil cooler = easy to add, affordable.
suspension = easy to upgrade, affordable.
subframe = easy to strengthen, affordable.

overall a winner,,, even if the design is from the 80's.

Remember, most owners mod their bike to their liking. After a while, you'll find some good and bad or things you want to change in any bike.

Besure you're comfortable on the bike before buying, the best made/setup bike will suck if you don't feel right on it.

Xrl/dr

Owned 2 new XRLs, a 99 and an 06. Have ridden friends DR650s. More off road definitly go XRL. More on road DR. Way better boingers front and back on the Honda. The whole bike is nicer to work on than the DR. More attention to detail on the XRL as is usual for Honda. If you want it to run cooler, for $50 you can buy an Acerbis Fast Front Low Fender which allows much more cool air to the head. Worked for me. Best all round though goes to the DR. More comfort, lower and a little more power. Cheaper too. Both great bikes for the price compared to the more updated competition. KTM etc.
