Ulyses swiped his brother ACY's (frequent poster on this thread) XRL, and has been on the epic journey of a lifetime from Oregon to Chile--his RR has been very entertaining, and I know that many of you have been following this. Ulyses and his riding buddy were on there way to see El Salvador KLR today, when one of them got mashed by a truck.

Prayers required.

PD
I wouldn't call myself a frequent poster, at least not now. But yeah all the help Justin (my brothers) friend can get would be great.

Thanks Drake and everyone else who has spread the word/sent money/going to see Justin/offered to store bikes and gear. This community is a really great one!

First off I would like to thank 3girlsdad for the tip on the Easton EXP handlebars.

These are the freestyle bend, which is real close to the Pro Taper cr highs and 1.5" risers (less pull back) that they replaced.

You can click the link in my signature, or go to my blog at: http://brycebissinger.blogspot.mx/ and click on the button labled: "Justin´s Recovery Fund".

Thanks to everyone in advance for their prayers and support!

So sorry to hear about the accident. Hope everything goes well.

On another note, I got my tire, chain, and front sprocket put on as well as working in the grip heaters.

Just look at all the touring mods being done by your fellow inmates right HERE!
That being said, don't forget that many off road riding areas are being closed. So why does a manufacture need so many off road capable bikes in thier line up anyway and look at the stellar success bikes like the KLR and GS have.
I'm with ya on the lightening. I am shaving every once off my XRL. Less weight less fuel. Green baby green!

Just kidding of course, you know me, right?
Manufactures spend MILLIONS on marketing research. I'll bet they are giving the lions share of the market what it wants in thier new offerings.

Another thing to consider is that the weights of these new bikes just may be disinformation on the part of the manufacturer designed to get people talking about thier new bikes! Then they will just issue a correction later. Hell there is three pages right here about the Honda 250!

If you want to have fun off road try something like this! 220 pounds dripping wet at 35 TWO STROKE HP.
Dirty nasty Euro bikes. I can't believe that a flag-waving, self-respecting Texan would have any of those left hand kicker contraptions in his garage. Tell you what... I'll do you a favor. Considering that I am all about helping out my ADV brothers, I would be willing to store one or both of those abominations in my garage. Of course, I would exercise them regularly to make sure that the seals don't dry out and crack. You know those Euro trash bikes are known for their crappy oil seals.

First, and I want to get this out of the way, let me say I must be lucky, the seals are OEM and good. If a seal were to go bad I would be thrilled to rebuild that Husky motor. I can't wait. Thanks for the offer. I'll have my people get with your people and get some terms in front of us.

But seriously, If a Honda engineer were to view any random ten pages of post here, the majority of discussion revolves around street/road use of the XRL.Same story at the Husky, DR, and KLR fourms. So the conclusion they would draw is that they should build a more GS style bike.

Don't have the big thing in the middle, but I have the two little things at the end. Hope you did your PT. Range of motion will matter alot in a few years.
