I figure I can do everything on my xrl that I can do on a haski. Its also comes with a week sub frame too. I was looking to buy a 690e(Thanks Mike). I was going to order a mecca system fairing. Kinda to make my own version of a 690A. Wanted to make it to a adventure bike. But I figure the 640a will fit the bill. Joel. Are you sure your legs are 32 inch inseam? I think I am going to have to ask you to allow me to take your 640a for a spin? Thanks Ben

The huski is way WAY!!! better than than the XRL on long highway stints. My last trip to Baja, my riding partners Brand new XRL basically blew up in under 3k miles, and Honda blamed him for it even though FOUR dealers told him it's oil usage was 'normal' and he was religiously adding oil to it.

I think i remember reading that rr.your friends name was Peligo? He fixed the bike and he still ownes it. I talked to him when I first got my bike. I think that was just a bad one. I have done some mods to my bike to make it a better all around bike. but it does lack the power on the newer bikes on the market. I don't want to crack into the motor if I don't have to. Your bike is nice but just not for me. I don't think it will fill the billet i am looking for.Thanks ben

I'd believe you, but for the fact that the dealers were all ok with a new bike burning oil. He does still have it, but he's shopping for a ktm

And for the record, My bike's not for sale :) I just really really like it.
