I've got to admit that the XR650R is a great bike once it's started

And a DR is a Shit bike started or not :). On another note, I have been watching the Dakar wondering how the BRP would do up against the current 450's. I reckon those crazy Husky riders aboard the Unbreakable XR would send Cyril packing!

If I get to the stage where my engine vacuum decides how much throttle I shall recieve, I will get my mobility scotter hotted up nicely.

It would be good to have a retro race with ALL the big boys...KLX650, KTM625, KTM690R, XR650R, TTR600 and chuck a KLR and a DR in there for good measure

Its amazing how the manufacturers keep on ignoring the apparent reliability issues of EFI, they have been at it for years now and still it has no major gains in any type of motorcycle.

It's a pity Honda didn't have the know how at the time to fit an electric start to the XR650R.
Apparently they still don't
