There's alot of nice roads in that area, and I'd like to take a little time for some photography down there. Anyone interested? Also, I could leave Saturday around 1:00, but that's a late start for an overnighter.

Jesus you guys suck !

I just volunteered to drive Dan to Ohio on Sunday to pick up a WR 250 he found. Oh well, he did drive me to upstate N.Y. to get my KX. Fair is fair.

See you later.

Pttttttttt....

Ricardo, did you order tires yet?
Yeah, ordered them yesterday. Dunlop 220's. Never had those.

Otherwise, im installing some street tires on the xr650r, and going to explore a forest road off of route 33 before brandywine.

Just came back from clinton cycles, I was about to cancel the order when they realized the order wasnt placed at all!!! 3 months of waiting for a gear shifter, and all this time it wasnt even ordered.

THen I got charged 1790$ for a tail bag.

I did check out the rocket III. Doesnt look as good in person as it does in the mags.

Sure, which ones you want looked at? What happened with the 650r you wanted to get?

The xr600 is good. Lighter than the xr650r by a few pounds, but its air cooled, less horsepower etc.. Its similar to the xr650l. But has no electric start.

xr600's are Very reliable, but unless you get an amazing deal on them id stick with the xr650r. The aftermarket for the 650 is amazing.

the xr600 was dropped as soon as the xr650r came on the scene. If I found a xr600 for like 1500-1800, that is an amazing deal.

I've ridden an '88 XR600R. Manly, stone simple bike.



Easy to ride though. Not sure I'd want to spend too many pavement miles on it (assuming it could be made legal).
