I think the only thing that stops a XR650 is running out of gas,and look it has a big tank!

But, they do have a cult following, if you decide to get rid of it.

Looks nice! Fairly new, low-ish miles. I'd buy it!

I only paid $1,500 for my '93 with 25k on it.

Apparently 1983 and 84 were lemon years for the XR/XL 200/250, my XR250 is still to date the biggest POS bike that I have ever owned.................even though I know Honda has made good bikes since then, I have never even considered a Honda when looking for "my next bike"

I would ride the shit out of that, right after I took the tool bag off the front.

Seems like a great deal.
