Me and my buddy just put a hot cam stage 1 in his xr650l. It runs like a top.

Thats my kind of ride. Ive restored a few old Kaws and Hondas. But my favorite task is dragging a heap from behind a barn and hobbling it together just enough to kick it down the road. New fancy bikes arent my thing, half the thrill for me is riding a beat down old dog

It's nice. But then again I like thumpers too. Who needs four cylinders anyway! LOL

They were for a while, yes. They had stopped importing them here.

One of the more popular bikes globally, including with police, in the US people want either a big touring bike or a smaller off road/dual-sport bike.

Mine is basically an old enduro more in the class of the R1000 BMW's whose more recent smaller cc bikes are actually made by Aprilia. The BMW "roadsters" are most comparable to today's Honda-imported 500 or 700cc "adventure" 3rd generation Transalp bikes, and they're around...

Blessings of the bikes in Baldwin, MI. Rode up for the day with the wife and her mom and dad. The picture of the bikes was when we first got there. The bike count doubled by the time we left.Then on the way back we took a detour to Lake Michigan for a few hours then out to eat dinner. 253 miles total today. Also I broke 10k miles on my bike today also.

Watch out for other drivers, and assume they don't see you. Remembering this is vital.

Enjoy. One of my first sport bike rides was on a 91 or 92 fzr750. That was after learning on a 70s honda 100, then a late 70s Honda 750 four.
