Thanks Keith.

That's a picture of my bike two weeks after I bought it. I'm getting it ready for a Baja tour 8/22. I have about 275 miles on it now so it should be broke in. This will be my first time in Baja with this bike. :)

I have a 4.3 gal tank, Pro-Tapers with Scotts damper and triple clamp, White Bros pipe, all the smog crap removed with a new intake etc. I'm putting on a fat 140 S-12 on the rear and a 756 front. I'm Ready for Baaajaaaaa.

I think my 520RFS can smoke the BRP. Too bad I can't ride very well!

Where in baja are you going? Hope you have a way to carry extra fueL, you'll need it. This past march I went do with my riding buddies (2 XR650L's, a XR650, and my XR400). We each carried no less than 6 gallons of gas. Also have a cambelback with lots of water, it'll be damn hot down there. Have fun and stay safe.

I'm keeping the DRZ for now, its good on the slower stuff.

I had a XR600 for the first three years and put about 25,000 miles on it. It finaly gave out when we post rode the Baja 2000. I rode it into Cabo spitten and missing to the hotel. I pulled the engine a part and could see day light threw the valve seats. I ended up replacing 6 gears in the tranny too. That was a good bike.

I'll keep an eye out for you, Happy trails.
