I have put over 1100 miles on my 2002, XR650L, in the tight woods of the Southeast. These tight trails often have deep ruts, sand, slippery wet clay, hills, mud and lots of water crossings. The XR650L is simply too heavy, and too big for challenging trail riding... Honda must build an under 260lb, XR450L with electric start, and street legal. It is important to be able to ride the streets to get to the trails. If Honda built it, they would own the Enduro market. If they don't soon, I will have to trade for the Suzuki DRZ400...or as I have heard, Yamaha will make the WR450 street legal for 2004...
