MAN...this thing is still alive?

BUMP !

I thought the title said it all and the dust had settled by now already.

B-Dub, we still ride man, and are doing a border blast tomarrow. Just been doing the jet-ski beach thing lately too, been so hot. I think Corral Canyon is on the horizon again, just wish some of us had trucks to get there (whaaaaaaaa). Its a long day dualing it.

You seem like a good dude... and I know it would be fun to hook up a mellow blast along Mex, or in the Corral. Although the weathers real hot in the hills, the border runs are like 20 degrees cooler !

Took off this afternoon for a quick ride up to Otay Mtn with my neighbor. Me on the L and him on his Suzi DRZ4. We swapped bikes for a few miles and he says "Dang, takes a real man to ride that thing!" Nuff said.

So I rode my L to starbucks the other day and was sitting outside enjoying my delicious beverage when a young couple pull up in a compact car pulling a trailer with a very nice plated XR650R in it. They get out and the guy is talking to his very attractive companion about his race that day. They go inside to get some drinks a come back out and sit at a table next to me. I overhear their conversation which goes like this.

Joe, we really need to get a pickup, you know we a going to remodel and we will be making a lot of trips to Home Depot. Well Sally, I've been chatting with the guys over at Bajaracertalk.com and I know exactly the truck we need. There's a shop here in town that makes an awesome four wheel drive Baja truck racer. It has something like 600 horsepower, fiberglass body, awesome suspension, it would be the fastest thing on the street. They make a street legal truck? Well, no, it's not street legal, but they sell a kit that makes it legal. Well I guess that would be fun, we could go four wheeling, right? Well we'd have to buy another seat, but yeah we could. But you could drive it to work, right? I need the car and you never ride you Honda because it tears up your knobbies. Oh yeah, I'll drive it unless it's hot, it won't have A/C, oh, and it will need 93 octane or better and will get about 5 miles per gallon. Well as long as we can get our new appliances home in it. Well, the bed isn't real, so you can't really put anything in it. So you can't carry anything in it, it's only made for one person, it won't be comfortable to drive, and will suck gas, that you can't get at a normal gas station, like crazy. Absolutely Sally, it will be awesome. Sounds like another XR650R story to me, Joe. Why can't you ever buy something that's made to do everything good, like that XR650L? Come on Sally, you know I have to have the biggest, baddest vehicle on the road.

So I was standing in line at St. Peter's Gates in Heaven, and this guy who rode an XR650R was in front of me. St. Peter said, "Guy, what have you done with your life?" And the guy said, "Well, I used to ride my motorbike around in the desert at 100mph, constantly." And St. Peter said, "I don't like liars. No one can do that all the time. With the wind and the dust, that's impossible! [and all you really needed was an L]"

C'mon St. Peter, you know every XR650R owner is a factory sponsored professional racer :D

This shit is plain ol funny now.....

I am NOT a factory sponsored racer, I have all of 0-trophys...I dont even own a truck anymore... I have never even jumped over a house...I own a bike that I think is perfect for what I want. To cruise anywhere,anytime..and has plenty of torque and speed for my own good.

Is it the best bike in the world...


DUH !!!!

Mine will go just a little bit over a hundred if I hold it wide open for 3 days.

Really it will.

Will it hit 100 if I lay down flat on the seat with my head tucked behind the gas tank? :D
