I understand that you are oposed to putting double NOS on a geo, but what do you have against spuermoto??? Have you ever ridden anything besides you XL650???

I would rather have a 89/90 ? GB 500. for that ...looks like a 50's norton 500 single. That 'road race' 650 has a intresting pipe set up ? Doesn't look like that one gets muddy?

i don't know about that bike. but my buddy dyno'ed a highly modifyed xr650 and it had 95 foot pounds of torque. thats more than any 600 crotch rocket. so it would most likly kill on off the line of a drag race. and maybe win but i don't know. :banghead:

Leave it to the Japanese to screw up a perfectly good dirt bike. It appears that rice-boy has too much time on his hands. What next, a CBR desert racer?

Yeah! Or perhaps a new form of racing series using TZ or Aprillia roadracing bikes on motocross tracks! :banghead:

Sheesh, you guys, haven't any of you heard of Supermoto, either?

That XR650 is dressed to KILL! I hope mine is as kewl when I'm finished. That's a sweetheart. :banghead:

XR's - they're not just for dirt anymore... :banghead:

I think they've heard of it. I'm just gathering they're not big fans!
And GoldWings are not just for the street anymore! :banghead:
