I took my piggy on on an adventure and the bike worked flawlessly!
I love the gobs of power the XR650R has. I wouldn't trade this bike for any other. :crazy:

So, here's the story:

2 Oregon dual sport riders in their mid-30's (my brother and I) go on their first enduro race. Plus, we went on a killer dualsport ride. :ride:

Great story and pics :crazy:

Get some good glove liners and minimize the blisters on those longer rides. MSR makes a good liner called "Wick Dry Under Gloves". Off Road Specialties also sells a good kevlar glove liner. Here's some links to check out...

I'm jealous.... not of the sore quads, but the experience. Looks like a blast. Maybe someday.... Great story and pics.
