Hey all,

It's Sunday afternoon and i just got back from a great ride on the XR with my girlfriend of 10 years. :thumbsup: The weather was great. Good stuff.

Anyway, I would just like to point out that if you ride alot with someone on back do not be afraid of any engine mods IE: Carb, piston, cam, exhaust etc etc. I was worried of all my mods effecting LOW END grunt...... NOPE.

I must say we chugged and lugged from 7 am till 1 pm and the bike worked great. I had all kinds of low speed power to pull the 2 of us around. She knows nothing at all about bikes but she did notice the difference from stock to modified.

With just me on it the bike go's like a raped ape. With 2 of us on it it still pulls hard as she will let me go with all kinds of throttle left out the gears.

Happy trails
