I forgot to tell you guys a funny story about when I picked up the XR chassis.
I got everything worked out to drive up and back in one day, I got a really good deal on the bike and was considering having it shipped. But the shipping was going to be a little pricey so I decided to drive my truck to Maryland to pick it up.
I would still come out ahead driving up instead of shipping but I drive a '96 Dodge 1/2 ton 4X4 with a 318 so I would end up spending $$$ on fuel.
Then my wife and I was talking and she said "can you fit the parts in my car".....hey it gets much better mileage (30+ compared to 13+/-) and its much more comfortable on long trips like that.
And you know what......THE BRP
I know I'm not the first but I bet not many people have hauled an almost complete XR600 (no engine, but it would have fit) in the trunk of their car.
Everything went fine....except I wish I would have put the gas tank in a trash bag or something, the fumes got to me a little.
