Well after having the XR650R in motard trim for that past 2 years I swapped over the wheels and went out and got it proper dirty. Whats a blast! Need to get the suspension dialled in as it's fitted with stiffer Eibach springs but other than that it felt great.

Here's a wee pic of her now, looking the part with new alloy tank and CRF shrouds. Just need to fit new black gripper seat cover and it's done.

Oh and need to get fitter !!!! Still ache :mad:

Cheers guys. No plans to sell the motard kit as I plan to do some more tarmac terrorising next year and a few track days as well. best of both worlds really.

After much stick from KTM riding freinds that the BRP was just a tractor I made this subtle mod. Kinda 'works' ploughing team dontcha think?
