Here is mine, just got it a month ago:

So far what I've added:
Baja designs kit
Battlax street tires
speedo

future things to add:
taller gearing
Seat
Supermoto wheels
HID headlight
exhaust system
Cam
New plastics

Mostly just used for commuting and playing around in the canyons and dirt roads. Really fun bike when you start pushing it, cruising is boring. I already put 800 miles on it in the month that I've owned it. I bought the bike with a street title for $2000 and so far put $600 into it, great bike for the money. The 650r has to be one of the best bikes honda has ever made for its ability to do just about anything.

Hey dude...i m using michelin T63...but both the tyre is about to go...it only done about 2k KMs and the rear is bout to finish soon...i m in the process in modding XR400 rear wheelset to fit the XRR...once its done,i have a pair of rear wheels...one will be fit with Dunlop D604 Trailwing and the other will be a set of Kenda Off-rd tyres...so whenever the weekend comes to hit the off-rd,i will have a better set of rear tyre...

Heres some pictures of my 06. Got it last month the day after it came out of the crate. I took these on my first ride with it. Not really legal yet but its plated. Clarke 4.3, renthal bars, cycra handguards, moose racing skid plate. Since the pics I've uncorked it and put on a Procircuit T4 full stainless system. I love this bike, getting it ready for a 600 mile road trip on saturday.
