hey guys..i was just wondering if you thought the xr650r would be the right bike for me. im turning 16 but i have been riding for almost7 years and have ridden plenty of race bikes and trail bikes. Im gunna be using this bike to get to school during the week. about a half hour away and then going to blast on some trails during a few weekends here and there. do you think this bike would be the right choice for me?
I use my 650R for school commuting and terrorizing the town, the torque is amazing 0-80 in under 7 seconds....(just a quess)
It's not nearly as good as a 250/450 for tighter trails, but when you get onto the open stuff, it owns. Its amazing to cruise in 5th gear going 50 down a dirt road, look back as you twist on the trottle and watch the rocks being thrown back 50 feet:busted:
