Hello my righteous fellow L riders. May I take a moment of your time to explain why our comrades on that "other" red bike incessantly give us grief? Well, it's obvious to even the casual observer. It all boils down to insecurity. We all know the L is a manly man's bike. It's obvious, it's indisputable. Guys like us don't need to make a statement, we ARE statements. I guarantee that to a man, our R brethren were the types that got pushed around in school whereas we were the types to do the pushing around. This whole thing (and again, I guarantee this!) is related to short man syndrome!!! Don't question me on this, I know people!!
I beseech you therefore, my bosom buddies, pity these poor souls and be nice!:applause:

It boils down to" insanity "perhaps, "not insecurity" to want to run a dirt bike in the 100 mph + range, versus down to the local Starbucks for a cup of coffee. And I know my boy Jeff Ward would make most guys on this site eat those "short man's words" on a older stock XR250L... :eek: :cry:
For the record, I am 6'2"... and its nice not to push around all that extra weight that "you types" need to with your L's. I guess it is kinda of like having a fat chick for a girlfriend! :foul: :eek: :eek: :eek: :applause: :) :bonk:

Just get an "R" with a plate, then you have the best of both worlds. You can go roost on a starbucks lawn then go inside, take a stinky dump after your grande espresso enema and leave the door open when you leave.

Wow!

I didn't really think of "L people" different than "R people".
I just thought your bike sucked.
Thank you for setting me straight.



















J/K I hope to see ALL on the trails. R,L,Y,S,K,2 stroke and 4 strokes what ever you can think of.

Put together a race without any support vehicles. L vs R any mods you want.

Start the race in New Mexico, travel to Canada via the Continental divide.

I have a feeling the L would be the best choice and might actually win.

I'll bet the L rider wouldn't have baboon butt like the R rider and actually would enjoy the ride. Just my opinion.

I think the insecurity comes from this post:prof:

I think the short man syndrome is when you see a little guy on a full dress harly, or a 1000 instead of a 600 crotchrocket....not when you see a 6"2 240 pound guy flying through the dessert on a BRP.

What about me with the XR600. I guess that I have to give everyone a hard time. I try...

To you L riders - What's wrong with you? Can't you even start your bike?

For the 650R riders - What are those radiator thingies? They look like something to get smashed leaving you on the side of the trail.

I don't think it would be appropriate to make fun of that bike with it being the beginning of our ancestral line .... :applause: you should always respect your elders..:)

we ride Ls because we live in places where you cant or is a pita to plate Rs and some of us just ride the street. the L is a handful in the tight woods but after riding in the nevada desertI cant imagine it being tough to ride at all in that stuff except for mabye deep sand. btw to all you desert guys out there i think desert riding is awsome.
