Well Mr.Bibleman you thought you were clear of seeing my Fender flapping in the wind since this topic was locked eh? Looks like MartinFan opened it back up so Im getting out my special green thong just for the ride with you pal!! You see as an "R" rider I know I can get by with riding with just a thong because all the on lookers will be so in tranced with the style and grace of the mighty XRR that they would not even notice what I would be wearing. Now all you old coots with those XRL's would just be laughed at (not only because of your bike) and you would have to limp back home to get your riding gear. Its ok though, one day you "L" guys will turn off your Guns & Roses, get rid of the Parachute pants and Mullets and realize that the 80's are over and that technology for motorcycles has moved on!:smirk:

Comparing the L to the R is apples to oranges. They are two completely different animals.

The L is a mild-mannered, inexpensive dual-sport.

The R is a dirtbike.

Thats really all there is to it.


well put

I though I taught him right. I though I showed him the way. We searched craigslist together and made phone calls. Ebay was searched and repeatedly searched. I had hopes, I had dreams....things were supposed to be different. Its all gone now, its all gone....hope is lost.

It was supposed to be just the two of us.... tearing sh*t up on both of our XR650R's. But he tells me today that hes going to buy an XR650L. My brother, my older brother, on a 650L. Hes dead to me know, I have no brother.....only a sister :smirk:

I own an 07 Xr650L to be honest with yall I love my bike but I just wish they put the XRR engine in the 04-08's Xr650l. Honda shouldve been did that but hey they get better bikes over there in Japan. I might be switching to Ktm or Husqvarna myself due to the fact I want a supermotard bike which Honda havent brought over here yet. They couldve brought the Honda FFX supermotard bike over here. Honda sucks sometimes on the decision making process aswell U.S. when it comes to importing things in2 this country!!

Im so sorry to hear about the lose of your brother.
How he could do that to you just amazes me?? An L instead of an R?? Why didnt he make the totally worst choice and just go with the KLR? I'll tell you what Maroast. Im a few years older than you and Im in the BiG Brother program and Im also an XRR owner and would be more than glad to step in for the brother that is lost and go ride with ya!

Oh by the way little brother, could I borrow a couple of $hundred to buy some new riding boots? You know your own brother will pay you back!:smirk:

we now have at least one confirmation of Bibleman's "short man syndrome"...

...try stuffing a sock in there...it's a well documented "R" riders's mod.

You can do them as soon as you want. I'd do all of it at once as well.

You will find countless informative posts with a quick search for"Daves mods".

[quote name='jetfuel']Yes your right... And you should always wear the right gear when riding..

How'd your dad find my stuff? I thought Meagans law solved that?

Hey "Fred", I see no reason to wait for the basic mods. I did mine with only four miles on it. As far as details just do a search and you'll find everything you need. If anything is unclear just ask.:smirk:
