I like to use mine as a paperweight/boat anchor........

But, I ride mine everywhere, and I always shock the crap out of guys that are on these motocross bikes. They think there is no way a 300 lbs dirtbike can be a woods weapon. Its always great to prove them wrong. :applause:

I use mine for everything from super tight insane single track in the Piutes to wide open desert. It helps to be a big guy on the tight stuff.

No, I understand the guy's question here.

I have heard people say the bikes over heat in the slow stuff and in traffic.
I have heard people say they are too heavy for the tracks and tight stuff.
I have heard people say that they are shite for long distance work. (too frequent oil changes)
I have heard people say they are no good for freeway riding.

I can see the guys confusion here.

Bullet proof ? I'm fortunate enough to live in a safe neighborhood.

So thats why I could not get any college Chick-a-dees to ride with me after I changed my plastics to black:excuseme: !!

I bought my 650R pig for what it is truley built for? RIDING!! It goes exactly where my little 2banger lightweights go and I seem to enjoy it more since Im riding it to & from the trails. As for hwy use I think its great. After owning a couple of supposed "real Dualsports" I found the XR was the bike for me and my dualsporting needs!! Its also a great place to sit stuff on in the garage.:applause:
