Ain't that the truth. When I am flat out getting it, I lay down on the handlebars at 80 mph and watch the speedometer fly. Come and get it you little 450s.
And I can ride at 95 mph (not top speed of 104) as long as the dirt road stays straight. The BRP is a desert bike first.
I have taken it out on an MX track. It's not a jumper, but it can play. What I really like is the BRP on an oval dirt track that is banked and sandy.

This last summer my "Betty" took me on a ride around Lake Superior - 1470 miles in two days, (on MT21's!). Pretty amazing to me that one bike could be so capable in such diverse ways.
By the way - she used less than half a quart of oil going around that lake.

I used to love banked sandy oval tracks back when I had a TT500 in the 70's. I wish I had my XR650R back then cause it sure would have been fun. I haven't been on a good oval track in a long time, except for the simple home made ones in the deserts. Got any nice banked sandy ovals in AZ

Yikes! That's some serious mileage on a bike I hope you had the tall soft seat foam

Spodes are color blind. If you are a spode you will be spode-like on any brand or kind of bike. If you have skills you will ride whatever you have between your legs and get it done. The bikes today are the best that have ever been but I still have not seen a bike make a Zero into a Hero just because it was a certain brand or color.
:usa:But don't stop flaming each other! Bring it! This has been fun to see the Maytag Repair Men battle the Blue Meanies and the Woodie Wood Peckers! Where are the Pumpkin Nazi's???
By the way...My bike is better than your bike! Neener Neener

Or in my case a whole lot of money....Before the revolutionary bike came out (WR400F) I had two XR640's, two bikes, two years ...a cam per bike / per year. The problem with bore/cam kits it takes away the reliability that XR's are known for. If you go this route...carry a tow strap, don't ride alone and don't stray too far from the truck.
With enough money you can do anything!
How about punching out our little 450's to 650's.
As the old saying goes:
A LITTLE DAB'LL DO YA!!

OK...OK... Your Momma is so poor... she still has her own Tah Tah's!

Did you go out gunning for Big Rig riders ? Got an itchy trigger finger? Waiting to jump on any one who tries to shoot down your skinny short stroked weakling of a blue ball bearinged Yamaha Ha Ha ?
Large Bike envy? Stroke inadequacy?
Shouldn't you be out in the garage filing down your clutch hub, so it's ready for the next ride ?

That looks like a fun bike
I wonder how the XR650R turbo would compare?
