Curious as to the average height/weight of XR650R riders.

50 posts in this topic

Not "L" riders! :cry: I want to know "R" riders who ride dirt 90% + of the time. It seems like there are very few smaller guys who ride the XR650R in the dirt. I've ridden w/ about 7 or 8 piggy riders and they are all big boys. Makes sense since the pig is such a beast. :cry:

So a couple of questions for you "R" riders

1) Height

2) Weight

3) # of years riding

4) Type of terrain you mostly ride on the "R" (i.e. desert, tight twisty 1st/2nd gear stuff, mx tracks, climbing etc..)

For me:

1) 6'7

2) 250 lbs

3) 3 months

4) So far all 1st/2nd gear tight rutted rocky stuff. Can't wait for desert season!! :cry:

3. 34 months of riding, 56000 miles among 10 different bikes.

4. My XR650R is designated as a motard/track bike right now. I rode approx. 300 off-road miles on it, and found that it was more fun riding it on pavement than dirt.

1) Height - 6'2"

2) Weight - 160 lbs

3) # of years riding - 16+ (30 yrs old)

4) Type of terrain - Desert, some tighter stuff, street motard soon.

I am one of the light guys that likes these things. I started riding the two-smokes when I was young and did not know any better. After high school my girlfriend (wife now) had a person she house sat for offer her a 50 mile old 92 XR600 and similar year Yamaha Quad for $2K. I bought it because the price was so good. Since then I have prefered the heavier XR's over everything. I have tried to ride the lighter new style 4-strokes and can't find anything that I ride as well. I just sold my street bike after 5 months because I am more comfortable on the dirtbike/Motard. I love this thing!!! :cry:
