Anyone dual sporting their XR600? How is it on the highway? Does it vibrate much? What is good cruising speed until vibration kicks in? What was the fuel economy like? Are you using any DOT tires? Do they vibrate bad on highway? Does NOT having the rubber dampener on the rear wheel cause a crappy ride or wear out clutches (I think they have on XR650L-or older XL600's). I'm considering either getting an XR600 or 400 and converting to dual sport, cause I like the dirt too. Not sure which one. I like to explore, two track, fireroad, single track even (has anyone single tracked their 600, is is it too heavy??? That is one of the big questions - I figured you'd have to go much slower than a 400, but is the weight a bitch??). I've got a KTM 300 EXC that is a blast on single track. I figure the trails /dirt roads I'd like to get to are at least 30-40 miles one way. I've allready asked this question on the XR400 forum, most picked the 400 though it sounded like no one had a 600 or had ever rode a dual sport set up XR600. I can handle the big bike power (I've had '88 CR500 and an '84 YZ 490). And a hell of a lot of dirt bikes in between. However, I've seen the weight issue mentioned quite a bit in the same breath as XR600. I certainly won't be hitting the whoops like I used on my 125. Living in Michigan though, there will be occasional heavy sand up north - which is where I'm sure the weight will kick. The XR400 guys mention the steering rake angle is different versus a 600, ie, the 600 steers slower. Will this just be too much work?? Also, what speed SHOULDN'T I take the 600 through in sand/whoops (what speed does it become a real handful). I am 5" 9", 183 pounds, age 35. In pretty descent shape, not a puss, I still work out doing bench presses / squats/ military presses, curls,/ free weights, etc, cardio (bike), etc. etc. I'd love to hear of anyones dual sporting experience on the 600, and if they had a XR400 for dual sport, and what the pros/cons are. Thanks and happy trails!!!
