Yo XR Riders!! Big Jimi..45 year old Ski-Area Manager, married with children 12 & 10. I'm an old-school Enduro rider & started riding in the mid-seventies on DT Yamahas in Durango, Co., where I lived for 15 years & went to college. Rode those bikes anywhere & everywhere, so my favorite riding is singletrack, fire-roads & backroads. I was heavily into the Mtn./Road bicycle racing scene in Durango, & still ride bikes alot to try to stay in shape. I was a ski patroller for a long time, & all my buddies rode Enduros, so I'm kinda keeping things rolling along in Ct. like out in Co.. I love the XR650L because it is so reliable, rides great & is the perfect bike for adventure riding!! It's always good on an XR!
