Any XRs in VA?

21 posts in this topic

I was just wondering, never seen another XR from Virginia (Beach) here or live on the street. The only thing I see here running around every once a while is a DRZ, probably the same guy I keep seeing :)

I'm just south of Richmond, in Chester. Have a dual sport converted 650R. I don't ride much on the street on the XR, I mostly connect trails, powerlines, etc on it. Have a Suzuki DL-650 (vstrom) for street and dirt roads.

Give me a heads up if you want to ride sometime. We haul 'em up to the mountains about once a month and ride fire roads and some singletrack.

My brother has a DS'ed XR400R right down the street from me. And a guy named Steve up in Winchester has my former 92 XR600R. There was a guy going by the handle of JLPSKYDIVE in No. Va w/ an XRL, and a guy named stonewall out around Harrisonburg w/ a 650R.

so 6.. still pretty exotic. :)

Most of the guys I ride w/ ride Suzi DRZ's. and for good reason.

What is it with those DR/Zs? My two buddies both have a Suzi, one DR350 DS and one currently DRZ400E - not street leagal yet. Well he is working on it...

Anyway, both in VA Beach!! Its becoming the prime DS location here :)

It's 5, I moved back to NC THANK GOD!!! Nothing against VA, but DC sucks!

We go ride in Stuart fairly often. My freind has a cabin up there. Lots of trails and really cool people in the town. :D

You can mark Stonewall off your list. I sold the BRP around the first of the year and went to the blue side. Oh yeah, what's all this talk about nowhere to ride in VA? I have put in over 400 miles from right out of my yard in the last week or so. :) The riding is awesome here. Here are just a few pics of some places I've been in the last 10 days. :D

Hey Stonewall, where the female eye candy with the blue thumper? You always had eye candy with Honda , so how about some with the Yamaha :)

No worries about going blue. I too have big blue thumpers in our garage right next to our red ones :D

ugh! just broke my right wrist for the 4th time last night and it doesn't feel so good right now while typing :)

Qadsan, you shouldn't do that - I bet that hurts and gets old after 4 times :D ... and yes nothing better than having the choice.. hehehe I've got red, yellow and blue in the garage right now. Here are three of my 5 that are sitting here :worthy: . The XRL had to stay home again last sunday.

qadsan,

I don't have any eye candy pics yet with the Yami. I'm working on it though.

Sorry to hear about the wrist. I've been trying to heal up two dislocated shoulders and a cracked collarbone myself. Getting old is hell. :)

Here's a pic from the archives. :)

I'm in the Allegheny Highlands near the border of WV. There are hundreds of miles of riding available right out of my yard. :D
