I finally got out on the Xr for a ride today, my first real ride on it since i got it, not just for 10 minute's or so. U can tell i'm on the westcoast since the sun is shining right where i wanted to take the picture's. But the bike just ripped, it tore up the mountain like a beast and just handled like a champ, the wieght is really hidden once u get riding one of these, u forget it's a big 650 because it handle's just as well as other dirtbike i've ridden, it felt better then ridding a 125 through the trail's because the power was insane, and the thing just sticks to the trail and wants to be slide into every corner like a animal. Anyway, that's my review...lol...the bike is great and here's some pic's from the top on the mountain. This trail head is only like a 5 minute ride from the city, and it has a bunch of different trails to take to the top so it's really convienent. Good shot of the ocean looking down at Bellingham Bay and the San jaun islands right behind my bike. For those that don't know where Bellingham is, it's just north of seattle. Another with the San Jaun Islands in the background Another good shot looking from the back of the bike One looking down over the Bay and city One Looking south towards the Olympic mountain's by Seattle and the ocean, but the sun made it so u can't see that far The radio Towers at the top A shot of Mt. Baker, but the clouds kinda hide it so i pointed it out And check out the Sunset All in all this is the best trail bike i've ridden, and once i hit the road to come back home, i almost forgot this things is just as much fun to ride on the street, i can't wait until i get a set of wheels to switch for the street.
