Power of R over the L

Anyway, the point is the bike doesnt really matter as much as the skill of the rider...

This is certainly true when folks ask "will my bike beat my buddies bike..."

But when I'm SHOPPING for a bike, the "skill of the rider" portion of the equation is fixed: me. Then the differences in bikes absolutely comes into play.

A given rider at pretty much any skill level will almost always be faster on the lighter, more powerful R than the heavier L (modifications to either bike being held equal).

Of course, this begs the questions of whether faster is neccessary, better, or worth the extra expense and compromise.

Yea, I think it was decided that the R guys are compensating for something. :busted:

You mean, the one that started with:

" XR650L: Best Bike in the World for the kind of riding I want to do now. If I want to do some other kind of riding, maybe I'll buy a different bike.

Now shaddup!

I just mounted a cup holder on my L.

Yes, but can you ride a wheelie and the cup holder tilts so you don't spill or when you want a drink you pull into a wheelie and drink as it pours out?

Hey its been over a year since I ponied my "L" up to starbucks to grab a drink..

then we hit the hills for a few more hours

its nice to hooligan outta the hills, grab a "frap" and go ride a few more hours..lol

Electric Start! :thumbsup: Nuff said! :p

I enjoyed this thread and Bruce you have been very informative! :cry:

Electric start, pfft! More pansyism, just gain some weight you stick figures! I kick start my R and my ported and cut head modded Cr500 in house shoes. My neighbor (he rides a dr350, yeah!) tried to start my r and couldn't get the kicker to move, what a wuss!:thumbsup:

Sheeesh, even the CRF450X has an electric start.

Why would anyone want a bike that you have to kick when you could have a magic button? That's so 90's. :thumbsup:
