I've been riding my XR650R on the street for most of the year, and part of last year. My "main" bike is a GSXR1000, which is currently set up for track duty, so I haven't ridden it on the street at all lately. I keep telling people the GSXR, while being superior in every performance aspect, was less likely to get me in trouble than the XR, which is so much fun its stupid. Something to be said for being able to get in the gas all ham-fisted and the smoothness of a good old fashioned carb.. I put a set of Avon street tires (on spare wheels) and the thing is awfully competant for being so incompetant (I don't bother with the suspension, I just happily bounce and slide all over the place).. So today I get pulled over on the way to lunch and get a ticket for doing a wheelie. Clear road, kept it under the speed limit, no biggie. The bike made me do it. Well, not really, but you guys with street kits know what I mean. In Missouri, just about any points ticket can be changed to a non-points by a lawyer, at the expense of much higher fines. I guess I'll write it off as Fun Tax. I'm sure I saved more in gas (vs driving my pickup) commuting to work every day on it than the fine will be. I'm sure I"m not the only one here to end up in this situation, who else has a ticket story?
