I am thinking about a dualsport xr650r. I am planning a trip to baja in march of 07. I have read that the bike does fine in normal dual sport conditions. What I would like is some information if any body has put a 3k mile trip on them going from, example, Calif. to the tip of Baja and back. I have read the sub frame is weak and needs to be modified. Will this bike do the trip and in what ways have you kept it from being being stolen, hince no key on the bike. I probably should buy a klr as my friend has but I just can't seem buy one myself. Am I in the wrong mind set? Afterall the xr650r is the king of Baja. I could go with the more street models but I have had a street model in the past and it seems one gives up alot on those once in the dirt. On the trip it will be mostly hard road riding with occansional stretches on the beach and well as some exploring (which could be anywhere.) Any information would be helpful. Thanks.
