Hey everybody! I'm goin' to pick up my new bike tomorrow: a used '94 XR650L. I'm really excited to ride on some mellow dirt roads to start with and work my way up in the genre. I've never ridden a dirt bike of any kind. I do a ton of street riding on an 'o3 RC51, mostly long trips and a few track days. I've been riding for about three years. I'm a younger guy @ 22 and I work as a merchant mariner (engineering). I love working on my own bikes, and anyone elses for that matter! This forum was recommended to me by a buddy and so far it's been great reading. Here's a photo of myself above Hell's Canyon, Oregon taken this past August.
