New Bike and New Guy

12 posts in this topic

Hi all I Just got my first real 4 stroke after owning numerous mx 2 stroke bikes. I got interested in motard bikes when gas went up so I decided what could be better than an xr650, in my xr650 research I stumbled on the movie Dust to Glory and have been hooked on Desert stuff ever since. I bought a cr250 to practice for Baja and just sold it for an xr650r. I don't think I will be racing baja any time soon and I dont think I want to motard it but here it is after my first ride.

Thanks guys. The other bike is a 1975 cb500t that I have been making into a cafe racer for the last 2 years.

That was my first street bike. Never thought I'd see one of them again. Mine was poop brown.

Ah yes, poop brown. That was the color for 1975 in 1976 they were maroon and in 77 they were NLA. I feel bad for cutting up such a nice bike that was only available in america for 2 years but hey why not. I will get some more 650 pictures from my ride this weekend. Thanks again for the warm welcome.

My CB is a '72 4-cyl 500.

Also partway through a cafe-style makeover, but it is the 'met-my-wife-designated-project-that-gets-put-on -hold-for-20-years" project.
