After a few months of research I finally decided to go with the xr over the crf. I am still getting harrased by my friends but know the xr was the right bike for me. I have not had the chance to ride the bike much, it is 10 degrees outside and I need to go over the bike. There must be a jetting issue cause it just don't run crisp. Hesitates pretty bad. Oh, I bought this bike from my local dealer with low hours on it, 2001 model, for $2600. This week I will make sure it has been uncorked properly and will go over the jetting.
