Greetings, I have always had a thing for the XR650, even though I have not owned one. I am in the market for a new bike though and wanted to get a bit of information to see if it would fit my needs. I am a large person, 6'3" and a bit over 300 pounds. I need to know what sort of power the XR650L makes. I know the power is not great stock, but what sort of numbers would I be looking at after some good mods. Also, I am going to often be carrying a passenger. This is actually the bigger concern for me, as the passenger will be my 8yo son. I need a bike that will give him the comfort to be able to sit for awhile without the squirm factor setting in. The other bike on my current short list is the Buell Ulysses. Yeah, I know they are radically different rides. The Buell offers everything that I am looking for, including outstanding comfort for both the rider and passenger. I do intend to put some serious miles on whatever I get. When I am riding solo, 18-20 hours a day is not unheard of. Is the XR650L comfortable enough for that kind of riding? I appreciate any input you have. Please just give me the straight up. I know you all love your pigs, and I can understand that. I just want to make sure that I would have that same kind of love if I get one.
