Hi y'all. I've been in and out of this forum for the last 2 years since I bought my 2000 XR600r. It came from a single owner who ran it for preruns on the Baja 1000 for his buggy. I figured I'd finally say hello. I am a little 5'8 dude and this is my second dirt bike in 15 years. Its a bit tall, but manageable. If it weren't for the ride height and low-end I probably woulda ended up on the ground more than once so far. Great damn bike. I actually got it street legal in AZ when I bought it. I'm in AL now. I sold my street bike because I never rode it; I had more fun riding the XR. In the middle of my newest mods right now, to include a 200w stator, Halogen kit, Fork stabilizer, and I will post some pics when its all done. Great forum. thanks for all the good advice so far. Anyone in lower AL who wants to ride sometime, lemme know.
