Hi. I know that's a stupid title, but it's true. My wife wanted to ride my XR650R this past weekend. She has an XR250, but insisted she could handle the "kitted" 650. So, I let her try it out Sunday afternoon. She took off fine, nice and smooth, but when she grabbed an XR250's worth of throttle, she just about lost it! Of course the front end came up, and her neck could be plainly seen snapping back in a rag doll type motion. Fortunately, she had the presence of mind to get off the gas quick, and very very gently apply pressure to the throttle instead of wicking it open like she did. . Anyway, after that ride, she complained about my big XR as being "too touchy", "trigger happy", and "why does it take off so hard?". Hahah. I got a kick out of that. She said she would ride it again if I could do something to make it "less touchy, and more like my bike", said the wife. hahaha. Please note she has still not ridden my '99 CR500.. I could never be that cruel though.... LL.
