I want to say he made a post here a while back about the GSXR, and his trips to the strip.

My poor, Bandit - only good for toting the front wheel. I don't get to ride nearly as much as I'd like (needing a car seat 24/7)...

I bought this bike from the dealership I was at up North, for $1500. It came in as a trade and needed some attention in a few areas. It was cheap, and keeps me on two wheels. It sits in the garage now, but I refuse to sell it - I've gone without before, and won't do that again... even though I get to ride other bikes all the time (as a technician).

Nice! I have an 01 XR400. I love those thumpers. One of my dream bikes is a supermoto XR650R. I actually won $10 in a bet with a dude, since he didn't believe me that Honda made a liquid cooled XR haha.

Yuuuuup. XR650R was liquid cooled. XR650L was air cooled.

The 650R is an absolute monster.

I could have picked up an xr400 but wanted the 600 instead. Northern Michigan is all sand so that's why I went with it. Came with a Clarke 5 gallon tank, 200w Ricky Stator, Supertrapp exhaust, skid plate, Baja designs lighting with an Acerbis rear fender, extra set of Excel wheels and a bunch of extra stock parts. Front forks are redone for the heavier tank. It came from Northern Arizona, it's jetted lean right now at our elevation so I'll have to rejet it asap.

It scoots, isn't insanely loud and it's already street titled. I could have picked up any other 600 and sank the $700 into it to make it streetable, but this was the better option. Plus it was owned by an older cat that has had it since new.

Sooo.....I'm going to go through it just because that's what I do when I buy shit. Adjust the valves, redo the carb, new cables and probably new plastics. Has newer sprockets and o-ring chain, I'll probably put street tires on the extra set of wheels and Supermoto it when it isn't up north.

They really need to do a re-design of that bike, modern brakes, suspension, frame e/t/c it would sell incredibly well...

Nice dude. Check the choke plate ASAP. Also, make sure that the snorkel isn't on the airbox....
