Re: HONDA XR650L OWNER'S SIGN IN

LOL! I got the sling too. When we get all healed up, we need to link up. I hope to be riding again by Novemberish. The sad part of this whole thing is that I wasnt even doing anything fun. I was holding a couch and I felt a pop. no pain, just couldnt reach across to get back on my bike. Picture when the coyote runs off the cliff wearing a rocket jet pack and roller skates. The rocket blows up, then question marks come out of the cloud, that was exactly what i felt like. LOL!

Re: HONDA XR650L OWNER'S SIGN IN

Just picked this beast up today. 2005 with only 2,600 miles on it. Nice little upgrade from my 250.

Looks and sounds like a good find. If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for it? Thinking about selling my 2006.

Re: HONDA XR650L OWNER'S SIGN IN

It was about $3600 from a dealer. The bike is in impeccable condition. Has an over sized tank, luggage rack, Henry/Reed bars & folding clutch and rear brake controls. All else seems to be bone stock from what I can tell.

Thank you for picking this thing up! It has been tempting me since they got it in stock. You got a great deal IMO.

Re: HONDA XR650L OWNER'S SIGN IN

The temptation was too strong. I finally pulled the trigger thanks to fellow TWTr KawRider and brought home a 2000 XR650L. First things first, I'm ordering new springs for front and rear from Cannon Racecraft. I'm way too excited to be in the XRL club

Re: HONDA XR650L OWNER'S SIGN IN

Hey do any of you know of a dualsport rider who lives in Highlands Texas? when in Texas, I live in San Jacinto RV Park. Anyway, i passed an older gentleman. He had a GS sitting under the 5th wheel, but i never see it move. Thought maybe he didn't have anyone to ride withso thought i'd just ask the question.

Well it is a GS. Good chance it's in need of some repair before he can ride it. Lol Honestly though sounds like a good ice breaker question to meet a neighbor.

Re: HONDA XR650L OWNER'S SIGN IN

Yah, I think so too. Actually, you were the first person that I thought of SB. The guy even looks like you. LOL! I noticed the bike several times, but I hadn't stopped. I should be back out there 9/18, I think I'll stop in and meet him.

Re: HONDA XR650L OWNER'S SIGN IN

Jim Wilkerson has a GS, but he's in Baytown - probably not the same guy. I don't think you'd mistake him for Dave.
