New XR650L guy from Georgia

Happy Trails everyone! Last Saturday I bought my first new dirt bike since I was a teenager. Back in the day, I bought a new 70's SL125, and later on, a new TL125. I did not ride for many years and when I got back into the hobby, I bought a 2004 H-D Road King Custom. The Road King has now been replaced with the XR and I have mixed feelings about selling my RK. I'm 60 years old and didn't realize off road would be quite as punishing on my body. Anyway, I'm glad to be here and hope to learn many things about my new ride. I have ordered the Fritzco sprocket, Rox adjustable risers, Protaper bars, and Cycra Ultra Pro wrap-around hand guards. Next, I have to lower it some and I think I will try the lowering link first, and then if that's not enough, I'll get a Seat Concepts lowered seat. I'm 6', 210 lbs. with 31" inseam. It's hard to move this big thing around in tight spaces when my toes are all that touch the ground. Thanks for letting me join.

Welcome aboard. I too had a 2004 RK Custom. It was a trouble free and comfortable ride.
