Post  Big_John on Tue Apr 26, 2011 12:06 am

Picked up my 2000 XR650R a couple weeks ago. She was mostly stock.....but now looks like this.....






And......here was my first ride this past weekend.

Because I am outfitting my 650R as a 'light' adventure bike. I want the fuel capacity to ride in the mountains for 2-3 days without filling up. And....this is critically important for my trips to Southeast Utah where gas stations are far and few between. I now have the luggage setup. I simply want the top performance of the 650R (Yeah, mine is uncorked and screaming powerful...)....in an Adventure SetUp.

I am not a motorcross....radical single-track rider. I am an Adventure Rider.....the least popular use of the 650R.



My Fieldsheer bags fits the rack perfectly....
