Flying Dutchman with a BRP Say Hi

Post  rikco on Sat Jan 02, 2010 11:47 pm

Hello All

Im new on this forum and i got me a brp from the year 2000 about 9 months ago but i did not ride it yet (exept for the test ride ) cause i got no drivers licence yet.
I hope to get the licence this month (if i pass )
My plan is to make it 75% of the year in supermotard mode en the rest for the enduro rides.

here some pics:

it was like this:


then this:








now its like this:


and it's gonna be like this next summer:






more mods will follow when i got my drivers licence

First off welcome to the forum.

I also have the Excel rims, but my hubs are yellow. Tell you the truth I only used them once so far and it was just to play around my local streets. I'm into the dirt thing more now a days, and the rims/tires came with the bike. I been riding street for a long time.

If you want to get together next spring/summer/fall for some dirt riding, let me know. Hell I can always toss on the supermotard rims too for some street fun...so either way let me know.

Also check out the advrider.com forum under 'Thumpers'...there is a XR650R thread, a few of them. Also if you want Colorado road, or trail reviews check my forum at cowrw.com. It is starting to lean more towards dirt...but I review what I ride. Hope to add video reviews this year.

Otherwise great looking bike you got there, looks clean. Hope to read post from you soon.

@ aurora

haha a ninja
i placed it inside to do some little electrical things on the brp cause it was too cold outside so why not


@ modette

im gonna have a look on those sites you posted, i been on thumpertalk before but dunno anymore if i regd there
and sure i like to ride together with more big red pigs but im from the netherlands so its a bit to far to meet up

i wish i could ride the roads yall drive, outhere its only flat land so we must go to cross circuits or into the woods.

What's the riding like off-road?

Post  Bump on Fri Jan 22, 2010 6:47 pm

Is it all forest? Or is there some variety?
