Another n00b in Seattle

Hello all,

Thought I'd introduce myself before I start to ask all my n00b questions.

I've been riding street bikes for about twenty-five years and have probably owned a dozen or so different bikes including an XL250 and a DT250 a while back. My current ride is a mildly modded 1200 Bandit but I want something lighter and more nimble for an around town thrasher bike.

Is there much of a performance difference between the XR650L and the XR 650R? Is there as much aftermarket stuff for the XR-L?

Since it will be for road use I've been watching for a good stock XRL and I can Moto-fy it as budget permits.

I will now proceed to alternately lurk and ask annoying questions for the next several month until I pick up a a bike to tinker on. Then I will quit lurking and just ask annoying questions.

welcome! you can hit up fellow area riders for test rides, most will be happy to help. any moto type bike on the road is a ripping good time! don't get caught up in the "have to have the ultimate" thing, I have almost as much fun taming a pig :D
yeah, I got it at moto international, wish they were still a dealer...

I am happy with mine, it sure is fun, and reliable. 12,000 miles and counting :thumbup:
