Daar is nie n enkel bike vir alles nie. Jy sal n eerlike gesprek met jouself moet he. Wil jy rerig gaan bokspring oor die klippe, jaag in die veld, spoorsny deur die ruigtes, of lang ente ry op n surfboard seat innie wind met daai rondloop 21 duim voorwiel?

Soos ek ouer en sagter word het ek begin compromise.... na die gemaklike kant :biggrin: Nou tel n lae, ligte, gemaklik, brandstof doeltreffende en goed toegeruste twin met cast wiele baie meer punte as die XR650R van lank gelede.

For short day trips or going to the likes of the FS Bash you should not throw away the little CRF250L. In my opinion, a very lekker little bike for day trips

Almal praat hier oor hoe wonderlik die DR650 is maar waar de hel kry mens hull te koop so let just pass on that one.
My beste Thumper dus vÍr was my destydse nuwe XR650L wat eers "n  Dyno Tune Jetting kit en Dyno Tune op Dyno masjien gehad.

Gooi dadelik die XR650L se smog pump (breather restriction pomp stront af) en hy loop honderd keer beter.

Myne gepimp voor ek hom verkoop het!! :'(
