    Hi folks - I'm new on here and hoping for some advice. I'm about to buy a '96 XR600. The seller has been very honest in that it uses a bit of oil and would benefit from a set of rings and valve stem seals. It'll be a restoration project but I intend to use it for the Spring/Summer first. I'm...

    While the driving public may not have used dashboard camera systems in the past, that could change in the near future as drivers become more aware of the potential benefits.
