Nice one Richie, same as me old one which Len (Airwolf) has now :thumbup:
Heya Bob,

How did you get on with it? I'm 5'11'' and can barely put my feet down it's bloody massive. It seems quite 'aggressive' for a 625 single, not quite what i'm used to, plus the vibrations feel it's gonna shake me apart.

Bloody good fun though :)

You'll get used to the 'vibes', I never found it a really bad problem. The engine as you say has a amazing power (i had power-wheelies in 3rd gear) and yet it still returns 60-65 mpg. I'm only 5'8'' but never found it a real problem once I'd got my mate to set-up the rear sag correctly as the previous owner was a lot taller and heavier than me.

I'm sure Len will be along soon as he has had the bike longer than I did, I only sold it as I prefered to keep my 950 out of the two bikes but I still miss it. Having said that I'm happy that Len bought it as I know he uses it as It was intended to be used.

Here's some video of my XR650R and (mostly) a Honda CRF 450X in the desert, plus somme video of a buddy's 650R as well. It's helmet-cam stuff, most of it filmed from the 650R, but some from the CRF.

It's advisable to click "WATCH IN HD" under the video, or else you'll be subjected to horrible Youtube quality.
Takes a minute longer to load, hope it's worth it.

Good lord, that looks great! I am so envious ... my envy may turn to hate if you keep posting awesome stuff like that!
