:lol2:
Jacob had one and that thing was bad ass. He could easily keep up with the big boys on that thing right up untill his knees started hitting the handle bars. The boy was outgrowing dirt bikes faster than shoes there for a while. We still have some old plastics, bark busters & a skid plate if you need them although they might be a little too well used for that pretty one.

Now back to the sixfiddy... I’m going to put my Road Glide back together & get it off the lift tomorrow then take the Honda apart. :think: Yea that’s the plan.
Sorry bout the thread jack.

My xr650l was one of my favorite bikes of all time
