Btw, really like the work you did on your bike.

Thank you. The goal wouldn't be making the XR650R better at what it's already good at but to make my lightweight adventure bike better than what it is now. Just starting to kick the idea around but I'm thinking it would be lighter than what I have now (398 tank empty). Dunno....lots to ponder. It's fun to think of the possibilities.
