Initially I was unsure about what I would do with it. Was just going to get it running and sell it off to make a few bux. But the idea of turning this into a bit of an all rounder and having a dirt bike in the shed again plus something to do a bit of supermoto on seemed like a better option. Thinking about it the XR 600 is the perfect for this. With all these newer four strokes that require rebuilding or major service every 15 to 30 hours the XR should be an easy option as far as that side goes.
So the plan is to give it a freshen up, buy a front end and shock to set up for dirt / adventure duties, modify the standard suspention and set up with supermotard wheels / brakes ect.

I'm willing to sink a few grand into the project after weighing up what it will cost compared to what I can buy for the same money.
