I had an XS 650 in 1973. Rode that bike EVERYWHERE. Lots of desert stuff, hillclimbs and hard roads. I've got a pic somewhere around here of me with this bike. If I can find it, I'll post it up. Nice, reliable motor w/ good torque. I think it would make a pretty decent dual sport motor and wouldn't have any trouble running at superslab speeds either. Might be a little heavy, but look at the lbs. on that new 650 KLR!
