I don't know - that XL600 suits him well!
It sits lower than most newer bikes, but still has the torque of the 600. I'd almost
say that he'd do well with an overhaul to it's engine and keep it for a while.
I think the newer 650's would be too top-heavy, and the newer 400's sit higher...
The more I ride my XT550, the more I question why they aren't still imported... I'm getting to be very fond of it, and can see why Phil likes his managable (sp?) XL600.
