One ride on either of the two bikes and she'll change her mind.

Holy Crap, i just read all 125 pages of this thread over the last 5 days and i'm so full of information right now im bursting at the seams!! Just received my Wolfman enduro tank bag and front fender bag in the mail yesterday so i'm slowly converting into a little adventure bike. i've been burning some oil lately that leads me to believe i will need to do rings and piston and everything else that goes along with this before i will truly trust that the bike can do a 5 day ride with no hiccups. its painful to think about it, but i know i will not regret it.

You might not like this. I didn't and sold it right away. Invades seating position too much. If you have the big Acerbis, the GL Wrap is a solid performer.

as of now i only have the stock tank and since i'm 6'4 when i sit up close to the tank it is almost uncomfortable to use the rear brake and awkward to shift, maybe i'm just not used to it yet since i probably only have 500 off-road miles in the 3 years i've owned the bike. i'll give it a try and see!!

Has this thread come to a consensus on a headlight? That is the missing piece to my XR650R puzzle.

I have been running a halogen Trail Tech X2 for over a year and while it looks good and works ok it does not have enough light output to be dodging deer here in Arkansas.

I like the 8" racelights, but I'm concerned they might not go over well with other drivers on the road. I also had a friend who had one on his XR with the H4 bulb conversion and it was not that impressive.

What else should I be looking at?

I'm 6'6", do you have a tall seat on your XRR?

The new line of LED lights from Baja Designs, is the state of the art, way to go. They are cheap, when considering other high performance lighting options. I have their LED helmet light, soooo much power and light.

Here's another rarely considered option...
