Silly question?

Any of you guys ever run two up on your XR650R? I recently rode an XR650L two up for a short ride and it wasn't so bad considering the versatilty of the bike, an R would be even better if two up is a possibilty. Thanks in advance.

My Gfriend and I do 2up urban riding with backpacks on the XR650R. It has BD passenger footpegs but It is far from ideal. She did love the KLR in comaprison.

Eek Naked Pig

Here's the pig in all her glory . She in the midst of getting her Baja Designs D/S kit! She already has her el cheapo Kenda 270 DOT tires and some vibro-matic Acerbis rally mirrors. Hopefully on Thursday she'll get her inspection and get plated.

Xrr








A work in progress... The XRR is a great platform to build on. Can't wait for a little off roading when the weather improves.

Thanks!

Thumb Here she is!

Here's the finished product.. I can't say enough about the guys at Baja Designs . Very helpful over the phone and email to help me sort out everything from my order to a finicky LED turn signal. I'd definitely recommend them for D/S stuff. And it works very well on the stock stator.
After seeing Bimotakid's bike me thinks I'll be doing black plastic all round. Very schweet .

Or you could just use Krylon Fusion spray paint. Yeah it gets scratched up, but you can always repaint it.
