I was just wonering because I don't think he ever raced at Dakar (happy to be proved wrong) but I'm sure a XR650 would go head to head with a KTM

Johnie Campbell

Pic used to be there. See if it comes up on anyone elses computer. The poster might have lost the file so we may never find the pic again

Thanks guys, its got 12k on it and is super clean. The shop owner said he picked it up north while in the New England area but didnt say which state. The torque is awesome, real smooth and likes to play between 3500 and 6 grand.
I was lucky enough to have decent weather yesterday from 35 in the morning to 50 in the afternoon and put about 150 miles on it and wow this thing is fun and comfy. Its like riding a more comfy, torquier 650L you know still has that dirt bike feel.

Has anybody seen this rally XR? I don't know who's selling, but this thing is ALL set up for some adventure touring. Someone here on ADV, maybe?
