Cool pic Grreatdog. I think you need another one of these.

You rode that thing enough to wear the paint off of the tank. Good job! I've never seen another XL600 with paint worn off there.

I loved the seat, power and cornering. But I had to ditch it after my second right ankle surgery for something with electric start. Doctor's orders. Otherwise I might still be riding it.

That patina was mostly from the PO that wracked up 20,000 or so miles on it. I put another few thousand more on it and sold it back to him. AFAIK he is still riding it three years later.

The reason it was perched on the log was a bent dogbone link. This was right after the PO bought it back from me. We finished the ride after he made some precise adjustments.

Always had a thing for XR's. My first bike was an XR200 when I was a teenager and rode it all over the place. Simple and reliable. Rebuilt a 2000 XR6 which is a bit of a show pony at the moment (hard to bring yourself to scratch new OEM guards!) as well as an XRR for a dirt pig and an XRV for touring. Would like an XR400 if I could find an ok starting point....have a few parts stashed away in the treasure box.
