I loved the one I had. Put a street kit on it with signals and all, got it plated and had a blast with it. One thing though, I can't understand all of the engine work people do to these bikes. Whenever I rode the thing it felt like I could use another tire or two out back because the thing would spin up the rear in almost any gear. I loved the bike, but I ended up crashing almost every time I went out. Probably a measure of my poor dirt skills rather than a dig on the XR. I would buy another one but there isn't much dirt around here. Have fun guys, those things can really move.
