    The E ad is misleading! Only the '03 and prior E's had the good carbs. The '04 and later have the same carb as the S version. The E in the ad probably DOES have more HP than an S, but only because it has better cams and higher compression. It's benefit without the pumper carb is negligible. Oh and the E and S suspensions are the exact same.

    It was a cold, wet and nasty weekend in the Ozarks but it was still a great time, even though I was camping. It was sleeting while I took this picture and low 40's.

    Just over 24k miles on this bike since its purchase a year ago as of today. Best bike that I've ever purchased, without a doubt.

    Fellas,
    A friend of a friend, Andy J. told me I should drop a line in this thread and say Hello. Decided I needed bikes I could slide and get dirty. I am down in Franklin. Have truck and trailer, will travel if needed. Looking forward to moving some dirt. Would like to check out the Dirt Devil and the parts of Hickman Co. I have heard so much about.:evil

    hey GG - we don't ride with AJones. He's too slow, never want to climb any mountains and never picks up the check :deal

    Welcome to ADV - what do you ride?

    Sorry to hear that about AJ, guess I won't be able to ride with you guys then after all. I just got my license last month and traded in a YSR 50 for a plated XR650R. Should be a good bike to learn on. I don't like hills and I don't like mud. I don't like getting my dirt bike dirty.

    All kidding aside, looking forward to meeting you gentlepeople. The piggy is getting some much needed attention, previous owner didn't give her much. Hope to have it ready for a shakedown ride Friday before the rain (again).

    I have a Hawk (for sale) and an RZ (might be for sale) for when I want to profile at Puckett's, but I think I'm over that phase.

    BLT, me and dill-hole went to Renfro Valley this weekend.
    Had killer weather and trails on Saturday.
    Woke up Sunday to rain and sore bodies so we gladly came home a day early.

    Here's some cam footage - have a lot more but it's of my visor :cry

    Got one other video to post soon.

    HA! I thought I knew that name. I had run across you on the RZ/RD forum in the past.

    Don't bother talking about selling your RZ- I have seen it at Puckett's and frankly you would be a fool to let it go. (but you don't need me to tell you that, I am sure there are little voices in your head that have already told you).

    That's cool to know that there is another local Honda even if it is an XR-R. You and BajaDoug might get a chance to discuss "kicking" techniques while you wait for me and Andy on our slow ass XR-L's. :evil

    Does anybody know who can repair my taillight? A diode (I think) broke and I'm not sure how to reattach it.
