I have been riding for about 30yrs. off road and mostly mx racing.I currently race a 2010 crf450r, which I love the bike, and recently decided to ride on the street to save some miles on my truck , and to have some fun.I have been affraid of the street for a long time , because of idiot drivers on cell phones, I said the hell with it. I am getting my motorcycle learners permit this weekend and am picking up a lightly used 07 XR650R coverted to street from Pete`s cycle on saturday. The bike has a Baja designs conversion kit, XR`s only exhaust,XR`s only sideplate that opens the airbox , and other stuff, the bike looks like new. I am looking for other riders in my area to ride with, hit the roads and find some trails.
