    So, I had a few people ask me where my trip report was, and I realized that would probably be a good idea as I haven't really heard of anyone who has attempted a Central and South America trip on an XRL, so here it is:

    Made it Mazatlan today via the ferry after a mad dash through La Paz yesterday trying to get a tourist card. About to head out to Autozone to pick up some break cleaner. Regards!

    Well, at least the chain is chained to the bike and then to a fence pole. So, they would need to first break the chain/lock and then lift the bike. I will add a kill switch and a front disc lock as well. I also need more farkles and surely a cover for the winter. Sigh. There's even a Yamaha V-Max that noone cares to steal and it doesn't have any locks or anything. Hell, I would love to steal a classic V-Max well before my XR.

    Hey, Ulyses,

    Happy to see the report. Isn't it fun to travel and get bad information (visitor cards at the ferry? airport? no where??).

    Be sure to tell elsalvadorklr that you are going through Central America. We all really want to know about his bar! He has talked so much about riding and drinking with him that we can't stand it anymore. A full report with pictures is required.

    Stay safe.

    PD

    What I am saying is that SOME people think a great, correct in every way write up makes what they say 100% true 100% of the time.

    Not so.

    Your spelling and grammar sucks! Get a PHD will ya. Do you ride another bike besides the Honda?

    The DG is a great price...I didn't see it when I was shopping or I might have picked it up. I think I still still like my Big Gun better tho, looks alot sharper imo, and came with the quiet insert and spark screen included. Plus its very well put together with some nice extra features. Its also a little longer than the DG, which might help some with the noise factor. With the quiet insert in its actually pretty reasonable sound wise, no earplugs needed trail riding, but I do use them for the highway running. And it really helped the power alot from the bottom to the top. And its WAY lighter than the stocker :thumb I believe I picked it up for $243 total with free shipping.

    I'm a big fan of aftermarket silencers, you gain a big performance boost and lose weight, plus it just enhances the desmogging/derestricting/jetting/slide drilling and opened up airbox and free flowing filter we pretty much all do anyways.....plus they look damn good :D

    What size 606s are you guys running? Does it make sense to get the 130s?

    I just took an awesome ride all around the beautiful mountains that surround Frenchmans lake in northern california.....talk about beaufiful scenery :D:ricky:beer Plus there was some challenging terrian to have fun on as well.....couldn't have asked for a better ride. I stopped at a beautiful spot overlooking the lake from above as the sun was setting, was going to get a couple pics for you guys, but I didn't want to pull off my gear to get to the camera...sorry, I'll do better next time :wink:

    I'm an outdoor guy like most of you, and I can't stay sane without a beautiful ride out in the woods, watching some animals, working on my riding skills, smelling the beautiful air, and enjoying the beauty of nature. Thats one thing you can't experience first hand on a full-fledged street bike......so the xr will always have a spot in the garage :D
    I guess I do have xr love :lol3

    Honda, I'm ready to market :clap :clap
