Phil thanks for posting this. I should be back in Prescott in a couple weeks, maybe we can go on another ride?Christian taking the new ExPo Honda out for a spin.
I would love that, but I was laid off two days ago. It looks like I will be bumming around Phoenix for a bit looking for a full-time job and a place to live. I wish I could stay in Prescott, but got to go where I can find work.Phil thanks for posting this. I should be back in Prescott in a couple weeks, maybe we can go on another ride?
Thanks. I don't get much credit; the PO who did the build up had it done. But I like it a lot. In a sea of XRs with red and natural plastic tanks, having a steel tank with the old-school paint job is worth losing some fuel capacity. (And the 2.8 gallon capacity is almost always enough.)Mike: Your bike looks awesome! I really like the racing stripes.
All molded black from the git-go. Probably just as well, at least in my case, as my Giant Loop MoJavi bags are sitting right across the top of the side panels and have already scuffed the plastic significantly.Were those plastics painted or are they molded black?
Funny that you should mention it, as the unit is starting to lose contrast and I therefore bought a Trailtech Vapor Unit which does all of the things this one did plus some others. Plus it has an available holder that is also slicker. http://www.trailtech.net/vaporCool, how does the information readout work? Does it have a tach in there?
I see the point, but I'm unlikely to be on a long trip in the wild without a support vehicle with some fuel on it. If I was really adventure touring instead of play biking, I'd pretty much have to break down and get a bigger one.The 2.8 is almost always not quite enough for me, reserve is used a lot for me and I get nervous. I have a Clarke in the mail coming now.
Thanks. There are plans to carry the XR on the back occasionally using my Joe Hauler carrier. I think it will work OK on smooth roads; the Jeep's rear bumper is attached pretty well.I envy your Jeep, lots of nice toys there.
