Nice, clean bikes... it's obvious you take care of them.

You can't go wrong with a few Honda air cooled thumpers... I'm fortunate to have a few myself, '94 XR650L, '01 XR400R, "02 XR200R. I've never had one leave me hiking out of the woods...

I appreciate that. We're big on pressure washing them (@ low PSI and not the chain!) after a romp in the mud and dirt. We run them quite a bit around on the old farmstead, which is mostly a lot of grass and weeds. When the vegetation gets taller, we usually end up with green footpegs, levers, and forks! Takes a bit of de-greaser and elbow grease with a stiff brush to get that stuff off, believe me.

You got that right! These rugged four-stroke singles remind me of little tractors or draught horses...plenty of low-end grunt. It's like they just lower their heads and pull harder on their harnesses when asked.

Did some dual sporting with some buddies today.
Some deep sand washes, minimum maintenance roads, trails, and even some twisty pavement. 125 mile day.
