I was just reading an article in Classic American Iron from a year ago posing a question about one of Joe Petrali’s flat track race bikes.

I was just flipping back through the blog and realized I never wrote up anything about my 2002 Honda XR650R. I’ve had a lot of XR600’s and other Honda singles, but I always wanted to have a go with an XR650R. The aircooled XR600R was retired after it’s final production year of 2000, the same… Continue reading 2002 Honda XR650R
