    Default Advice, comments about a Honda XR500

    To get back into the biker scene Iím considering buying a Honda XR500, an early 80ís model.
    Comments & advice concerning this model will be appreciated.

    Harold, this depends on what you want to use the bike for and what your budget is. Your age might also come into consideration.

    The XR might be a bit too tall but if you are looking for a thumper a BMW F650 single might be a better bet as it is lower, for example. The only practical advice to offer is that you should ride the bike and see if it suits you.

    A 1980's model might require more maintenance and parts may be a problem. Look into that aspect as well.

    Good luck with your search...
    Riding a straight and smooth road does not make a skillful rider.

    Also budget for a chest-wig to go with your manly ride!
    Ricers are bikers too!
