    I bought this bike a few years ago and I’m the 2nd owner!
    Wanted a XR but this came along in mint condition and the rest is history :)

    I use it quite a lot and find it a nice change from the 675...

    Anyone else want to post their other bike(s)

    Nice looking bike, my brother`s just finishing off a 1980 XL500R that he intends using during the winter months instead of his Monster. Attached is a picture of a XL185 I owned during a twelve month gap without a road bike. Learning to ride off road after nineteen years of road riding at the time was good fun.

    XL 185 was a cracking bike and back then Honda was making lots of small bikes as I went from a XL125 to an XR200...
    I must try to dig out some snaps of my old rides :)
