I guess I agree that the XS650 motor is better looking ... in a British twin wanna-be kinda way.

But you also get a lot of extra weight for not a lot of extra HP with the XS.



As far as singles go, I think the SR is right up there with some of the nicest lookers in bike history .. its very clean!

Thousands of Asians and Europeans must think so too as it remains for sale to this day, almost unchanged, since the mid-70s!

Now a question, to any single lover, not just RD. Forgive my ignorance, it's not that I have any queer-arse, snobbish attitude towards smaller, lesser powered bikes; I just have no experience with them: except 2-strokes.

What is their appeal? I understand small and light from my RGV. What is the thrill you get from a single?

I re-iterate, I am not having a dig, I am really interested.

I owned an SR500-F 79. Did all the tricks carb/pipe. It was a good bike that got me to work and back but seriously lacked horsepower. I think stock it had 26hp at the rear wheel. One of the mags of the day tried hard to do cams and porting but the design of the cylinder head was not condusive to making a lot of power. They finally gave up. A BSA Goldstar would runaway and hide from an SR. In its day.

No, you're right. My Triple Trumpet will though.

But then they're not my brand of wheelie. I like the kind of wheelie that's hard not to pull because you've exited the turn right in the meat of the zone and the front begins to lift just 'coz. Point of balance wheelies are difficult to do and require talent - no question. But I like the wheelies the bike pulls just 'coz it's just hit Millenium Falcon warp III and you wanna make sure you're not pointed at anything which is gunna stop you suddenly.

Oh Yummy!



All 'cept the engine bars. Good insurance though I guess. An' it's only a 400! My squeeze would look good on it. Trouble is she won't even get on the back of mine, let alone get her license. At least I don't have to look for I-need-to-do-this-tour-on-my-own-Darling excuses. +9!
