I am selling my loved Honda XR600R.  This is a big bike with lots of power and incredible torque at any RPM.  I am the second owner of this bike and it has been garaged since new.  I put the second and third rear tire on the bike 5 years ago.  I have had dreams of making this street legal and taking off for a trip deep into Baja Mexico on a camping excursion but my 5 year old marriage has beat down my dream into reality.  As such.  the wear on the last tire is embarrassing nothing as you can see in the picture  I picked up this bike with another XR when I purchased some land in Texas.  I have a bill of sales for the bike but no title.  I also have all the current contact information for the seller of the property/bike and under contract he needs to give me the title but I never got the title.  I had the carburetor cleaned prior to my last time to ride the bike on my own land in California around  4 years ago.  The bike has not been ridden since -but the tank has been drained as well as the carburetor bowl complete empty over this period of time -which is the way I store all of my Honda's.  I am confident that a quick fill and a few aggressive kicks will bring this engine back to life.  The bike is all original but the exhaust pipe (original spark plugs. air filter. plastics. rims. chain and sprockets. handle bars and seat.  There is no rust on this bike.  I do not know the milage but could not figure out how to advertize this bike on ebay without putting in an answer so I put in 1000 miles on dirt.  I am entirely guessing on the milage but the bike has only had 3 rear tires on it and the last tire is like new.  I am willing to do the hand holding to ship the bike at your expense but do not have an idea the shipping charges.  I shipped the bike from Texas to California for around $600.  There are likely other lower cost ways to ship that what I used such as UShip. com.  I can crate for an additional charge.  Below is some information from Wikipedia on the XR series of big bikes.  I'll take paypal or a personal check with a 14 day holding period.  I will not ship out of the country.  

The Honda XR600R is a very popular off-road motorcycle with an air-cooled single-cylinder. nbsp;four-stroke engine.

The currently available road oriented XR650L model is similar to the XR600R with an engine of more displacement but lower compression and less horsepower.
