I'll start. No questions or insightful information. Just a shot of my '93 with ~14,000 miles on the clock.

First "L" in '93...XR's Only first shop bike. They freshened her up, shipped to me, I unloaded from the truck and threw it in the back of my truck. Maiden voyage to Mexico. This was at the shrine (or whatever it's called) inside the tunnel to Reale De Catorce.

First XR (75)...Rio Bravo, Texas. I was 12 years old, just saw Marty Smith at the Astrodome sporting #12. I mowed lawns to earn the $$$, dad paid what was left to buy her. I brought her home on a Tuesday, tore the top end open Wednesday, had a buddies mom take us to Pasadena Honda and grabbed new valve seals, installed them Friday and loaded her up Saturday morning and this was the maiden voyage. Dad snapped a pic...Been hooked ever since. 70 or more bikes later, still riding the Honda Thumpers. Lifelong love affair!!!

Something has been knawing at me as to what is different on this new XR. OK White Paint it obvious, old style graphics too.
