The big ?F? You?: Classified Moto?s Honda XR650L






It?s more that they?re so freakin? arrogant. Presumptuous. Uninformed. Typing their little quips and assuming the few minutes they?ve spent looking at a bike on a screen, trumps all the hours we spent on it. THEY are the experts after all.
?Your butt is gonna catch on fire with that exhaust. Good luck riding it in the rain. That thing ain?t gonna turn for shit. All your bikes look the same.? So say the armchair builders. Who have loads of time on their hands to opine, while the rest of us are hard at work trying to make stuff happen.

And we love it as much as that type despises it. It has all the signature cues of a Classified Moto machine, with the addition of two insanely huge knobby tires that probably aren?t even street legal. Except that they are.
And a massive, jack-shafted swing arm that probably doesn?t work as well as the original setup. Except that it does.

What was the inspiration" The first bike I ever rode was a Yamaha BW200. It was basically a little farm bike with huge balloon tires.
I loved it, but of course I had no frame of reference about how a bike should handle. It just looked cool and I had a blast riding it. That was almost 30 years ago, but it made quite an impression.
This looks like a rather complex build" It was a series of puzzles for us: it had chief mechanic Danik Herashchanka working overtime to get it together.
At first, we wanted to have a lower stance, similar to most other Classified Moto bikes. But then we kept thinking about the places we could take it?if it had the same travel as the XR650L.

I?ve seen some nice restorations of old BWs, but the tires are always too small. Still ridiculously big, but too small.
These things are huge and really complete the look.

The dune shots look amazing. What’s the story behind that" Photographer Adam Ewing and I drove to Pismo Beach, California, where we were able to let loose on the massive network of dunes there.
Even with me not knowing what I was doing, the bike was incredible. And even with the crazy machines that were there, the XR650L attracted lots of admirers. That was half the fun.
Despite not having a paddle tire, the bike was a beast. It climbed, jumped and drifted with ease. Even with a noob in the saddle.
