After my girlfriend Colleen rode her Vespa from San Diego to San Felipe last month I knew it was time to get her a bike. The only thing she said she wanted was an Enduro. I found this 1981 XL 500 that had been in hibernation since 1992. A few nights of some simple wrenching and it fired right up! Mr. Honda knew what he was doing when he built these thumpers.
This thing is super fun and you can pick them up running or not for next to nothing. They are a blast to ride and have a nice 5 speed that you can roll down the freeway just fine with. Now go get your bike running and join us on the El Diablo Run...or don't!
