Heidis light Dune Hopper

Honda XR 400 R

Heidi: "Since I belong to the short persons of this planet and I already paid dear for my wisdom, I'm convinced that a light 400 is exactly the right bike for me. To be honest: I never had so much fun with one of my former bikes as I have now with my XR!! Thanks to Laresa I even got the 2002 model"
