Has anyone successfully found and installed some short levers for our TR650s? I don't want to cut down the existing ones. I want to use those for back-ups.

Nice! How tall is she? You may want to take off the huge metal license plate bracket ASAP. They tend to cause tail breakages.

It really is and for me its 10 min away from my home. I saw a herd of 13 deer grazing and basking in the sun on the West side of the peak. It was a sight to see. Didn't get a good pic.

Good call Dorito. We thought about the G650GS but I know she likes the DR650 and it may be a bit taller in the seat than the BMW but it is significantly lighter and less mulah in the used market.
