Great write up Lee! Subscribed!!! I can't wait to see how this turns out I've got a CD burned of my pix which I'll try to get to you so we can have some pix of you rather than just your entourage

How did the bike handle the droning highway though?

Just curious, as I'd love to build a DR650 for adventure touring. IMO, the best bike for that type of work.

For a windscreen a relatively cheap Universal Cycle one does wonders! It's what I used and would never think of doing another trip without it. Some chop up 990ADV windscreens too and adapt them to their stock headlight. I'll know how those work in 3 weeks. (990 on a TrailTech X2)
