p.s. nice DR setup!!! here's mine.
this picture was taken in Guanajuato. a must see IMO. considered the most beautiful city in the americas.

Our DR's are nearly identical twins. A question for you...I'm sporadically having trouble starting the bike, even when it's warm. When it starts without a problem, it starts instantly. Typically, it eventually starts when I hold the throttle 1/2 to wide open...and for a moment, there's some black smoke from the exhaust. Yesterday, when it wasn't starting, I partially opened and immediately closed the choke...and it started (the engine was still pretty warm). BTW, it's getting the same mileage as a KLR I'm traveling with. So, what's you're best guess on the cause of the problem?

Thanks for the heads up on's marked on my map as a "must see"! And BTW, I like your attitude!
