After a full summer of negotiating the purchase of this 2001 DR650, it was finally mine on Dec. 9.





I have big plans for this thing. A couple of rides after arriving in Az. I have an opportunity to load up my gear and hit the desert for a few days, I rolled out before noon.





Less than 5 miles and the fun begins.





One of the objectives of this ride was to see just what the DR is all about.





A little noisy as I enter Dragoon.





A little pavement to Manzora road, then I got to race the train for several miles. I had to let him go so I could cross the tracks just before pulling into Cochise AZ.









Shortly I was on the Wilcox flats.





The sign tells it all.





I fuel up and head for the Page ranch road. Having a nice cruise in the foothills of the Dos Cabeza range, I came to a gate and private property, I turned back to hit the hiway.
