Had to sink down the bike for my wife, so i cutted the underside off the foam and could keep the shape off the seat.
What you can`t see, is the windshield from a DR650R, keeps a lot off wind away.
The bike is the cheapest i ever had. It is from 1996, first owner, beside the bracking discs, nothing replaced, never been at the dealer for service, checked the valves three times and never cleaned the carburatores.
Ok, now the third clutch, that is all and the third batterie.
Still running every day and returns home, always save.

Wow, that is impressive. Looks like the rest of us pamper our bikes, compared to you.
