Do any of you know what kind of mileage I can expect from the 520RS? This is a California model.


P.S. If I buy, I'll be back soon for mod advice. Thanks in advance!
Do you plan on doing much street 50/50 or is this 90% dirt? I have a Beta trials bike and really like it and now that I am in the market for a DS bike really like the 520RS. But....I need to ride 45-60 minutes of freeway to get to the dirt. So far a DR650 seems good but I know the 520RS would be a killer DS bike.
