Here is a pic of my 2006 DL1000 I bought last April. It came with upgraded suspension and handlebars. I also traded seats from a 2011 DL650, so it's like riding a "new" bike.
So, I am thinking of buying a set of more dirt /gravel road oriented tires. Currently it is running tourence exp front and back. What would be a step up from the metzlers, and still be good at 65mph?
