Awesome job on those DR's, I just saw a couple of photo's and they are a work of art.
I really considered the 700RR alternative but in the end I couldn't part with my DRZ so I opted for something bigger on the adventure spectrum. Having had the opportunity to ride the 1190, I certainly don't regret my decision. There is something unique about riding a big bike in the dirt and while they aren't the best solution for all things, they are a lot of fun.
If I didn't already have the DRZ for trail riding and serious exploring it would have been a more difficult choice. Got to admit, I feel incredibly fortunate when I wander into the shed these days.
A beach run sounds good, especially with helpers to pull the bike out of the soft stuff. Any chance you could fabricate a bash plate while I am there
