Trice, I'm about 200 miles north of you in the hill country, mostly limestone hills and cactus. Rocks are the best things grown in the fields up here . I'll get my camera out and take a picture of the land I ride my BMW 1150 GSA on.
The KTM 690 R comes in at 305 pounds dry and 320 wet according to sources on the internet. That's a whole pound heavier than the published wet weight on a drz (and may have cured my desire to own another drz).
