Who has the most tricked-out DR ?

Lets light this pipe one more time and pass it around.
I was reading the thread about Gaspipe's awesome XR650R project.... it got me thinking, if someone spent that kind of effort and money on a DR650, couldn't it be some sweetheart of an Adv bike?

Anyway, if some of you creative folks have a favorite project DR, show it off here. I just wanna learn and enjoy. I just can't get over how cheaply folks will sell their under-appreciated DR650's.... it ain't right

Zapp22, Thankyou for starting a DR650 thread! I was about to, but you beat me to it. I agree that this bike is underappreciated, even Peter Egan of CW fame agrees.

Mine is getting tricked out every month with more on the way.
So far: Eibach fork springs, Corbin seat, DJ jetting, skid plate, IMS tank, Renthal RM bend bars, Moose Racing hand guards, mirror extenders, Racer T exhaust (wav file here: http://savefile.com/files/8597285 ) 14-16t sprockets, Kientech airscrew, DRZ250 tail light, Suz tail rack, L-side engine case cover...planned: rear suspension and tires.

This may sound wierd, but I'm 6'2" and I like the look of XRL's being up in the air, I would like to get DR up higher on it's suspension,it looks more purposeful for the dirt, anyway to do this without breaking the bank?
