Any DR 650's around?

Hi all

I've just managed to import and register my 2006 DR into UK after riding it here from Australia. I just wondered how many more were over in UK, anyone got one? I've had mine since new. It's now got over 63,000km's on it and is still going strong. It's even still on its original battery!!

Here's a photo of it. That's not me sitting on it by the way, it is a young horse herder lad out in the mountains of Kyrgystan

Anyone going to the Ace Cafe this weekend for the overlander adventure day?

"Don't worry" they said "It could be worse"
So I didn't worry and it did get worse!

My biggest ride yet. Oz to UK. Read all about it here

Did you submit a ride report in the Ride Reports section here by chance?

The Suit:What would you consider to be your greatest weakness?
Me: Honesty.
The Suit: Honesty? I don't think honesty could be construed as a weakness.
Me: I don't give a fuck what you think.
