If it's a DR650, show us a pic and tell us about it.

i seriously, s e r i o u s l y, doubt a ktm/husky/bmw/drz would have offered the same trouble-free, rediculously reliable experience that this humble bike gives me every single day. ADV is full of posts to the contrary, so hate on haters, while you're hating at the dealership with your obligatory brand-specific matching shirt/jacket/hat, we'll be riding and smiling.

it truly is THE swiss army knife of motorcycles. IMHO/experience.
While you're so busy stereotyping people and bikes you're to prejudiced to know or care about, I'm busy having the same exact experience with my bike(s), thanks

do we need to compare the amount of "hey, look at me and my TE610" to the amount of "hey, look at me and my DR650" threads?

Lighten the fuck up Francis...you DR guys take yourselves far too seriously

Seriously? There are a thousand other threads you can read. If you don't like DR owners and don't want to read about their bikes, then don't click on this thread.

That's kinda the whole point!! I think the TE610 is a great bike and I hope you have all the threads you want.
